In anticipation of the start of the annual vacation process outlined in Section 12 of our JCBA, we highlight the following key dates that are critical components of the vacation timeline:
The JCBA vacation bidding process includes changes for Flight Attendants from all three of the pre-merger airlines. It is anticipated that Flight Attendants will have more flexibility than ever before for bidding, buybacks, splitting, and trading. We encourage you to begin the process of reviewing the language in Section 12 of the JCBA for additional information regarding vacation accrual, pay, and processes.
In the weeks ahead, you should expect additional information to be published regarding the vacation bidding processes. In addition, during the month of August you should anticipate the introduction of a “test” vacation bidding environment that will provide you with hands on opportunities to practice various bidding scenarios.
