  • If released, Reserves will be so advised by the automated communication system. 
  • If only a portion of the Ready Reserves can be released, they will be those at the bottom of the respective TMAC list. (i.e. those with the most time accrued.)  Keep in mind, those assigned Ready Reserve will not receive a Priority CCS Message advising of this assignment.  Flight Attendants assigned Ready Reserve are required to remain available for contact
