Standing together with one voice while backing up and validating United AFA advocacy regarding the challenges we face with our current Positive Check-in process combined with Flight Attendant Aircraft Boarding times & Crew Briefing challenges, Inflight management announced details of our New Check-In Process in the December 12, 2018 Inflight Services Weekly.
Beginning January 1, 2019, we will no longer be required to go to the base prior to our flight. On a trial basis, whether at a base or non-base location, the dedicated check-in location is the departure gate. We must all be mindful that our full cooperation is necessary for the success of the trial period. Reporting to the departure gate by the required check-in time will be big part of ensuring the success of the trial period.
