Section 3.I.12 of our JCBA was implemented in 2017 and provides Flight Attendants on trip pairings where the initial segment is a deadhead to a non-Base location the opportunity, with prior approval from Crew Scheduling, to elect to check-in at the deadhead destination which will be her/his new point of origin. Flight Attendants who wish to utilize this provision of their contract must adhere to the following stipulations:
Additionally, Flight Attendants exercising this election shall be responsible for her/his own transportation to the new point of origin She/he will also be responsible for providing Crew Scheduling with a contact number for use in the event of reassignment.
A Flight Attendant electing to check-in downline who complies with these requirements shall receive her/his regular pay for the scheduled deadhead segment as provided for in Section 3.I.1. of the JCBA.
If you have any questions or are unclear about any of these requirements, we recommend that you contact your Local Council office.
