As set forth in Section 4.I. of our JCBA, Holiday Pay is calculated using a formula that takes into account the number of credited hours flown during the holiday pairing and the time away from home during the pairing. A Flight Attendant’s hours away from home begins at the pairing check-in time and ends at the conclusion of the scheduled debriefing time upon return to the home domicile. Premium pay is not included when determining holiday pay.
