Flight Attendants are strongly encouraged by your MEC Safety, Health & Security Committee to review and familiarize themselves with the recently acquired and new configuration of the 767-300 known as 76L – V2.

The first 76L – V2 aircraft entered into service on July 2, 2019 and can be identified by aircraft number #6684. The two (2) remaining aircraft #6685 and #6686 are scheduled to enter service in late July. 

There are three (3) Emergency Differences of which it is imperative Flight Attendants are aware when working this new 76L configuration: 

  • This aircraft does NOT have an evacuation alarm
  • The Emergency Light Switch is located at 1-L instead of 2-L
  •  To contact the Flight Deck in an Emergency press #1 on the handset for Pilot Alert. 

Your MEC Safety, Health & Security Committee strongly encourages you to use your eFAOM via the Link device for all of your safety checks on every aircraft type.  It is especially important that you do so on newly configured aircraft; doing so ensures we are not only meeting the regulatory requirement of being familiar with the necessary functions to be performed in an emergency on the aircraft (CFR 91.533.B), we are also putting ourselves in the best possible position to be able to respond effectively in any emergency situation. 

If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Health, Safety and Security Committee representative for additional information.
