If you got'em wear'em
if you don't go get one. Holiday attire items can be worn starting
December 01, 2012 through January 02, 2013. For a list of
appropriate holiday attire items please check out the P&PM on wings
for the company issued guidelines.
Heavy Gauge Sweaters
have arrived and are being delivered. An IT issue on the TwinHill
website has shown that sweaters are backordered until March 2013.
This is incorrect. Sweaters are being delivered now with a delivery
time between 2 to 4 weeks after the order is placed. We have only
encountered four orders that are taking longer than 4 weeks due to
being an uncommon size. So place your orders. Remember that the
first sweater must be purchased by you and all future sweaters will
be replaced via the wear and tear process. Sweaters are running true
to size to the current knit wear cardigan in the uniform program. So
if you wear a medium you will want to order a medium. However, if
you want to be absolutely sure about the fit try one on at you bases
uniform fit line. Information on the location and times of operation
are available at the crew service centers in your base. Orders may
be placed using Credit Card, Payroll Deduction, Account Credit or a
combination of Credit Card/Account Credit. Account Credit will be
the balance amount that you may have left from the original $850.00
that was given to each flight attendant at the start of this uniform
program. Please keep in mind that those account credits will be
zeroed out at the end of 2012. Don't throw away your money. If you
have account credits use them or you'll lose them.

With the New Year
coming upon us at the speed of light it is a time for starting anew.
A great way to do that is with new uniform pieces. YEAH! Who doesn't
like new clothes? So, ask yourself this question... with your
uniform on take a twirl in front of that full length mirror in your
house. If you don't have a mirror or you're not the kind of person
who twirls ask your BFF. If your BFF isn't available for a
consultation try asking the crew mate sitting on the jump seat next
to you who has no filter when it comes to their thoughts... How do I
look? (You may want to have a tissue handy if you choose option
three). Whatever option you choose if your uniform pieces are
looking dull, a little gray, shiny, or (I'm just going to say it)
pushing the seams beyond their limits maybe it's time to place an
order. It's simple, fast and easy to do. Just go to your crew
service center with the uniform pieces you DO NOT NEED and place
your order for all of the items you do need. Turn the old one you
have with you over to the crew service center and bring in the rest
when the new ones arrive. You have 14 days after your new uniform
pieces arrive to drop off any outstanding old pieces. Failure to do
so will convert those items from company expense to employee
expense. So remember to take them in.

Q & A:
Q: Do I have to wear the company scarf or can I wear my own? I don't
think its warm enough for a lot of the places we go to.
A: No, you don't have to wear the company scarf. Yes, you can wear
your own. However, your own scarf must be blue, black or gray and of
a conservative style. Thank you for your question.
Q: Last month my crew was checked by the FAA and two of us were told
we had too many bags. Crew members are exempt from bag limitations
A: Yes and no. Crew members are exempt from the one carry on and one
personal item the passengers are held to, but you are limited to one
carry on, one tote, one personal item. Please keep in mind that your
lunch tote bags, manuals, and coats do not count in the three items.
Thank you for your question.
