Dear Members,

The Rules (Pilot FARs) Are Changing

As a result of legislation and FAA rulemaking, new Pilot FARs affecting Flight and Duty Time Limitations for pilots are scheduled to take effect within a year. The new rules are the result of several industry events and initiatives by the FAA and Congress to address pilot fatigue. The new pilot FARs vary greatly from the current standards.

How does this affect Flight Attendants at US Airways (East)? The majority of Flight Attendant lines and pairings are the same as East US Airways pilots. This is in accordance with two "Me Too" clauses in our contract - Section 9A.1 and Section 10.L. As a result, the changes to Pilot FARs will have an impact on our pairings and lines once those changes take effect. The company has indicated they will implement the new pilot FARs in line and pairing construction as soon as October, 2013.

In response to requests from US Airways AFA members, our International Office produced and mailed a booklet with a detailed overview of the new pilot FARs as they relate to our flying, schedules, pairings and lines. The booklet has been mailed to all East Flight Attendants homes. Some of you may have already received the publication. If the mailing does not arrive at your home, please contact your Local Council for a duplicate copy. We encourage you to take the time to read this important information. Updated information will be provided as it becomes available.

Your MEC Officers
