March Primary Lines awards posted on January 23, 2013 CHANGES

  • Construction of Primary Lines utilized pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC).

  • SAP: Projections and pay summaries utilized pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC)

  • Secondary Lines: Projection and pay summaries utilized pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC).
  • Augmentation: Awards utilized pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC) in award process.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Tentative Agreement ratifies on February 28, 2013 the following to occur for March:

1.  All pairing with DH @50% PNC will be reloaded in Open Time (Option 11 and 44)  on 3/1 utilizing trip values with 100% DH pay and credit. 

2.   Individual Pay Summaries: On 3/1, Options 5 and 2 will start reflecting 100% DH credit values for all applicable pairings: therefore, your total credit (TCR) will be increased or decreased accordingly. 

Note:  At this time, your individual OBL column and MAX column cannot be synchronized with the change to the TCR.   In other words, it will remain as if the new DH pay and credit was not included. As a result, In-Flight will not be monitoring the over and under TCR related to OBL and MAX columns if it is due to the corrected DH values.

3ETB:  Opens 2/22, all March activity processed and awarded between 2/22 and 3/1 will utilize the pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC). On 3/1 and beyond, all March ETB activity processed and/or awarded by the Electronic Trade Board Desk will utilize the 100% DH corrected values.  Additionally, FLICA, at the same time (3/1) will display trips utilizing 100% DH pay and credit. 

4.   Pairing Display:  On 3/1, the March trip credit will start reflecting 100% DH pay and credit in Options 1, 2, 5, 11 and 44.  However, Option 4 will continue to show DH @50% PNC on all pairings flight attendants share with the pilots like the A319/320/321, 737 and E190 where pairing numbers are exactly the same.   Yet, Option 4 will reflect 100% DH pay and credit on pairings that are not numbered the same as the pilot pairing numbers like the 21M, FAD, 32J, FLS and TI  flying.

5.  AIL and LTO Activity: On 3/1, the pairings that originate on March 2nd and beyond will be processed and awarded with the 100% DH pay and credit.

6. Overprojection: If overprojection is a result of corrected DH values, the affected flight attendant is not required to downward project because the original trips were constructed and awarded under different rules.  However, anyone who exceeds their monthly maximum and wants to lower his/her TCR may do so by dropping any trip(s) he/she elects before the bid month of March begins. After the bid month begins, any overprojection trip drop request(s) for the aforementioned reason will require the mutual consent of Crew Scheduling.

7.  Carryover Duty Periods: If the pairing originates in the bid month of February but has a duty period(s) that checks-in on March 2, 3 or 4 it will reflect the DH @50% PNC pairing value but will be paid at 100% pay and credit.   Carryover duty periods with deadheads cannot be corrected because they are in a separate February computer file.  Therefore, the carryover duty periods (on Mar, 2, 3 or 4) will be given the corrected values by way of a manual process.  The Claims Office is in receipt of the affected pairings* and will automatically update the applicable flight attendants? pay after the completion of the last duty period of the pairing.  If your terminating duty period is within the Claims Office hours, the corrected value will be posted that day.  Any carryover duty period arriving after Claims Office hours will have the corrected values posted the following business day.  

*The affected pairing numbers are listed on the final page of this document.

Note: Overprojection:  If by correcting your carryover duty period value you exceed the MAX you will not be required to lower your TCR.  However, in the event that you would like to drop a trip of your choice, as an exception, contact a Shift Supervisor as soon as possible after the termination of your pairing.

8.  Legality Reminder:  Just as it is today, deadhead time is not figured in 30 in 7 or 35 in 7 calculations. 

April-Primary Lines awards posted on February 23, 2013

  • Construction of Primary Lines utilized pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC).   This primary line construction process will not change until flight attendants have completely separate pairing numbers (system wide).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Tentative Agreement ratifies on February 28th the following to occur for April:

1.  All pairing with DH @50% PNC will be reloaded in Open Time (Option 11 and 44) on 3/1 utilizing trip values with 100% DH pay and credit. 

2.   Individual Pay Summaries: On 3/1, Options 5 and 2 will start reflecting 100% DH credit values for all applicable pairings: therefore, your total credit (TCR) will be increased or decreased accordingly

Note:  At this time, your individual OBL column and MAX column cannot be synchronized with the change to the TCR.  In other words, it will remain as if the new DH pay and credit was not included.  As a result, In-Flight will not be monitoring the over and under TCR related to OBL and MAX columns if it is due to the corrected DH values.

3. SAP:  Opens at 18:00 on February 24th utilizing pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC).  Effective 3/1 the pairing values will reflect 100% DH pay and credit.  As an exception, the generic expansion screen will continue to reflect the DH @50% PNC value on all pairings flight attendants share with the pilots like the A319/320/321, 737 and E190 because the pairing numbers are exactly the same. However, when performing a legality check, the correct 100% pay and credit will be considered for all deadheads.  The SAP functions related to processing and awarding will be computed with the corrected values if a DH is involved. 

Note:  After the DH corrected values are loaded, it would be prudent to validate all SAP entries, from the 2/24 thru 2/28, if a deadhead(s) is involved.  Legality Check procedures are located on page 32 of the SAP Guide. To locate the guide go to WINGS - find Quick Links- click on  Reference Guide then go to the SAP Guide dated April 10, 2010. 

4.  Secondary Lines:  Construction of the lines will be done utilizing pairing values that reflect 50% DH pay and credit because flight attendants are still utilizing the pilot pairing computer file. This secondary line construction process will not change until flight attendants have completely separate pairing numbers (system wide).  Immediately after awards are posted on 3/12, the affected pairings will be reloaded utilizing 100% DH pay and credit and the flight attendant line value in Option 5 and 2 will be adjusted. 

 5. Augmentation:  All processing will utilize pairing values that reflect 100% DH pay and credit.  Look in Option 11 or 44 for open trips and the pairings will have correct DH values on 3/1.  Augmenting flight attendants will not be allowed to add trips to his/her Secondary line if such time would exceed the maximum of 90. 

6.  Pairing Display:  On 3/1 the April pairing credit will start reflecting 100% DH pay and credit in Options 1, 2, 5, 11, and 44.  However, Option 4 continues to show DH @50% PNC on all pairings flight attendants share with the pilots like the A319/320/321, 737 and E190 because the pairing numbers are exactly the same.   Yet, Option 4 will reflect 100% DH pay and credit on pairings that are not numbered the same as the pilot pairing numbers like the 21M, FAD, 32J, FLS and TI  flying.

7.  ETB, AIL and Reserve LTO Activity:  All ETB, AIL and Reserve LTO will be processed and awarded with  100% DH pay and credit as corrected values.   All carryover trips from March into April will reflect the 100% DH pay and credit.

8. Overprojection:   If overprojection is a result of corrected DH values the affected flight attendant is not required to downward project because the original trips were constructed and awarded under different rules.  However, anyone in this position that wants to lower his/her TCR may do so by dropping any trip(s) he/she elects before the month of  April  begins.  After the month begins, any overprojection trip drop request(s) for the aforementioned reason will require the mutual consent of Crew Scheduling.

9. Carryover Duty Periods:  If the pairing originates in March but has a duty period(s) that checks-in on April 1, 2 or 3 it will reflect the DH @ 100% pay and credit as of March 1. Therefore the corrected values will be in your TCR when it comes to your individual pay summaries (Options 2 and 5) and when you open SAP.  

10. Legality Reminder:  Just as it is today, deadhead time is not figured in 30 in 7 or 35 in 7 calculations.

Effective with the MAY-Primary Lines awards and until further notice

  • Construction of Primary Lines utilized pilot pairing values (DH @50% PNC). This primary line construction process will not change until flight attendants have completely separate pairing numbers (system wide).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Tentative Agreement ratified on February 28th the following to occur:

1.  In the Printed Pairing Package all trips showing DH @50% PNC will be loaded in Open Time (Option 11 and 44) with values of 100% DH pay and credit. 

2.  Individual Pay Summaries: Options 5 and 2 will start reflecting 100% DH credit values for all applicable pairings: therefore, your total credit (TCR) will change. 

Note:  At this time, your individual OBL column and MAX column cannot be synchronized with the change to the TCR.  In other words, it will remain as if the new DH pay and credit was not included.  As a result, In-Flight will not be monitoring the over and under TCR related to OBL and MAX columns if it is due to the corrected DH values.

3.  SAP:  When SAP opens the pairing values for primary lines and carryover duty period(s) will reflect 100% DH pay and credit. As an exception, the generic expansion screen will continue to reflect the DH @50% PNC value  on all pairings flight attendants share with the pilots like the A319/320/321, 737 and E190 because the pairing numbers are exactly the same. However, when performing a legality check, the correct 100% pay and credit will be considered for all deadheads. Your TCR will reflect the correct projected pay.

 Remember:  It is always prudent to validate all SAP entries to ensure they do not exceed the maximum or go below the minimum.  Legality Check procedures are located on page 32 of the SAP Guide.  To locate the guide go to WINGS - find Quick Links- click on  Reference Guide then go to the SAP Guide dated April 10, 2010. 

4.  Secondary Lines:  Construction of the lines will be done utilizing pairing values that reflect 50% DH PNC because the Flight Attendant Line Building Program still utilizes the pilot pairing computer file. This secondary line construction process will not change until flight attendants have completely separate pairing numbers (system wide).  Look in Option 2 or 5 for pairings within the flight attendant lines that were constructed at 50% DH PNC for the corrected DH value.

5. Augmentation:  All processing will utilize pairing values that reflect 100% DH pay and credit.  Look in Option 11 or 44 for open trips and the pairings will have correct DH values.  Augmenting flight attendants will not be allowed to add trips to his/her Secondary line if such time would exceed the maximum. 

6. Pairing Display:  Effective with the bid month of May pairing credit will always reflect 100% DH pay and credit in Options 1, 2, 5, 11, and 44.  However, Option 4 will continue to show DH @50% PNC on all pairings flight attendants share with the pilots like the A319/320/321, 737 and E190 because the pairing numbers are exactly the same.   Yet, Option 4 will reflect 100% DH pay and credit on pairings that are not  numbered the same as the pilot pairing numbers like the 21M, FAD, 32J, FLS and TI  flying.

7.  ETB, AIL and Reserve LTO Activity:  All ETB, AIL and Reserve LTO will be processed and awarded with 100% DH pay and credit as corrected values.   All carryover trips from April into May will reflect the 100% DH pay and credit.

8.  Overprojection:  The corrected DH values will no longer result in overprojection. The normal overprojection scenarios will continue to fall under the contractual provisions of the East Collective Bargaining Agreement in Section 9.  

9. Legality Reminder:  Just as it is today, deadhead time is not figured in 30 in 7 or 35 in 7 calculations. 

List of Affected Pairing Numbers/Flt Numbers with Deadheads from the Bid Month of February

The Claims Office is in receipt of these affected pairing numbers and will automatically update the applicable flight attendants? pay after the completion of the last duty period of the pairing.  If your terminating duty period is within the Claims Office hours, the corrected value will be posted that day.  Any carryover duty period arriving after Claims Office hours will have the corrected values posted the following business day.
