Dear Members,

New Jumpseat Policy Begins May 1

The current jumpseat policy will remain in effect until April 30, 2013.

Effective May 1, 2013, the following policy will go into effect:

Non-revenue passengers will be processed for unoccupied passenger seats.

After the completion of this process, all unoccupied cabin jumpseat(s) will be awarded by the boarding priority as specified in Paragraphs 37.H.1., and Flight Attendant System Seniority as defined in Section 20, Seniority as displayed on the Flight Attendant Seniority Card. If no Flight Attendant has requested and presented his/her jumpseat form to the agent thirty (30) minutes prior to departure, the forms will be accepted by the agent thereafter and the jumpseat(s) will be awarded on a first -come, first-served basis up to flight close out. Once awarded at close out, all cabin jumpseat awards are final and will not be rescinded or reissued even if the flight is subsequently delayed. The most senior Flight Attendant(s), listing for the jumpseat(s), at her/his option, may request and receive the jumpseat thirty (30) minutes prior to boarding.

A Flight Attendant will be awarded the jumpseat regardless of potential weight restrictions up until close out of the flight and will not be removed once awarded the jumpseat for weight restricted flights.


Jumpseat Seniority Integration Card

A new Jumpseat / Seniority Integration Date (SID) card has been printed for each CLT, DCA and PHL based flight attendant.

Flight attendants will continue to use the Jumpseat / Seniority Integration Date (SID) Card when requesting the flight attendant jumpseat. This card verifies the date that is used by agents to place flight attendants requesting the jumpseat in seniority order.

Cards have been received in the base and can be picked up at the Crew Service Center.

The new card is smaller in size and matches the size of the I.D. badge. The new (SID) card also contains the instructions that a jumpseat rider is not to be removed for weight and balance reasons.
