New Jumpseat Policy Begins
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will not be rescinded or reissued even if the flight is subsequently delayed.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
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
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.
