Council 42 December 2019 Schedule Update (Nov 05, 2019)

AFA COUNCIL 42 DECEMBER 2019 SCHEDULE UPDATE

The December flight attendant schedule month is a 30 day month; November 30 through December 29.  There is a paid holiday on Wednesday, December 25th – Christmas.

Line averages are between 78:50 – 87:26

877 total domestic line holders, including 58 Spanish language positions.

697 total international line holders, including:

Japanese language        26

Portuguese language    42

International Spanish   70

Reserve lines for December:

December is a 30 day month with 5 full weekends and 1 paid holiday (Christmas).  Due to having 5 weekends, there are no lines with every weekend off. 4 lines have 4 weekends off, 8 lines have 2 weekends off and 18 lines have 1 weekend off. There is 1 line each-that have 4 Fridays, 4 Saturdays or 4 Sundays off.  With a 30 day month, we were able to return to true patterns.  4 on/3 off, 6 on/4 off and the pattern for 10 days off for those who like to pick up on days off.  4 lines have a 6 day off stretch, 3 lines have a 7 day off stretch, 2 lines have an 8 day off stretch and 1 line each –has a 9 or 10 day off stretch.

There are 13 lines with Christmas off.

Again, for December – the company would not allow any lines with more than 12 days off.  

For Purser and Language-

 The company required at least one line with 4 days on - starting Dec 24th , to ensure coverage on Christmas. This limited the days and patterns due to most languages having only 1 or 2 lines. We tried to have a line with as many weekends off as possible and also at least one line with Christmas off. For NLD, there is only 1 line for reserve, therefore we could not offer Christmas off.

Your AFA schedule committee appreciates feedback and is happy to answer questions you may have regarding line construction.  Feedback/inquiries can be sent to cwise@unitedafa.org. A complete system wide scheduling report is available from the Central Schedule Committee (CSC) on the unitedafa.org website. Below are your AFA Council 42 schedule committee members.
