Phone call from Alan Bobo last night

 
Dear Fellow Flight Attendants,
Alan Bobo called last night regarding the email he sent last week.  I explained that the flight attendant group is exhausted, frustrated, and feels disconnected and disregarded and that the email was another example to us that we are an afterthought.  Alan extended to all of us what I feel was a sincere apology for his admitted oversight.  He has committed to ensure our voices are heard and our issues addressed by the leadership team.  We will initially meet at the quarterly, March 8th, and then together with the FAEC we will develop a plan going forward to have more regular sessions where we can join forces and provide input and be heard.
I left the call feeling hopeful for a more collaborative process with our leadership team and look forward to a much more open exchange of information going forward.
As a reminder, the deadline is tomorrow, March 1st, for submitting your questions/concerns to the FAEC to address at the March 8th quarterly.  Please submit them to:
In Solidarity,
Darcey Kniseley, FAEC Co-Chair

Company Offers Five Additional Bases to New Hires on CC72/76 Schedule

Company Offers Five Additional Bases 
to New Hires on CC72/76 Schedules
 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Very recently the Company indicated they completed further analysis of the green list bases and proposed adding the following five bases to new hires awarded the CC72/76 schedule.
  • KEWR
  • KORD
  • KTPA
  • KHOU
  • KDFW
The Company would agree to this arrangement for the next four bid periods (June 2018, October 2018, February 2019, June 2019).  The Company would evaluate and communicate ahead of the October 2019 bid whether they would want to continue, modify,  or eliminate this arrangement (either side could eliminate).  The Company believes this is a positive for FAs restricted to new hire bases and hopefully would reduce the number of FAs junior assigned to the CC72/76 schedules.
If you have questions, please contact your FAEC.
