This Morning’s update from the Company – June 19th

Association of Flight Attendants-CWA
This Mornings Update from the Company:

Last nights IT transfer went well. They cannot overload the system, therefore they will begin with about 25 percent operations for the day.

Inflight Supervisors and Chief Pilots will be contacting crews with their updated or modified schedules and PNRs for deadheads. Do not call scheduling as you will not get through. If you are with a full complement crew, your captain may notify the whole crew of your schedule.

IROPS Hotel Information

Association of Flight Attendants-CWA
As flights begin to cancel this evening, you most likely will not be able to get through to scheduling. If you need a hotel, please follow this protocol communicated to AFA from the company.

For hotels: Flight Attendants should call either the CLT office at (704) 359-3247 or the Duty Manager at (937)732-4102. They should keep calling until they get a person. Don’t leave messages as they may be overlooked. Supervisors will put the requests in for a hotel. Flight Attendants should call the hotel to confirm a reservation is booked before heading to hotel. Travelliance is backed up, so it may take 30 + minutes to confirm the reservation.

With AFA’s request, the Company has agreed to extend our bid period to allow everyone extended time to bid for July Schedules. They bid period will now close tomorrow, June 19th at 8 am.
If you are able to commute to CLT, the Company will be reimbursing for hotels. Retain your receipts and submit with a Business Expense report to your base coordinator or email to your supervisor.
Critical Coverage Pay has been extended through Wednesday, June 20th,applicable to all bases.
PHL and DCA are planned to run as normal.
Rumors were circulating that the June 20th pay would be effected. The Company confirmed pay will not be effected. Pay reports were pulled and sent to the SSO, who operates on a different system, prior to the IT failure. Crew pay will be working to get the pay summaries loaded as quickly as possible.
You have all displayed the utmost patience during this difficult period and we commend you for doing so.  This certainly hasn’t been an easy last few days. AFA is here to assist in any way that we can, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to your reps at any time.

Critical Coverage June 17th/June 18th

Association of Flight Attendants-CWA

With operations still irregular, the Company sent out an email stating today and tomorrow, June 17th & 18th, have been declared as critical. If you are interested in picking up flying, the Company asks to please email your request to PSA.schedulingsupv@psaairlines.com, rather than calling. They will monitor continuously to process requests.

We know the past few days have been extremely frustrating and we would like to thank you all for your patience.

If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your AFA union reps or your Company base supervisors.

The following is the latest Company information sent out today:

 

  • CLT Gate Management – Managing our traffic in and out of CLT will remain a priority today to ensure that gate conflicts do not create ripple effects throughout the system. Holds for outstation aircraft inbound to CLT will be imposed to meter the traffic. What this means for our crewmembers is that connection times will likely be short for our passengers and crewmembers.
  • DCA/PHL – Both DCA and PHL continue to run at a near normal pace and relatively smoothly.
  • ACARS – ACARS still remains intermittent. However, messages are being delivered to Dispatchers. Please continue to call OOOI times to the appropriate stations. This will help us cross check the data and maintain a better track of our aircraft.
  • Flight Plans – since this morning’s email to pilots the associated flight plans appear to be proliferating through to ATC. Contacting Clearance Delivery or Flight Service may not be necessary in all cases, but please retain this as a backup method.
  • Crew Scheduling – Crew Tracking software is operational although slowly. Our Schedulers continue to manage both immediate needs and strategic cancels to manage the operation. Phone volume continues to be high.
  • Critical Coverage – Critical Coverage is also declared for Monday, June 18.Again, this is for all bases and all seats, applicable to both Pilots and Flight Attendants. If you would like to pick up flying please email psa.schedulingsupv@psaairlines.com.
  • Inflight Supervisors and Chief Pilots – Please continue to use your Inflight Supervisors and Chief Pilots to aid in resolving schedule issues. We have dedicated resources in OCC that can assist without burdening Crew Schedulers.
  • DH PNR – As we stated yesterday, deadhead PNR’s continue to be problematic. If you are able please check in with the gate agents as soon as possible. If there are issues with your listing contact the Inflight Supervisors or Chief Pilots for resolution.

 

 

Thank you and fly safe!
