Association of Flight Attendants-CWA
We’ve been communicating with the company about pay.  You will get critical and cancellation both.

Excerpt from email they sent AFA:

If they have cancellation credit on the dates that are critical, the cancellation credit will be given the 150% bump & will be found in the Hldy/CCP column

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!

Current Operations

Association of Flight Attendants-CWA
Yesterday was certainly a challenging experience, as will most likely be today and tomorrow.  With the cancellation of over 275 plus flights, the Company is doing everything it can to get the operations back up and running.  In an effort to help that process, they have deemed today and tomorrow (June 15th and 16th) as critical pay.
At this time, FLICA remains unreliable. Make sure that you are making positive contact with scheduling for up to date schedules.

The Company plans to have all operations up and fully running by 11:00 – 12:00. Management is reporting that the flight attendants are leaving the airport and going home. If you are scheduled to work today, they’ve asked that you please be patient until they’ve got schedules built. There will most likely be modifications from original schedules. This was an out of the ordinary situation, and they ask for your patience. Again, if you are scheduled to work today, please plan to do so.

There is several emails being sent by the company with up to date information, so make sure you are checking company email periodically for the latest up to date information during this time of irregular operations.
Lastly, we had no reports of a crew member not getting a hotel, which is great news.  If by chance you did not get a hotel, please let us know so we can look into it.
Thank you for everything you do and fly safe!
