Q: It is unclear as to pay increases for a current Lead for VX. Will Leads be paid as an A FA, and if so, how much of an increase in pay is to be expected?
A: Under the L-VX work rules, an “AS Lead” translates to a L-VX “Inflight Team Leader (ITL)”. ITL pay of a 15% override will be retroactive to 1.1.2018. If the TA is ratified, the current ITL pay will continue until the end of the second bid month after the Date of Ratification (DOR). Beginning with the third bid month after DOR, ITLs will no longer receive the ITL override, but will be paid the equivalent A pay in the JCBA. The block-hour equivalent of the $2/TFP that the L-AS Flight Attendants receive is $2.26/block hour (1.13 TFP/block-hour conversion) for a L-VX ITL.
