Q: When the TA is approved, will service and inflight labor (amount of work performed) be matched to that of AS? For example, LAX SFO is a full beverage service for the entire cabin, whereas AS, correct me if I’m wrong, has a reduced beverage service. Will the VX service be adjusted to match? Equal work for equal pay?
A: Not immediately. Flight Attendant service duties are determined at management’s discretion, so this is not a contractual issue. We know that management will align the product offerings and service flow, but it will not occur at date of ratification. Management has indicated to AFA that the bulk of service alignment is anticipated to occur this fall.
