Dear Flight Attendants,
Alaska Airlines Inflight management has now posted sample pairings for the new San Diego Flight Attendant domicile on First Class → World of Inflight → SAN Base Opening. Since management has not yet widely communicated about the the SAN Base Opening folder or the sample pairings, the Master Executive Council (MEC) will help get out the word. Management has indicated an intent to expand the San Base Opening folder to include information such as relocation benefits.
The sample pairings are from the October 2012 flight schedule, which is when management conducted a domicile study to decide whether to open a new domicile. While the sample pairings are not based on the current schedule, management indicated to AFA that the pairings should be fairly representative of what we will see out of SAN. Please keep in mind that actual pairings in the future may not be the same. While management built these pairings based on the October 2012 flight schedule, they did not apply all of the production processes like they would for an actual month for bidding and operations. That is, the sample SAN pairings solution is a very rough sketch of what actual pairings will look like.
Our thanks to management for making this information available to the Flight Attendants!
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Terry Taylor, Yvette Gesch, Melanie Buker, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn and Sandra Morrow
