Q: Why can’t we fight for more Positive Space (PST) tickets? We use those more frequently and we don’t seem to be getting them as often. Can they be added to the contract?
A: Pass travel is a Company benefit and therefore management discretion. The only contractual language we have regarding discretionary (i.e. for pleasure) pass travel is that FAs receive the same pass privileges as other employees and that you may continue to have pass travel privileges under certain conditions while on leaves of absence. Management considers pass travel to be a management’s rights issue, so it is extremely unlikely that AFA will be able to negotiate PST tickets.
