AFA has been advised of a processing error involving the time that Transition Training bidding was closed within the bidding system. According to the Airbus Transition Training Letter of Agreement, bidding was supposed to close on Friday, May 4, 2018 at 5 PM Pacific time. In actuality, bidding closed at 9 AM Pacific time.
As a result of this error, Transition Training bidding has been reopened to allow additional time to enter and modify bids. Bidding will now close tomorrow, May 9, 2018, at 5 PM Pacific time. If you have already submitted a Transition Training bid, your original bid has been saved and will remain on file. If you submit a new bid at this point in time, any new bid will override your previously submitted bid.
As a reminder, it is important that you bid enough dates for Transition Training to ensure that you are awarded one of your preferred slots. If you do not bid or do not bid enough dates, you will be assigned a Transition Training date by Crew Planning.
