A message from your AFA Scheduling Committee
In preparation for Open Time this Saturday, some changes to Crew Access have been made to help minimize the spinning propeller issue that occurred last month.
If you should encounter the spinning propeller, Jeppesen suggests that you continue to submit any additional trades, even if the propeller is still there. They are working on a permanent fix for this issue but want you to maximize the opportunity to manage your schedules in the meantime.
- Check your Published Roster for the most accurate roster information. Hamburger Menu > Reports > Reports on Demand > Published Roster
- Print your pairing by clicking the blue pairing number in your Roster View
- Flight Loads are now available approximately 5 days before your trip. To view Flight Loads. FA Website > Schedule & Bidding > Flight Loads
- When picking up a SIP, verify your report time. Trips may show the report time as the same time as departure. You must report 1 hour before scheduled departure.
- When using the Filter “Show only premium pay trips” it will show all the trips that had premium pay associated with them. For example, a FA picks up a premium pay trip, then Advertises it for Grab. It will show in the filtered trips using this Filter, but premium pay will NOT follow the sequence. Section 9.E.3.
How to Split/SIP a trip
In the example below, the Flight Attendant would like to Advertise SEA-DFW, DFW-SEA as a SIP for Grab.
1. Add the trip to your Trade Cart
2. Select Split activity
3. Select the flight, in this case AS719 SLC-SEA, before the portion of the trip wanting to be sipped.
4. Select After (In this case the F/A wants to sip the portion of the trip after SLC-SEA.)
5. Select the trade option and complete the advertisement
You will see ½ of a green line next to your trip in your Roster View once your trip has been successfully advertised.
Please review the training video for additional information about Splitting a Trip. FA Website > Schedule & Bidding > Crew Access Help > Tutorial Videos & Guides
Recently, you may have seen the addition of FRS2 for recurrent training in Seattle. There is not a difference between FRS1 and FRS2. You may trade and pick up either one. So, if you are awarded a FRS1 and you want to trade into another date that has FRS2, your trade will be approved. You may also click on the grey triangle on the top right to see the list of flight attendants who will be attending that class.
Once dual recurrent trainings are offered in Seattle, FRS2 will be used to indicate an afternoon recurrent training.
If you have any questions, please contact your Local Scheduling Committee.
