Dear Flight Attendants,
Bidding in Navtech’s PBS has re-opened and the bidding deadline extended to 12 noon PDT on April 10th.
This is from Inflight Bulletin 2014-0071 “May Bids Reopened – New Aircraft Codes Added”:
“Fleet planning has added new aircraft-type designator codes for aircraft that
have been through the fleet modification. These new aircraft types were not
added to PBS prior to bids opening at 9am on April 5th. Consequently bidding
was shut down at 1120am April 5th to add these new aircraft type codes.
Bidding reopened at 1:45pm PDT April 5th and will be extended until 12noon PDT
Here are the definitions of the new aircraft types:
8EX is the 73H (non-ETOPS 737-800) with 6 extra seats
9WX is the 737-900 with 9 extra seats w/winglets
9EX is the 737-900 with 9 extra seats
If you use Aircraft Type in your bid, check to make certain if these new
aircraft codes need to be added to your Award or Avoid statements.
Questions can be sent to PBS Q&A on FirstClass.”
There will be no further updates regarding this issue unless warranted.
