Q: If we receive an acars, get contacted before landing or a supervisor meets our plane, can we be required to Pre-Board a different flight?
A: Pre-boarding under TA2 is the same application as current book, but will be a 15 minute debrief period rather than a 30 minute debrief period so only the time is changing. Under TA2, we are not required to stay past our debrief in order to pre-board a flight. Just like today, the company can ask if you will pre-board, but if it is outside your 15 minute debrief, you can decline.
Q: Is there a different application for JA?
A: If you receive an acars, get contacted before landing or if there is a supervisor in the jetway prior to the end of your debrief period, then you would be required to accept the JA assignment. However, if the last passenger has stepped off the plane and it is now 16 minutes, you are no longer on duty and can’t be JAd.
