Dear Seattle Flight Attendants,
As of 3pm today Seattle Open Time has been up and working since 2:33 pm. At this point, several days remain open and active trading appears to be working well. However, the initial concern with the system failure is still my main focus.
I have discussed the failure with Director of Crew Scheduling, Kieran Whitney, who reports that a corporate system update around 2pm today may be the culprit. I am awaiting futher information and will prepare a detailed blast for you in the upcoming days.
In the meantime, I have registered my complaints with the company for failing to provide a system that allows Seattle Flight Attendants (and Flight Attendants system wide) their contractual right to trade trips. They are working on a solution for next month and will be sharing the information with you, as well.
Rest assured, I will continue to press the issue with the company to ensure that contractual Open Time procedures are afforded to all Flight Attendants every month.
