To avoid confusion, when discussing Vacation Bidding for 2022 there are three windows a Flight Attendant participates in:
The current window (Choose) began September 25, 2021 and will close at 0800 HDT on October 15, 2021. This is in keeping with our current Contract by providing for more than the full twenty (20) day period required during which time we may make elections to our 2022 vacation.
Once you know the number of days that you have accrued, you have the option to participate in the optional Vacation Election process. You may also choose not to make any selections in this Vacation Election process and skip this step.
For this first step, the vacation election options are:
- Buy Back Vacation Days. Partially accrued vacation days are not eligible.
- Defer vacation days to your 401(k) or UK Stakeholder Plan
- Take Flex Vacation Days (paid or unpaid)
