IAH Scheduling Committee Update – December 2022 

Subject to Change


The December schedule month is 30-days from 11/30-12/29.  One paid holiday, Christmas Day, December 25th.


The domestic line average range is 75:47- 76:13 hours across the FA01/FA02/FA03 crew complements. The line averages for international lines are: 85:52 hours for the FA05 lines and 80:23 for the 1-position lines. There was mixing required to meet the company quota, especially in the FA01 lines, due to a mid-month aircraft up gage from a 737 to 757 in both the BOG and UIO flights and from SYD beginning daily also mid-month. LQ line averages range from 82:22 to 90:09 hours, depending on the language. 


AUS has 15 FA03 lines at 86:31-hour average and 5 FA01 lines at 80:53-hour average for a total of 50 line-holders, one less FA line holder than in November.


December IAH primary line holder position counts and changes from November lines:

Domestic (non-LQ) 1325 +105

International (non-purser) 451–2

Purser (FSL international)80 –7

NLD LQ 11 +1

JPN LQ 18 –1

December is a 30-day month. The value of each reserve day is 4:20. All lines were built with 12 days off. All bases have at least 1 weekend off line with the exception of NLD. We tried to give as many lines Christmas Day off as possible. Don’t forget that the Christmas wish list runs for 3 days before and 2 days after Christmas Day. Information on the Christmas Wish List can be found in the Reserve Survival Guide and on Flying Together.


IAH REG - 50 lines

FSL - 6 lines

SPN - 10 lines

POR - 4 lines

GER - 2 lines

JPN - 2 lines

NLD - 1 line

AUS - 3 lines

Austin reserve lines have 1 line with weekends off. The other 2 lines have 1 weekend off each at the request of the base.


If you have any questions or suggestions about reserve lines, please email
