June is a 30-day month beginning on Wednesday, June 1st, and ending on Thursday, June 30th.  Non-paid holidays in May include Father’s Day on June 19th.          Line averages are lower than May.  In the domestic package most crew complements are around 75 hours and 78 hours in the international package. Line averages range from 78:07 in the International FA01 crew complement to 78:47 in the International FA05 crew complement.


International flying:  

Changes:   NRT—3X/week MO/TH/SA.  GIG-- 6x/week MO-SA/ daily beginning SU 27JUN.  UIO – Only one flight #1035 daily as a red-eye turn.


NRT— 3X/week MO/TH/SA.  LHR-- daily. AMS—daily.  FRA— daily.  MUC –daily.  LIM—daily.   GRU-- daily.  GIG—6X/week MO--SA.  SCL—daily.  EZE—daily.  

UIO—daily.  BOG—2 flights daily.


Flying in most International crew complements required substantial mixing of destinations due to the quotas (more FA’s) and subsequent lower line averages (78 hours) from May.


Domestic flying: Overall line average in domestic is approximately 75 hours.  Total one-day trip line holder positions represent 17% of domestic positions, about the same as May.  Including all night-turns., 22% this month vs 20% in May.  An increase in the percentage of all night/ red-eye lines/line holder positions this month, 25% of total domestic positions vs 21% in May.

IAH June Reserve Summary

June is a 30-day month. Each reserve day is worth 4:20. All lines are built with 12 days off. We used patterns as best as possible to provide lines with the same days 4 on 3 off. Also 6-day block patterns and patterns to allow for long stretches of days off for those who like to pick up on days off. The company once again changed the targets for June making is harder to provide pure line patterns.
