May is a 30-day month beginning on Sunday, May 2nd and ending on Monday, May 31st. Unpaid holidays include Mother’s Day on May 9th and Memorial Day on May 31st.Low averages for May. Most crew complements are 68-69 hours, ranging from 67:09 in the Domestic 02FA to 70:39 in the International 05FA crew complement. These low line averages required extensive mixing of destinations in the international flying package in order to meet the company’s line holder targets/quotas. With many lines constructed under 71 hours in order to meet the company’s quotas, the contractual 71-hour minimum will apply.

RESERVE summary for IAH and AUS
May Reserve Summary for IAH
May is a 30-day month. Each reserve day will be worth 4:20. For IAH, we have returned to 40 reserve lines. Each line was built with 16 days off with restorable days. The restorable days are indicated with a “+”. Reserves have a contractual right to restore any or all of the restorable days to increase the guarantee up to 78 hours. With the increase in reserve lines, this helps meet company targets while making it easier to have lines with pure patterns. The first 7 lines are built to have the same days on for reserve each week. The next 10 lines have a pattern of 5 on 5 off. The remaining lines were used to meet targets and provide long stretches of days off for those who like to pick up on days off. By using patterns, we can maximize the number of lines that offer weekends off. There are 3 lines with all weekends off, 1 line with 3 weekends off, 18 lines with 2 weekends off, and 14 lines with 1 weekend off. There is at least 1 line with every Friday, every Saturday, or every Sunday off.
FSL reserve has 4 lines. All built with 16 days off. 1 line has weekends off.
GER reserve has 2 lines. All built with 16 days off. Lines were built to offer the most coverage for the month. Each line has a weekend off.
POR reserve has 3 lines. All built with 16 days off, Lines were built to offer the most coverage for the month.
SPN reserve has 7 lines. All built with 16 days off. 1 line has weekends off.
May Reserve Summary for AUS
May is a 30-day month. Each reserve day will be worth 4:20. AUS has 6 reserve lines. All built with 16 days off with restorable days. The restorable days are indicated with a “+”. Reserves have a contractual right to restore any or all of the restorable days to increase the guarantee up to 78 hours. There is 1 line with weekends off. All other lines were built to meet company targets.
