COUNCIL 42 AUGUST LINES OF FLYING SUMMARY
August is a 30-day month beginning on Friday, July 31st and ending on Saturday, August 29th.
For IAH the combined line average for all lines is in the 69-hour range. This average varies in the different crew complements based upon the pairing types (values) within each of these. These ranged from a 67:33-hour average in the International 05FA crew complement to a 74:48-hour average in the International 03FA crew complement.
International flying: GRU and UIO daily. LIM on MO/TH/SA’s.
Domestic flying: Approximately 43% of line holder positions are turns/one-day trips. Return of more all-night/red-eye flying at approximately 11% of flying. With the limited flight schedule we saw more daily pairings than what has been the norm.
******IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CHANGES TO BIDDING MATRICES AND PAIRING NUMBERS ******
Beginning with the July schedules there have been changes to the bidding matrices and pairing position numbers due to the company’s recently modified staffing guidelines. Both Domestic and International are affected.
For Domestic, there will no longer be 06 FA position base pairings. Wide-body and narrow-body flight segments will be blended into 03 FA base pairings. Base crew FA position 02 will now work GF on all aircraft (exception 737-700 and Airbus which are staffed with only 3 FAs). Domestic 3000 range pairings which were GF will now work economy position. Any aircraft staffed with more than 4 FA positions will be covered by 4000 range pairings. For International, as a result of recently announced staffing modifications, pairing numbers and bidding positions have also changed. Refer to the August bidding matrices in the cover letters for specific work positions. Always refer to the current month bid packet matrices before bidding, if bidding for specific positions.

RESERVE summary for IAH and AUS
IAH August Reserve Summary
August is a 30-day month with 4 full weekends and 1 half weekend. All reserve lines were built with 16 days off with restorable days. The days to be restored are indicated with a "+". The company targets were high on the weekends so it made pure patterns extremely difficult. All lines were built to meet company targets with the intention of having as many weekends off as possible. Most lines have 6 day on blocks and large blocks of days off. Where possible, we tried to keep the restorable days out of the set days or out of the longest block of days to allow for the ability to pick up during these stretches.
There are 15 purser reserve lines. All built with 16 days off with restorable days. The days to be restored are indicated with a "+". There is at least 1 line with all weekends off. All other lines were built to match company targets.
There are 10 Spanish reserve lines. All lines are built with 16 days off with restorable days. The days to be restored are indicated with a "+". There is at least 1 line with all weekends off. All other lines were built to meet company targets.
There are 3 Portuguese reserve lines. All lines were built with 16 days off with restorable days. The days to be restored are indicated with a "+". There is 1 line with weekends off and the other 2 lines were built to meet company targets.
