Remember - Know What's In Your File!

For many years, we've encouraged all Flight Attendants to be aware of what's in their employment files.   As we enter the final stretch of the AirTran operation, it is more important now than ever.

January 2015 SMT Bidding

The January 2015 SMT class schedule remains the same: Class 1: January 5-16 Class 2: January 12-23 Class 3: January 19-30 For those of you transitioning to Southwest in those classes, we know you have questions about the bidding process.  The most common question has been if the SMT bid will be class specific.

Ebola - Extra Supplies

We have published a joint communication with the Company in the form of Must Read Memo #603 regarding extra items for Flight Attendants.  The same communication has been published as a Read Before Fly (RBF) on the Southwest side of the partition.

Ebola - Coordinating with SWA and TWU

In addition to working with AFA and other AFA carriers to recommend a national airline response to Ebola, we are working with Southwest Airlines and our colleagues with the Transport Workers Union Local 556 to ensure a consistent message to both AirTran and Southwest Flight Attendants.

Ebola - AFA Response

With so much coverage in the media about Ebola, many of us have a heightened sense of concern regarding the safety of ourselves, families, and friends as the virus has spread in a limited manner beyond the initial outbreak in West Africa.  Although no Flight Attendant has contracted Ebola since the outbreak began, as Flight Attendants, we are in a position of even higher awareness.

2015 Benefits

Now that there is a clearer picture of those Flight Attendants who will remain with AirTran Airways until the cessation of operations, many of you have questions about that "final transition".  There are many documents available for your review.  Our Seniority Integration and Transition Agreement from December, 2011 addresses most transition items.

ROR Lists Updated

Updated Right Of Return Lists for both the Atlanta (ATL) and Orlando (MCO) Southwest domiciles has been posted on our website,  It can be found under the "SWA Acquisition Info" drop down menu along the top.  NOTE:  These lists do not include AirTran Flight Attendants who have not yet been awarded or assigned SMT classes.

FINAL Council Meeting Scheduled

Per our Final Transition Initiative schedule, we have one last Council Meeting to complete prior to integration.  The final meeting for AFA Council 57 - AirTran Airways will be held at the IBEW Building in Atlanta on Friday, November 6 at 12:00p.  Typically the meeting lasts approximately two hours, and refreshments will be provided.
