Moving Expenses When Transitioning To SWA

There continues to be confusion and/or questions (and a few rumors) regarding moving expenses for AirTran Flight Attendants when transitioning to Southwest Airlines.  We hope this will help. Moving Expenses when transitioning to SWA: The Company will cover moving expenses per the TWU CBA.

September Leaves Of Absence

Just a reminder that a limited number of voluntary Leaves Of Absence are being offered for the September bid period.  However the deadline to bid for one is quickly approaching.  The parameters of the Leaves are as follows:   Leave period will run from September 4th - September 30th. Any carry-in trips from August will be required to fly to completion.

Upcoming Council Meetings

We will be holding our Council Meetings in both the ATL and MCO domiciles next month.  We will be focusing on the final months of the AirTran operation, the closing of the MCO domicile, continuing SMT transition, and what to expect for those transitioning in 2015.

Band Aids & Ear Plugs

Band Aids and earplugs are now available in the ATL inflight office. They can be found on the wall just past the glass door going into the office area. These items will be available anytime the office is open. The Band Aid container comes stocked with five bandages. Once depleted, simply stop by inflight to replenish your container.

The Passing of Milton Matthews

It is always difficult to report on the passing of work family member. Milton Matthews will be dearly missed by our AirTran and Southwest families. The words of sorrow you all -- his flying partners -- have expressed on social media is a testament to Milton's infectious energy, passion, and humor. Together, we will mourn his loss.
