After more than 500 bid run solutions for the month of December, PBS Chairperson Anita Deen and Special Representative Marche’ Johnson-Cooper worked tirelessly with the Company to achieve a bid award without unstacking. This is a first for the month of December in several years. We wanted to share the results of the bid award with you and offer suggestions for bidding in the future.

ATL- once the bid award was complete; there is 2.84% of open time withheld. The min remained the same while max window was raised to 100, the TLV is 90 and there are 110 RSV’s.
Factors that affected setting changes in ATL are as follows:
* TOWOP – 47 were awarded for the month of Dec. in ATL.
* The window set didn’t meet operational needs based on number of Flight
Attendants and the number of hours that needed to be covered. Please
remember the MIN/MAX/TLV are subject to change.
DFW- once the bid run was complete, there is 4.29% open time withheld. The MIN/MAX/TLV window remained the same and there are 13 RSV’s.
DTW- once the award was complete we have 4.47% withheld. The MIN/MAX/TLV remained the same and there are 48 RSV’s.
*Make sure you have a default bid.
*Changes to the MIN/MAX/TLV windows may happen, have more than one bid
sheet adding pairings in the event the window changes.
*How our co-workers bid will affect your bid, keep this in mind when bidding.
*Please remember to protect yourself in your bid, select your Personal Credit
Threshold PCT (when selecting your PCT you will only be awarded between the
MIN and MAX settings during the bid run).
*Always include the days you want off when tagging trips.
*When bidding a single day off between trips (don’t forget to allow the single
days off preference).
*When selecting your days off preference, cascade them out from days you want
to the days you need.
