concluded to enable the parties to complete the procedures set
forth in paragraph E.3.
c. The Company's pilots will perform all work for all Company
CPAs (including those Company CPAs added before the
complete operational merger), and no pilot of the other air
carrier will perform work in any Company operation unless
necessary to avoid the cancellation of a flight. After ratification,
the parties will meet and agree upon the terms as to how the
provisions "unless necessary to avoid the cancellation of a
flight will be applied. The pilots employed by the other carrier
involved in the merger transaction will, likewise, perform all
work under that carrier's CPAs (including those CPAs added
before the complete operational merger).

15. PHYSCAL EXAMNATONS

A. The physical standards required of a pilot will be those established by the
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), including its waiver policy, for the
pertinent class of medical certification. Pilots may select medical examiners
of their choice to meet FAA requirements and will notify the Company of any
examination results. The cost of such physical examinations will be paid by
the pilot.

B. Failure of Medical Examination

f a pilot fails an FAA medical exam, he must notify his domicile Chief Pilot
within 24 hours of the failure.

C. Determination of Medical Fitness

1. f the Company has reasonable cause to question whether a pilot
meets the required FAA medical standards, it may require a pilot to
submit to such medical examinations as are necessary to determine
whether the pilot meets the medical standards required by the FAA.

2. The examination will be by a Company designated medical examiner,
and the pilot will be furnished with a copy of the medical examiner's
written diagnosis or report. The cost of the Company-required
examination will be paid by the Company.

3. This pilot will be removed from flight status with pay until the date of
the examination scheduled by the Company. f the pilot is found to
meet the FAA required medical standards, the pilot will be returned to
service as soon as practical. That pilot will have no interruption in pay.
The pilot will receive all applicable pay and credits that he would have
received had he not been removed from flight status. However, a pilot
who fails to attend the scheduled examination will be removed from
pay status unless the Company has agreed in advance to a later date.

4. f the Company's medical examiner determines that the pilot is unable
to meet the FAA required medical standards, the pilot will thereafter
be entitled to use accrued sick leave. Such a pilot may dispute the
findings of the Company's medical examiner, as provided in
paragraph D., below.

D. A pilot who does not meet the FAA medical standards, or who disagrees with
the results of a Company required medical examination, may, at his option,
have a review of his case in the following manner:
Section 15 Physical Examinations
15-2

1. He may, within 7 days of receipt by him of the written diagnosis or
report, employ a disinterested qualified medical examiner of his own
choosing and at his own expense to conduct a medical examination
for the same purpose as the medical examination performed by the
Company designated medical examiner.

2. A copy of the findings of the pilot's medical examiner will be furnished
to the Company within 15 days of the receipt by the pilot of the written
diagnosis or report. n the event that the findings verify the findings of
the Company designated medical examiner, no further medical review
of the case will be afforded.

3. f the findings of the Company's medical examiner and the pilot's
medical examiner disagree on the pilot's qualification to exercise the
privileges of his Medical Certificate, the Company will, at the written
request of the pilot within 7 days of the furnishing of the written
diagnosis or report to the Company, ask that the two examiners agree
upon a third, qualified and independent medical examiner, preferably
a specialist, for the purpose of making further medical examination of
the pilot.

4. The independent medical examiner will, as soon as practicable, make
a further examination of the pilot in question and the case will be
settled on the basis of his findings. Copies of the medical examiner's
report will be furnished to the Company and to the pilot as soon as
practicable. The scheduling of an examination and the issuance of
written diagnosis or report will not be unreasonably delayed.

5. The expense of employing the independent medical examiner and
reasonable travel and lodging expenses directly related to the
examination will be borne one-half by the pilot and one-half by the
Company.

6. f it is determined by the independent medical examiner that the pilot
met the required medical standards, the pilot will be returned to
service as soon as practical and any sick leave credit used by the pilot
during the time the pilot was removed from flying will be re-credited to
the pilot's sick leave account. n addition, the pilot will be made whole
for all losses of pay and benefits incurred as a result of being removed
from flying until his return, and his record relating to the removal will
be expunged, as permitted by law.

7. Medical records and other information obtained as the result of a
Company-required medical examination or subsequent examinations
pursuant to paragraphs B. and C., above, will be subject to safeguards
Section 15 Physical Examinations
15-3
as to their confidentiality consistent with those required under the
Federal law. Such information will be available only to such
management, medical and clerical personnel as are responsible for
pilot medical qualification supervision and record keeping.

E. Drug and Alcohol Testing

1. Testing Occasions

a. Random Testing

(1) All pilots will be subject to random drug and/or alcohol
testing only to the extent required by applicable Federal
regulations, as they apply to commercial airline pilots
("Federal regulations).

(2) The Company may conduct random drug and/or alcohol
testing during any period in which a pilot is actually
performing, ready to perform or immediately available to
perform, a safety sensitive function. This includes all
times during which the pilot is on duty with the Company.

(3) A pilot will not be required to take tests on his days off,
to include vacation, sick leave, or any other leaves of
absence, or when otherwise not on duty except as
required by applicable Federal regulations.

(4) All random sampling transactions connected with the
taking of any body fluid samples will occur in a facility
that affords the pilot as much privacy as practicable.

(5) Following positive verification of identity using
photographic identification, a pilot selected for random
drug and/or alcohol testing will be given a written notice,
in duplicate, stating the location where the pilot is to
report for the collection process, and advising him that
refusal or failure to directly report and to provide the
required urine and/or breath specimen may result in
disciplinary action, up to and including termination of the
pilot's employment in accordance with Section 19 of this
Agreement.

required when an event has occurred which constitutes
Section 15 Physical Examinations
15-4
an aircraft "accident as defined in applicable Federal
regulations and the pilot's performance or involvement
contributed to the accident, and/or his performance or
involvement cannot be completely discounted as a
contributing factor to the accident.

(2) Pilots required to submit to post accident testing will do
so as soon as possible after the accident. f unusual
circumstances result in a delay of the testing, the pilot(s)
must remain available for alcohol testing for a period of
up to 8 hours following the accident. Drug testing may be
required up to 32 hours following the accident. Normally
both drug and alcohol test collection will be required, and
will be administered at the same time. The provisions of
this paragraph only apply to availability for drug and
alcohol testing.

(3) When a pilot is involved in a mishap resulting in physical
damage to persons, equipment or facilities, a
determination must be made whether reasonable cause
testing is required. Generally, testing will occur when the
pilot's actions are a significant contributing factor in the
mishap or damage, or cannot be reasonably eliminated
as a significant contributing factor.

(4) Medical treatment will take priority over drug and/or
alcohol testing. Drug and/or alcohol testing will be
accomplished as soon as possible after necessary
medical aid has been rendered.

c. Reasonable Cause Drug Testing

When reasonable cause exists, as defined in applicable
Federal regulations, to believe that a pilot is using drugs
prohibited by applicable Federal regulations, the pilot will be
required to submit to drug testing. The determination that
reasonable cause exists must be made by 2 management
officials, one of whom must be trained in detecting the
symptoms of possible drug use. The 2 officials must
substantiate and concur in the decision to recommend that the
pilot be tested. Once the determination is made, the testing will
be done promptly. Reports and observations must be
documented.

d. Reasonable Suspicion Alcohol Testing

Section 15 Physical Examinations
15-5
When reasonable suspicion exists, as defined in applicable
Federal regulations, to believe that a pilot is using alcohol in a
way which is prohibited by such regulations, the pilot will be
required to submit to alcohol testing. The determination that
reasonable suspicion exists must be made by a management
employee who is trained in detecting the symptoms of alcohol
misuse. Once the determination is made, the testing will be
done promptly. The reason for any delay over 2 hours will be
documented.

2. A pilot undergoing drug and/or alcohol testing will, for the purpose of
Federal regulations and/or this Agreement relating to duty time and
minimum rest, be deemed to be on duty, and receive pay and credit
as provided in this Agreement until the testing collection process is
completed.

3. f the Company has directed a "reasonable suspicion or "reasonable
cause test, the Association will be provided with a written statement
as to the basis for such test within 72 hours of the test.

4. A pilot will be entitled to Association representation during any
sampling taken in conjunction with a "reasonable suspicion or
"reasonable cause test provided that such representation does not
delay or interfere with the taking of the sample.

5. A pilot will not be required to be subject to drug or alcohol testing by
blood screening unless required by law or regulation.

6. Drug Testing Procedures

(1) A pilot who has been notified by the MRO that his test
resulted in a verified confirmed positive, adulterated, or
substituted result may request a test of the split portion
provided he does so within 72 hours following such
notification. The split test will be performed at a different
DHHS certified laboratory of the pilot's choosing. The
Company will payroll deduct from the pilot the cost of
testing the split specimen.

(2) f the test of the split portion of the specimen fails to
confirm the positive, adulterated, or substituted result,
then the entire test will be considered negative.

(3) f a second specimen, which must also be split, was
required at the time of the original collection, the pilot
may request that the second specimen also be tested at
the pilot's expense. f the test of the split specimen fails
to confirm a positive finding for drugs on the DOT list of
prohibited substances or their metabolites, the pilot will
be reimbursed for the cost of the split sample analysis.

e. Positive, Adulterated and Substituted Drug Tests

(1) After receiving a confirmed positive, adulterated, or
substituted test result, but before verifying that result, the
Section 15 Physical Examinations

Flight Operations.

7. Alcohol Testing

Alcohol testing will be conducted in accordance with applicable
Federal regulations. An Evidentiary Breath Test (EBT) alcohol test that
registers a confirmed positive result of below 0.02 will be considered a
negative test. An EBT alcohol test that registers a confirmed positive
result of 0.02 or higher will be subject to paragraph 9., below. A pilot
who has been informed that he has tested positive for alcohol at a
concentration of 0.02 or higher may request that a blood alcohol test
be administered. Such testing will be administered as soon after the
breath test as is reasonably possible.

8. Consequences of a Verified Confirmed Positive, Adulterated, or
Substituted Drug Test

a. nadvertent ngestion

(1) nadvertent and unknowing ingestion of any drug of
abuse or its metabolite will not be grounds for discipline.

locations, the parties will promptly meet and confer regarding appropriate
security measures to be taken in light of the risk reasonably expected to be
incurred. Any security measures reasonably required will be promptly
implemented.

B. Retention and Accrual of Benefits and Pay

1. A pilot, who while performing duties in the service of the Company,
who becomes missing, is interned or taken prisoner of war by a
foreign government, or who, through no illegal action of his own, is
unlawfully detained by a person or persons within or outside of the
boundaries of the United States, will accrue seniority and longevity
credit, and will be allowed the following benefits:

a. Flight pay at the rate the pilot was last paid to the maximum
number of hours credited to another pilot of similar seniority in
his position;

24. FLLNG OF VACANCES

A. Staffing and Vacancies

1. The Company will determine staffing requirements. n making its
determination, the Company will employ a sufficient number of pilots
in each position to cover known and expected flying, vacation, sick
leave, training, leaves of absence and to minimize disruption of
[blockholders'] schedules. The Company will maintain reserves in a
sufficient number to minimize Junior Manning and Extensions of pilots.

2. At the final award of lines, each position will be staffed with a reserve
complement of no less than 10% of the number of blockholders.

a. f the Company fails to provide the reserve coverage required
by paragraph A.2., above, pilots in that position will be paid
[junior manning rate] for any open time picked up. f a pilot is
junior assigned or extended during that bid period, he will be
paid [junior manning rate] for each trip that he is junior assigned
or extended and will receive an extra vacation day to be used
during the following year.

EXAMPLE: A pilot is scheduled to fly EWR-CAE-EWR,
arriving back at EWR at 1200 to finish his 4-day
trip. Upon blocking in at EWR at the completion of
his trip, he is reassigned to fly an additional round
trip, EWR-PVD-EWR. If the Company fails to
meet the reserve coverage required above, the
pilot will receive an extra vacation day to be used
in the following year in addition to [junior manning
rate] pay for the PVD round-trip.

EXAMPLE: A pilot is scheduled to fly ATL-CAE-ATL, arriving
back at ATL at 1200 to finish his 4-day trip.
However, during the course of his trip, he is
removed from the CAE round-trip and assigned a
replacement trip, ATL-CLT-ATL, instead. He
arrives back at ATL at 1215. If the Company fails
to meet the reserve coverage required above, the
pilot will not receive an extra vacation day to be
used in the following year but, in accordance with
Section 25 will receive [junior manning rate] for 15
minutes due to the fact that he arrives back at
Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-2
ATL 15 minutes past his originally scheduled
arrival time.

b. After the final award, if the reserve percentage in a position
drops below 10% as a result of medical, bereavement, or
military leave; training failures, or other uncontrollable leaves,
the provisions of paragraph A.2.a., above, will not apply.

c. The Company will inform the Scheduling Committee if the
provisions of A.2., above, have not been met in a bid period.

3. The Company and Association will hold meetings not less than
quarterly, or more frequently if requested by the Company, or the
MEC Chairman or his designee, to share information about current
and anticipated staffing requirements. The Company will share
relevant data and plans about marketing changes and the impact on
staffing, along with its analysis and calculation of staffing requirements
with Association representatives.

4. Vacancies will be permanent or temporary.

B. Permanent Positions

1. A permanent position vacancy will be filled when a position is
anticipated to exist for more than 3 months. A temporary position will
be converted to a permanent position if it has existed for more than 3
months.

2. A permanent position will be awarded or assigned to each pilot who is
not on furlough.

C. Temporary Positions

1. A temporary position is a position anticipated to exist for 1 month or
more, but not more than 3 months.

2. Temporary positions will be identified prior to the monthly bid package
and will be bid on and awarded on a month-by-month basis in order of
seniority among available currently qualified bidders. The temporary
position announcement will identify the positions from which bids will
be accepted. f there are insufficient available currently qualified
bidders, the temporary positions will be assigned to available currently
qualified pilots in inverse seniority order. Should a temporary position
become available after the bid package publication, but before the
final schedule, it will be filled by available currently qualified reserve
pilots in the domicile and, if there are no available currently qualified
Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-3
reserve pilots in the domicile, then by available currently qualified
reserve pilots from another domicile. A pilot is considered "available
for a temporary position if he is qualified to bid a line pursuant to
Section 25.

3. The Company will not award or assign a temporary position to a pilot
who has training or vacation scheduled that would conflict with the
performance of his duties in the temporary position. f there are
insufficient available currently qualified bidders, the temporary
positions will be assigned to pilots who do not have training or
vacation in inverse seniority order.

4. No pilot will be assigned to a temporary position for more than 3
consecutive months or more than 6 months in any 12 consecutive
months, unless the pilot waives this requirement.

5. A pilot holding a temporary position will bid a monthly schedule in his
temporary position in accordance with his seniority. A pilot assigned to
a temporary position after monthly bids have been awarded will be
assigned as a reserve pilot for the remainder of such bid period.

6. A pilot holding a temporary position at a domicile other than his
permanent domicile will be paid per diem in accordance with Section
[5.E.]

7. A pilot holding a temporary position at a domicile other than his
permanent domicile will be provided with lodging in accordance with

Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-4
b. nvoluntary Displacement bidsheet, and

within a position. This percentage will be applied at the time the
pilot's bidsheet is processed based on active pilots in the
position at the time of the Final Award.
b. f a pilot does not specify a percentage associated with a
position, the system will default to 100%.
6. A pilot's displacement bidsheet will have the same bid preferences as
his standard bidsheet unless he specifies otherwise.
7. A pilot will be able to change his standing vacancy bid at any time the
system is not closed for awarding.
8. Each time a standing vacancy bid is submitted:
a. The Standing Vacancy Bid page will reflect the new bid with a
date/time stamp.
b. The pilot will receive a Company email to reflect the submission
of a new standing vacancy bid.
9. The system will close for the processing of awards as specified in the
position notice. No further vacancy bids will be accepted until the
system opens with the publishing of the final award.
10. f a pilot does not have a standing vacancy bid on file or his standing
vacancy bid does not indicate sufficient choices, he will be considered
to be bidding for his current position. f his seniority no longer entitles
him to such position, the Company may assign such pilot to a position.
E. Position Notices
1. Position notices will be numbered consecutively using a numbering
system indicating the year and notice number, e.g., 12-01, 12-02, etc.
2. A position notice will be posted at least monthly, unless there are no
vacancies or reductions. A position notice may reference more than
one position for bid (e.g., 3 CR2 Captains ATL and 2 CR2 First
Officers ATL). All positions on a position notice need not have the
same effective date, but all vacancies or reductions within a position
Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-5
on a position notice will have the same effective date (e.g., 3 CR2
Captains ATL effective 2012 June 07 and 2 CR2 First Officers ATL
effective 2012 May 21).

3. A position notice will include the following:

a. Position notice number.

b. The number of vacancies and/or reductions by position.

c. The effective date of the award or assignment.

d. A deadline date for bid closing, which will be no earlier than 10
days from bid opening. The bid will close at 1700 Eastern Time
on such date.

e. Date final award is to be posted.

f. The projected minimum and maximum number of positions, on
the effective date, for which vacancies are posted. Such
projection is intended to be informative only to assist pilots in
the bidding process.

g. The number of positions shown on the most recent assignment
sheet for which vacancies are posted

4. A position notice may be cancelled at any time up to the date the final
award is posted. The Company may change the number of positions
in a position notice up to 25% or 5 positions, whichever is greater,
without cancelling the position notice. All pilots will be notified of any
changes made to the number of positions.

5. After a position notice is posted there will be no modification of the
effective date, except in accordance with paragraph J.9., below.

F. Awarding Positions

1. The awarding of positions will be determined as follows from the bid
sheets on file at the time of the closing so that when the process is
complete, all of the pilots will be in the most senior position that they
can hold consistent with the provisions of this section:

a. Vacancies (both posted and resultant) will be awarded in
seniority order using a pilot's Standard bidsheet.

Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-6
b. f any displacements are required, voluntary displacements will
be awarded in seniority order using a pilot's Voluntary
Displacement bidsheet.

c. Any remaining displacements will be awarded in seniority order
using a pilot's nvoluntary Displacement bidsheet.


2. Displacements

a. A pilot is displaced when he is unable to hold his current
position as a result of his seniority.

b. A pilot who is displaced will be awarded the first position that he
has listed on nvoluntary Displacement bidsheet that he is
entitled to according to his seniority. He may displace a junior
pilot in any position.

c. A displaced pilot who fails to bid a position or who bids
insufficient choices for positions will be assigned a position by
the Company.

d. A pilot who is displaced will receive the pay for his new position
beginning on the date he is advanced to the new position.

e. Voluntary Displacements

A pilot who is not subject to displacement will be awarded a
voluntary displacement if he has a position listed on his
Voluntary Displacement bidsheet which could be held by the
most senior remaining pilot in his current position subject to
displacement.

3. The Company may, at its discretion, assign a new hire pilot to his
initial category after all other pilots have bid on position notices. After
such assignment, a new hire pilot may bid for his domicile in seniority
order, and if he fails to submit an appropriate bid the Company will
assign his domicile. After a new hire pilot receives his initial position,
he is subject to the category freeze set forth in paragraph F.4., below.
n no case will a new hire pilot be awarded a domicile that a more
senior pilot has listed on their standing vacancy bid ahead of their
current domicile.

4. Category Freeze

Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-7
a. A pilot who is awarded a new position will incur a category
freeze of 18 months from the date of such final award;
however, such pilot will:

(1) Not be frozen when the permanent position requires
requalification training of less than 5 days;

(2) Be released from a category freeze for upgrade or for
transition to a new aircraft type with a higher hourly rate
of pay. For purposes of this paragraph, the term "new
aircraft type will include all aircraft types that have been
in operation by the Company for fewer than 6 months;

(3) Not be subject to a category freeze in the new position to
which he has been displaced if it has a lower hourly rate
of pay;

(4) Not be frozen in a position to which he has been
displaced if it has the same hourly rate of pay, except
that he will be subject to any period of time remaining on
a preexisting freeze; and

(5) Be released from a category freeze in the event he is
awarded a permanent vacancy in a new domicile as
defined in Section 6.A.2.

b. A displacement breaks a category freeze, i.e., a category
freeze does not prevent a pilot from being displaced.

c. f the Company waives a category freeze for one pilot bidding
on a position notice, it will also do so for all other pilots senior to
that pilot bidding on that position notice who have sufficient
seniority to hold the position(s).

d. The Company will post a "freeze list by the first of each month,
which will include a list of all pilots who are in a category freeze
and the dates of their release from such freezes.

e. Notwithstanding paragraph F.4.a., above, a pilot who bids for
and is awarded a position with a lower hourly rate of pay will
incur a 24 month category freeze.

5. Seniority notwithstanding, the Company may bypass a pilot on leave
of absence unless such pilot provides a written statement to the
Company at least 5 days before such position is awarded that he will
return from the leave of absence on the date when any required
Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-8
training commences for such position, or, if no training is required, on
the position's effective date.

6. The requirements for a pilot to be awarded any position will not be
greater than Federal Aviation Regulation minimums.

7. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph F.1., above, on any final
award, the Company will not be required to award positions in a
different category to more than 10 percent of the pilots in a position in
a small fleet. A small fleet is any aircraft type being reduced that
consists of the lesser of 15 percent of the entire fleet or 20 aircraft. A
pilot not awarded a position in accordance with this paragraph is
considered bypassed and is entitled to bypass pay on a one-for-one
basis for the position he would have been awarded. Such pilot's
bypass pay will commence on the earlier of the date a junior pilot on
the same award commences pay or the effective date for the
bypassed position, and will continue until he commences pay in a new
position or no longer expresses a preference for the bypassed
position. Should the Company acquire a new small fleet, it will meet
with the MEC Chairman, or his designee, to discuss potential training
issues that occur as a result of the language in this paragraph. For the
purpose of this paragraph, common aircraft types, e.g., EMB-135 and
EMB-145, are considered the same fleet.

8. A pilot awarded a different domicile within his category is not entitled
to the benefits of Sections 5.E.3. more than once, unless it is a newly
opened domicile as defined in Section 6.A.2. This paragraph does not
apply to a displaced pilot.

G. Final Awards

1. The final award will be posted no later than 10 days after the bid
closing date.

2. The final award will include the following:

(2) System Seniority
Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-9
(3) Current Position
(4) Future Position

3. When the need to fill or reduce a position is due to emergency, strikes,
acts of God or other causes beyond the control of the Company, the
time limits set forth in paragraphs E.3.d. and G.1., above, may be
altered as necessary by the Company after conferring with the MEC
Chairman.

4. Class Dates

a. Within 14 days after posting of the final award, the Company
will post for bid the available advancement and training dates.
Pilots awarded those vacancies are eligible to bid on the dates.
Bids will close 7 days after posting and be awarded in
accordance with seniority. f a pilot fails to bid or bids an
insufficient number of choices, he will be assigned the earliest
date to which his seniority entitles him. Awards will be posted 7
days after bid closing.

b. After training dates are awarded they cannot be moved more
the +/- 45 days, unless the affected pilot(s) is afforded an
opportunity to withdraw from the affected class and return to his
previous position without an associated freeze

H. Modification of Final Award

1. A final award may be cancelled by position at any time up to the
earliest effective date for that position.

2. f there have been subsequent final awards for the affected position at
the time a final award is cancelled, the pilot(s) will have the following
options:

a. Return to his previous position without an associated freeze, or

b. Seniority permitting, displace a pilot in the first subsequent final
award that contains the same position that he can hold by
virtue of his seniority.

3. f the training for such subsequent position in paragraph H.2.b., above,
has already commenced, the pilot(s) from the cancelled final award
will enter training in a subsequent class; however, he will retain the
effective date of the position notice that he displaced into.

Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-10
4. f a pilot(s) on a cancelled final award chooses paragraph H.2.b.,
above, the junior affected pilot(s) on the subsequent final award will
have the options in paragraphs H.2.a & b., above, and for each junior
affected pilot(s) thereafter.

. Assignment Sheet

The Company will post a monthly assignment sheet containing the name of
each pilot on the seniority list in seniority order within position. Such sheet

beyond the 60th day for the reasons set forth in paragraphs J.4. or 5.,
below. A pilot will have successfully completed training when all
required elements of the training program, including a PC, line check,
or OE, are completed.

4. A pilot who requires training will not be entitled to the pay for his new
position 60 days after the pilot's awarded training date if his successful
completion of training is delayed beyond the 60th day because of
delays attributable to the pilot, (e.g., a recommendation for additional
Section 24 Filling of Vacancies
24-11
training, failure during training, or the granting of a pilot's request to
delay training). Delays attributable to the Company will not extend the
date on which a pilot is entitled to his new pay.

5. f the Company cannot release a pilot from his current position to
attend training or advance the pilot to his new position because there
are an insufficient number of pilots in his status and domicile, the
Company may delay training for up to 60 days or advancement for up
to two bid periods. The determination that there are insufficient pilots
will be made on an individual basis in accordance with seniority and
discussed with the Association. n this case, a pilot will receive pay for
his new position when the training is complete and the pilot is
advanced or 60 days after the revised training date, whichever is
earlier, except as provided in paragraph 4., above.

c. per diem while on duty.

7. An effective date will not be more than 210 days from the date of the
posting of the final award.

8. An effective date on a subsequent position notice, for the same
position, will not precede the effective date of an earlier position
notice.

9. The effective date may be delayed only once for up to 30 days from
the date posted on the final award only under the following

frame less than required to train a pilot to fill a vacancy and that
cannot be staffed through a temporary position.

e. Greater than projected leaves of absence Leaves of absence
greater than projected at the monthly scheduling meeting
based on anticipated medical, military, Association, jury duty, or
family medical leaves that occur in a time frame less than
required to train a pilot to fill a vacancy and that cannot be
staffed through a temporary position.

f. Unanticipated aircraft maintenance and FAA mandates
Unscheduled aircraft maintenance that require the removal of
one or more aircraft from revenue service and that causes
additional flying in the pilot's previous category and that cannot
be staffed through the use of a temporary position.

g. Unanticipated delay in training Unusual and substantial delay
in training caused by the unanticipated unavailability of a
simulator, FAA examiner, a training facility, or unusual and
substantial increases in the student failure rate.

10. f more than one pilot is awarded the same category on the same final
award, and due to the Company's delay, a junior pilot completes his
proficiency check before a senior pilot, and both pilots subsequently
complete OE, and the junior pilot begins performing duties in the
position with the higher rate of pay, the senior pilot will receive the
higher rate retroactive to the junior pilot's proficiency check date.

11. The requirements of this paragraph J. do not apply to new hires.

K. Effect of Subsequent Vacancy Awards

1. f a pilot is awarded a vacancy subsequent to an award that does not

definitions will apply to this paragraph [D.2.]

Administrative paneI or AirIine buiId option The control
panel associated with PBS from which a setting(s) can be
made to dictate the outcome of a bid run solution.

AirIine BuiId ThreshoId or ThreshoId Line vaIue (TLV)
The credit hour value set in the administrative panel of the PBS
for conducting bid runs in a position. The threshold is the point
where pairings will not be added if the current schedule is
complete so long as the value for a schedule is equal to or
greater than the min credit value spanning to or equal to the
max credit window value.

Audit TraiI - An individual reasons report generated by the
PBS for a pilot(s), specifying why each trip was awarded or not
awarded to such pilot(s).

ActuaI Average Line VaIue (AALV) or Average ScheduIe
The average line value of the actual lineholders as reported in
the Management Summary after a bid run.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-4
Bid Run SoIution or Bid Run Entering or adjusting settings
on the administrative panel on the Preferential Bidding System
to produce a possible schedule or final award.

CaIcuIated Average Line VaIue (CALV) The result of adding
the total known credit hours and the total of all pre-assigned
hours, then dividing the sum by the estimated number of
lineholders in that position to arrive at the average line value for
that position. This assumes all pairings are awarded.
nstructors assigned quarterly line flying will not be included in
this calculation.

Correct Iine The regular or reserve line the pilot should have
been awarded had a PBS bid award error not occurred

Credit Window The airline build min-max, threshold and
partial value(s) set on the administrative panel. The credit
window is defined by the min and max credit values a schedule
needs to be considered complete. The partial schedule allows
the airline to award schedules to pilots who cannot be awarded
a schedule that meets the credit window (e.g., due to pre-
assigned activities, a lack of pairings, etc.), but meets the
partial schedule requirements.

Crewmember BuiId Options A function that allows the
system to limit the number of pilots (in inverse seniority order)
that are eligible to use certain option(s). The functions includes:
above airline threshold, below airline threshold, maximum days
On, minimum days Off, reserve option, and assign reserve; all
after "X pilots.

Forced Reserve When more Reserve Lines are needed than
can be produced during the award process, the "Assign
Reserve after # Crewmembers value prevents crewmembers
from being awarded a line despite open time remaining.

Instructor PiIot Bidding (IPB) A virtual credit value for an P
to obtain a trip(s) consistent with his line fly week(s).

PartiaI Line A line awarded using the Partial value in the
Administrative Panel.

PreferentiaI Bidding System, PreferentiaI Bidding Software,
or Pref Bid (PBS) The system which creates a pilot's
monthly schedule using the pilot's seniority and preferences,
Section 25 Scheduling
25-5
system awarding logic, and complies with the provisions in this
Agreement.

PBS Bid Award error An occurrence in which a pilot properly
submitted a valid bid and was not awarded a trip or line
consistent with his bid preferences, his seniority, known
absences, programmed award logic, FAR's, Company policy
and the Agreement.

PersonaI Credit ThreshoId A credit value that a pilot selects
between 60-120 credit hours from the schedule options on the
Prefbid sheet.

Primary Unstacking An administrative panel function used
to (manage primary stack) assign an excessive amount of open
time during a specific date range remaining after a bid run
solution.

Preassigned Activity Any prescheduled activity or known
absence placed on a pilot's schedule before the bid opening.

Secondary Unstacking An administrative panel function
used to (manage secondary stack) assign an excessive amount
of open time on a specific day(s), remaining after a bid run
solution.

Sorting An administration panel function used during bid run
solution to order pairings within a preference to generate better
open time coverage results while continuing to honor seniority
and the pilots' preferences.

Sorting Bias An administrative panel function used during
bid run solution to allow for each pairing value to be altered by
a sort bias percentage. ncreasing the sort bias reduces the
number of trips remaining on a specific day. Decreasing the
sort bias to increase the number of trips remaining on a specific
day.

Stack Excessive open time grouped together on a date(s)
after a bid run solution.

Unstack A tool in PBS that assigns trips to pilots in such a
way as to minimize excess open time grouped together on a
date(s) after a bid run solution.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-7
(2) The virtual credit for CQE will be equal to the average
daily credit for the month, by position.

c. Minimum Monthly Guarantee (MMG)

(1) f because of the threshold line value or the credit
window min, the PBS awards or assigns a pilot a final
award that is less than MMG, then a pilot will still be paid
MMG in accordance with Section 4. f a pilot selected a
PCT below MMG his MMG will be reduced to his line
value.

(2) Except as provided by paragraph c.(3), below, a pilot
awarded from a bid sheet using Vacation Low will have a
65 hour MMG.

(3) f the normal Credit Window is set below 75 hours, the
percentage of line holders awarded below 75 hours will
be determined and such percentage will then be applied
to Vacation Low pilots, who, in seniority order, will have
their 65 hour Vacation MMG increased by the amount
the bottom of the normal window is reduced below 75
hours.

EXAMPLE: The bottom of the normal window is 73
hours, and 10% of non-Vacation Low line
holders are awarded lines below 75 hours,
the 10% most senior Vacation Low pilots will
have a MMG of 67 hours.

d. Leaves of Absence

(1) A pilot will notify the Company of known preplanned
activity as soon as reasonably practicable, but no later
than the deadline published in the bid packet:

(2) f approved, the Company will place such pre-assigned
activity on his schedule for bidding purposes, the earlier
of the bid opening if notified, or no later than 12 hours
after such notification. Such pre-assigned activity will be
credited with the virtual credit as provided by paragraph
[2.b.], above.

e. Regular Lines

A regular line will contain:
Section 25 Scheduling
25-8

days off in the schedule build option;

(5) Days off as provided by Section 12.

(6) Known absences (pre-assigned activity):

(a) The Company will place known absences on a
pilot(s) line prior to the bidding process.

(b) The virtual credit values in paragraph [2.b.],
above, for known absences will be applied to
each day of the absences.

(c) The total value of the virtual credits will be applied
to the pilot(s) total credit for bidding purposes.

(7) The PBS will provide a pilot the ability to sort for trips to
include but not limited to:

(a) Average Daily Credit
(b) Carryover Pairings

a specific captain(s). A list will be generated by PBS that
contains the names of the Crewmembers. The list will be
named the "No Fly List," The MEC Chairman or his
designee will be provided a copy of the No Fly List. The
list of pilots who have been named by other
crewmembers as "No Fly" will not be used as a primary
means for disciplinary purposes.

f. CDO Bidding

(1) CDO pairings will be sorted separately (within a bid
preference) from all other pairings and awarded as
"pure" CDO lines.

(2) A pilot will be able to bid regular trips, then CDO trips
together, or change back to regular trips, and a reserve
line(s) listing his preferences on the same bid sheet.
Award logic will be dictated by the chronological order in
which the pilot submitted the preferences.

(3) Each Preference will be evaluated to determine if a
schedule can be awarded.

(4) All Preferences for regular pairings will be looked at
together even if there are intervening preferences for a
CDO line or reserve line.

(5) All Preferences for a CDO will be reviewed at together
even if there are intervening preferences for a regular
pairing(s) or reserve line(s).

(6) A pilot can waive the requirement to have 2 days off
following a CDO pairing.

(7) Awarding CDOs

(a) The system will not award more than 4 CDOs in a

CDO.

(b) For the purpose of this paragraph, 4 CDOs in a
row are 4 contiguous nights (e.g., CDOs that duty
in on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and
Thursday) (MATCH 100313)

(8) Administrative Panel Options for CDOs

(a) The "Min Credit" and "Add Credit" toggle option
and numerical entry box labeled "Adjust CDO" on
the PrefBid Award Engine Admin Panel may be
used for bid run solutions with mutual agreement
between the Company and the Association.

(b) f using the "Adjust CDO" functions restrict a pilot
from obtaining a higher schedule credit value than
he would otherwise been able to hold without the
added credit, the credit window max will be raised
and additional bid run(s) will be conducted to
accommodate the pilot obtaining the schedule he
would have otherwise been able to hold.

(c) f credit is added to CDOs, a pilot awarded a CDO
line will not receive pay and credit less than MMG
except as provided by Section 4.

g. Reserve Lines

(1) The Company will estimate a sufficient number of
reserve lines in each position for each pilot who may be
awarded or assigned a reserve line.

(2) The on-call period will be depicted on each reserve line.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-11

(3) The Company may determine the on-call period(s) for
bidding purposes.

(4) A short-call reserve line holder will be assigned the
same on-call period for the entire month.

(5) Of the reserve lines awarded or assigned, at least 20%
of the reserve lines will be long-call reserve(s), using
conventional rounding, and will be awarded in seniority
order. The Company may award more long-call reserve
lines than is required by this paragraph. The remaining
number of reserve lines will be assigned short-call
reserve lines.

h. Reserve Line Bidding

(1) A pilot will be awarded or assigned at least 2 contiguous
days off, unless waived by the pilot.

(2) A pilot will have his days off awarded in seniority order
by the PBS, based on his preferences for days off.

(3) The first, largest set of days off, on the reserve pilot's
line will be designated as immoveable unless the pilot
notifies Crew Scheduling otherwise by 2359 ET on the
first day of the bid period. f there are no groups of 3
days or more, a pilot may select two groups of days.

i. Eligibility to Bid

(1) A pilot may participate in the PBS bid if he is projected to
be "currently qualified" and available to fly for at least 7
days in the month for which he is bidding, except for a
new hire pilot who has not completed OE.

(2) f a pilot is unavailable for any portion of the month and
is eligible to bid, the Company will only place a daily
virtual credit value as defined in paragraph [2.b.], above,
on the pilots Pre-assigned activity list on the days of
projected unavailability.

(3) A pilot scheduled for ETB days who subsequently
becomes available will coordinate his schedule as
provided by paragraph [i.(7)], below. Such a pilot will
only be liable for assignment on remaining ETB days.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-12

(4) A pilot who has vacation for more than 50% of a month
will not be disqualified from bidding a line solely because
he has vacation.

(5) A pilot who is not eligible to bid pursuant to paragraph
[i.(1)], above, will, as soon as possible after becoming
available, coordinate his return to duty with Crew
Scheduling by jointly constructing a regular or reserve
line with Crew Scheduling. A pilot completing initial,
transition, upgrade, differences, or requalification training
will be "available" for the purposes of this paragraph
when he is released by the Training Department, and he
will receive a copy of the written verification of his
release.

(a) A pilot who fails to coordinate his return to duty
with Crew Scheduling in accordance with this
paragraph within 24 hours after becoming
available may be assigned a regular or reserve
line with prorated days off. A pilot will jointly
construct a regular line from open time with
prorated days off in accordance with the chart in
Section 12.

(i) Such pilot's preference for days off will be
taken into consideration in making such an
assignment.

(ii) f there are insufficient pairings in open
time and pilot postings, or the pilot and the
Company cannot mutually agree on a
schedule the pilot may choose one of the
options in paragraph [(6)(b)], below.

(b) f a pilot is unable to mutually construct a
schedule in accordance with paragraph [(a)(ii)]
above, a pilot will have the following options for
constructing a schedule:

(i) A pilot may opt to receive a blank line with
no pay, credit, or MMG; the pilot may then
pick up pairings and will be paid for
actually flying those pairings. The
Company may decline to award a pilot a
blank line if staffing does not permit then;
Section 25 Scheduling
25-13

(ii) f a pilot is denied a blank line, then he can
determine the placement of one-half of his
prorated days off as provided in Section
12. by comparing his seniority within his
new/current position to the 4 people ahead
of him and the 3 people below him based
on the final award for that month.

(iii) A pilot may opt to be placed on reserve. He
then can determine the placement of one-
half of their prorated days off as provided
in Section 12. and his on-call (long call or
short call) period by comparing his
seniority within his new/current position to
the 4 people ahead of him and the 3
people below him based on the final award
for that month. f the pilot is awarded a
short call reserve line the on-call period
can be determined by the Company if the
pilot and Company cannot mutually agree
on the period.

(iv) f the majority of the aforementioned pilots
hold a line in the respective bid month, he
will be placed on long-call reserve. f the
majority of the aforementioned pilots hold a
reserve line in the respective bid month, he
will be placed on short-call reserve with his
choice of on-call period taken into
consideration.

(v) f a pilot is placed on long-call reserve and
it is necessary to convert him to short-call
reserve, the pilot will not be converted to
short-call reserve for more than 33% of the
days he is assigned reserve.

j. Bid Package nformation

(1) The bid package will contain all the pairings for the
month grouped by position and the number of reserves
needed by position. The package will also include the

the calculation of the 4% of block hours of known flying
withheld or open time unassigned. The Company will
provide the Association a list of the actual trips withheld
or open time unassigned.

l. System Requirements and Changes

(1) The pilots will use the Flightline PrefBid system for the
bidding of monthly schedules. The use of Flightline
PrefBid for the bidding of monthly schedules will not be
changed without written mutual agreement between the
Company and the Association.

(2) Any Changes to the Flightline PrefBid system will only
be made with written mutual agreement between the
Company and the Association.

(3) Any no-cost enhancements to the system by Flightline
will be made available to the pilots.

(4) Before any significant changes are made to PrefBid, a
Detailed Requirement Document (DRD) or "Prefbid
Scope Document" that is mutually acceptable among the
Company, Association and Flightline will be created so
to define the capabilities, award logic, and functionality,
that is consistent with the terms and conditions set forth
in this Agreement as it pertains to the PrefBid module for
the Company.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-16
(a) With any agreed upon changes the Association
will have the ability to test the functions with
Flightline PrefBid as produced by the vendor or
Company and after completed testing, if accepted
by the Association, the system will be used for
bidding of monthly pilot schedules.

Prefbid system for live bidding, after the
change(s), the changes will not be used until the
system conforms to the agreed upon changes.

(5) The terminology and definitions used in this agreement
and use of the system, and the DRD or "Prefbid Scope
Document" will be consistent with this agreement and
any eventual LOAs or MOUs, and the DRD and will
reflect the true intent and understanding of the parties.
The parties agree not to develop or utilize new
terminology, system functions, administrative panel
functions, award logic, terms or conditions other than
required in this agreement unless mutually agreed to
between the Company and Association in writing.

m. CQE

(1) Training events may be included in regular and reserve
lines.

(2) CQE Training Slot Bids

(a) The Company will provide a schedule of available
CQE training slots for the following month. A pilot
will bid for available CQE slots beginning at 1200
ET on the 1st of each month, with the bid closing
on the 4th of the month at 1700 ET. The bid
results will be published in the bid package.

(b) The Company will provide sufficient classes each
month to allow for some pilots in their due month
and all of the pilots in their grace month to be
awarded a class.

(c) The Company will establish the number of class
slots in a month for each pilot.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-17
(i) The CQE slots will be awarded in seniority
order first to the pool of pilots who bid,
then;

(ii) Assign to all non-bidding pilots in seniority
order; starting with pilots in their grace
month first, then;

(iii) Assign to all other non-bidding pilots in
seniority order. A pilot who fails to submit a

o. Vacation Month Bidding

(1) A pilot may use Vacation Low in a month with a full week
or partial week of vacation. However, if a pilot has a full
week or partial week that spans two months, he may
only use Vacation Low in one of the two months.

EXAMPLE: A pilot accrues 2 weeks and 3 days of
vacation. He will be allowed to use vacation
low three times in the following year.

EXAMPLE: A pilot has two weeks of vacation in
February and a week of vacation that spans
July and August. He will be allowed to use
vacation low in February and July or August.

EXAMPLE: A pilot has one week of vacation in
February, one week of vacation in April, and
Section 25 Scheduling
25-19
a week of vacation that spans July and
August. He will only be allowed to use
vacation low in February, April, and July or
August.

EXAMPLE: A pilot has a full week of vacation in March
and a week of vacation that spans March
and April. He will be allowed to use vacation
low in both March and April.

(2) A pilot with a vacation week that spans two bid periods
will be eligible to use Vacation Low during the first bid
period. The Company will provide an electronic process
that will allow a pilot to defer his eligibility for Vacation
Low to the subsequent month. Such deferral must be
done no later than 1700 domicile local time on the 5th of
the bidding month (e.g. March 5th to defer Vacation Low
for an April/May vacation week to May).

(3) A pilot may not use Vacation Low in connection with
Day-at-a-Time ("DAT), unless he has other vacation
days in the month.

(4) A pilot who is eligible for vacation low, at his discretion,
will have the option to use either 3.75 virtual credit hours
or 4.0 virtual credit hours for each day of his vacation
applied toward his schedule.

(5) Vacation days during a month when a pilot is not eligible
for vacation low will be credited 3.75 hours per day.

(6) A pilot will have the option to select his personal credit
threshold (PCT) and the vacation low option for each bid
sheet. The Vacation Low PCT will be effective in a range
from 65 hours to 95 hours.

(7) f a pilot selects the vacation low option, such pilots'
threshold will be:either 75 hours or his PCT, if he set a
PCT.

(8) When performing Bid Run solutions, the Company's
selection and use of the PBS administrative panel
options will not override a pilot's selection of the options
provided above.

p. Bid Sequence and Timing
Section 25 Scheduling
25-20

(1) The Company and the Association will mutually agree on
a bidding schedule 6 months in advance.

(2) The bidding schedule will include the following items:

(a) Bid Package publishing deadline

(b) Known preplanned activity deadline

(c) Bidding window closing

(d) Final Schedule for Lineholders NLT the 20
th
, or
the next business day if the 20
th
falls on a
weekend or Holiday.

(e) Final Schedule for Reserves

(3) Nothing will preclude the Company from posting
information prior to a deadline

(4) Final Schedule

The final award for each pilot will include the following
details:

(a) For each regular line:

(i) Scheduled credit time;
(ii) Scheduled block hours;
(iii) Scheduled time away from base;
(iv) Scheduled number of days off;
(v) Trip number(s) and dates.

(b) For each reserve line:

(i) Days off
(ii) On-call period for the month

(5) f a pilot's schedule for the current month conflicts with
his schedule for the ensuing month, the trip, or
conflicting portions of the trip, will be dropped from his
line into open time. When resolving such conflicts, the
Company will drop portions of the conflicting trip working
backward from the end of the trip originating in the
Section 25 Scheduling
25-21
current month. The Company will drop the least amount
of time practicable while minimizing deadheads.

q. FlightLine Bid Run Solutions

Bid runs will be conducted with the following conditions:

(1) A "No bid" run will be done prior to the opening of the bid
window to establish a guideline for the threshold line
value (TLV) and number of regular and reserve lines;

(2) The Company will meet and confer with the PWG
before setting the TLV.

(3) The TLV will be between 75 and 105 hours.

(4) Credit Window settings:

(a) The credit window in a Position will initially be
determined by the process of determining a
Calculated ALV ("CALV).

(b) f the CALV is less than 83 hours, the initial credit
window will be a minimum of 15 hours.

(c) f the CALV is 83 hours or greater, the initial credit
window will be a minimum of 20 hours.

(d) The Credit Window will be distributed evenly
around the TLV. Credit Window expansions may
be on either side of the TLV.

EXAMPLE: A position has a credit window of 15
hours and a TLV of 77 hours. The
credit window will be from 69:30 to
84:30.

(e) The vacation low credit window will be a fixed
range from 65 hours to 95 hours.

(f) The administrative panel setting for the credit
window minimum will be no less than 60 credit
hours and the credit window maximum will not
exceed 120 credit hours. A pilot will have the
ability to set his personal credit threshold between
60 and 120 credit hours.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-22

(g) f a pilot's personal credit threshold value is set
below the credit window min it will be adjusted to
the Company min credit window setting value.

(h) f the pilot's personal credit threshold value is set
above the max credit window it will be adjusted to
the Company max credit window setting value.

(5) A pilot is considered to have a complete line as soon as:

(a) The total value of assignments is within the credit
window; and

(b) The pilot's PCT has been met, or in the absence
of a PCT, the TLV has been met

(6) f the system is unable to meet the PCT or TLV, a pilot
will still have a complete line if the total value of
assignments is within the credit window.

(7) Bid runs will first be run using major and minor sorting,
sort bias, and the initial credit window settings.

(8) f, following the bid runs pursuant to paragraph (7),
above, the AALV varies 3 hours or greater from the
CALV or 100% distribution of all pairings as reported in
the bid run Management Summary, the following tools
may be utilized.

(a) The TLV, along with the credit window may be
moved +/- 2 hours. The parties may mutually
agree to greater movement which will not be
unreasonably withheld

(b) Unstacking may be used to minimize stacks of
open time, as provided by paragraph [q.(9)],
below.

(c) The PCT may be ignored below the TLV in a
position (excluding pilots who have selected
Vacation Low) to the least extent necessary in
inverse seniority order. However, the Company
will not ignore a pilot request for a line value
above the TLV if unstacking is required.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-23
(d) Bid runs can be run with expanded credit
windows. The size of the initial window on either
side of the TLV will not be reduced.

(e) Other system options by mutual agreement, only
to the extent necessary.

(9) Unstacking will be used only if required to minimize
stacks of open time.

(a) After a bid run solution, if the solution is not
acceptable to award due to remaining,
unmanageable stacks, unstacking may be used
not to exceed 6 days total in a month, n such
case, after collaborative review, the parties may
increase more than 6 days but in no case will the
PWG unreasonably withhold such increase.

(b) f unstacking is utilized it will only be done to the
lowest possible level in inverse seniority to cover
the open flying so as to affect the fewest amount
of pilots in each position.

(c) The unstacking limits will apply to primary and
secondary un-stacks (during multiple bid runs).

(d) Unstacking will be limited to 2 un-stacks (primary
and secondary) in a bid run(s).

(e) Unstacking will be limited up to 30% of the pilots
in a position in inverse seniority order. n a holiday
month, unstacking will be limited up to 50% of the
pilots in a position in inverse seniority order.
However, the PWG may waive such limitations on
a case-by-case basis to cover stacks of open
time. Such waiver will not be unreasonably
withheld.

(f) This unstacking will apply to the number of
regular lines awarded and will not include the
reserve lines.

(g) Before unstacking, the Company will raise the
TLV by making incremental changes to achieve
the desired improvements up to the highest TLV
as provided in paragraph [(2)(c)], above.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-24

(h) The Company and Association will meet and
confer to discuss unstacking limits, if the limits
described in paragraph [(4)(d)], above, cannot be
reasonably met.

(10) All bid run solutions will be conducted to ensure that as
many pilot(s) personal credit threshold preferences are
honored, as well as unstacking as few pilots as possible,
while ensuring the overall integrity of the schedule is
honored.

(11) Captain bid run solutions will be completed first.

r. Mutual Agreement on bid run solutions

(1) The Association and the Company will mutually agree on
the bid run solution(s) to be published as the final
schedule.

(2) f the parties are unable to mutually agree on the bid run
solution(s) by the deadline in the bid package, the
following alternate strike procedure will be used:

(a) From the bid run solutions that have been
performed by the Company and the bid run
solutions performed by the PWG (minimum of 10
runs), the Company will choose 5 bid runs and
the PWG will choose 5 bid runs.

(b) The Company and the Association will flip a coin
to determine who will strike first; the winner of the
coin toss will have the option to strike first or
second. The parties will alternate striking bid
solutions until only 1 bid run remains. The
remaining bid run solution will be published as the
final schedule for that position.

(3) f the strike method is used to determine the final
schedule, the MEC Chairman and the VP of Flight
Operations will meet and confer to try to resolve the
issue(s) as to why the parties were unable to reach a
mutual agreement on the bid run.

(4) f this alternate strike method is used more than 3 times
in a 6 month period or the parties have a dispute
Section 25 Scheduling
25-25
regarding the provisions of paragraph [D.2.o.] The
parties will resolve such dispute as provided by Section
21.

s. Failure to Bid

f a pilot does not submit a bid, or fails to bid, the following
steps will apply:

(1) The Company will maintain an electronic default
standing bid within the PBS system, in which the pilot
may indicate his choice(s) for types of pairings days off,
personal credit threshold, duty-in time, duty-out time, line
value, length of pairings, CDOs, TAFB.

(2) f the pilot has no standing default bid on file, he will be
constructed a line by the PBS system using its default
constraints; which is to utilize all available pairings.

t. Bid Award Errors

f the PBS makes an error in the final bid run solution and
incorrectly builds a pilot's line, incorrectly awards reserve,
incorrectly awards a line or incorrectly awards a pairing(s), the
following process will be used.

(1) The Company will establish an email address for pilots
to inquire about possible errors in their award. The email
will distribute to the Company and the Association. The
Company and Association will meet and confer to reach
a mutually agreeable solution to the problem. n the
event the parties cannot agree on a solution to fix the
errors the following procedure will be used:

(a) f the PBS errors on more than 5% within a
position bid award, the position bid will be re-run
with mutual agreement between the Company
and the Association. The pilot(s) in the position
affected will be notified via electronic means as
soon as possible. f the bid run solution is re-run
the final schedule will not be delayed more than 2
days for that position(s).

(b) f the error(s) is limited to less than 5% of the
pilots within a position such pilot(s) will have the
following options:
Section 25 Scheduling
25-26

(i) Elect to keep the pairing(s) in question and
be paid and credited the value of the
greater of his actual pairing(s) or the
pairing(s) that he should have received.

(ii) Elect to have the pairing(s) removed and
not be paid. f this drops the pilot below the
MMG, or he is already below the MMG,
then his MMG will be adjusted.

(iii) Elect to have the paring(s) removed and be
paid for the trip however the Company may
place a trip in place of that original trip. The
replacement trip must fit within the trip hour
period of the trip that should have been
awarded. f available, the Company will
assign a trip that has duty periods as close
as reasonably practical to the trip that
should have been awarded. A pilot must
be notified of the replacement trip prior to
the commencement of the month in which
the trip is to be flown. f a replacement trip
is not assigned, the pilot is released with
full pay and credit for those days in which
the trip occupied.

(2) f the error is not brought to the Company's attention
within 3 days of the bid award, the Company will not be
required to fix the error or compensate the pilot. Once
communicated to the company, the pilot must respond to
notifications about this error within 24 hours.

u. PBS Working Group

(1) PBS Working Group (PWG) will be established by the
Association and will consist of up to 3 pilot
representatives. The PWG will meet with the Company
each month to reach mutual agreement on the bid run
solutions.

(2) The Company and the PWG will be responsible for
administration of the PBS system as well as potential
changes to the system. Any changes to the system will
be made in writing with mutual agreement between the
Company and the Association.

25-27

(3) The Company and the PWG will consider pilot quality of
life, operational efficiency, and cost when constructing
performing bid run solutions.

(4) Up to 3 PWG members will be eligible to receive vendor-
provided training associated with the software used in
PBS line construction. f there is no cost, replacement
members will be trained at the request of the
Association. f there is a cost associated with such
training the Company will be responsible to train up to
one PWG member for replacement per calendar year.

(5) The PWG will have full access to the PBS administrative
panel and settings and be able to perform bid run
solutions.

(6) The Company will grant Association leave for up to 3
PWG members appointed by the Association, for
participation in the bid run award solutions:

(a) The PWG pilot representatives will be paid and
credited per Section [13.G.7.]

(b) The Company will grant up to 18 days of
Association leave each month for PWG work. The
Association will determine the days in which the
pilot(s) will receive such leave. The Association
will not be responsible to reimburse the Company
for such Association Leave.

(c) The Company will advise the PWG each month of
the trip construction and bid run solution(s)
timeline.

(7) The size of the PWG, and the Association leave granted
for PWG work, may be increased by mutual agreement if
additional domiciles are opened.

rebuilt and re-bid for the balance of the bid period. f
there is insufficient time to re-bid the lines, pilots will fly
the rebuilt trips in accordance with the provisions of this
Section. A pilot's new line will include the same number
of duty days and days off. Rebuilding will be
accomplished after consultation with the Scheduling
Committee.

g. Line Adjustments

(1) Bid Period Adjustments

(a) Once awarded, lines may only be adjusted
because of vacation, jury duty, leaves of absence,
training, military leave, carryin conflicts, projected
or actual FAR legality problems, or as otherwise
specifically provided in this Agreement.

(b) Adjustments will honor seniority, preserve line
continuity, working conditions, and days off,
except as provided in [g.(1).(e)], below.

(c) Notwithstanding section [12.E.1.], any adjustment
to lines during the first 6 days of the bid period
must include 24 hours free from duty at the pilot's
domicile in any 7 consecutive day period.

(d) A pilot may request that his line value not be
adjusted upward. f the request is granted, the
pilot will accept the corresponding reduction of
Section 25 Scheduling
25-37
line value and minimum monthly guarantee, if
applicable.

(e) A pilot's line that requires adjustments because of
FAR limitations or for bid period conflicts may be
adjusted plus or minus 2 hours of his line as
awarded during the first 6 days of the bid period in
the following order:

(i) Trips and/or RA days on originally
scheduled duty days,

(ii) Trips and/or RA days on originally
scheduled duty days extended by 1 day,

(iii) Trips and/or RA days elsewhere in the 6
day period.

(f) As the result of a transition adjustment, a pilot will
be paid plus or minus 2 hours of his original
awarded line or his minimum monthly guarantee,
whichever is greater.

EXAMPLE: A pilot is awarded a line containing 80
hours of block time and 5 hours of
deadhead, giving him an awarded line
value of 85 hours. As a result of any
transition period adjustments, he must
be paid within plus or minus 2 hours
of his awarded line value, which is 85
hours.

(g) A pilot who is assigned an RA day or series of RA
days during the adjustment period may, before
the opening of the nitial Line mprovement
Window, request electronically that Crew
Planning remove the RA day(s) from his
schedule. f no trips are placed over the RA days,
Crew Planning shall drop the RA day(s) and the
pilot's line value and minimum monthly guarantee,
if applicable, will be adjusted. However, if a pilot is
assigned a series of 3 or more RA days, the
removal of the RA day(s) in the middle of that
series from a pilot's schedule will be at the
discretion of Crew Planning.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-38
(h) Adjustments during the first 6 days of the bid
period will not reduce days off to less than the
minimum days off required.

(i) The first, largest set of days off, on the reserve
pilot's line will be designated as immoveable
unless the pilot notifies Crew Scheduling
otherwise by 2359 ET on the first day of the bid
period.

(j) A reserve pilot will be assigned a day off in the
pilot's domicile to meet any FARs or contractual
periods free from duty during the transition from 1
bid period to another.

(k) A reserve pilot granted a leave of absence may
move his scheduled days off into the leave period.

(2) Vacation Adjustments

(a) Lineholders

(i) A pilot will be credited with 3.75 hours for
each day of vacation.

(ii) A pilot will not be responsible for trips in
conflict with a vacation period. The value of
trips lost due to vacation will be deducted
from the pilot's line value. A pilot who does
not move his vacation will receive his
minimum monthly guarantee or his line
value, whichever is greater.

EXAMPLE: A pilots awarded line value is
80 hours. He has 7 vacation
days worth 3.75 hours per day,
totaling 26.25 hours. His
vacation days conflict with two
of his 20-hour 4-day trips.
Crew Planning will drop both 4-
day trips, leaving him with a
line value of 66.25 hours. He
will be paid the minimum
monthly guarantee of 75 hours.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-39
(iii) A pilot may request to remain on the
portion of his trip before or during his
vacation, or that he be placed back on the
portion of his trip following his vacation.
The pilot will be allowed to leave/ rejoin his
bid trip when the trip transits the pilot's
domicile. Line Value will only be reduced
for the portion of a trip not actually flown.
Requests of this nature must be submitted
to Crew Planning. f the pilot does not
transit his domicile as originally scheduled,
he will be removed from his trip when it
does transit his domicile.

(iv) A pilot may request to move his vacation
up to 3 days by giving notice to Crew
Planning no later than 72 hours after the
initial bid award. The request will be
granted if staffing permits.

() f the movement of vacation will not
cause it to cross over from one bid
period to the next (unless already
doing so), then the pilot will be
granted the move unless
extraordinary circumstances exist.

() f the movement of vacation results
in a loss of trips greater than the
loss resulting from the vacation as
originally scheduled, and the loss
(including credit of the vacation
days) reduces the pilot's line value
below the minimum monthly
guarantee, then the pilot will receive
the applicable reduced minimum
monthly guarantee.

EXAMPLE: A pilots awarded line
value is 80 hours. He has 7 vacation
days worth 3.75 hours per day,
totaling 26.25 hours. His vacation
days conflict with one of his 20-hour
4-day trips and as a result of this
conflict, the 4-day trip is dropped
from his schedule. As a result of this
Section 25 Scheduling
25-40
conflict, his adjusted line value is
86.25 hours. Crew Planning then
approves the pilots request to move
his vacation 3 days earlier. This
causes another 4-day trip worth 20
hours to be removed from his
schedule. Because he moved his
vacation resulting in a line value of
less than 75 hours, his new MMG
will be 66.25 hours, which is the
value of his two trips flown, worth 40
hours total, plus the value of his 7
days of vacation, worth 26.25 hours.

(b) Reserves

Vacation periods for a reserve pilot will be placed
on that pilot's line as awarded. Days off in that
month will not be prorated due to vacation.

(3) Training Adjustments

(a) f a trip conflicts with a pilot's initial or upgrade
training, the trip will be removed from the pilot's
schedule and placed in open time. f a trip
conflicts with a pilot's recurrent training, his
schedule may be adjusted in the following order:

(i) Modify the original trip(s). The modified trip
will not begin prior to the originally
scheduled report time and must end on the
originally scheduled duty day;

(ii) Assign trips that operate within the original
duty days. Those trips will not begin prior
to the originally scheduled report time and
must end on the originally scheduled duty
day;

(iii) Assign an RX day.

(b) When a pilot has completed training but is not
eligible to bid in accordance with the bidding
provisions above, or the training is cancelled in
accordance with Section 24, Filling of Vacancies,
the following will apply:
Section 25 Scheduling
25-41

(i) A pilot's seniority within his domicile and
status will determine whether he is a
lineholder or a reserve pilot. A pilot will be
considered a lineholder after completing
training if he has sufficient seniority to hold
a relief line within his current domicile and
status;

(ii) f the pilot is a lineholder, the Company will
construct a line for the pilot using trips
and/or RA days, if necessary. The
minimum days off for this line will be
determined using his seniority in the bid
packet;

(iii) The Company will attempt to grant a pilot's
request for specific days off.

EXAMPLE: A pilot is unable to bid for the
next bid period because he is
scheduled to finish training
after the line bidding process
ends. In order to find out how
many days off he is entitled to,
the Company will look up his
domicile seniority number in
the bid packet. If the pilot is
bidding number 100 in his
domicile and status and line
number 100 is a hard line
containing 14 days off, he shall
receive 14 days off.

(c) Days Off

f a pilot receives less than the required minimum
days off as provided by Section 12, he will contact
Crew Scheduling to ensure he receives the days
off required

(4) Military and Leaves of Absence Adjustments

(a) f a trip conflicts with a pilot's military or other
unpaid leave of absence, the trip will be removed
from that pilot's schedule and placed in open
Section 25 Scheduling
25-42
time. A pilot on leave may request to remain on
his trip before or after his leave until the trip
transits his domicile.

(b) A pilot on military or other unpaid leave of
absence will have his line value reduced by the
value of the trips removed from his schedule.

(i) f the resulting line value is less than the
minimum monthly guarantee, the minimum
monthly guarantee will be reduced to the
new line value.

(ii) f the original line value is below the
minimum monthly guarantee, both the line
value and minimum monthly guarantee will
be reduced by the value of the trips
removed from his schedule.

(c) A reserve pilot's minimum monthly guarantee will
be reduced by 3.75 hours for each reserve day
lost during a military or unpaid leave of absence.

(d) When a pilot returns from a military or other
unpaid leave of absence and is not eligible to bid,
his seniority within his domicile and status will
determine whether he is a lineholder or a reserve
pilot. f the pilot is a lineholder, the Company will
construct a line for the pilot using trips, RA days
or training. The Company will attempt to grant
pilot requests for specific days off. Days off will be
prorated in accordance with the chart provided in
Section [12.E.4.]

(5) 1000 Hour Adjustment

(a) f the pilot reaches 1000 block hours in a calendar
year, he will be released from all duty for the
remainder of the calendar year and will receive
the greater of his line value or minimum monthly
guarantee.

(b) A pilot will not be restricted from picking up open
time for November that would cause him to
exceed 1000 hours in December. However, in
such circumstances, the pilot must pick up any
Section 25 Scheduling
25-43
desired open time prior to his December schedule
being final at the opening of the LW.

EXAMPLE: The Company determines that a pilot
is projected to reach 910 block hours
by November 30. His November
schedule will not be adjusted to
prevent him from reaching 1000 block
hours. The pilot is then awarded a line
for December worth 95 block hours.
The Company may, at this point,
adjust any trips in December to
prevent him from exceeding 1000
block hours.

(6) RA Days

(a) An RA day may be placed on a pilot's schedule
during line construction, when adjustments are
made, and during the construction of relief lines.

(b) A pilot on an RA day will have a 10-hour phone
availability period beginning at 0600 and ending
at 1600 LT at the pilot's domicile.

(c) A pilot on an RA day who is notified of a trip
assignment prior to the start of his phone
availability period is released until report time for
that trip and is no longer phone liable.

(d) f the pilot has a legality conflict, his phone
availability period may be adjusted. f a pilot's
phone availability period is adjusted on the last
day of a block of RA days, it will end no later than
1600 LT.

EXAMPLE: A pilot returns from a flight at 2200 LT
and receives domicile rest of 11
hours. Crew Scheduling will adjust his
RA phone availability period to start at
0900 LT and end at 1900 LT.
However, if it is his last RA day in a
block of RA days, his RA phone
availability period will end at 1600 LT.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-44
(e) A pilot on an RA day must report for duty within 2
hours from the time Crew Scheduling attempts
notification.

(f) A trip assignment on an RA day is limited to the
RA day on the pilot's schedule. f a pilot has

his line value or MMG does not fall below 60
hours.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-45
(b) The Company will adjust the line value and MMG
for a pilot who will be on military leave for a
portion of the bid period to enable the pilot to
utilize these provisions. After the LW, the
Company will readjust the line value and MMG to
reflect the proper credit.

(c) The limit of 60 hours may be adjusted up or down
for all pilots with the agreement of the
Association's Scheduling Committee and the
Company.

(d) Any other limits on a pilot picking up or trading
trips during the nitial Line mprovement Window

removes his RX days, pay protection for those days is
eliminated.

(8) The Company will set the Minimum Level Number in the
Company's computer system for the LW to at least 4
less than the total number of open duty periods for each
calendar day except for the following limitations:

(a) The Company may set the Minimum Level
Number on the calendar days of the 4 highest
duty periods to match the total open duty periods
on those calendar days. f more than one
calendar day is equal to the highest 4 open duty
periods then the total number of days shall not be
greater than 8.

E. RX Days

1. An RX day will be placed on a pilot's schedule when his trip has been
modified or cancelled, or when his recurrent training has cancelled.

2. A lineholder on an RX day will be assigned a trip or a 6-hour Reserve
Availability Period (RAP).

Section 25 Scheduling
25-47
3. A pilot on an RX day will have a RAP for an RX day or series of RX
days that will start at the report time of his original trip, or in the case
of training not originally associated with a trip the report time of the
first day of training.

EXAMPLE: A pilot has a 4-day trip with a report time of 0800 LT. The
trip is subsequently modified for training and he is given
RX days. The RX RAP for each remaining RX day will
start at 0800 LT.

EXAMPLE: A pilot with a relief line is assigned three days of recurrent
training with a report time on the first day of 0800 LT. The
training is subsequently cancelled and replaced with RX
days. The RX RAP for each day will start at 0800 LT.

EXAMPLE: A pilot based in EWR with a relief line is assigned a travel
day followed by three days of recurrent training out of
domicile. The pilots travel to training has a report time of
1230 eastern time. The first day of training has a report
time of 0800 central time. The training is subsequently
cancelled and replaced with RX days. The RX RAP for
each day will start at 0900 eastern time.

4. A pilot on an RX day who is notified of a trip assignment prior to the
start of his RAP is released until report time for that trip and is no
longer phone liable.

5. The RAP on the last day of a block of RX days will end no later than
the original trip termination time.

6. A pilot will not have an RX RAP on the last day of a block of RX days
if his originally scheduled trip report time was later than his originally
scheduled trip termination time.

EXAMPLE: A pilot has an originally scheduled trip report time of 1400.
He has an originally scheduled trip termination time of
1000. If that trip is replaced by RX days, he will not have
an RX RAP on the final day.

7. For the purposes of paragraphs 5.-6., above, RX days separated by
flying or training but not days off will be considered a single block.

EXAMPLE: A pilot has a 4 day trip that is modified for training.
Training is placed on days 2 and 3 and he is assigned RX
days on day 1 and 4. The RX days and training will be
considered a single block.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-48

8. An assignment to a pilot on RX days must report no earlier than the
original trip report time and be scheduled to end no later than the
original trip termination time.

9. A pilot on an RX day must report for duty within 2 hours from the time
Crew Scheduling contacts him as provided by paragraph [G.1.c.],
below.

10. A pilot who picks up a trip or portion of a trip over RX days will be
treated as a pairing modification to the original RX pairing. Any
portion of the pairing picked up on days off will credit as Additional
Pay including any premium pay.

F. Swaps, Drops, Pick-ups, and Mutual Trades

1. General

a. All Swaps, Drops, Pick-Ups, and Mutual Trades will be
automatically processed through SkedPlus+. Crew Scheduling
or Crew Planning will process manual requests in the event that
SkedPlus+ is not able to process such request.

b. Except for coverage and other restriction contained in this
paragraph [F.], there will be no limit on the number of Swaps,
Drops, Pick-ups or Mutual Trades.

c. There will be no limit on the amount of hours added or dropped
as a result of Swaps, Drops, Pick-ups or Mutual Trades.

d. All Swaps, Pick-ups, and Mutual Trades must be within the
same category.

e. Unless open time is Red Flagged, a pilot may not pick up open
time out of his domicile more than 24 hours prior to the report
time of the trip.

f. Posted Pick-ups may be performed out of domicile.

g. Mutual Trade may be performed out of domicile within 24 hours
prior to the report time of the trip.

h. Hotel and travel passes will not be provided to a pilot who picks
up open time, a posted trip, or executes a mutual trade out of
his domicile. However, a pilot will still be entitled to a hotel as
provided by paragraph [J.1.f.], below.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-49

i. A pilot may trade or pick up 2 trips on the same day provided at
least 90 minutes is scheduled between block-in of the first trip
and block-out of the second trip. Only 1 duty period minimum
will apply. f separated by a domicile rest period, 2 duty period
minimums will apply.

j. Crew Scheduling will approve a swap, drop, pick-up, or mutual
trade unless it compromises safety, violates FARs, violates the
provisions of this Section, or reduces the delta number in the
pool display below zero.

k. A trip that is assigned to a lineholder on RX days, or ROE days
is not available for pick-up by another lineholder and will not be
listed in open time in the Company's computer system.

l. A pilot on RX days may pick-up a trip over his RX days.

m. Once a trip is assigned to, or picked up by a lineholder, it is no
longer available for pick up.

n. Lineholder Swaps with Reserves

(1) Except as specified in paragraph [G.1.h.(3)], below, a
lineholder may trade his trip for a trip assigned to a long-
call reserve, short-call reserve or an unassigned trip up
to 18 hours prior to the departure time of his original trip.

(2) Except as specified in paragraph [G.1.h.(3)], below, a
lineholder may trade his trip for a trip assigned to a
short-call reserve or an unassigned trip from between 18
hours to 12 hours prior to the departure time of his
original trip if there is a reserve who is available for the
trip that is being dropped as a result to the trip trade. A
reserve is not considered available for the trip being
dropped if he has been released to show for an
assignment on the same day.

(3) Notwithstanding paragraphs [n.(1)] and [n.(2)] above, an
unassigned trip will be available for trade by a lineholder
at any time at the discretion of Crew Scheduling.

(4) Notwithstanding paragraphs [n.(1)] and [n.(2)] above, if a
reserve has been released to show, and is not
contactable prior to report time for a trip, the trip
Section 25 Scheduling
25-50
assigned to the reserve will not be available for trade or
pickup by a lineholder.

EXAMPLE: A lineholder has a 4-day trip with an 0800
report time. At 1800 the day before, the
lineholder wants to trade his trip for a 4-day
trip (with a 1000 report time on the same
duty days) that is in open time, but already
assigned to a short-call reserve. Because
the short-call reserve is available to do the 4-
day trip that the lineholder wants to drop, this
trade shall be approved.

EXAMPLE: A lineholder has a 4-day trip with an 0800
report time. At 1800 the day before, the
lineholder wants to trade his trip for a 4-day
trip (with a 1000 report time on the same
duty days) that is in open time, but already
assigned to a short-call reserve. However,
the short-call reserve pilot is not legal to do
the 4-day trip that the lineholder wants to
drop but there are other reserve pilots
available to do that trip and because of this,
the trade shall be approved.

EXAMPLE: A lineholder has a 4-day trip with an 0800
report time. At 1800 the day before, the
lineholder wants to trade his trip for a 4-day
trip (with a 1000 report time on the same
duty days) that is in open time, but already
assigned to a short-call reserve. However,
the short-call reserve pilot is not available to
do the 4-day trip that the lineholder wants to
drop and there are no other reserves
available to do the trip this trip and because
of this, the trade will not be approved inside
of 18 hours.

EXAMPLE: A lineholder has a 4-day trip with an 0800
report time. At 1800 the day before, the
lineholder wants to trade his 4-day trip for
two 2-day trips that operate on the same four
duty days. One of those 2-day trips (with a
1000 report time) is assigned to a short-call
reserve and the other 2-day trip is in open
time unassigned. There is a short-call
Section 25 Scheduling
25-51
reserve pilot that is legal to do the 4-day trip
that the lineholder wants to drop and
because of this, the trade shall be approved.

EXAMPLE: A lineholder has a 4-day trip with an 0800
report time. At 1800 the day before, the
lineholder wants to trade his 4-day trip for a
2-day trip that operates on the first two duty
days of his original 4-day trip. There is a
short-call reserve pilot that is legal to do the
4-day trip that the lineholder wants to drop
and the delta in the Companys computer
system on the third and fourth duty day is
above zero and because of this, the trade
shall be approved.
.
o. A pilot may pick up an unassigned trip at any time prior to the
report time of the trip.

p. A pilot may swap or pick up trips from open time provided that
there is 13 hours between debrief time and report time.
However, a pilot may voluntarily pick up a trip or make a trip
trade that reduces his rest to 12 hours. f the pilot voluntarily
reduces his rest below 13 hours, he will in no case receive less
than FAR minimum rest. He will not receive a hotel room
between these trips.

q. Trips will be awarded from open time on a first-come, first-
served basis.

r. A pilot may swap trips into his vacation.

s. A pilot may pick up trips during his vacation.

t. A reserve pilot may not pick up open time except as provided in
paragraph [G.9.], below.

u. A pilot may reduce his minimum days off as a result of swaps
or the pick-up of open time.

v. Crew Scheduling shall remove the personal drop code from a
pilot's schedule after approving a personal drop, vacation code
from a pilot's schedule if requested, and ROE code to facilitate
a trip pick-up.

2. Pool Display
Section 25 Scheduling
25-52

a. The Company pool display will contain the number of net
reserves, the minimum reserve level, the difference between
net reserves and minimum level ("delta), and the basement
level.

b. The Company will set Basement Levels determined by
objective data. The Company and the Association will mutually
agree on the objective data which will include at least historical
unplanned absences and the number of trips operating each
day.

3. Trading of Reserve Days

Reserve pilots may trade reserve days subject to the approval of Crew
Scheduling.

4. Line mprovement Window

a. The Line mprovement Window will be available after schedules
are final and will remain open throughout the bid period except
during computer maintenance and the adjustment period.

b. All time added or deducted as a result of pick-ups or swaps
during the Line mprovement Window will be paid in
accordance with paragraph [F.11.], below.

c. A swap or drop that results in an additional open duty period in
the next bid period will not be approved until the next month's
schedules are final. A day-for-day trade will be approved.

5. "Bad Day/Worse Day Trip Trades

a. Except as provided in paragraphs [5.b.] and [5.c.], below,
lineholders will be permitted to trade trips from days with
reserve coverage that is less than the minimum required to
days with worse reserve coverage.

b. Pilots may not utilize the day that the transaction is being
requested and the subsequent 3 days for the purposes of this
paragraph. However, Crew Scheduling may approve such
trades if operational circumstances permit.

EXAMPLE: A pilot attempts a bad day/worse day trip trade
request on June 5 to request to trade a trip from
June 20 for a trip on June 6. This trade will be
Section 25 Scheduling
25-53
denied because June 6 is within 3 days of the date
of the transaction request.

EXAMPLE: A pilot attempts a bad day/worse day trip trade
request on April 15 to request to trade a trip from
April 20 for a trip on April 27. This trade will be
approved (assuming it is from a day of bad
coverage to worse coverage) because April 27 is
more than 3 days after the date of the transaction
request.

c. A BD/WD trade will be denied if it would result in a day
dropping below the basement number.

d. Worse reserve coverage exists only if the trip being picked up
has a larger cumulative negative delta in the reserve pool
display than the trip being dropped. The examples below will
use the following pool display numbers, and assumes that a
request is made more than 72 hours in advance.

wants to trade it for a 4-day trip beginning on
25th. The cumulative delta of his original days is
-23 and the cumulative delta of the days he
wants to trade for is -36. Since -36 is a greater
delta than -23, this trade will be approved.

Section 25 Scheduling

EXAMPLE 2: A pilot has a 3-day trip beginning on the 20th and
wants to trade it for a 2-day trip beginning on the
25th. The cumulative delta of his original days is -
09 and the cumulative delta of the days he wants
to trade for is -35. Because the trade would result
in the 22nd falling below the basement level, this
trade will not be approved.

EXAMPLE 3: A pilot has a 4-day trip beginning on the 24th and
wants to trade it for a 4-day trip beginning on the
18th. The cumulative delta of his original days is
-40 and the cumulative delta of the days he
wants to trade for is -23. Since
-23 is not a greater delta than -40, this trade will
not be approved.

e. Bad Day/Worse Day Trades for Reserve Pilots

(1) A reserve pilot will be permitted to trade duty days on
which reserve coverage is less than the required
minimum for days with worse reserve coverage,
provided the trade:

(a) Does not result in a block with only a single duty
day

(b) Does not reduce a block of 4 or 5 duty days to
less than 3 duty days

(c) Does not reduce any block of days off to less than
2 days off. This includes the last day of a bid
period prior to loading the next month's schedule.

(d) Does not remove a day(s) from the middle of a
block of duty days

(e) Does not result in a day dropping below the
basement number.

(2) Worse reserve coverage exists only if when compared
on a day-by-day basis, each duty day to be traded for
has a larger negative delta than the corresponding duty
day of the originally scheduled duty days. The examples
below will use the following pool display numbers, and
assume that a request is made more than 72 hours in
advance.

reserve days beginning on the 25th. The
deltas of his original days are -06,
-13, -03, and -01. The deltas of the days
he wants to trade for are -11, -14, -06, and
-05. Since the deltas of the days to be
picked up are each greater than the
corresponding days to be dropped and
above the basement level, this trade will
be approved.

EXAMPLE 2: A pilot has 3 reserve days beginning on
the 19th and wants to trade them for 3
reserve days beginning on the 25th. The
deltas of his original days are -13,
-03, and -01. The deltas of the days he
wants to trade for are -11, -14, and -06.
Since the delta of the first day to be
picked up is not greater than the delta of
the first day to be dropped, this trade will
not be approved.

EXAMPLE 3: A pilot has a block of reserve days from
the 25th to the 29th of a 31-day month.
Worse coverage exists on the 30th of the
month than the 25th of the month. Before
Section 25 Scheduling
25-56
the schedules for the next month are
loaded, the pilot requests to trade the 25th
for the 30th. This trade will be denied
since it will reduce the block of days off on
the 30th to less than two. If the request is
made after the schedules for the next
month are loaded and the 1st of the next
month is a day off, this trade will be
approved since there will still be at least 2
days off.

EXAMPLE 4: A pilot requests to trade his reserve day
on the 22nd for a reserve day on the 16th.
This trade will be denied because it would
reduce the 22nd below the basement
level.

(3) Trade requests submitted at least 3 days in advance of
the day(s) to be traded will be approved subject to the
provisions in this paragraph [5.e.] Requests within 3
days may be approved by the Company at its discretion
if operational circumstances permit.

(4) A reserve pilot will also be permitted to trade duty days
on which reserve coverage is equal to or above the
required minimum for days on which reserve coverage is
below the required minimum, and will be able to trade
duty days on which coverage is above the required
minimum for days on which reserve coverage is also
above minimum, provided the trade is in accordance
with paragraphs [e.(1)(a)-(e)], above.

6. Mutual Trades

a. Pilots may trade trips with each other in accordance with the
applicable paragraphs of [F.1.], above, and paid in accordance
with paragraph [F.11.], below.

b. Reserve pilots may trade equal sets of reserve days provided
neither pilot will be on reserve more than 6 consecutive days or
have less than 2 consecutive days off as a result of the trade.

c. Mutual trades between pilots will not be denied because of
reserve coverage.

7. Personal Drops
Section 25 Scheduling
25-57

a. A pilot may request a personal drop of any assignment other
than training. However, if a reserve pilot requests a personal
drop of a reserve day, he may not make this request earlier
than 48 hours prior to the start of that reserve day.

b. Approval of a personal drop will be in accordance with
paragraphs [F.1.b.-c.] and [F.1.j.], above. Pay will be in
accordance with the applicable portions of paragraph [F.11.],
below.

c. A pilot may drop a trip or a portion of a trip.

d. A personal drop will not be approved prior to the opening of the
Line mprovement Window.

8. Trip Postings

a. A pilot may post a trip or a portion of a trip in the Company's
computer system for pickup by another pilot.

b. The pilot posting the trip will be responsible for that trip until the
pick-up is confirmed.

c. Trades accomplished under this paragraph will be approved
and paid in accordance with the applicable paragraphs of [F.1.],
above, and [F.11.], below.

d. A pilot will be permitted to post trips that carry over from one
bid period to another once the Company's computer system
allows this to be an automated process.

e. The Company will approve pick-up of postings trips on the
same day the trip begins or on the same day as an already-
scheduled trip in accordance with the applicable paragraphs of
[F.1.], above, and [F.11.], below.

f. The lead time error for automated trip posting pick-ups in the
Company's computer system shall be set at no greater than 4
hours prior to departure time of that trip. The Company and the
ALPA Scheduling Committee Chairman may mutually agree to
change this paragraph.

9. Crew Gate Swap

Section 25 Scheduling
25-58
Under regular operations, pilots may initiate a change to their flight
assignment(s) up to a reasonable time prior to scheduled departure
time, provided the following procedures are adhered to:

a. Crew Scheduling is contacted prior to the scheduled departure
time of the flight.

b. Both pilots agree to the "Gate Swap.

c. Accepting pilot is qualified and legal for the flight assignment.

d. The dropping pilot shall not be relieved of duty until the
accepting pilot is present at the departure gate.

e. Both pilots shall make verbal confirmation of the gate swap with
Crew Scheduling.

f. f the accepting pilot was on a scheduled paid deadhead, the
accepting pilot will now be paid flight credit pay and the
dropping pilot will forfeit any associated pay with that leg,
unless they are using the deadhead.

g. Pilots may not be approved for a gate swap for a deadhead
only (actual flight leg must be exchanged in the transaction).

h. The pilot giving up the leg(s) will not receive pay and credit for
the legs dropped including his min-day credits.

i. Pilots recognize that if scheduling work load is such that it will
not permit the swap the pilots will not delay the flight in order to
make the swap.

j. After crew scheduling makes the swap the pilot taking the flight
will coordinate the change with dispatch.

k. This provision does not apply to international legs or if the swap
prohibits the use of an available reserve.

10. Partial Trip Pickups

A pilot will be permitted to pick up portions of trip(s) with the following
restrictions:

a. A pilot will be able to indicate which legs of a trip(s) he wants to
add to his schedule.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-59
b. Crew scheduling will have 12 hours to process the request(s).

c. The trip(s) will be taken out of open time until the transaction is
complete. The remaining portion(s) of the trip will be put back in
open time as soon as the request has been processed

d. A pilot who is awarded a portion of a trip(s) will not have the
minimum day pay applied on the day(s) the pairing was split
per Section [3.XX.], applied to the day(s) of the portion of the
pairing requested to be added. The minimum day pay will only
apply to the day(s) the pairing was not split.

e. The Company will depict trips so as to identify that a minimum
day credit will not apply on the day that a pilot initiated splitting
a trip.

11. Pay for Swaps, Drops, Pick-ups, and Mutual Trades.

a. A pilot who trades a trip, personal drops a trip, or personal
drops a portion of a trip that reduces his line value below the
minimum monthly guarantee will have his minimum monthly
guarantee reduced by the number of hours the new line value
dropped below the minimum monthly guarantee.

b. f a pilot's original line value is less than the minimum monthly
guarantee, his line value and minimum monthly guarantee will
decrease by the amount of hours dropped.

c. f a pilot adds time as a result of a trade or pick-up of a trip in
the LW, his line value will increase by the number of hours the
pilot adds. The minimum monthly guarantee will be increased
by the amount of time that the pilot adds if it is below 75 hours,
but in no case will the minimum monthly guarantee increase
above 75 hours.

d. A pilot who picks up a trip on his day(s) off during the Line
mprovement Window will be credited for the trip as provided by
Section 3 as additional pay. However, if a pilot trades that trip
for another trip, the new trip will no longer be credited as
additional pay and will be credited to line value.

e. f a pilot drops a trip or a portion of a trip through a personal
drop or a trip advertisement, that pilot will not receive minimum
day pay for the affected duty period(s).

Section 25 Scheduling
25-60
f. Except as provided by paragraph [10.d.], above, a pilot who
picks up a trip from open time on a day off will be entitled to Min
Day pay.

g. A pilot who picks up a posted trip will be entitled to minimum
day pay as provided by paragraph [10.d.], above.

h. A pilot who trades for a trip that operates within his vacation
period will be credited vacation pay plus the value of the trip
added to his line value.

i. A pilot who picks up a trip that operates within his vacation
period during the Line mprovement Window will be credited
vacation pay to his line value and the value of the trip as add
pay. A pilot who trades a trip that operates on vacation days for
another trip over vacation days within the same vacation period
will be credited as add pay.

j. A pilot on ROE status, who is released to days off, shall only
have the value of the time dropped as a result of a personal
drop deducted from his line value, or if applicable, his minimum
monthly guarantee.

EXAMPLE: A lineholder is ROEd for his 4-day trip, worth 20
hours. He is then released from duty for all but the
last 2 segments of his trip. He subsequently
personal drops the last 2 segments of his trip, worth
4 hours, and thus he will be paid 16 hours for the
ROEd trip.

k. Advertised trips that are picked up shall be credited as add-pay
except when a pilot is on RX days or has not been released
from ROE status.

l. Errors

When an inadvertent scheduling or clerical error results in a
loss of credited time to a pilot, through no fault of the pilot the
pilot shall be paid and credited for any time lost, provided that
the pilot uses reasonable diligence to discover the error and
notifies the Company prior to the commencement of the duty
assignment.

12. Red Flagged Open Time

Section 25 Scheduling
25-61
a. At any time, the Company may designate all open time during a
period of time in any position as Red Flagged. f OE Check
Airmen events are Red Flagged, the Red Flag pay will include
OE Check Airmen override.
b. Red Flagged Open Time will be available to pilots in
accordance with this paragraph [F.]
c. The Company will announce when open time is Red Flagged
via my messages and SkedPlus+.
d. Red Flagged Open Time will be credited at 150% in the
following instances:
(1) For pairings picked up on days off that contain at least
one day that has been Red Flagged, the entire pairing
will be paid at the Red Flag rate.
(2) For a trade resulting in additional Red Flagged work
days the additional Red Flagged days will be paid at the
Red Flag rate. n all cases, the day(s) credited at Red
Flag rates will begin at the last day of the new pairing. n
the case of multiple trip trades, only the last trip trade will
determine eligibility for Red Flag pay.
EXAMPLE 1: A lineholder trades a 2-day trip for a 4-day
trip over Red Flagged days. The last two
days of the 4-day trip will be paid at Red
Flag rates.
EXAMPLE 2: A lineholder trades a 2-day trip for a 3-day
trip. The pilot then trades the 3-day trip
for a 4-day trip. This is done over Red
Flagged days. Only the last day of the 4-
day trip will be paid at Red Flag rates
because the final trip trade resulted in one
additional Red Flag day.
e. Pickups and trip trades that were executed outside of the time
frame that the red flag was raised will be paid at regular rates.
However, such premium pay will be retroactive to transactions
during the red flagged period that were executed on the same
day the flag was raised. For the purposes of this paragraph a
day is considered to begin at 2400 Domicile Time.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-62
f. The Vice President of Flight Operations and the MEC Chairman
may mutually agree to increase the Red Flagged premium rate
above 150%. n this case, all instances of junior manning,
reassignments normally paid at 150%, and training on a day off
during the red flagged period will be paid at the higher rate.

g. A pilot may add additional flying outside of the footprint of his
existing pairing on a red flagged day. Such additional flying will
be paid at red flag rates.

EXAMPLE: A pilot adds a turn before the show time of a
pairing on a day that is red flagged. The extra turn
will be paid at red flag rates.

13. Crew Systems Maintenance

The Company may close open time for routine maintenance and
upgrades with the following restrictions:

website, 3 days in advance of scheduled open time
maintenance.

c. Open time maintenance will generally be conducted between
1159 ET and 0659 ET.

d. Open time maintenance will not exceed 10 hours per month.

e. Open time transactions received before the closure of the open
time will be processed.

G. Reserve Pilots

1. General

other electronic device contact information and update any
changes with Crew Scheduling or the Company's computer
system.

b. A reserve pilot must be available by phone or other electronic
device throughout the RAP.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-63
c. A pilot is considered notified of an assignment when either the
Company has contacted him or has made recorded attempts to
contact the pilot at all telephone numbers listed in the
Company's computer system. Except as described in
paragraphs [1.i.], and [4.e.], below, assigning a trip in the
Company's computer system does not constitute notification.

d. Release to show

A reserve pilot may be prospectively released until his show for
a trip assigned by Crew Scheduling. Such pilot will remain on
his scheduled RAP(s) and be automatically released 11 hours
prior to report of the trip assigned.

e. A reserve pilot who has been assigned a trip is still considered
to be on reserve and may be reassigned.

f. A reserve pilot may be released from his RAP if approved by
Crew Scheduling.

(1) f given a flight assignment, a long-call reserve pilot will
also be assigned an 11 hour rest period, after which his
RAP, and duty day, will commence.

(2) f no earlier rest period is assigned, a long call reserve
pilot will automatically be released to show 11 hours
prior to his report time.

g. A reserve pilot's day off or rest periods will not be designated
retroactively.

h. Reserve Trip Ownership

(1) A trip assigned to a long-call reserve will be available for
pick up or trade by a lineholder until 15 hours prior to the
scheduled departure time of the trip.

(2) A trip assigned to a short-call reserve will be available
for pick up or trade by a lineholder until 9 hours prior to
the scheduled departure time of the trip.

(3) A trip assigned to a reserve pilot for consolidation of
skills will be owned by that reserve once assigned.

Section 25 Scheduling
25-64
(4) A trip picked up by a reserve as provided by paragraph
[9.a.], below, will not be available for pickup or trade by a
lineholder.

i. Reserve Pairing Debrief

(1) At the end of the debrief of a pairing a reserve pilot must:

(a) Contact Crew Scheduling; or
(b) Check SkedPlus+.

(2) At the time of contact Crew scheduling must:

(a) Give the pilot a new assignment for the current
duty day; or

(b) Assign him airport standby as provided by
paragraph [6.i.(2)], below; or

(c) Release him to days off; or

(d) Release him to show for his next assignment; or

(e) Release him to domicile rest and his next RAP,
which may include a new assignment.

(3) f a reserve pilot checks SkedPlus+ he is responsible for
self-notifying any changes as provided by paragraph
[i.(2)], above.

(4) f there are no new assignments in SkedPlus+ by the
end of the debrief of his pairing, he will be released to
domicile rest or days off.

EXAMPLE: Fifteen minutes after finishing his trip, a reserve
pilot checks SkedPlus+ for another assignment.
Because Crew Scheduling has not assigned him
another trip, the pilot is released to either days off
or domicile rest, whichever is applicable.

EXAMPLE: Fifteen minutes after finishing his trip, a reserve
pilot contacts Crew Scheduling to be released.
Crew Scheduling tells the pilot to call back in 30
minutes for a possible assignment. This is incorrect
as Crew Scheduling must do one of the options in
paragraph [i.(2)], above at the time of contact
Section 25 Scheduling
25-65

j. Reserve Pilot/Regular Pilot Transitions

(1) A reserve pilot who transitions to a regular pilot in the
ensuing month may be required to continue a flight
assignment into the ensuing month. Such pilot will be
subject to the provisions of this Agreement applicable to
a regular pilot in the ensuing month beginning at 0001
on the first day of the ensuing month. For example, the
pilot will be eligible for cancellation pay in accordance
with the provisions of this Agreement for any portion(s)
of the trip that occurs in the ensuing month.

(2) A reserve pilot who is given an assignment that carries
over into the ensuing month in which he is a regular pilot
and his final award contains a conflicting trip, will be paid
the greater of the reserve flight assignment or any lost
block as a result of the carry over trip.

(3) A regular pilot who transitions to a reserve pilot in the
ensuing month with a flight assignment that transition
into the ensuing month will continue on that flight
assignment as a reserve pilot into the ensuing month.

of his domicile for a period not scheduled to exceed 5
consecutive days.

(2) A pilot may volunteer for specific blocks of out-of-
domicile reserve assignments. Requests must be
submitted to Crew Scheduling.

(3) Crew Scheduling will utilize the volunteer list prior to
assigning other reserve pilots.
Section 25 Scheduling
25-66

(4) A reserve pilot will be listed for a flight from his domicile
at the time that the out-of-domicile reserve is assigned.

(5) A pilot who is assigned out-of-domicile reserve will be
permitted to pick up any trips in open time available to
reserves in the out-of-domicile location, in accordance
with the aggressive pick up window for reserve pilots in
paragraph [G.8.], below.

(6) The RAP for out-of-domicile reserve pilots will be the
same local time in the out-of-domicile location as the
applicable RAP in the pilot's domicile, unless changed in
accordance with paragraphs [4.j.] or [5.d.], below.

(7) A pilot assigned out-of-domicile reserve must contact
crew scheduling via telephone for release to the hotel
after arrival at the out-of-domicile location.

m. A reserve pilot who has consecutive duty days with different
RAPs across two bid periods will be automatically released 10
hours prior to the start of the new RAP.

EXAMPLE: A reserve pilot has a RAP in the March bid period
of 0900-2400 and a RAP in the April bid period of
0400-1800. If he has a group of duty days that
carry over from the March bid period to the April bid
period, he will be automatically released from his
RAP on the last day of the March bid period at
1800.

2. A reserve pilot, including an airport standby pilot, will not be assigned
to fly a trip(s) which would result in being away from his domicile more
than 4 days.

a. f there is a suitable assignment that will result in a fifth or six
day away from his domicile without domicile rest, the Company
will give the pilot the option to fly the assignment, or be
released from the assignment, unless being released would
result in a cancellation of a flight or cause a regular pilot to be
extended or Junior assigned.

LT at his domicile on the first day of reserve in a block of
reserve days and ending at 1200 LT at his domicile on the last
day of reserve in a block of reserve days.
c. f a long-call reserve has not been given an assignment by
0900 LT at his domicile on his last day of reserve in a block of

The policy will apply to flights from other destinations, provided he
selects 2 flights as provided in paragraph 4.d.(2), below.

4. Commuter Policy Procedures

a. This policy covers a pilot who is:

(1) a regular pilot (blockholder) traveling to a flight
assignment,

(2) a reserve as provided in paragraph K.8., below,

(3) an instructor pilot traveling to a training event, or

(4) a pilot traveling to a training event, provided he selects 2
flights as provided in paragraph 4.d.(2), below.

b. Documentation

(1) Upon request, pilots will be responsible for providing
relevant documentation to the Company to establish
their compliance with this policy. For example,
documentation such as available seat information from a
pass travel website or seat map information from an
airline reservation website will be sufficient.

(2) A pilot commuting by means of transportation other than
air must provide reasonable evidence of the reason for
failure to report.

c. For the purpose of this paragraph K., a "flight refers to a single
leg or multiple legs used by a pilot to travel to his duty location.

seating requirements in paragraph d., below, and must have
reasonable connection times.

Section 26 General
26-9
d. A pilot commuting by air must choose one of the following:

(1) One flight to the airport at which his assignment
originates with a seat available for sale to the public or
an available jumpseat not more than 36 hours but not
less than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled
departure time for the flight he expects to use to
commute to work (his "commuting flight).

(2) Two flights to the airport at which his assignment
originates with a seat available for sale to the public or
an available jumpseat within 36 hours in advance of the
scheduled departure time for the flight he expects to use
to commute to work (his "commuting flight).

e. The commuting flight must be scheduled to arrive at least 15
minutes before his assigned report time or beginning of his
Reserve Availability Period ("RAP). However, if customs
clearance is required the flight must be scheduled to arrive at
least 60 minutes before the pilot's assigned report time or
beginning of his RAP.

f. A commuting pilot must comply with each carrier's pass travel
and/or jumpseat policy.

g. f a pilot anticipates he will not arrive at his domicile in sufficient
time to report for his assignment, he will notify crew scheduling
as soon as possible. The pilot must specifically inform the crew
scheduler that he is invoking the commuter policy. The pilot will
coordinate his return to duty with crew scheduling as provided
in paragraph 6., below. The pilot will inform crew scheduling of
material changes to his ETA at the assignment location.

5. Effect of Commuting Failure

a. A pilot who has complied with these procedures but is unable to
report for his flight assignment at report time (regular pilot), or
to position himself to begin his RAP (reserve pilot), will not be
subject to any discipline or occurrence as a result of his inability
to report or begin his RAP on time.

b. Flight Selection Requirements

A pilot will have the option of selecting 1 flight or 2 flights for his
commute. All such flights must meet the requirements of
paragraph K.4., above.
Section 26 General
26-10

(1) A pilot has the option to select 1 flight to commute,
however he will only be eligible to avoid discipline due to
commuting failure 3 times in a rolling 12 month period
using the 1 flight rule. Such pilot will still be eligible to
select 2 flights as provided in paragraph b.(2)., below.

(2) f a pilot selects 2 flights for his commute, there will be
no limit on the number of times he can invoke the
commuter policy to avoid discipline.

c. The Company will not count a pilot's use of the Commuting
Pilot Policy toward the maximum usage limits contained in
paragraph 5.b.(1)., above, whenever such use occurs during
the time a waiver, in accordance with Section 25.XX, is in

6. Reassignment

a. f a pilot is unable to arrive in time for his trip, he will notify Crew
Scheduling as soon as practical, and state whether he is able
to report to his domicile. Crew Scheduling may deadhead the
pilot from his current location without pay or credit to rejoin his
scheduled or rescheduled trip.

b. f the pilot is able to report to his domicile, Crew Scheduling
may:

(1) deadhead the commuting pilot, without pay or credit, to
join his trip,

(2) place the commuting pilot on his trip when it transits his
domicile,

(3) reschedule the commuting pilot for another trip, in
accordance with Section 25.XX.

c. f Crew Scheduling is unable to reassign a regular pilot under
paragraphs 6.b.(1)-(3), above, such pilot may, by mutual
agreement between the pilot and Crew Scheduling, be placed
on short call reserve, as provided in Section 25.XX.

d. A reserve pilot will be placed on short-call reserve for the
remainder of his original reserve period(s) when he reaches his
domicile.

Section 26 General
26-11
7. Compensation

a. Regular Pilot

(1) A pilot who complies with this policy but does not report
for his assignment on time will not receive any pay or
credit for any flight assignment missed and will have his
minimum monthly guarantee adjusted in accordance
with Section 4, as applicable. The missed portion of the
assignment will be treated as a voluntary schedule
change. n such case the minimum-day credit will not be
paid on that day.

(2) A pilot will be eligible for pay and credit only for any
portion of his flight assignment that he actually flies or for
which he is rescheduled (not including any deadhead to
join his originally scheduled or rescheduled trip) after he
has reported for duty following his commuting failure.

(3) A regular pilot who is placed on reserve as provided in
paragraph 6.c., above, will be paid the greater of the
value of a reserve day for each day he is on call or the
value of any flight assignments he receives.

b. Reserve Pilot

f crew scheduling releases the reserve pilot, the reserve pilot's
minimum monthly guarantee will be adjusted in accordance
with Section 4, to reflect that the reserve pilot was not available
for reserve for that RAP. f crew scheduling does not release
the reserve pilot, his minimum monthly guarantee will not be
adjusted.

8. Applicability to Reserve Pilots

a. A short-call reserve pilot can use this policy while attempting to
position himself in advance of his RAP.

b. A long-call reserve pilot can use this policy while attempting to
position himself in advance of an assignment if he meets the
requirements of the policy. Otherwise, the long-call reserve pilot
can use this policy while attempting to position himself in

such process(es) to meet timelines prescribed in this Agreement or to
avoid disruption or unnecessary expense to the Company's operation.

any material, such posting or publishing may be done electronically. f
such posting or publishing was previously accomplished by non-
electronic means, the Company will provide at least 30 days' notice to
the Association of its intent to transition such material to electronic
form. During this 30-day period, the parties will meet upon request to
discuss and attempt to resolve issues associated with the change
from non-electronic posting and/or publishing to electronic means. f
the electronic posting or publishing implemented by the Company is in
lieu of a specific contractual requirement for the use of non-electronic
means, the Association may invoke paragraphs U.4.b.-g., below, to
have a review of such electronic process.

3. The Company may implement and use electronic processes whenever
it deems necessary or desirable, including the substitution of
electronic processes for processes that have theretofore been
accomplished by other means. However, before making a transition to
an electronic process(es), the Company will provide at least a 30-day
notice to the Association of its intent to transition such process(es)
from non-electronic to electronic.

a. f the Company desires to implement an electronic process in
lieu of a specific contractual requirement for the use of non-
electronic means, it may do so only after providing at least a
30-day notice to the Association of its intent to transition such
process(es) from non-electronic to electronic. n addition, the
Company will continue the non-electronic process concurrently
with the electronic process for at least 60 days. f the
Association reasonably determines that such change requires
additional time, it may notify the Company in writing at least 14
Section 26 General
26-16
days before the expiration of the original 60-day period that it
will require the Company to continue the non-electronic process
concurrently with the electronic process for up to an additional
60 days (total of 120 days). During the period of concurrent
operation, the parties will meet upon request to discuss and
attempt to resolve issues associated with the change from non-
electronic to electronic means.

b. f after the period of concurrent operation has run, the
Association contends that the substituted electronic means of
accomplishing the required non-electronic item is not a
reasonable substitute, the Association may require that the
issue be arbitrated.

arbitrator. f mutual agreement is not possible, the arbitrator will
be selected from the list of arbitrators contained in Section
21.XX by alternately striking names until 1 remains. The parties
will determine the order of striking by the toss of a coin. The
winner of the coin toss will have the choice of striking first or
second.

consistent with the arbitrator's schedule and the parties'
schedules. n coordination with the arbitrator's and the parties'
schedules, the parties will set a time and date for a hearing,

hearing, unless mutually agreed otherwise. Fees and expenses
of the arbitrator, as well as costs of the hearing room and the
stenographic report, will be shared equally by the parties.
Otherwise, the parties will bear their respective costs and
expenses.

e. At the discretion of each party, closing arguments may be
made in lieu of post-hearing briefs. The arbitrator's decision will
be issued no later than 21 days following the close of the
record and the submission of any brief desired by any party.
The arbitrator's decision will be final and binding.

f. The arbitrator's decision will be limited to a determination of (1)
whether a non-electronic means is required by the Agreement;
and (2) whether the electronic means substituted for the
required non-electronic means reasonably meets the objective,
albeit through electronic means, of the contractual requirement.
As a remedy, the arbitrator is limited to requiring the Company
to resume, if it has stopped, the non-electronic means.
Section 26 General
26-17

g. Upon either party's request, the arbitrator will retain jurisdiction
to determine whether the original issue arbitrated has
subsequently been adjusted so that the electronic means
complies with paragraph U.4.f., above, in which case the
arbitrator will modify his award to permit the electronic means.
However, if an arbitrator has determined that the electronic
means complies with paragraph U.4.f., above, there will be no
retention of jurisdiction.

Association, nternational (hereinafter referred to as "ALPA or "the Association)
(hereinafter collectively referred to as the "parties).

WHEREAS the Company and the Association are parties to a collective
bargaining agreement setting forth the rates of pay, rules and working conditions for
the Company's pilots ("Agreement), effective ________ __, 2012, and

WHEREAS THE Aviation Safety Action Program ("ASAP) is the result of an
agreement between the Company, the Association and the Federal Aviation
Administration ("FAA) based on FAA AC 120-66B and which was codified in a
Memorandum of Understanding dated _____ __, 2012, which is not part of the
Agreement, and

WHEREAS the Company and the Association share the goal of operating
with the highest degree of safety and agree that the ASAP contributes to that goal,
and

WHEREAS the Company and the Association desire to clarify and
incorporate into the Agreement certain policies and procedures related to the
operation of the ASAP.

NOW THEREFORE, it is mutually agreed:

1. The Company and the Association will each select an Event Review
Committee ("ERC) member and an alternate ERC member. The alternate
ERC member will participate in ERC meetings when the primary ERC
member is unable to attend. Such members will attend and complete the
LOA 4 ASAP Policies and Procedures
LOA-14
ASAP training course (jointly developed or approved by the Company and
the Association) prior to acting as an ERC member.

2. No Company personnel other than the ASAP Program Manager and ERC
members will have access to ASAP reports that have been filed but not yet
accepted into ASAP. The Director Corporate Safety may designate an
alternate ASAP Program Manager, in the event the ASAP Program Manager
will be unavailable for an extended period of time, to ensure the timely
administration of the ASAP. The alternate ASAP Program Manager will be
identified to the members and alternate members of the ERC.

3. Following timely submission and prior to acceptance or rejection of an ASAP
report, the Company will not require further information from the pilot.
Following acceptance of the report into, or rejection from, the ASAP, the
Company may require statements and/or interviews of the pilot involved.

Note: This provision does not relieve the pilot of his obligation to provide
information to Flight Control and Flight Operations management as
described in the FOM, Chapter [__].

4. The Company and the Association recognize that safety, regulatory and
business requirements may require that consideration of an ASAP report be
expedited. Consideration of such report may be expedited at the request of
a member of the ERC. The party requesting expedited handling of the report
will contact the ASAP Program Manager who will contact the ERC and
request such expedited handling. n a case that has been expedited, the pilot
should be prepared to submit a statement to the Company in an expedited
manner after the ERC has accepted the ASAP report.

5. ASAP reports will be de-identified so that no person other than the ASAP
Program Manager can identify the crewmembers from the ASAP report.
Following acceptance of the ASAP report and in the event the ERC
determines it requires further information, the ASAP Program Manager may
provide the pilot's identity to the ERC.

6. After an ASAP report has been accepted by the ERC, the Company may
conduct a review contemporaneous with or subsequent to any ERC
investigation. The ERC will give due consideration to the Company's
recommendation in determining appropriate corrective action.

7. The Company will abide by the corrective action assigned by the ERC. The
Company shall neither assign discipline (e.g., letter of warning, letter of
counsel, suspension) nor evaluation events (e.g., proficiency checks, line
checks or oral checks) nor assign further corrective action for any pilot
involved in an incident who has filed an ASAP report that has been accepted
and processed (and not later rejected) by the ERC. ERC corrective action is
LOA 4 ASAP Policies and Procedures
LOA-15
intended to identify and correct deficiencies by event based corrective action,
e.g., event based corrective type training, and is subject to ERC review to
meet such requirements.

8. After an ASAP report has been closed by the ERC, it may be used by the
Company or the Association for safety purposes.

This MOU will become effective on its date of signing and will remain in effect
for the duration of the Agreement or the ASAP Memorandum of Understanding
between the Company, the Association and the FAA.

MOU-1

EXPRESSJET ARLNES
AVATON SAFETY ACTON PROGRAM (ASAP)
FOR
PLOTS

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDNG

1. GENERAL. ExpressJet Airlines (XJT) is a Title 14 of the Code of Federal
Regulations (14 CFR), air carrier operating under Part 121 engaged in Flag,
Domestic and Supplemental operations within United States, Canada,
Mexico and the Bahamas. XJT operates 160 aircraft, and employs
approximately 1700 pilots. The pilots are represented by the Airline Pilots
Association (ALPA).

2. PURPOSE. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), XJT, and ALPA are
committed to improving flight safety. Each party has determined that safety
would be enhanced if there were a systematic approach for pilots to promptly
identify and correct potential safety hazards. The primary purpose of the XJT
Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) is to identify safety events, and to
implement corrective measures that reduce the opportunity for safety to be
compromised. n order to facilitate flight safety analysis and corrective
action, XJT and the .LPA join the FAA in voluntarily implementing this ASAP
for pilots, which is intended to improve flight safety through pilot self-
reporting, cooperative follow-up, and appropriate corrective action. This
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) describes the provisions of the
program.

3. BENEFTS. The program will foster a voluntary, cooperative, nonpunitive
environment for the open reporting of safety of flight concerns. Through such
reporting, all parties will have access to valuable safety information that may
not otherwise be obtainable. This information will be analyzed in order to
develop corrective action to help solve safety issues and possibly eliminate
deviations from 14 CFR. For a report accepted under this ASAP MOU, the
FAA will use lesser enforcement action or no enforcement action, depending
on whether it is a sole-source report, to address an event involving possible
noncompliance with 14 CFR. This policy is referred to in this MOU as an
"enforcement-related incentive".

4. APPLCABLTY. The XJT ASAP applies to all pilot employees of XJT and
only to events that occur while acting in that capacity. Reports of events
involving apparent noncompliance with 14 CFR that is not inadvertent or that
appears to involve an intentional disregard for safety, criminal activity,
substance abuse, controlled substances, alcohol, or intentional falsification
are excluded from the program.

MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-2
a. Events involving possible noncompliance with 14 CFR by XJT that are
discovered under this program may be handled under the Voluntary
Disclosure Policy, provided that XJT voluntarily reports the possible
noncompliance to the FAA and that the other elements of that policy
are met. (See the current version of AC 00-58, Voluntary Disclosure
Reporting Program and FAA Order 2150.3B, Compliance and
Enforcement Program, Chapter 5).

b. Any modifications of this MOU must be accepted by all parties to the
agreement.

5. PROGRAM DURATON. This is a Continuing program subject to review
every two years by the FAA This ASAP may be terminated at any time for
any reason by XJT, the FAA, or any other party to the MOU. The termination
or modification of a program will not adversely affect anyone who acted in
reliance on the terms of a program in effect at the time of that action; i.e.,
when a program is terminated, all reports and investigations that were in
progress will be handled under the provisions of the program until they are
completed. Failure of any party to follow the terms of the program ordinarily
will result in termination of the program. Failure of XJT to follow through with
corrective action acceptable to the FAA to resolve any safety deficiencies
ordinarily will result in termination of the program.

6. REPORTNG PROCEDURES. When a pilot observes a safety problem or
experiences a safety-related event, he or she should note the problem or
event and describe it in enough detail so that it can be evaluated by a third
party.

a. ASAP Report Form. At an appropriate time during the workday (e.g.
after the trip sequence has ended for the day), the employee should
complete XJT ASAP Form (available via XJT online company intranet)
for each safety problem or event and submit it electronically to the
ASAP Manager. f the Electronic system is not available to the pilot at
the time he or she needs to file a report, the employee may contact
XJT's ASAP hotline and file a report via telephone within 24 hours
after the end of flight sequence for day of occurrence, absent
extraordinary circumstances. Reports filed telephonically within the
prescribed time limit must be followed by a formal report submission
within three calendar days thereafter. f the safety event involves a
deviation from an ATC clearance, the pilot should note the date, time,
place, altitude, flight number, and ATC frequency, along with enough
other information to fully describe the event and any perceived safety
problem.

b. Time Limit. Reports that the ERC determines to be sole-source will be
accepted under the ASAP, regardless of the timeframe within which
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-3
they are submitted, provided they otherwise meet the acceptance
criteria of paragraphs 11a (2) and (3) of this MOU. Reports which the
ERC determines to be non sole-source must meet the same
acceptance criteria, and must also be filed within one of the following
two possible timeframes:

(1) Within 24 hours after the end of flight sequence for day of
occurrence, absent extraordinary circumstances. For example,
if the event occurred at 1400 hours on Monday and a pilot
completes the flight sequence for that day at 1900 hours, the
report should be filed no later than 1900 hours Tuesday. n
order for all employees to be covered under the ASAP for any
apparent noncompliance with 14 CFR resulting from an event,
they must all sign the same report or submit separate signed
reports for the same event.

(2) Within 24 hours of having become aware of possible non-
compliance with 14 CFR provided the following criteria are met:
f a report is submitted later than the time period after the
occurrence of an event stated in paragraph 6b(1) above, the
ERC will review all available information to determine whether
the pilot knew or should have known about the possible
noncompliance with 14 CFR within that time period. f the ERC
determines that the employee did not know or could not have
known about the possible noncompliance with 14 CFR until
informed of it, then the report would be included in ASAP,
provided the report is submitted within 24 hours of having
become aware of possible noncompliance with 14 CFR, and
provided that the report otherwise meets the acceptance
criteria of this MOU. f the employee knew or should have
known about the possible noncompliance with 14 CFR, then
the report will not be included in ASAP.

c. Non-reporting employees covered under this ASAP MOU. f an ASAP
report identifies another covered employee in an event involving
possible noncompliance with 14 CFR and that employee has neither
signed that report nor submitted a separate report, the ERC will
determine on a case-by-case basis whether that employee knew or
reasonably should have known about the possible noncompliance with
14 CFR. f the ERC determines that the employee did not know or
could not have known about the apparent possible noncompliance
with 14 CFR, and the original report otherwise qualifies for inclusion
under ASAP, the ERC will offer the non-reporting employee the
opportunity to submit his/her own ASAP report. f the non-reporting
employee submits h s/her own report within 24 hours of notification
from the ERC, that report will be afforded the same consideration
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-4
under ASAP as that accorded the report from the original reporting
employee, provided all other ASAP acceptance criteria are met.
However, if the non-reporting employee fails to submit his/her own
report within 24 hours of notification from the ERC, the possible
noncompliance with 14 CFR by that employee will be referred to an
appropriate office within the FAA for additional investigation and
reexamination and/or enforcement action, as appropriate, and for
referral to law enforcement authorities, if warranted.

d. Non-reporting employees not covered under this ASAP MOU. f an
ASAP report identifies another XJT employee who is not covered
under this MOU, and the report indicates that employee may have
been involved in possible noncompliance with 14 CFR, the ERC will
determine on a case-by-case basis whether it would be appropriate to
offer that employee the opportunity to submit an ASAP report. f the
ERC determines that it is appropriate, the ERC will provide that
employee with information about ASAP and invite the employee to
submit an ASAP report. f the employee submits an ASAP report
within 24 hours of notification from the ERC, that report will be
covered under ASAP, provided all other ASAP acceptance criteria are
met. f the employee fails to submit an ASAP report within 24 hours of
notification from the ERC, the possible noncompliance with 14 CFR by
that employee will be referred to an appropriate office within the FAA
for additional investigation and reexamination and/or enforcement
action, as appropriate, and for referral to law enforcement agencies, if
warranted.

7. PONTS OF CONTACT. The ERC will be comprised of one representative
from XJT management; one representative from the ALPA; and one FAA
inspector assigned as the ASAP representative from the Certificate Holding
District Office (CHDO) for XJT; or their designated alternates in their
absence. n addition, XJT will designate one person who will serve as the
ASAP manager. The ASAP manager will be responsible for program
administration, and will not serve as a voting member of the ERC.

8. ASAP MANAGER. When the ASAP manager receives the report, he or she
will record the date and time of any event described in the report and the
date and time the report was submitted through the Electronic system. The
ASAP manager will enter the report, along with all supporting data, on the
agenda for the next ERC meeting. Reports should be provided to all ERC
members prior to the scheduled ERC meeting in accordance with guidance
contained in Advisory Circular 120-66, as amended. The ERC will determine
whether a report is submitted in a timely manner or whether extraordinary
circumstances precluded timely submission. To confirm that a report has
been received, the ASAP manager will send a written receipt through the
Electronic system to each employee who submits a report. The receipt will
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-5
confirm whether or not the report was determined to be timely. The ASAP
manager will serve as the focal point for information about, and inquiries
concerning the status of, ASAP reports, and for the coordination and tracking
of ERC recommendations.

9. EVENT REVEW COMMTTEE (ERC). The ERC will review and analyze
reports submitted by the pilots under the program, identify actual or potential
safety problems from the information contained in the reports, and propose
solutions for those problems. The ERC will provide feedback to the
individual who submitted the report.

a. The ASAP manager will maintain a database that continually tracks
each event and the analysis of those events. The ERC will conduct a
12-month review of the ASAP database with emphasis on determining
whether corrective actions have been effective in preventing or
reducing the recurrence of safety-related events of a similar nature.
That review will include recommendations for corrective action for
recurring events indicative of adverse safety trends.

b. This review is in addition to any other reviews conducted by the FAA.
f an application for renewal of the continuing program is anticipated,
the ERC will prepare and submit a report with the certificate holder's
application to the FAA 60 days in advance of the termination date of
the existing continuing program.

10. ERC PROCESS.

a. The ERC will meet as necessary to review and analyze reports that
will be listed on an agenda submitted by the ASAP manager. The
ERC will determine the time and place of the meeting. The ERC will
meet at least twice a month, and the frequency of meetings will be
determined by the number of reports that have accumulated or the
need to acquire time-critical information.

b. The ERC will make its decisions involving ASAP issues based on
consensus. Under the XJT ASAP, consensus of the ERC means the
voluntary agreement of all representatives of the ERC. t does not
require that all members believe that a particular decision or
recommendation is the most desirable solution, but that the result falls
within each member's range of acceptable solutions for that event in
the best interest of safety. n order for this concept to work effectively,
each ERC representative shall be empowered to make decisions
within the context of the ERC discussions on a given report. The ERC
representatives will strive to reach consensus on whether a reported
event is covered under the program, how that event should be
addressed, and the corrective action or any enforcement action that
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-6
should be taken as a result of the report. For example, the ERC
should strive to reach a consensus on the recommended corrective
action to address a safety problem such as an operating deficiency or
airworthiness discrepancy reported under ASAP. The corrective
action process would include working the safety issue(s) with the
appropriate departments at the airline and the FAA that have the
expertise and responsibility for the safety area of concern.
Recognizing that the FAA holds statutory authority to enforce the
necessary rules and regulations, it is understood that the FAA retains
all legal rights and responsibilities contained in Title 49, United States
Code, and FA. Order 2150.3B. n the event there is not a consensus
of the ERC on decisions concerning a report involving an apparent
violation(s), a qualification issue, or medical certification or medical
qualification issue, the FAA ERC representative will decide how the
report should be handled. The FAA will not use the content of the
ASAP report in any subsequent enforcement action, except as
described in paragraph 11a(3) of this MOU.

c. t is anticipated that three types of reports will be submitted to the
ERC: safety-related reports that appear to involve a possible
noncompliance with 14 CFR, reports that are of a general safety
concern, but do not appear to involve possible noncompliance with 14
CFR, and any other reports: e.g., involving catering and passenger
ticketing issues. All safety-related reports shall be fully evaluated and,
to the extent appropriate, investigated.

d. The ERC will forward non-safety reports to the appropriate XJT
department head for his/her information and, if possible, internal (XJT)
resolution. For reports related to flight safety, including reports
involving possible noncompliance with 14 CFR, the ERC will analyze
the report, conduct interviews of reporting pilots, and gather additional
information concerning the matter described in the report, as
necessary.

e. The ERC should also make recommendations to XJT for corrective
action for systemic issues. For example, such corrective action might
include changes to XJT flight operations procedures, aircraft
maintenance procedures, or modifications to the training curriculum
for pilots. Any recommended changes that affect XJT will be
forwarded through the ASAP manager to the appropriate department
head for consideration and comment, and, if appropriate,
implementation. The FAA will work with XJT to develop appropriate
corrective action for systemic issues. The ASAP manager will track
the implementation of the recommended corrective action and report
on associated progress as part of the regular ERC meetings. Any
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-7
recommended corrective action that is not implemented should be
recorded along with the reason it was not implemented.

f. When the ERC becomes aware of an issue involving the medical
qualification or medical certification of an airman, the ERC must
immediately advise the appropriate Regional Flight Surgeon about the
issue. The ERC will work with the Regional Flight Surgeon and the
certificate holder' s medical department or medical consultants to
resolve any medical certification or medical qualification issues or
concerns revealed in an ASAP report, or through the processing of
that report. The FAA ERC member must follow the direction( s) of the
Regional Flight Surgeon with respect to any medical certification or
medical qualification issue(s) revealed in an ASAP report.

g. Any corrective action recommended by the ERC for a report accepted
under ASAP must be completed to the satisfaction of all members of
the ERC, or the ASAP report will be excluded from the program, and
the event will be referred to the FAA for further action, as appropriate.

h. Use of the XJT ASAP Report: Neither the written ASAP report nor the
content of the written ASAP report will be used to initiate or support
any company disciplinary action, or as evidence for any purpose in an
FAA enforcement action, except as provided in paragraph 11a(3) of
this MOU. The FAA may conduct an independent investigation of an
event disclosed in a report.

11. FAA ENFORCEMENT.

a. Criteria for Acceptance. The following criteria must be met in order for
a report to be covered under ASAP:

(1) The employee must submit the report in accordance with the
time limits specified under paragraph 6 of this MOU;

(2) Any possible noncompliance with 14 CFR disclosed in the
report must be inadvertent and must not appear to involve an
intentional disregard for safety; and,

(3) The reported event must not appear to involve criminal activity,
substance abuse, controlled substances, alcohol, or intentional
falsification. Reports involving those events will be referred to
an appropriate FAA office for further handling. The FAA may
use the content of such reports for any enforcement purposes
and will refer such reports to law enforcement agencies, if
appropriate. f upon completion of subsequent investigation it
is determined that the event did not involve any of the
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-8
aforementioned activities, then the report will be referred back
to the ERC for a determination of acceptability under ASAP.
Such referred back reports will be accepted under ASAP
provided they otherwise meet the acceptance criteria contained
herein.

b. Administrative and nformal Action. Notwithstanding the criteria in
Chapter 5 of FAA Order 2150.38, possible noncompliance with 14
CFR disclosed in a non sole-source ASAP report that is covered
under the program and supported by sufficient evidence will be
addressed with administrative action (i.e. a FAA warning Notice or
FAA letter of Correction as appropriate for administrative action) or
informal action (i.e., oral or written counseling). Sufficient evidence
means evidence gathered by an investigation not caused by, or
otherwise predicated on, the individual's safety-related report. There
must be sufficient evidence to prove the violation, other than the
individual's safety-related report. n order to be considered sufficient
evidence under ASAP, the ERC must determine through consensus
that the evidence (other than the individual's safety-related report)
would likely have resulted in the processing of a FAA enforcement
action had the individual's safety-related report not been accepted
under ASAP. f the ERC determines that sufficient evidence supports
a violation for an accepted non-sole-source report, the ERC must
employ the Enforcement Decision Tool (EDT)-ndividual matrix and
associated guidance found in FAA Order 2150.38, Appendix F, to
determine, through ERC consensus under the ASAP process, whether
the accepted non-sole-source ASAP report should be closed with
administrative or informal action (and corrective action if appropriate).
Accepted non sole-source reports for which there is not sufficient
evidence will be closed with a FAA Letter of No Action.

c. Sole-source Reports. For the purposes of FAA action, a report is
considered a sole-source report when all evidence of the event
available to the FAA is discovered by or otherwise predicated on the
report. Apparent violations disclosed in ASAP reports that are
covered under the program and are sole-source reports will be
addressed with an ERC response (no FAA action required). t is
possible to have more than one sole-source report for the same event.

d. Reports nvolving Qualification ssues. XJT ASAP reports covered
under the program that demonstrate a lack, or raise a question of a
lack, of qualification of a certificate holder employee will be addressed
with corrective action, if such action is appropriate and recommended
by the ERC. f an employee fails to complete the corrective action in a
manner satisfactory to all members of the ERC, then his/her report will
be excluded from ASAP. n these cases, the ASAP event will be
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-9
referred to an appropriate office within the FAA for any additional
investigation and reexamination and/or enforcement action, as
appropriate.

e. Excluded from ASAP. Reported events involving possible
noncompliance with 14 CFR that are excluded from ASAP will be
referred by the FAA ERC member to an appropriate office within the
FAA for any additional investigation and re- examination and/or
enforcement action, as appropriate.

f. Corrective Action. Employees initially covered under an ASAP will be
excluded from the program and not entitled to the enforcement-related
incentive if they fail to complete the recommended corrective action in
a manner satisfactory to all members of the ERC. Failure of an
employee to complete the ERC recommended corrective action in a
manner satisfactory to all members of the ERC may result in the
reopening of the case and referral of the matter for appropriate action.

g. Repeated nstances of Noncompliance with 14 CFR. Reports
involving the same or similar possible noncompliance with the
Regulations that were previously addressed with administrative or
informal action under ASAP will be accepted into the program,
provided they otherwise satisfy the acceptance criteria in paragraph 6
above. The ERC will consider on a case-by-case basis the corrective
action that is appropriate for such reports.

h. Closed Cases. A closed ASAP case including a related enforcement
investigative report involving a violation addressed with the
enforcement- related incentive, or for which no action has been taken,
may be reopened and appropriate enforcement action taken if
evidence later is discovered that establishes that the violation should
have been excluded from the program.

12. EMPLOYEE FEEDBACK. The ASAP manager will publish a synopsis of the
reports received from pilots in the Pilot ASAP Newsletter publication monthly.
The synopsis will include enough information so that pilots can identify their
reports. Employee names, however, will not be included in the synopsis.
The outcome of each report will be published. Any employee who submitted
a report may also contact the ASAP manager to inquire about the status of
his/her report. n addition, each employee who submits a report accepted
under ASAP will receive individual feedback on the final disposition of the
report.

13. NFORMATON AND TRANNG. The details of the ASAP will be made
available to all pilots and their supervisors by publication in the XJT
Corporate Policy Manual. Each XJT pilot and manager will receive written
MOU 1 ASAP 3-Party
MOU-10
guidance outlining the details of the program at least two (2) weeks before
the program begins. Each pilot will also receive additional instruction
concerning the program during the next regularly scheduled recurrent
training session, and on a continuing basis in recurrent training thereafter.
All new-hire pilot employees will receive training on the program during initial
training.

14. REVSON CONTROL. Revisions to this MOU shall be documented using
standard revision control methodology.

15. RECORDKEEPNG. All documents and records regarding this program will
be kept by the XJT ASAP manager and made available to the other parties of
this agreement at their request. All records and documents relating to this
program will be appropriately kept in a manner that ensures compliance with
14 CFR and all applicable law (including the Pilot Records mprovement Act).
ALPA and the FAA will maintain whatever records they deem necessary to
meet their needs.

16. SGNATORES All parties to this ASAP are entering into this agreement
voluntarily

3. COMPENSATON

A. Pay Administration

Pay will be administered as provide by Part , Section [3.XX].

B. Calculation of Flight nstructor pay - Upon assignment to the Training
Department and becoming qualified to perform the duties of a Flight
nstructor, his total pay will be the sum of his pay at the applicable longevity
scale, and additional pay, if any. Except as otherwise provided, an instructor
pilot will be paid and credited 6.0 hours or actual block, whichever is greater,
at his applicable hourly rate for each training event he performs.

1. Regular Pay

a. An instructor pilot will be paid the applicable hourly rate for the
highest category he could hold by virtue of his seniority,
notwithstanding any fences that result from the SL process. n
no event will there be more instructor pilots receiving pay for a
category than there are line pilots assigned to such category.

b. f an instructor pilot is not qualified for his permanent position
when he returns to line flying, he will be paid at the hourly rate
for his permanent position during training.

b. Flight nstructor Force Adjustment will be made in inverse
Training Center Seniority order.

2. Prior to the Company exercising the provisions of paragraph C.1.,
above, the Company will solicit Flight nstructor volunteers in the
affected fleet(s) and allow such Flight nstructor(s) in seniority order to
bid a line. The Company may bypass such Flight nstructors to the
extent that special qualification is required. f there are insufficient
volunteers, the Company will require a Flight nstructor(s) to bid a line
in accordance with paragraph C.1., above. Such Flight nstructor(s)
will be selected in inverse seniority order among Flight nstructors who
are part of the fleet(s) that require adjustment.

3. A Flight nstructor required to bid a line in accordance with paragraph
C.1., above, will be assigned to his permanent position, or as follows:

a. A Flight nstructor will not be forced to fly in a domicile different
than his permanent position.

b. A Flight nstructor may volunteer to be assigned to another
domicile as a Captain, but the Company is not required to
approve a request that would result in more than 50% of Flight
nstructors flexed in any one domicile.

c. f the Company assigns a Flight nstructor to fly in the right
seat, he will be paid 2 events as Add Pay for each month of
flying.

(1) No more than 50% of the flexed Flight nstructors may
be assigned to fly in the right seat.

(2) f a Flight nstructor is required to fly in the right seat,
there must be an even distribution of all flexed Flight
Section 25 Scheduling
P-25-8
nstructors across both seats in that fleet in the domicile.

performing training at international locations will not be scheduled for
more than 14 consecutive days away from their Training Center.

5. Duty periods will not be scheduled to exceed 15.0 scheduled hours,
including travel, briefing, training session and debrief; provided,
Section 25 Scheduling
P-25-9
however, that actual duty time may exceed 15.0 hours due to
circumstances beyond the Company's control. n no case will a Flight
nstructor be required to remain on duty in excess of 16 hours. The
instructor may waive his duty period limitation for the purpose of
returning to the training domicile or his residence.

6. For purposes of scheduling duty periods and the publication of

training curricula will be discussed with the Association.
Section 25 Scheduling
P-25-10

10. A Flight nstructor will normally be provided 24 hours free from duty
before beginning a scheduled or assigned work period that begins
during the midnight shift period (i.e., 0001 LT to 0400 LT) when that
Flight nstructor had just worked a shift other than the midnight shift
the previous day. f the 24-hour duty free period cannot be satisfied,
the Flight nstructor will receive 150% pay for the event applied to
minimum pay guarantee.

in the service of
ATLANTC SOUTHEAST ARLNES, NC. and EXPRESSJET ARLNES, NC.,
as represented by the
AR LNE PLOTS ASSOCATON, NTERNATONAL
________________________________________________________________

Process for nterim and Single Preferential Bidding Systems
________________________________________________________________

THS PROCESS FOR NTERM AND SNGLE PREFERENTAL BDDNG
SYSTEMS LETTER OF AGREEMENT ("Agreement") is made and entered into in
accordance with the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, as amended, by and
between EXPRESSJET ARLNES, NC. (the "Company") and the ARLNE PLOTS
in the service of ATLANTC SOUTHEAST ARLNES, NC. ("ASA") and
EXPRESSJET ARLNES, NC. ("XJT"), respectively, as represented by the AR
LNE PLOTS ASSOCATON, NT'L (the "Association" or "ALPA") by and through
the ALPA Master Executive Councils of the Atlantic Southeast Pilots (the "ASA
MEC") and ExpressJet Pilots (the "XJT MEC") (all collectively referred to as the
"Parties").

Purpose of this Agreement: This Agreement sets out the process for maintaining
separate monthly schedule bidding systems for a period of time and later
harmonizing the two separate monthly schedule bidding systems used by the ASA
and XJT pilots over a predetermined period and in the manner specified by this
Agreement. This Agreement contemplates that: (1) pilots operating within the
legacy ASA system (the "LASA System") will continue bidding their monthly work
schedule through the Flightline preferential bidding system ("PBS"); (2) pilots
operating within the legacy XJT system (the "LXJT System") will bid their monthly
work schedule through either a non-PBS process, SmartPref, or Flightline, as
provided for in this Agreement, and; (3) pilots operating in both the LASA and LXJT
Systems will eventually bid their monthly work schedules through the same PBS
based upon the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.

Therefore, the Parties agree as follows:

A. Definitions:

The terms listed below, when used in this Agreement with their initial letters
capitalized, are defined as follows:
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-2

Combined Operations - the operation of ASA and XJT as a single air
carrier under a single operating certificate issued by the Federal Aviation
Administration, after the ratification of the JCBA, the implementation of the
ntegrated Seniority List as provided in the Parties' Transition and Process
Agreement dated January 26, 2011, and the merging of MECs as provided
for in ALPA Merger Policy.

FIightIine - a preferential bidding system owned, as of the date of this
Agreement, by Sabre Holdings Company.

Joint CoIIective Bargaining Agreement ("JCBA") - the single pilot
collective bargaining agreement negotiated between ALPA and Atlantic
Southeast Airlines, ExpressJet Airlines, and SkyWest, nc. and ratified by the
appropriate ALPA, ASA MEC and XJT MEC officials and/or members.

Joint PBS Steering Committee ("JPSC") - a committee consisting of two
(2) legacy ASA and two (2) legacy XJT members that works with
management and the PBS vendors in negotiating, implementing, and
overseeing the Flightline and SmartPref systems and carries out such other
functions as defined in this Agreement.

Legacy ASA ("LASA") System - the flight operations conducted by pilots
on the Atlantic Southeast Airlines, nc., System Seniority List during the
period of Separate Operations. Once the Combined Operations exist, the
Legacy ASA system will then be defined by the base, equipment, and seats
(BES) flown by pilots on the Atlantic Southeast Airlines, nc., System
Seniority List as of the last day of Separate Operations.

Legacy XJT ("LXJT") System - the flight operations conducted by pilots on
the ExpressJet Airlines System Seniority List during the period of Separate
Operations. Once the Combined Operations exist, the Legacy XJT system
will then be defined by the base, equipment, and seats (BES) flown by pilots
on the ExpressJet Airlines System Seniority List as of the last day of
Separate Operations.

Separate Operations - the operations of ASA and XJT prior to the first date
of Combined Operations.

SmartPref - a preferential bidding system owned, as of the date of this
Agreement, by Crewing Solutions.

B. Monthly Bidding Systems Used During Separate Operations:

1. Legacy ASA System: Pilots operating within the LASA System shall
bid their monthly work schedule through Flightline. The Joint
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-3
Negotiating Committee ("JNC"), in consultation with the JPSC, shall
negotiate any system modifications required to Flightline during joint
negotiations.

a. When such negotiations occur, any disagreements amongst
JNC or JPSC members shall first be resolved through
collaborative decision-making, and if a disagreement still exists,
through the ASA CNC or LASA JPSC members casting the
deciding vote.

b. During the period of Separate Operations, LASA pilots
operating any new equipment type or who are awarded or
assigned to a new permanent or temporary crew base shall bid
their monthly schedules through Flightline.

2. Legacy XJT System: Pilots operating within the LXJT System shall
bid a monthly work schedule through a non-PBS process. Nothing
shall prevent the LXJT MEC from continuing to develop and
implement an automated secondary line construction process (for use
with a non-PBS process) utilizing SmartPref.

a. During the period of Separate Operations, the XJT MEC may,
with assistance from the JPSC, continue to explore, develop,
and implement SmartPref as the replacement to the non-PBS
process.

b. The JPSC will participate in a collaborative manner in
negotiating, implementing, and overseeing the SmartPref
system. f a disagreement exists amongst the JPSC members,
they shall first try to resolve the disagreement through
collaborative decision-making, and if a disagreement still exists,
through the LXJT members casting the deciding vote.

c. During the period of separate operations, LXJT pilots operating
any new equipment type or who are awarded or assigned to a
new permanent or temporary crew base shall bid their monthly
schedules through the processes provided in this Section B.2.

C. Monthly Bidding Systems Used After Combined Operations Through the
Duration of the JCBA:

1. Legacy ASA System: Pilots operating within the LASA System shall
bid a monthly work schedule through Flightline unless a successor
system is negotiated and implemented as part of the Section 6
negotiations to amend the JCBA. Any system modifications required
to Flightline after the Combined Operation occurs shall be negotiated
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-4
by the JPSC. f such negotiations materialize, any disagreement
amongst JPSC members shall first be resolved through collaborative
decision-making, and if a disagreement still exists, through the LASA
JPSC members casting the deciding vote.

2. Legacy XJT System: Pilots operating within the LXJT System shall
bid a monthly work schedule through a non-PBS process, which may
be augmented by using SmartPref in the secondary line construction
process. The JPSC may develop SmartPref as a replacement for the
complete non-PBS scheduling process. f a disagreement amongst
JPSC members arises over any SmartPref related issues (including
system modifications after full implementation), it shall first be
resolved through collaborative decision-making, and if a disagreement
still exists, then through the LXJT JPSC members casting the deciding
vote.

a. Pilots operating within the LXJT system shall continue bidding
their monthly schedule as provided in Section B.2. of this
Agreement for a period of up to twenty-four (24) consecutive
months from the JCBA's ratification date.

b. f SmartPref is fully operational ("fully operational" means that
pilots operating within the LXJT System are live bidding their
monthly schedule [which may include the use of a
supplemental process that fills in the PBS bid result] for actual
use through the SmartPref PBS) in twenty-four (24)
consecutive months from the JCBA's ratification date, then
pilots operating in the LXJT system shall continue using that
system for the period provided in Section D.2., below.

c. f SmartPref is not fully operational as defined in Section C.2.b.,
above, then further development of SmartPref will cease and
such pilots will begin using Flightline. This conversion to
Flightline will occur as soon as practicable following the
necessary time for completing any administrative and pilot
educational requirements, which shall not exceed six (6) full bid
periods. The JPSC and Company will agree in advance on the
process for conducting this transition, including the release of
pilot trainers, necessary training materials, the use of practice
bids, and similar topics.

d. Notwithstanding Section C.2., above, the LXJT MEC (or, if
there is a combined MEC, the LXJT members of the JPSC)
may discontinue developing SmartPref within the twenty-four
(24) consecutive month period from the JCBA's ratification
date. Pilots operating within the LXJT System will then begin
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-5
using Flightline for bidding their monthly work schedule as soon
as practicable following the necessary time for completing any
administrative and pilot educational requirements, which shall
not exceed six (6) full bid periods. The JPSC and Company will
agree in advance on the process for conducting this transition,
including the release of pilot trainers, necessary training
materials, the use of practice bids, and similar topics.

3. New Base/Equipment: f the Company acquires a new aircraft type or
opens a new permanent or temporary pilot base after the Combined
Operations, the combined XJT MEC, with guidance from the JPSC,
shall select the PBS for use by the applicable pilots. n doing so, the
combined XJT MEC will factor in:

a. The intent of this Agreement wherein legacy pilots from each
group remains with their respective PBSs;

b. Which pilots are affected based upon where they came from
(including any displacements and downgrades) and the PBS
they previously used;

c. Pilot preferences;

d. The guidance from the JPSC;

e. Whether the equipment, if applicable, are new or replacement
aircraft; and

f. Recommendations from appropriate National Officers and
ALPA staff members.

D. Duration of a Single or Multiple PBSs:

1. Flightline in Use: f all pilots are using Flightline as provided by this
agreement, they will continue using Flightline for the duration of the
JCBA, including any status quo period.

2. Flightline and SmartPref in Use: While the LASA pilots are continuing
to use Flightline, if the LXJT pilots begin bidding their monthly work
schedules through SmartPref as provided in Sections B.2.a. and
B.2.b., above, then the following provisions shall be used to determine
the single PBS system:

a. No less than six (6) months prior to the JCBA's amendable date
or the early open date, whichever is sooner, the JPSC
members will ensure that they are familiar with both PBSs. The
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-6
JPSC will then oversee a comprehensive and balanced
education campaign directed to all pilots explaining the
differences (including advantages and disadvantages, if any)
between the two systems, providing demonstrations and
opportunities for pilot evaluation of each system.

b. Following the education campaign described in Section D.2.a.,
above, the JPSC members will provide the MEC and pilot
group with a balanced report derived from their research of the
two systems.

c. After the publication of the JPSC report in paragraph b., above,
and prior to the amendable date, the Association will hold a
pilot group vote in accordance with ALPA policy to select either
SmartPref or Flightline as the single PBS system.

d. The result of the vote will be implemented on the amendable
date. Pilots who transition from one system to another will be
given the transition period specified in paragraph C.2.c., above.

E. General:

1. Modifications to this Agreement: The President of the Association
shall not sign any amendment, modification, successor document, or
interpretation to this Agreement unless it is:

a. n writing;

b. Approved by the separate MECs or combined MEC, as
applicable, following counsel from the JPSC;

c. Signed by the separate MEC Chairmen or MEC Chairman if the
MECs are combined;

d. Signed by the Company, and;

e. s in accordance with ALPA's Constitution and Bylaws.

2. Dispute Resolution: Any disputes arising out of this Agreement shall
be resolved as follows:

a. Any dispute occurring between the Company and the MECs or
combined MEC, as applicable or solely between the LASA
MEC and LXJT MEC shall first be memorialized in a written
notice between the Company and the MECs or combined MEC,
as applicable, or between the two MECs, with counsel from
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-7
JPSC. A conference shall then occur within fourteen (14)
calendar days of the notice's receipt. Failing to agree on a
solution during the conference, either an MEC or MECs or
Company may then submit the dispute for prompt decision by a
special board of adjustment, sitting only with a single arbitrator,
who will be either Fred Horowitz or ra Jaffe whoever is first
available. The arbitration shall be held on that first available
date and the arbitrator shall issue an opinion and award within
seven (7) days of the hearing, unless otherwise agreed. The
special board of adjustment may choose to rely on
presentations of representatives or counsel in lieu of testimony,
and may require briefs in lieu of summations.

b. The Company and the MECs or combined MEC, as applicable,
may agree to utilize mediation or mediation/arbitration in lieu of
the traditional arbitration model provided in Sections E.2.a.,
above.

c. The jurisdiction of the arbitrator or mediator/arbitrator provided
for in this Section E.2. shall not include selecting a PBS for use
by pilots.

3. Joint PBS Steering Committee ("JPSC"):

a. So long as the ASA MEC and XJT MEC continue as separate
MECs, each of them will select their respective members of the
JPSC and may replace them in accordance with their
respective MEC procedures for replacing members of a
committee. Following the creation of a combined MEC, should
a member of the JPSC become unable or unwilling to continue
in office, the remaining member from his respective pilot group
will select his replacement from that group, and such
replacement will have all the duties, responsibilities, and
authority of his predecessor.

b. f a disagreement amongst the JPSC, other than those
addressed in Sections B.1.a., B.2.b., C.1., and C.2., above,
arises, the JPSC or any member(s) of the JPSC shall advise
the President of the Association (with a copy to the Director of
Representation) of the disagreement. Within twenty-one (21)
calendar days, the President of the Association, or his
designee, will meet with the JPSC in order to assess the
situation and work with the JPSC members to reach an
amicable solution. f a solution is not reached within seven (7)
calendar days from the first day of the President, or his
Appendix 1 Process for nterim and Single PBS
AP-8
designee's meeting with the JPSC, then the following shall
apply:

(1) The JPSC or any member(s) of the JPSC may ask for
expedited mediation/arbitration with Arbitrator ra Jaffe,
which shall take place within thirty (30) calendar days
from the notification to the arbitrator, or as soon
thereafter as the arbitrator's calendar will permit. This
may require the JPSC members to travel to the arbitrator
or work on weekends or scheduled days off, if
necessary.

(2) The JPSC shall represent themselves in such hearings.

(3) The arbitrator's decision shall not violate Section E.2.c.,
above, and shall be in a concise, written format that is
final and binding on the JPSC and MEC or MECs, as
applicable.

c. The JPSC shall discontinue all work and cease operation as
provided for in this Agreement if the LASA and LXJT pilots are
bidding their monthly work schedules through a single PBS as
provided in Section D.1., above. This discontinuance will occur
upon the later of: six (6) months after both the LASA and LXJT
pilots begin live bidding their entire monthly schedules for
actual use through the same PBS or the resolution of any
outstanding disputes as may have been initiated under Section
E.3.b., above.

F. Effective Date and Duration:

This Agreement becomes effective on the date of signing, and remains in
