Mr. Kevin Lum, President

UAL/AFA Master Executive Council

Association of Flight Attendants

6400 Shafer Court, Suite 250

Rosemont, IL 60018


Dear Mr. Lum:

In the application of Section 12.B.1.b. of the Flight Attendant Agreement the parties agree that should the sixty percent (60%) Flight Attendant block hour distribution not be met, the Company is obligated to make the adjustment to meet the sixty percent (60%) requirement not later than the two schedule months following the month in which the sixty percent (60%) distribution is not met.

Notwithstanding the terms of the Flight Attendant Agreement the parties agree that there may be instances when it is beneficial to both parties to defer the adjustment one additional schedule month. Such determination shall be made based on the circumstances that exist at the time and shall not prejudice any determinations made based on any future circumstances.
