Profit Sharing Checks to be Paid March 10th

Last week, American Airlines reported a 2016 pre-tax profit of $5.1 billion and a net profit of $3.2 billion, excluding special charges. Doug Parker announced that this would bring the total profit sharing accrued for 2016 to $314 million.

The Company set aside 5% of pre-tax net income into a pool and then took that dollar figure and divided it by the total eligible earnings of the eligible population. That determined the payout percentage of 3%. If you multiply that payout percentage of 3% by your "eligible earnings" for 2016 you will get your profit sharing payout.

What are eligible and ineligible earnings?

  • All Pay Hours, including Reserve Guarantee Hours
  • Vacation Hours
  • Sick Hours
  • Per Diem
  • Incentive payments (Triple Play)
  • Commissions (AAdvantage Cash and Barclays Crew Cash)
401(k) special election deferral percentages on file with Fidelity as of 4:00 p.m. ET on February 24, 2017 will be applied to your profit sharing payout. Please review your special election deferral percentages prior to February 24, 2017 by logging on to the Fidelity Website at

Go to: Quick Links -- Contribution Amount -- Other Contributions -- Special Election Before Tax

You have the option to contribute from 0.00% to 100% into your 401(k) for Special Elections.

Minimum Domicile Rest

Minimum Domicile Rest is Scheduled for no less than ten (10) hours. It can be reduced down to a minimum of eight (8) hours in Actual Operations. However, if a Flight Attendant has less than ten (10) hours, but more than eight (8) hours, she/he can be removed from their trip without pay protection by calling Scheduling. In order to receive pay protections, she/he must have under eight (8) hours rest in between trips (FAR Illegal).

Crew Scheduling will not give the Flight Attendant the option of being removed if she/he voluntarily schedules less than ten (10) hours in domicile between two pairings. Minimum rest is automatically waived by the Flight Attendant down to eight (8) hours in this situation.

LUS On-Duty Contract Guide (ODCG)

The LUS ODCG represents the current Contract language in place for LUS Flight Attendants, which includes portions still in effect from the 2013 Red Book Contract as well items implemented from the 2014 Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA). The ODCG is available on the APFA website and on your Flight Attendant tablet.


In Strength and Solidarity,
