View Full Version : Deadhead LOA ?

Does the new DH LOA allow a DH at the start of a trip to be changed? For example, I DH from ORD to DFW to start my next trip. Instead of commuting to ORD to then DH to DFW, can I A pass myself straight to DFW from home? Or can I only D2 myself and call for a sign in leg, like in the past? I know it allows you to change your DH at the end of a trip, but not sure about the beginning. I'm not at a computer, so I can't look at the contract right now.

Near as I can tell from reading Neider's 24MAR email on it, "deadhead to first live leg from commuter city" is A1D. I'd say call crew scheduling and have them change it up.

Iíve done this 4-5 times already. Call the next day desk the day before and ask them to change it. Give them the info for the flight you want. Takes a minute to make the change.
