I already deleted the e-mail explaining SAM and BUV so I can't use that as a reference. From what I understand, SAM is the average BLG for all seats and all aircraft and BUV is the minimum any line value will be, based on a percentage of SAM. So if you you line is less than SAM they will pay you the difference to get your BLG to SAM, regardless of aircraft or seat. Am I correct?

They will buy it up to BUV, not SAM.

For APR, the BUV is SAM minus 3.5.

All these acronyms make me feel just like a FDX guy.

That's what I meant to say. Too many acronyms. I got my SAM and BUV mixed up, but now I am A-OK.

In APR, the BUV is 78:25, any line that pays less than 78:25 will be bought up to that value. So your example line would be bought up 5:25 and your BLG will be 78:25. Same goes for reserves and VTO, no one gets less than the BUV.

The SAM / BUV difference will continue to decrease until the difference is 0 in September.

Anyone know what VTOs will be built to? Average BLG or BUV?

from the Settlement Agreement:

"...The Company shall “buy up” any line that is built below the BUV for that bid period."

so....don't know what they will BUILD the VTOs to, but sounds like to me they will buy them up to BUV if built below it.

I bet they will just fill VTOs that come in under the BUV with R days. Nothing lost by doing it with lots of potential gain.
