In addition to the minimum weekly rate,employees will be paid a flying allowance of $14.80 per hour. The flying allowance will be paid for scheduled block hours only and will not be paid for any flight where employees have not operated as a cabin crew member.
Example of how the flying allowance works
If a cabin crew member’s average scheduled hours in a roster period are approximately 120 hours,of these 120 hours on average about 90 hours would be block hours,that is,the time that the employee is actually operating as a cabin crew member on a flight. Thus in the roster period,in addition to the employee’s minimum rate of pay,the employee would earn an additional $1332.00 pay per month ($14.80 x 90 block hours).
