A manager recently claimed that FA's at a certain major had a provision in their CBA limiting the number of otherwise approved Cabin Only JSer's that the Captain could authorize. Rationale was to limit the amount of extra non-rev work for the cabin crew. Anyone ever hear of anything like this?

I never personally experienced this over the year that I Cabin Only jumped with this particular airline.

I know some carriers limit the number of JSer's, even if there are seats available in back, but is this due to FA CBA's?

Maybe AirTran, unless you pay an extra $50 then your welcome...

Can she start #2, to limit the amount of non-announcement work for the flight deck crew?

It's not AirTran, And the additional jumpseat charge is 25$ not 50. We, the pilot group do not agree with the charge. I have not seen a gate agent charge a 2nd jumpseat fee in a while. I am a commuter, I would gladly pay 25$ for a seat on another airline.

I assume this is a company thing? Question is do FA CBA's have anything to say about jumpseaters riding in the back?

No, the FA's have absolutely no say who jumpseats on AirTran.
