Are there five day trips or did you pick up something on that middle trip to get more flying?

That is two trips back to back. The 10th-12th was a trip and the 13th-15th was another trip.

Chris,

You may have mentioned before in a thread post, which aircraft are you flying currently? Sorry for the redundant question…

No worries. The Airbus 319 and 320.

That’s a great schedule! I assume it is not typical to have this many days off, especially for a new first officer?

We are guaranteed twelve days off per month, regardless of how long you have been at the airline. I would say that I usually average 14-15 days off per month. As a new hire, it was 12 for quite some time.
