Schedule advance notice

How far in advance after bid for the next months schedule (mainline) will you get that next months schedule?

It varies by airline, but I get my schedule for the following month on the 17th of the month prior. For example, on January 17th I get my February schedule.


…and I get mine on the 18th of the prior month.


Thank you

Beat you both, I get mine on the 13th :wink:


Would you not know if you get a vacation off till that time? So if you wanted to plan a family vacation 6 months out how would that work?


Vacations are bid a year in advance, so there is plenty of time to plan.
