April was a nice shift in pace. I was pretty fatigued from the craziness of March, as soon as our schedules were released I posted nearly every trip in Open time. Luckily, I had a four-day and a standup back to back picked up by other crew members. This meant I had an entire 10 day block in the middle of the month off! I browsed open time for some premium pay trips but I decided I needed the rest instead. I spent some much needed time at home and even went on a spontaneous beach vacation. This is one thing I love about this industry- schedule flexibility!
You’ll notice a big red bar labeled DIOE. That means the Captain is a check airman and crew support displaced me from that trip in order to get an IOE completed. The four day got replaced with an easy three day with a free hotel on Tuesday night. I got paid for the higher credit trip, so in this case the 4-day even though I worked the 3-day. The Saturday local wasn’t replaced with anything so I got the day off and got paid the 4 hrs of credit.
In total, I logged 57 hours of block time and credited 69 hours of pay with 16 days off.
TAFB (Time away from base): 268 hours which came out to $536 (non-taxed) per diem.
