June was a pretty inefficient month. Credited 101 hrs of pay and flew 81 hours of block with 9 days off. Trips company wide have been less efficient this summer, lower block/credit per days away. Flight Ops got mixed pairings approved to help fix that problem. That means in a 4 day trip you can fly a mix of carriers and airframes. Day 1-3 for DL on the 900 and day 4 AA on the 700. Not much changes for us in the flight deck, more of a hassle for the Flight attendants having uniform changes.
I am feeling pretty exhausted. July I was able to swap a lot of my trips with open time stuff. Now I’m at 11 days off with about 92 hours. Just got Aug bid with CQ and a week of vacation and I’ll get a huge break to catch up a bit. 18 days off (including my VAC) 40 hours of flying plus 4 days in DEN for CQ.
@scottman Yes! That’s the same on the CRJ side as well. 12 hrs is the new average overnight with many closer to min rest.
Most of those are labels for the scheduling department. The TTA and AWD designate whether you were originally awarded that trip from your bid where a TTA was a trip you traded in open time or with another pilot.
DIOE, is “displaced IOE”. Meaning the training department took your trip to give to a new pilot IOE. (You’re pay protected for it)
LCA is actually a title, Line check airman. It’s a captain that can do new pilot IOE trips.
NJM is no junior man. That is a label for crew support that I wasn’t legal to be “junior manned” in to a trip.
