United April 2024 Reserve Schedule

April I decided to maximize my seniority and bid reserve so that I could get 10 days off for a trip I had planned. It worked! I got all the time off I needed and had a slower month on reserve, mostly working short calls and picking up trips if they looked good.

In total, I had 14 days off and 85 hours of pay.

Hi Hannah, for the days listed as “short calls” - did you end up flying any of those days? Or were you on standby on those days but didn’t fly? Also, any reason you chose to bid “short call” vs. a “longer call” option?
Thanks
