Would be commuting into the clock which would be helpful, plus I know at least the Jumpseat should most likely be available. Would also most likely live 20 minutes from LHR and would have get the global security pass to make life easier through customs (both UK and US).

Appreciate any information that anyone can share. Bids are final on the 13th so I need to figure this one out quick. Thanks

We have several CAL pilots who live in Europe and commute to EWR. One of the parts of the CAL contract that worked well for them was the DH/IRO pairings we have. They start their trip off with a DH(they are already in Europe) and have an extra 24 hours minimum off at home then they are the IRO Westbound. A couple live in Poland, one in Oslo, a couple in AMS and yes, I believe we have a Londoner in the ranks as well. The guys from Poland actually non-rev down to the city they need to be at early the morning of the IRO flight Westbound. They are able to then fly a trip from EWR within 24 hours after landing(usually fly another Europe trip)then commute home. Total work block of 4 days with 6 days credited due to the DH.
