That's when the trend started for commutability to take a dump, lost days became regular, average days off lowered and values were below guarantee.

There are three times when our lines historically become difficult - the Spring and Fall schedule changes and the Summer extra flying that stresses staffing. IMO at each of these change points for many years now the schedules have gotten worse and not improved. Cumulative degradation. I say "good" regarding 2015, that "good" was still worse than the years preceding it.

Damn...why do you keep those Bid Packs???

Every year is the same story June and July comes and people "this is the worst I've seen ever".
