No, that is not the only thing with PBS. Right now Alaska pilots can, through trading, have single vacation days placed on their schedule BEFORE bidding for a month. If those days conflict with trips on the pre-built lines (which pilots often intentionally bid) then they can use just a single vacation day to get a week off. Sure, they need to get their schedules back up to min guarantee, but it's a very effective way to get the time off they need. With PBS, the company will want to have those vacation days as pre-assignments, then stick day trips around those vacation days. That's a major loss and needs to be addressed.
