One Thanksgiving morning a few years ago I was sitting at home on R-1 (home reserve) and I get a call from scheduling. "Hey we got a trip for you the grizzled scheduler says."

Now, as a junior guy sitting reserve I'd already done my homework. "Well Mr. Scheduler, their's another FO who's got the SAME reserve days as I do, and he's junior to me! Surely you can use him."

"Nope, you live closer and the plane ticket to fly him to the jet will cost more"...........

Make sure you do your homework before coming here. This is one of numerous stories I can share, and I'm sure there's thousands more.
