3. Mid month the month prior. It closed and We got theJuly results this past Monday mid day (FO). Came out for bidding a week ago today. CA timeline the same but one week earlier each month.
4. Line holder I range from 60-80 block. Credit 85-120. A few months close to 140 credit with 85 block. Reserve was 50-60 block, 90-100 credit. Block is lower as reserves have more deadheads.
ORD is nowhere close to 2-3 months. 9 months is probably more realistic. IAD much longer.

Could you theoretically fly 95 hours a month and take the last 6 weeks off? Just curious if anyone has worked that hard for time off.

Some have tried and few have succeeded. A few stories over the years but I wouldn't try it.

To the OP. Captain bidding opens the first Thursday of the month. Bids close at 1200 on the Monday immediately following. Awards come out some time that same afternoon. FO and FA bids open on the second Thursday of the month and are on the same schedule as the captains just a week later. There is a second round of bidding for a select few who are awarded relief lines which are essentially lines made up of trips dropped for vacation, training, mil leave etc.

Default 26K is yours when?

The bonus of $26,000 paid at completion of IOE. How long do you have to stay for the bonus to stick? If you stay 1 year after IOE, is it yours? 2 years?

At 12 months half is yours. Remaining 50% is prorated per month in months 13-24 so like 4%ish per month. You can also defer it and get 12 even installments of the 26k plus 10k year 2 bonus in months 13-24. So like 3k per month. If you think you may leave early this is the way to go.

I would just take the money in a lump sum, put it into an account and make some more money off of it. That's what I did.
