You never see long call except on relief lines, which vary greatly month to month as far as seniority.

Are the relief lines only built when scheduling has everything else covered?

Theyre built and bid on the week after regular lines are awarded.

4 months ago when I was on reserve, every trip I was given over 2 months of reserve was at least 10 to 12 hours notice from crew scheduling. Never had a short call.

I realize that, just making the point I never had a 2-hour call-out (real 'short call')

1-2 months on average. Saw some guys go straight to line holder in CAE and MKE lately. Maybe a bit longer in ORD.
