Default Open time

Where the heck did all of this daily open time come from?

I would suspect the tons of cancellation of Dec overnights going on right now is dropping a bunch of scraps into open. It's like March all over again.

I think itís all last minute adds by United, most of them are overnight turns. When they first dropped they had no crew attached. In March it was a different scenario as peopleís trips were being modified with large sits and flights disappearing, thatís not happening now.

I spoke too soon earlier. Stuff is getting canceled on my pairings. Very large sits. 8 hours in one case. Flights are disappearing again. I wonder if scheduling will inform us of the changes to our pairings. I donít think theyíve notified me of a change to a pairing once this year.

Thats when the day room and duty rig provisions in the contract pay their weight in gold! Just like March/April.

This is correct. Good source rumor óó about 400 hours taken away/cancelled by UAL for December for AirWis.

Are the flights being canceled due to low demand or because AWALLC canít staff them? Neither reason is good but there would be no excuse for not having the staffing.

United is reducing their schedules for December and January due to lack of demand. This is across their entire network.
