I am curious as to what I have written which is hard to understand, or what part makes me a retard? I have been perfectly honest and transparent. I think if any of you are honest with yourselves you would have to admit you feel the same way. I know I canít think of one of my fellow Alaska pilots which have not voiced the exact same sentiments that I have written here. This is not radical thought or feelings by any stretch. The truth is, most people can not handle the truth.

Honesty doesnít mean you are correct. It just means you believe the BS that you type.

I agree. Itís how I, and many Alaska pilots feel, itís how we perceive. I am sure through your glasses you see a totally different scene and almost the opposite color.

The way AS does vacation drops isn't ideal (thanks Kasher) but being able to split my vacation days up and shotgun them out has been a huge gain. I get vacation weeks all spring and summer long. Last question, have you noticed your QOL change/decline since AS took charge and if so, do you see that no matter the system, management will squeeze every drop out of you? So fancy updated version, meet old antiquated version, you’ve been optimized. Either way you gotta find the loopholes and make it work for you. I contend that even if you want PBS, tell management hell no until the pot gets much, much, bigger.
With 20 days OFF? 70 hours-ish.. But get this... On the other end of the spectrum...... I'll see your 80 hours and raise you 15.5 hrs (95.5 hrs) for your same 16 days off!! (that's my schedule for this month,May)

If you're doing it for the kids n sh!t, Pref Bid is the way to go!

That's the beauty of Pref Bid.. Whatever you desire, you can customize to your hearts content! On any given month I can bid for a stretch of days OFF that effectively is like.. you guessed it! VACATION!! I can do that 12 times a year!

Put a 8 or 10 days OFF stretch at the end of of one month together with another stretch of 8 or 10 days OFF at the beginning of the next month and you can get 16 to 20 Days OFF while still crediting high 80s in both months... I could do that 5 or 6 times a year.... And I still haven't even touched my real Vacation days....

Here's the take away.... Applied evenly to both, whether the Scheduling Rules are great or terrible, you will still have better overall flexibility and control of the schedule you will be awarded each month using Pref Bid as opposed to Line Bidding.

I canít speak for the rest of exVX pilot group but most of yíall on this forum get butt hurt too easily. Instead of engaging in constructive discussion, VXers on here are quick to turn the tables and resort to name calling, a true sign of weakness and lack of intellect. Take for example OTZeagleís comments which results in juvenile name calling by exVXers while ganging up on him/her. I donít know this guy and obviously heís very vocal on here but at least he/she has the balls to state his/her mind.

This horse has been beaten, butchered, processed and served to pets all throughout the world!
Hey bubba, until our pairings are fixed and scheduling language is gutted no PBS program will give you what yíall had under Branson. Welcome to 12-15 days off with mostly non commutable pairings, especially with more west coast flying on the bus side. Tough pill to swallow but this is reality for now and whatís to come. PBS is 💀.

I think if you took the time to read my posts on that issue, you'd realize that you're preaching to the choir. Lol

The SLI reach by the VX side has put such a sour taste in my mouth that I will vote for nothing that any of you want. In fact, if I knew terrible schedules would cause 80 percent of you to leave and seek employment elsewhere, I would gladly do all I could to secure this outcome. Do I wish any of you ill, absolutely not. I hope those 80% go to Dal, Amr, Uua, and are quickly widebody captains and you all have great careers. I hope our negotiations drag into 2023. I wish for very very few computable lines. I donít think you even begin to understand the divide that is quickly growing at this company. It will get very very bad in my estimation. So here is to Allbiz being a 787 CA very soon at Uua!
Why do you guys feed this troll that created his account less than 15 days ago with the specific plan to create decent amongst the ALA5KA pilot group. If you ignore him he has no power. Don't engage the trolls. Come on we are better than this.
