Default Share Your Typical AA Schedule

I saw a thread like this on another forum and thought it would be useful here.

Please include aircraft, CA/FO, base, relative seniority and any inputs/thoughts if you donít mind. Cheers!

PHX/320/FO
Only 4 FOs junior to me
Lineholder
Four day trips over weekends starting with a red eye and ending late at night on last day.

Very senior base but bottom 10% has very junior FOs because 3-4 classes in a row had several PHX offerings at indoc. Movement was frozen all summer but is picking up next month with several junior FOs coming in.

All subject to change, all pilots are essentially on reserve.

Doesnt what you are awarded, you just trip trade to make it what you want unless you have a flight over a holiday then you are stuck with working that day

Clt. 4 or 5 day trips. All over weekends. All ending with a red eye. Unable to swap for anything else. Worse than any regional trip Iíve had. But I make 2x the money.

The schedule itself is not the issue for me. The (in) ability to drop with all this red, redder crap is what bothers me.

There are 15,000 different possible schedules, but here you go.

LAX 320 FO

Usually a combination of 4 days and 3 days, occasionally a 5 day, by choice. I like to start on Monday or Tuesday afternoon, done Thursday evening. Iíll start with a red eye sometimes because you get nearly all of the first day off. Iím pretty happy with my schedule and PBS but am about 35%. Iíd be 65% in CLT and probably not as happy for what itís worth.

Tons of premium offered lately too. I was offered 3 trips last night and 4 this morning. If you live in LA, you can easily make a lot of money. I commute, so I usually can only take a premium that starts with a dead head.
