Why the spike in delays and cancellations past few days. Much higher than normal and weather is pretty good.

Maybe the 98 hour lines are catching up with them?

Probably when people got home from their back to back xmas 6 day, after two days at home they decided to call in for their back to back new years trips.

Or maybe they really are sick, worst time of year for that, and need to staff reserves accordingly.

Just make sure you call in sick and fatigued on the correct days so you still get your holiday pay!

It's the only way to get time off.

Skywest is worse than Commutair today on the United side. That's not good.

Good, gooooood.

Lets be real, would YOU want to show up for a 6 leg day that pays under 6 hours? At least its nice and easy to call fatigued when every other leg is your home domicile.

Or how about bidding min credit/max days off and getting "awarded" minimum days off and 95+ hours credit?

I don't understand. You mean, it wasn't just delayed 16 hours?

I suppose if its hard weather related, then its uncontrollable so they might not mind?
