I just took the scheduling survey put out by the union and it was extremely disappointing. Here was a chance to get some constructive feedback on what we want in our pairings and lines and the questions were so basic and few that I feel the survey was completely pointless.

I thought it was a mistake when it ended so soon. The only things they asked were if you like 4-day trips or not and if you'd rather have similar start times each trip.


I was hoping for a part where I could express my desire for max credit per day and max days off.

That is exactly what I thought and want. Even the question about what length trip I want did not even remotely convey what I want to say...

Yes I want 3 and 4 day trips so I selected that, but I don't want a 19 hour 4 day, or an 11 hour 3 day... I want 16.5 hour 2days, 20 hour 3days, or 25 hour 4days.. I want max days off and max productivity.

EDIT/PS - After receiving the email about the trade desk being set up to facilitate trades that are denied by Crew Access I noticed there was no contact info for the trade desk. I emailed a few people inquiring and each one said they would look into it and get back to me, but so far it's been over a week and have not heard a reply... does anyone have an email address for the trade desk or where we are supposed to submit these trade requests?

Thereís a trade inquiry button under the schedule tab on the pilot web page. Itís been there since before the trade desk opened, but perhaps now it goes straight to the trade desk instead of just the general inbox of scheduling? Hard telliní. I got a pretty quick response at any rate.
