With our line bidding and vacation overlap, you can easily turn one vacation week into 3 weeks off if you so choose.

Correct. This is my second year and had a 10 day block due to the prorated amount from last year. Just got my line for next month and with vacation drop I have 25 days off, 22 consecutive with a credit of 92 TFP for the month. Thats being a junior guy, just think what I could do as a senior FO.

I managed this year for the first time. Took a three way trade to make it happen though.

Trying to strategize now for 2019 to figure out what the most lucrative weeks might be for trading currency. (sigh)
