I hope youíre right. For a few months there were three or four reserves but lately very few or no reserves at all on the 208 schedule. Checked the ATR schedule and not many reserves there either. Been able to work a few PTO weeks here and there because of that. Itís whatís kept me somewhat optimistic about this job. The new CEO is keeping us in the loop, thatís another positive. What has really helped is the increased incentives. Many based pilots work their PTO so the need for floaters is reduced. Ideally I alternate a week on the road followed by a week reserve at home. If that works out Iím happy. No issues coming home on Saturday then either. Donít mind working PTO if there are home reserve weeks in the rotation. If itís four weeks in a row of only having one day off per week the resumeís are going out. That has cost us a bunch of 208 pilots. Do that 6 months in a row and Wheels Upís 8/6 schedule starts looking acceptable. Itís catch 22. With enough pilots on the schedule we have great quality of life. Keeping enough around to make that happen is the issue.

Former MAC employee here. The DO, a true gentleman, who is at the helm, is a true stand up person who has non only the teamís welfare at heart, but the companyís success at his interest too.

A great day was when the former president of MAC, due to his incompetence and ego, was voted off the island.
