Default B757 Open Time Trips Question

Noticed quite a number of these trips today, large portion of them going to XXX ...................... mostly EXTRA's, they are just sitting there, no one has picked them up (?) Nothing on the SKYSNAIL, not even a lousy A.M. outback ...........................

Apparently, most of the trips to XXX for April have been pulled from the Jurassic Jet and given to the 757. I'm on Sub Thursday for one of them (now trip 46/02 on the 75.)

OK, curious if this might be due to the rash of B727 flight revisions taking place ? How do you like flying the B757 ? Anything you don't like about it yet ? I am considering it, in case I get pushed off the SKYSNAIL.

Heard a 757 ND brag today that he had been bumped for 75% of his trips for training and was then able to VOL and DRFT on the same day as all of the trips.

There were trips on Thursday night OT frenzy in the Airbus that were X pairings because the 757 wasn't going to that city. Must have decided to send it to XXX instead.

I fly the 72. I'm on Sub 'cause the 75 took my trip. If you look at a lot of those "Extra" 75 trips in open time, the have a note at the bottom, such as "EQP SWP - WAS B27 TRIP 140/02."

All I have heard is our 8th plane is coming out of the paint shop soon and needs something to do. GTF is trained, has stairs, & mx. The 757 already does the PM flights, the station has been saying that they are getting the 757 on the AM flights starting in April.

Sorry, but I don't think those pairings are some part of a grand conspiracy, just wanted to be sure that those trips were covered by something (727) just in case there were any delays on the new plane. (Not like that has happened yet!)
