There is supposed to be 3 disputed pairings in MEM MD Open Time but I guess they were requested by people during the Secondary Line build. What's up with that?!?!

101/05MAR (Right seat only)
126/06MAR (Both seats)
136/20MAR (Both seats)

Real cool

If anybody wonders why the SIG can't get any traction on disputed pairings, your answer is above. I'm sure all the pilots who requested these trips will tell you they didn't know. That excuse is simply not good enough. Very frustrating to say the least.

Default 22 years this is the first time...

That I've seen this paltry amount of trips at the start of open time availability. And one of those is a DP.

Whatever happened to the 2% of open trips being retained to "prime the pump"?

I put a synopsis on another thread about an ANC DP and what the company has to jump through when we don't fly these pairings. I'm continually amazed at the general apathy or uninformed guys we have flying here. Just unreal!

Is there some requirement that the company leaves in 2%?
Or that just precedent?
