Default Fedex ANC DP error?

Has anyone seen communication from the SIG regarding ANC pairing 21? It's listed as a DP in the SIG notes and occurs twice in the month (16 and 23 Jan).

Somehow the second one made it into a regular line for the Captains and got awarded. I thought that wasn't supposed to happen. I don't know what kind of recourse the poor guy has but that's just not right.

Of all the guys, you'd be the last one I'd expect to need a steer to anything DP related. I figured you'd have the SIG notes framed on your wall each month. Fixed it though.

Normal line but no FO awarded said line....weird. Same guy who jumped on a draft a few months back that I and several friends were too busy to accept....double weird. Some times co-inky-dinks just happen I guess?

That line was not in the FO bidpack. I think, in this case, it was a simple oversight on the part of the SIG and the trip got included in a regular line accidentally.

I can't say for sure if I would have caught it either but I guess it's something we should all be cross-checking to back up the SIG.

Email the SIG --- especially those who build your ANC lines & bidpack

Yes --- they make mistakes --- but I have found they are very appreciative of any/all feedback, quick to respond and readily admit when they make errors

Solid group of volunteers!

Let's all continue to stay vigilant...and communicate & educate!

After getting some more wisdom from a wise colleague, I'm hoping the SIG contacts the Captain and notifies him of their oversight and the fact the line is a DP

Hopefully, the FO who gets it off Reserve notifies the Capt as well

Then both crew members can provide accurate reports to mgt and the union on how fatiguing the pairing is --- those reports get attention and provide important documentation on known threats to safety

Keep moving the mission --- safely!

I thought when a trip is awarded in error, the pilot is removed and paid for the trip.
