Question ups - j/a calls?

2 whale j/a calls in the last ~40 hours or so.. Today's offer was a commercial or j/s to SDF to sit hot-sby on 10th (I think?) Worth 22 hours or so? I'm halfway on the list - are they this short-staffed on other fleets too?

It appears so, from the recent discussion on the B & G.

Wonder why they can't cover the B747 HSTBY with the SDF base ?

The 757 is a mess, especially on the west coast. Extra sections popping up everywhere, LAX hot, JA calls daily. Was told in Philadelphia last week Comcast is upgrading whole system and using us to ship new boxes to customers. Extra sections almost every night out of Philly, hot launches more than normal. Time to hire more NURPs!
