Default Monthly days on

Cujo 665 I was wondering, do FO's normally work their full 16 days on? Also, are their lines one can bid to get your days on in one block, or is it typically broken up?

how many legs on how many days are those 50-60 hours at Atlas?

The other guy said it right

Atlas - make more but work more
Omni - make less but work less

both are very good jobs. Id probably give the nod to Atlas for varying fleet opportunities, trip variety, company size.
Omni is a small company with 15 planes and 370 pilots.
Atlas is about 100 planes and 2200 or more pilots
I am not a 76 driver, I just know the 76 is a great QOL bird here at Atlas where as the 777 and 74 are the work horses. Usually a 1 leg a day for the Amazon flying and the AMC flying is even more chill.

currently most are, and the company is even ponying up to use some that 17th day that is at their option, it just goes above guarantee.
Captains are definately going to be out the full 16 during the busy summer months.

A couple of weeks. One of the nice things about Omni is it still operates like a small family business. So things take a bit longer to do. Trust me on the line this is a nice thing. But theyll get to it. Especially if you can get your internal rec to pass your resume along.

Amazon lines are getting more 2 leg days, but the 767 is still the QOL airplane here.
