Default Those poor Airbus pilots...

All the T-tail drivers are shedding a tear for the suffering of the 320 crews. Saw this nugget in the crew resources update for the September bid period:

With 8.5 hours of block in 3 different airplanes. And probably a landing in your WOCL. Into a 12 hour layover.
