You might be confusing it with 23.I.10.c.2 which says "multiple rotations totaling no more than 4 consecutive days" or 23.I.10.c.3 which says "no more than four consecutive reserve on-call days"
I was referring to how many days are blocked for WS pickup. You get 4 APD days, but yes they can drop more than 4 days.

I'm lost.....not be the first time my reading comprehension has failed me.

PWA says an APD can drop a single rotation of any length....in this case it was a five day trip. Are you saying that even though the OP submitted his APD in icrew for all 5 days, the APD will only show on 4 and he could pick something up on the 5th day?

Correct. He should have put the APD for a single day during the trip that he didn't want to pick up. The entire trip is dropped and the day of the APD request is now blocked. He is free to WS on any other day.

Allow me to backpedal, I read “APD” and in my mind conflated it with “IVD”s (my usual way of dropping trips). My response is wrong. The APD blocks on the day(s) you specify in the PCS request.

You only get one APD per employment year, it can drop a single trip of any length, or drop multiple trips not to exceed 4 consecutive days. Or you can drop reserve days as outlined in 23.I.10.

Sorry to confuse the OP and the rest of you.

I’m aware that it was he *should* have done, but I’m confused wrt Planetrain’s comment of only getting 4 APD days when the OP dropped a 5 day trip.
