Month to month transition pairings are a special case.
I don't think they allow those to be swapped until the january schedules are done because legally they can modify that trip. Not sure though.
Check FYI,

They approved the swap on the first PCS run for my trip over New Years Eve.

okay pg, i'd quote but its hard on iphone, but you had me scratching my head as you can google all the ins and outs of cashing out a 401K. But as far as cashing out a current employer one I've never thought of but I'll take your word for it that you cannot... or can you if you claim a hardship?

More info and pictures on the Qantas flight that had the engine go, from a technical perspective:

The Anatomy of the Airbus A380 QF32 near disaster – Plane Talking

And when they are talking about "droop nose" - that must be Airbus speak for Leading Edge Slats.

Default Retirement accounts

Now this is nothing new, but I am new so I just looked at it for the first time yesterday, and am wondering if I am interpreting this correctly. We can take a loan out from our retirement savings with a standard amoritization and pay interest, but we are paying the interest back to ourselves so we aren't really being charged anything? And it also said no tax penalties. If that is right, that's awesome. Could you then use that for part of a downpayment for a home and essentially not pay interest on that portion? Maybe I am completely misinterpreting this.

See, you guys are really nice. There weren't too many pool houses or bowling alleys where you grew up, were there?

Carl is so prejudiced. Sheeesh.
Darn, I let out the secret "Super Premium Wide Body New Years Eve Party" at Carl's house.

I cashed it out. Very easy. Very quick. I'd never do it on a 401K worth more than, well, $2500.

My brother used to have one of those six figure salaries in pharma (oxycotin), that went to 0 three or four years back. He was underemployed for a while and eventually had to cash out of a 401K to save the house and never paid taxes on it because of all the other losses.

It's a 10% penalty and they withhold taxes on it.
