That trip doesn't look like anything I've seen at Delta. But it does look like a trip a friend does on the 320 at JetBlue.
After the Pan Am acquisition, we had flights to the Caribbean late at night like that. I wasnít here but I heard we had a postal contract so we flew some red eyes all over and any pax we could put on added to the profits. The mail was paying for fuel.

Embedded redeyes with a 24 hour "rest" suck. You have to sleep twice in a single "day" and literally adjust your circadian system an entire cycle in a single day which is not biologically possible.

I was thinking the same. At least you have the opportunity to get into a rhythm. It's the flips that kill me. Early AM report + mid trip redeye + early AM report = misery for me.

One of the brutal ones from a couple years ago I remember was:
Day 1: 0700 report DTW-LAX-SLC
Day 2/3: 2200 report SLC-MCO redeye.
Day 4: 0600 report MCO-ATL-FLL-DTW.

Looks fine on paper. 24ish hour layover each time. But swinging my clock twice in 4 days was tough.

I believe AA and UAL can look in their version of DeltaNet and see when the next couple of Indoc classes are scheduled for...wonder why we canít?

Proprietary? Need to know? IT?

It was on one of the skyhub postings by BS. Let me see if I can dig it up.
