17-04 will shortly follow with more 200 slots. Similar time between 17-01 and 17-02 very quick

The boat full of rotten tuna is about to pull into port it would seem. Hated to see it happen to the Comair guys, and hate to see it now happening with ASA.

They just needed a vacancy to keep upgrades going and have a place to put new hires, they were running out of places from 17-02 and weren't ready to make the next vacancy they wanted. So we get 17-03.

This is the $23000 question, why?

Default PBS question

I bid top 10 FO in base. The mock just came up and I wanted a stretch of days off and bid accordingly, ascribing 5x the points towards getting that stretch off that I wanted than anything else. but they put a trip RIGHT in the period that I asked for off!! What gives? Did I do this right??!?

If you desired max line range that may be the cause as it only respects your preferences if it gets the hours needed. Also a PERIOD of dates off only scores once (if you value it at 100 points that's all it scores total). A STRING of dates off would score for each day (valued at 100 points would score 100 per day). Do a little math with your other preferences to check that they aren't adding up or subtracting more points than your day off request. Best thing to do would be to call the PBS help people as they will look at your bid and be able to see what is actually going on.

Or it's the August schedule boning... September is the month of drawdown where you should get anything you need... August is tough because it's traditionally the thinnest staffed month of the year. You for sure need to not bid max line, and also give up any other prefs over getting those days off... may even take bidding CDO or Reserve. Yes at this company it may take that for August....
