Unhappy Wolf pack continues with impunity

It must be nice to get a double-deadhead and 4 days of hotel standby in CGN. The trip NEVER appeared in open time. ALL three crew members who picked up the trip are wolf pack members. I'm no mathematician but I believe the odds of that happening ethically and honestly are nearly mathematically impossible. So, how does that happen when a hundred other folks are watching open time at the same time? And yet, this shady behavior continues unabated.

How are these guys able to drop their trips in Jan. already? I didn't look at the F/O and RFO but the Capt. had trips awarded on his Jan. line that are now open.

That trip hit open time on Dec 13. Since the bid hadn't closed yet, the awarded trips would have been dropped due to carry in conflict.

I get it dropping into opentime, however whatever time it did, they always have the best "luck" at picking up Gucci trips. I call total BS!

Default NO ****!

This guy (F/O) has been getting these good deals for years. I guarantee you he has an in with the schedulers. Imagine that...........he also blocks his calendar. What a POS! Hey Bill...........why don't you do something about this?

In my senior f/o days I once flew with a Capt. (who lived in MEM) that admitted he would give schedulers gifts (cash?) for each DFT trip he received.

Is this any different?
