Default FedEx- trip drop

Is anyone having any luck dropping trips? I keep getting "Insufficient Reserves" and I am hearing the same from other pilots. For the 767, there are only a couple trips in open time for the entire month, but there are a ton of hotel standby and airport standby so it seems like that is preventing any trip drops. I would imagine it will be the same for December. Is it the same for all seats and airplanes?

Same for me (MD FO). Was able to finally drop the trip 24 hours prior, so keep trying

What's the open time to max open ratio?

I haven't been trying, but I'll bet this time of year they'll put in a lot if ghost standby's to prevent trip drops and protect reserve numbers. It'll continue through peak and probably until manning is better allocated also.

Dropped a 2 day trip on the 18th. R seat Bus. Took about 7 hours to get the notification. There are only 4 trips in OT.

Unless our NC of the future determines that just like Real Time Trip Trading this time around, even though overwhelmingly sought after by the vast majority of our crew force via polling, is actually not that important to us after all...

Maybe by 2023 I'll be jaded enough to vote in favor of anything that has 3% attached to it.

I'll settle for 2%



Oh wait, I'll be retired by then

I have plenty of my own, thanks. You may have forgotten how vigorously I opposed that misadventure.

Not at all. I admired your arguments then.
