114192 / (210.17 * 1.25) = 435

435 / 12 = 36

82 + 36 = 118


How can you do this on reserve, every month? You're crediting 118+ hours a month on reserve, every month?

Does every 6 year reserve captain have this opportunity? Thanks.

Reserve captains are easily breaking 90. Also add in our payouts and it can make sense.

i actually just heard a story from a UA FA recently of a bunch of United FA's getting fired for doing the same thing. Be careful!

My understanding is that they are "conducting" an investigation. Fingers crossed

If you can hold one of those 15 on / 15 off reserve lines you can get an extra 40 hours of credit pretty easily now, add a premium trip or two. Lots of open time. So itís plausible and happening.

I had a couple 100 hour credit months when we first signed contract. But now Iím flying almost every reserve day so Iím too tarred to pick up anymore. Jr CA here.

Thanks for the clarification. No doubt about it, this is a valid career move with many unique advantages.
