Default Junior Assignment

I have seen the phrase junior assignment on a couple of the airline information pages. What does it mean?

It means that the company ran out of reserves to use and now they have to "ask" a line holder to come in on his day off. This wonderful gift is suppose to go to he most junior line holder that is available on that day.

Actually, at our company, they don't "ask". If they get you on your "primary" phone, YOU WILL WORK. Somewhat fortunately, at my company they pay you 200% of your pay, and they can only do it a certain amount a year/ month. I forget what it is, but NOT MUCH!
Doesn't happen much also, because usually when they see a trip that doesn't have coverage coming up, or whatever, they put it in open time, and whoever wants it, can work it for 150% Pay.

Good point shortbus, this is yet another example of the truism, "base pay scales are not the only way to evaluate a contract".
