K. Special Pay Days. When the Pilot is scheduled to work on a Special Pay Day
designated in this Agreement, the Pilot shall be compensated at a rate of two (2) times the Pilot’s normal base rate of compensation for the hours actually worked on that day or four (4) hours credit, whichever is greater. The days on which the Pilot will receive this benefit are January 1, December 25, and the fourth Thursday in November.

117 was created to ensure a rested crew, not QOL. Our QOL will have to come from a CBA.

I was flying with a Captain, when I was a still a newhire and at my current regional, and almost had a pilot incapacitated after the stitches he got from laughing so hard, after I had asked if we got extra/premium pay on holidays. Glad to know it exists for the guys up front and I wasn't completely wrong at thinking it a good notion.

Dang. You don't run into hours or FDP limits????
If only they could get us poolies on the line. I don't wish 10 days in a row on anyone.

It's not a staffing issue.

What a lie! This is the furthest thing from the truth! I looked through every PDF file for each base and see some tough schedules, but you are totally exaggerating this!
