You have to PTO/UTO to drop from 3>2.

Sometimes during a bid award they will give you a 1 or 2 day block at the beginning/end of the month, but that's the only time you see it.

Thank you. This makes me hope even more we get 6/1 in November. That would give more flexibility.

Default PTO Question

Example:

If I PTO a three day trip, from Friday through Sunday, and then pick up a two day trip covering the same Saturday and Sunday, will I be charged any PTO?

I know Ive only been here a little over six months, but in my experience, long call reserve only seems to exist as a figment of the imagination of a chief pilot trying to recruit people to come here. Even if they do give it, it is immediately taken away 2 hours after the noon posting of long call or they call you in the middle of the night to wake you up to still tell you your required to be there at 2 pm the next day. A few months ago, they posted it and then at 2 pm they gave me a 10 am short call start time... That makes it quite challenging to plan your commute.

Easy big fella. On the BOS E190 side; June-August I got zero Long Call. In September I have already gotten it several times.

Anyone got an answer for GuradBummer?

Yes you'll be charged for PTO. I'd recommend UTO the trip and then pick up the 2-day

First off, the past 6mo are tough times to get LCR. We are just now getting to the prime LCR time of year.

What did it say on the DRO for your assignment? If you were given LCR on the DRO and then they converted you to a 10am SCL then that isn't a legal assignment. LCR typically runs 0001-2359 and the earliest they could convert you is 1400 SCL.

Also, this is the way 5-days of reserve will look in your Flica schedule:

Starts out as
RSV
RSV
RSV
RSV
RSV

Then between 0700-1200 the day prior to starting your block it turns into:
LCR
LCR
LCR
SCR
SCR

This is when guys get pumped and think they will be on LCR for 3days, but this is just a placeholder (See FSM section D.6)

Then the DRO comes out after 12noon and it looks like:

SCL
LCR
LCR
SCR
SCR

And guys notice it at some point later in the day and get mad.

Always reference the DRO when checking your assignment for the next day. Flica doesn't mean anything, and the DRO is the controlling document.

DRO (use jetblue\username):

I didn't think you would be restricted, but I bid reserve all the time so I don't run into this very often. Some other blue dudes will hopefully fill in the gaps.

Default Leave JetBlue for a legacy carrier?

If you were a middle aged pilot new hire at JetBlue (in year 1-2) and were offered a position at a carrier like United, would you stay or would you go? If you would stay at Blue - what would make you stay? If you chose to go - what would make you go?
