Looks nice...except it means breaking in another new jet.
Airlines talk all the time. I highly highly doubt we'd A) buy a c series and B) be another launch customer of anything.

If it helps. Southwest also talked to them.

I doubt as well. It would be funny though. And the c series looks nice

Checkout ezperdiem it is around $30 bucks and takes about 10 minutes. It even lets you see if it is worth doing for the year for free. It also gives you a really handy worksheet of everything else you can deduct (van tips, ffdo expenses, job hunting expenses, etc) If you enter my code I get a reduced rate and you get 10% off C23HA8.

It will also tell you exactly where to enter the numbers in turbotax or whatever software you use.

"talking" can be negotiating... but not with bombardier

We could and most likely are using that as another platform to get better rates on the Ejets should we need any more in 2020 when the next order comes around.

After the last test bed results, I wouldn't expect to do it again... but I'm not the guy who writes the checks either...

We have used Ezperdiem in the past, but needed to enter each layover manually into their programs. Glad to know flica will calculate per diem - for those that itemize on their tax return this is a way to increase your return.
I am still trying to figure out where I can find my past monthly schedules...

As someone has already suggested, did you try crewtrac? Use the crew room computers. They're about the only ones that I've found that work with crewtrac correctly.

Does anyone know if the invites for the Vets in Blue are for every mil person submitting an application or does the HR team send them out targeting specific apps.
