Yes, in context that's a better choice of word.

Your gonna get what you fly . FLICA / rainmaker credit is off all the time and takes sometimes a week to adjust , you can leave comments on rainmaker to confirm it , takes a day or two for a response .

But you will get kid 70 if that is what the flying , regardless of what you are awarded . You don't get 5 hours free .

Each month is its own set. You would have to drop one then pick up the other.

Probably because you started as a reserve. That would trigger the min line guarantee of 75. You're a "lineholder" as far as FLiCA is concerned as in you can drop/swap trips, but you're only going to get paid what you fly.

You're going to get pay whatever the line is worth. You can drop down to 70hrs. The only difference between a regular and hybrid line, is that the reserve days on a hybrid line are short call only. Everything else is exactly the same. What they mean that you're considered a line holder, is that you can swap,drop,trade,etc just like a line holder on flica.

Current block is 930. End of march I'll have 935 according to what I fly now. Will nevtech give me a line for April. Last April I blocked 78 hours.

I don't VDA/RSA/rtf.

4 legs a day day trips no soft time.

The buffer isn't the issue. It's 997, my question is about how smart is PBS...

I would basically need to fly 140+ hours in April to block out... but will it know that? Or just say. You have 65 hours. We can't give you a line?

I'd imagine it depends on the bid divisors. If you were close by 75 hours and the low divisor was 76 then it couldn't award you a legal line. But I really have no idea.
