So is it possible to sit reserve out of base then? I do it all the time when on long call with NW. It's not a problem, and NW schedulers usually give me 18+ hours of notice. I just don't see how it would be difficult to sit long call at home.

That depends on how far away you live from base and what kind of commuting options you have. Usually the schedulers will give you more than 12 hours notice, at least I seem to get it, but you can get a few right at 12.

If you live in major metropolitan cities that has trans-con flights, it's possible to sit long-call comfortably at home. But let's say you sit NYC long call during winter, and you live in Eugene, CA. Scheduler calls you at 9pm pacific time for a 11am next day show at JFK. Is it doable, yes, but not dependable. Unless you've commuted to JFK/LGA, it's a whole different ballgame during winter.

OK Thanks. I commute to DTW from STL, so I think it won't be a problem.

I've noticed that they start assigning the open time around 9AM eastern. Usually all of the open time assigned within the next hour. I have only once gotten an assignment with less than 15 hrs notice.

Short call reserve seems to be the wild card. The one nice thing about short call is that you can be on your commute for the first two hours, so if you let them know, you aren't expected to answer your phone for that time.

There are only a handful of trips in the category now but that's changing in Apr/May when the first of the LAX 767 domestic category is converted to the 7ER. About 1/4 of the LAX domestic was placed in the 7ER category on the last bid and their first conversions look to be around Apr. The entire domestic LAX 767 category appears to be going 7ER over several bids. Who knows what the bid packages will look like in April and beyond when they throw domestic trips in.

For international reserve short call, when they show a short call at 1800 to 1800, does that count as two days short call or one.

Thanks

With hiring going on full force and lots of new hires coming into the fold, I thought it would be a good idea to reserect this thread....what's changed with reserve since 09?

See above. Another bump to see if there are any updates with regards to sitting short call or long call, or if this info is still pretty accurate.
