July class = fall finishing IOE. Highly likely you can get PHL by then or very shortly thereafter.

Reserve has been running something like 20-30/month on average. A lot of variability, but it's nowhere near guarantee. New reserve rules will offer the ability for people to fly or not fly somewhat more according to their preference.

Thank you for your clear explanation. I appreciate it!

April data isn't out yet but per March data most junior at PHL is 4 months and most junior Line Holder is 11.6 months and most junior Round 1 line holder is 12 months.

Also we had a 20% reduction in the number of lines in PHL. Seems that flying was shipped to ORF and TYS because that makes sense.

We are picking up new PHL flying with the new schedule so we'll see what that brings.

Honestly, that's supposed to be the point of reserve. Reserves should be used for unexpected events, not to compensate for a failure to staff the airline appropriately.

If reserve was structured and used properly, there'd be so many senior people bidding it, that junior people would have lines.

Donít believe anything until you see it. I HOPE we get more and I think we probably will but until itís reflected in the bid package you cannot assume anything.

Plenty of reasons to use reserves in a properly straffed airline, particularly without PBS

1) sick calls (unpredictable but not unexpected)
2) covering delays (see #1)
3) half trips left due to vacation, training, etc

Especially since Republic has been picking up a lot of our canceled flights because of maintenance issues. Unless the PHL flying is just reshuffling from another base...
