Default Reserve QOL

Just curious how reserve quality of life has changed since the PBS went into effect? Can a reserve holder drop some days and pick up open trips during those days?

You canít drop days, that part stinks. As far as rsv though, itís not bad. 3hr call out/14hr on long call. No airport standby. You can self release 6 hrs before the end of your last day of reserve .

3 hours to push not 3 hour callout. in the entire rest of the industry the callout is notification to showing up, for some reason we run this "phone call to push" idea which is absurd.

Not that absurd considering most places are a 2 hour call to report. Basically just a different way of saying 2 hour call out on short call.

it is but it isn't. it makes it nearly impossible to compare apples to apples and people fall in the misinformation. Look at the poster above. 3 hour callout.

Someone reading assumes that's what we have, and that's just not the case.

This has only been beat over and over again.

Itís 3 hours ready to push.

This isnít ďessentially a 2 hour call outĒ

This isnít ď45 minute show so itís a 2:15 hour call out with a 45 minute show timeĒ

This isnít ďplane is ready to push in 3 hoursĒ

Itís ďthe pilot will arrive at the aircraft and be ready to depart within 3 hours of receiving notification of the tripĒ

You have 15 minutes to call scheduling back when notified of the trip, that isnít not counted in the 3 hours time.

There is no definition of what ďready to departĒ means. So if you can be ready to depart in 5 minutes after taking your seat, there you go. Plane can push late, itís pilot ready to depart.

Itís all covered in the new hire guide on the Alpa website.

Thanks for everybody's responses and clarifying this 3-hour rule!
Can anyone venture an educated guess on how long it takes to hold a line in LAS and ORD for a new hire?
