Just curious, 180 - 48 = 132 hrs where/how did that credit come?

Even if it is true it's by far the exception not the rule. The majority of the pilot group is on about 75 hrs. Let's focus on what's important and not how we can achieve obscene credit by never leaving town and waiting by the phone hoping.

My guess is vacation, transition conflict, and two junior assigned 4 day trips at 200%

The perfect storm

Simple, 20hr transition conflict, 15 hour ja. No real math required. Please don't look behind the curtain...

They would also need to drop/ pay protect another two 4-days along with the 2 ja's...

I would LOVE to hear how that works!
AND how many months per year this works out

Who said anything about 132?

180.5 hours of credit. Actual block is 48. 18 days off.

Transition, vacation, one JA and two trips with MUP & pay protection for dropped trips.

Definitely not normal. Brought my 2015 average monthly credit to 115/month.

FWIW still equates to less than industry average.

Would have hit 200hrs but passed on a JA. Vacation with the family

****should be 183, I'm missing two days of MUP

Well vacation doesnt count, but mup + pay protection is a cba violation if I remember correctly. Playing socialist's advocate, didn't you take 2 ja's from fellow pilots, and take a line away from nk pilots yet to be born (hired)?

Also, you "passed" on a ja during vacation? MAJOR CBA VIOLATION.

Careful you don't loose your IA club membership

Sweet! I've got vacation in October and December. Hopefully, I'll be able to do better than I did last year with bidding.

I'll have to pick up to get a transition conflict though. That'll cut into my days off.
