Default PP%

If a trip opens up with 50%PP, it will go to 100% if no one picks it up. Just sayin.....

True, but if crew companion shows a rsv wanting to pick it up at 1055/1100, might need to go for it.

Default PP%

I love it when people berate others for picking up premium pay at less than 100pct. What they really are saying is junior people should allow trips to go to 100pct which of course means a senior person will pick up and the junior one has no chance. Give me a break. If someone wants to pick it up at 50pct then go for it! If itís at 50pct and reserves are trying for it then it may be the only option as wellógo for it. Often times itís the only way someone who isnít super senior to get a premium pay trip. So letís not keep saying it helps the company etc etc. Whatvisnreally being said is that taking a trip at 50pct prevents more senior people from getting the 100pct payday.

Not 100% true for some cases. Iíve seen trips sit at 50% for a good long while and then instead of being upped to 100% they will change the trip to another base using deadheads to make it work. Makes for a very easy new trip for whoever gets the new trip and those who were left wanting to see it go 100% in the original base are left with nothing.

I never pickup, but just curious how trips with PP are identified in open time? How do you know if it's 50%, 100%, or no PP at all?

Crew Companion shows a green money symbol and the % that the circle is filled is the percent.

For the life of me I can’t understand why everyone doesn’t use CC. It’s an amazing tool that ALPA got the company to buy for us. If everyone used it there would be MUCH less confusion with trading as everything there is transparent.

Maybe I just answered my own question lol.
