Default Criteria Ideas for Trip Pickup/Trade

This is a tutorial to discuss possible criteria bid settings for productive trip pickups and trading. If you are a computer criteria guru, please add in or disregard.

MASTER RULE
Enter all criteria bids between 20th/1200 – 24th/1500 LBT and don’t ever touch them again!!


- We will all get the same timestamp of 24th/1500 and seniority will determine who gets any REALTIME trip that pops in any day in March.
- Any criteria bid saved after the 99-hr window closes will be less effective since, odds are, multiple pilots will have a 24/1500 timestamp for the same trip as you just saved.

Most of our trips are unproductive 5hr/day pay so trading with other pilots makes little sense unless you’re aiming for an overnight or late/early show. The most productive trips are built by scheduling after 1100 am LBT, therefore, for the criteria I would like to discuss some of these ideas below.
Notes:
1. This will work for all 737 / A320 / 75 76 bases domestic flights. (777 and 76 mx ferrys I will discuss next month)
2. I use cities vs. pay options to narrow down trips. Has a bit more control.

Group A = max pay Group B = min work/5hr pay



Group A - MAX PAY 10 HR MIDNIGHT TURN – 2 LEGS
- These settings will award a turn with 2 legs that returns to base after midnight, paying 10 hours.

Work block date: - Mar 1 – Mar 12 - (12 days is max u can select per criteria)
Total days: - 12 -
Days trip: - Desire - - 2 -
Deadhead: - - (leave blank, but usually will be DH one leg)
Arrive time: - 02 - - 00 - (has to be past midnight to be considered as a 2
day/10hr pay, but select latest time to arrive in
base)
Segments/Duty Periods: - Equal - - 2 -


And these settings will give you:

EWR-INT-EWR 10hr Pay Turn
ORD-INT-ORD 10hr Pay Turn
IAH-HOU-IAH 10hr Pay Turn
IAH-ORD-IAH 10hr turn with DH



Group A - ONE DAY TRIP MAX PAY – 2 LEGS
- These settings will award a 1 day trip with 2 legs with a DH for 8 – 12 hr pay.

Work block date: - Mar 1 – Mar 12 - (12 days is max u can select per criteria)
Total days: - 12 -
Days trip: - Desire - - 1 -
Deadhead: - Yes - - Any Segment -
Segments/Duty Periods: - Equal - - 2 -
Turn City: - Desire - (enter farthest cities from your base – will give you 8 -12 hr pay)
IAH based – ex. SFO LAX SEA PDX SJU SAN SJO EWR BOS
EWR based - ex. SFO LAX SEA PDX SJU SNA SAN SJO PUJ
IAD based - ex. SFO LAX SAN SEA PHX LAS STT AUA
ORD based - ex. SFO LAX SAN SEA PDX SXM PVR
SFO based - ex. EWR BOS FLL KOA CLE HNL CUN ORD
LAX based - ex. IAD LIH HNL EWR BOS ORD CUN

And these settings will give you:

LAX-EWR-LAX 11:36 Pay Turn with DH
SFO-IAH-SFO 7:40 Pay Turn with DH
IAH-SJU-IAH 9:15hr Pay Turn with DH
EWR-SFO-EWR 11:46hr Pay Turn with DH




Group B - ONE DAY TRIP MIN FLYING/5 HR PAY – 2 LEGS
- These settings will award a 1 day trip with 2 legs with a DH for 5 hr pay and around 3 hr flt time.
Work block date: - Mar 1 – Mar 12 - (12 days is max u can select)
Total days: - 12 -
Days trip: - Desire - - 1 -
Deadhead: - Yes - - Any Segment -
Segments/Duty Periods: - Equal - - 2 -
Turn City: - Desire - (enter closest cities from your base – will give you 5 hr pay/min
cockpit time)

IAH based – ex. HOU AUS SAT FTW DFW MSY
EWR based – ex. INT BOS IAD DCA
IAD based - ex. INT CLE EWR LGA
ORD based - ex. INT DTW CLE MSP
SFO based - ex. LAS
LAX based - ex. SNA SAN LAS PHX SFO

And these settings will give you:

EWR-BOS-EWR 5hr Pay Turn with DH
IAH-AUS-IAH 5hr Pay Turn with DH
ORD-CLE-ORD 5hr Pay Turn with DH
LAX-SFO-LAX 5hr Pay Turn with DH


Group A - TWO DAY TRIP WITH SHORT OVERNIGHT/FAKE DH – 2 LEGS
- These settings will award a 2 day trip with 2 legs with a DH for 10 hr pay and you can FAKE it on one side.

Work block date: - Mar 1 – Mar 12 - (12 days is max u can select per criteria)
Total days: - 12 -
Days trip: - Desire - - 2 -
Deadhead: - Yes - - Any Segment -
Segments/Duty Periods: - Equal - - 2 -
Turn City: - Desire - (enter cities you don’t mind overnight or leave blank – then you
fake DH one way. I recommend somewhere close)
IAH based - ex. AUS SAT DFW MSY PHX MCO MIA FLL LAX ORD
EWR based - ex. BOS IAD DCA CLE ORD ATL
IAD based - ex. CLE EWR LGA
ORD based - ex. DTW CLE MSP
SFO based - ex. LAS
LAX based - ex. SNA SAN LAS PHX SFO

And these settings will give you:

One leg to overnight and one leg back. DH could be on either side.


Don’t forget to check the box to move the trade to real time window when saving criteria. That’s it. Setting each of these bids 3 times a month (Mar 1-12, Mar 13-25, Mar 26-31) will use 12 criteria bids. You will still have 6 left for random trades/pickups, however, remember any bids saved after [email protected] won’t be looked at until all [email protected] bids are scanned.
Hope this helps. If anyone has any suggestions or better ideas, please post them below. Also if I can help anyone with their personal criteria don’t hesitate to email me at [email protected]. I will respond time permitting, and always free.

Thanks for your time,
Rob

I don't think that trips that finish before 4am trigger another day of pay.

If it's scheduled that way, they do. I have a trip next month that finishes just past midnight after the end of the 3rd day, and it's paid like a 4-day trip.

Thanks for the set up Rob.
