Yes. 75 every 28 days. Paid every two weeks. It equates to 81 hours/mo.

Can you show us what it looks like?
Since I live here, I'd aim at driving to work.

MIA sept 8 - Nov 3, 2019 bid:

12 week on / off night sort lines

14 turn lines; only 4 have more than 10 duty days per 4 week period. A few instances of 5 in a row but these also boast 16/28 days off...

20 lines South America flying. Some, about 10, are relatively clean, some a little choppy but still in commutable blocks, and some look more like base trip lines. Yet, almost all of it is in commutable blocks, a small handful of exceptions noted.

3 VTO lines

18 reserve lines: mostly week on off but some with 3-5 day blocks.

On initial glance these lines donít appear to be that bad. Instead of complaining, perhaps the dude could offer a useful critique citing specific examples for the benefit of those interested.

Throw in shifting report times day-to-day and yeah, things have degraded...
Ok. 4 on 3 off turns, am or pm regardless, has been the norm on my fleet since I got on property so excuse for my assumption it was the same for you guys. My point about the 5 turn days in a row with a big block off was suggesting that maybe there was a trade off at play vs degradation in line quality. One manís trash is anotherís treasure kind of thing...?

They do and they have. The **** spreads thin as it gets towards the top but evenly distributed.
