Morning turn pattern is typically Tu-Th every week, or Tu-Fri for three weeks with one week off. Afternoon turn pattern is typically Mon-Thurs for three weeks with one week off, sometimes Tu-Th every week.

Occasionally the pattern will be erratic either morning or afternoon, like a week of 5 turns, then a week of 3, then a week of 4.

For SDF reserve, it is fleet dependent but there are patterns that are week on/off (7/7 or 8/6), some patterns working three blocks with a full week off somewhere, and occasional patterns of short blocks every week. Sometimes there are 14-day RSV blocks, but those tend to be more prevalent for MD11 and SDFZ than Bus or SDF 757.

Great info! Thanks gents!

Can anyone expand on 75/6 flying out of MIA?

What about reserve? I'd assume a new hire seats on reserve for awhile..

DFW is not a UPS domicile.

That said, commuting to SDF is pretty easy between company and AA. There's a couple UPS flights to ONT, not sure about MIA or ANC...and again, AA gives more options.

Ok sorry I'm new to this industry. What's the difference between domicile and hub?

Domicile is a crew base where crews start and end their trips. A hub is an airport where an airline's operations predominantly operate for the hub and spoke method. A hub is often a crew base too, but not always.
