Never say die
I tried the LCR one month just for giggles. Massive mistake on my part. Partly because I waited too long to try it and screw scheduling figured out what they had now (LCR new to the new contract). For the first few months those on LCR didn't work much. By the time I gave it a go they were being used lots, so my planned reserve month off backfired miserably considering I'm a line holder. Won't make that mistake again.
Yeah now I’m reserve in DFW and get abused. Funny thing is I never actually fly DFW pairings. I deadhead everywhere. Oh well, at least I can drive to work.
