    May bids are out. Did anyone else get a crappy schedule? I'm bidding 16% and got awarded trips from my 7th layer. And I can't pull up the reason report.

    Bidding 7%, and I got my layer 1.... who'da thunk it. :stir:
    What the heck were your layers 1-6? Did you have a lot of preassignments or something? Or MSP based cause obviously that's not gonna be good from now on, basically.

    LAX Captain. I bid 2-5 day trips, 85-95 hours, waive one day between trips. Layer 6 was the 24th-27th off. Didn't even get that.

    So I noticed that SKYW is flyin a couple Compass routes for example LAX to DEN and back. The flight numbers were Compass numbers and had a captain mention somethin about it.

    I'm curious about the details on why that happened..? When hiring slowed down last September ish, was that when that may have happened. Just curious. Thx

    That might have been around the time we had several planes in BNA for heavy check,so they pulled some of our flying down

    "Heavy check" ? Is that just one of the very comprehensive maint inspections?

    Thx

    Yeah. Technically I guess it's called a basic check,but it's usually a 20 day turnaround

    They also own their own planes. No magical shell game with SKYW!

    Yep. Pilots with a build up line could drop reserve days within FLICA. It was "not allowed" but FLICA would approve the requests.
