April 2018 Schedule / Trading Sucess


#1

April was a good month (only 12 days off but short days which I like). Since I’m at the bottom of the CA seniority list I teeter between Reserve and a Line. I was awarded a line in April but it was nothing near what I wanted (I like short am trips and was given all long pms). On the 22nd of the month the company posts all open trips and you can swap for them. The senior guys don’t bother and not everyone is as “skilled” as I am trading so literally the second the trade window opened I was on there with a plan. You see you can’t just trade all the trips since there are often conflicts so I had to work out which trips I needed to change in which order. When the dust settled I was able to swap EVERY trip I had and actually build myself a really nice line!
