Chris,

So did you DH back to EWR on the 8th after the EWR-FLL leg?

I will be on the A320 ORD-FLL on the 16th and back on the 20th. PM me or something if you’ll be up front on one of those legs and I’ll stop in to say hi on my way back to my seat.

Jason,

I could have deadheaded back to EWR, but chose instead to deadhead back to my home of ORF.

I am on reserve those days, I will definitely let you know if I end up in the same area as you, or flying your flights.

(bob saggot) #4

do most of your first flights of the day start at 6 am? is it fairly easy to get flights later in the day or does that usually only go high up in seniority?


#5

Bob,

Most of my trips start early, but I like it that way. Evening trips are certainly available, but they can be a bit more senior. It really just depends on the quality of the trip though. A late evening start might be in a not so desirable trip, meaning that it likely won’t go to a senior person. Short answer: yes there are later trips and with everything at the airlines, seniority helps.
