COUNCIL 42 MARCH 2021 LINES OF FLYING SUMMARY

March is a 30-day month beginning on Tuesday, March 2nd and ending on Wednesday, March 31st.  Daylight savings begins 2:00 a.m. on March 14th in the United States.

 

The majority of crew complements in International and Domestic average between 71:00-76:00.  There are some lines built below 71:00 hours. The 71-hour minimum will apply for pay purposes.

 

International flying:  GRU-- daily.   GIG-- 4x/week TU/WE/FR/SU.   EZE-- 5x/week MO/TU/TH/SA/SU.    SCL-- 5x/week MO/WE/TH/FR/SA.     LIM— 5x/week, MO/WE/TH/FR/SA.  FRA— daily.  BOG—daily with change on 3/28 from one daily 757 flight to two daily on 737.   UIO-- #1035 1945 dep/#2083 red-eye turn on TH/FR/SA; flight #1035/#2083 3-day MO/TU/SU; flight #1035/#1001 3-day trip WE.   A second UIO flight #1002 dep 1455/#1001 3-day trip TH/FR; flight #1002/#2083 3-day trip SA. With the low line averages and trip values, mixing of destinations was required to meet company line holder quotas. This was especially true in the 01 crew complement and the SPNI crew complement.

 

Domestic flying: Overall line averages in domestic are approximately 71- 72 hours among the different crew complements.

RESERVE summary for IAH and AUS

 

There are 30 reserve lines for March. March is a 30-day month. Each reserve day is worth 4:20. All lines for IAH were built with 16 days off with restorable days. Restorable days are indicated with an ”*”. If you have no conflicts or legalities, you can use the CCS function under the reserve tab to restore days off. Restoration is instant. If you have a conflict such as vacation or a legality, you will need to use Help Hub to submit your restoration request. Reserves have the right to restore all days or any number of the 4 days, however restoration cannot create a new legality such as a short block. The first 7 lines use the pattern 3 on 4 off. All other lines were built to meet targets. We tried to provide as many weekends off as possible. There are 2 lines with every weekend off, 2 lines with 3 weekends off, 16 lines with 2 weekends off, and 7 lines with 1 weekend off. There are 3 lines each with every Friday, every Saturday, or every Sunday off.

FSL has 2 reserve lines built to meet company target.
SPN has 10 reserve lines. 1 line has weekends off.
POR has 2 reserve lines built to meet company target.
GER has 2 reserve lines built to meet company target.
