Does anyone know where/how to trade vacation periods now?

Contract says it opens the 20th of each month. I am hoping under the VACATION tab on Ourasa.

It's under the vacation tab during the open periods.

Hoping? Why, are you one of the dum basses that forgot to bid and got stuck with all his vacation in the first 2 months of the year?

I talked to a ready reserve FO in the crew lounge the other day who did exactly that. Apparently, nobody mentioned a thing about vacation bidding during basic indoc. I wonder how many other new guys had that problem? I also wonder how many misbids the new bidding system led to.

I'm actually very low on the Captain side and got my first two choices of vacation, both weeks usually go senior so I'm assuming there were many misbids by senior captains as well.

Well, now he knows! Bet it doesn't happen next year.

Guilty as charged. On the brightside, I am senior to you when the swapping begins. :smash:

Same here, tried it in both explorer and firefox. I'm really surprised as we never have problems with any company sites!!!

It's possible that maybe the bids aren't out yet? The contract just says that they have to be available on the 20th, it doesn't say a time. If I remember, the yearly vacation bids came out pretty late in the day.

The reply I got from KH this morning.

I do not think you a missing anything, I think they are having trouble with the program. I've just been told IT is looking at it now, so I don't have any details yet. Stay tuned for more information as soon as someone tells me what's going on!

Thanks,
