Throw in 2 more days off (on a 30-31 day bid) and extend the on-call time from 12 hours to 15 and you have ASA reserve. :uzi:

Don't forget about the wonderful twelve hour ready reserve shifts that Mesa loves to assign (but not pay for).

And never mind the fact that only 4 of those 10 days off are biddable, the rest are assigned to you with no request system, or anything like that. The good news is, you'll rarely have the same days off that were on your "final" schedule.

We get 10 days off.. reserve is around 12 hours...all 90 minute call, 75 hour guarantee.... Never thought one of our schedules would look good compared to something but that is just atrocious.

One huge difference: PDT ain't MESA, no matter how bad it gets here. That poor SOB above is making even less (a lot less) than you on RSV. Rough way to starve.

Gee...this isn’t really that bad, Compadres. And the pay is commensurate to the work produced...

No - I’m Serious!

Just so everyone has the facts:

1. 12 hr RR shift pays 5.9 hrs. (far from nothing)

2. Mesa is on a 28 day bid, so 8 days off is 9 days off in a month. (one less then most)

3. B/C of the 28 day bid, the 70 hr guarantee is 76 hrs in a month. (one More then most)

Carry on -Bean

Ahh. So why do (did) we see so many folks routinely sleeping in the crew room in PHL? Some kind of "hot" or "airport" or someother double-secret reserve? It was always after 1800, btw. Was it krap pay, or krap reserve rules, or both?
