I was wondering about reserve captains at various regionals and how much they get to fly per month?

Anyone?

Edit: I'm on reserve and got a little over 30 hrs this month.

Race,

I didn't want the payscale, just how often do reserve captains at other airlines get called and how much they fly monthly.


Thanks for the post though

I usually fly about 10 of the 20 days I'm on call.

I work at PSA (poorly staffed airline). We have been continuosly short staffed since Sept 11. I've worked almost every day on reserve and been used and abused by the company like a red headed step child. I'm surprised US Airways management hasn't came in and fired the management people responsible for keeping this airline staffed. They should be ashamed at them selves. When you have to cancel flights on a regular bases due to crew shortages, that is unacceptable. Anyway, I'm glad to have a job but the abuse by our crew schedulers is started to get real old, fast.

With our airline if you bid reserve you are asking for it. If they have an open seat that they need to fill they will call you for it. The nice part about reserve is you get called for all the long haul pop-up international trips. Usually you will fly 60 to 80 hours on reserve. Our reserve lines are nice usually they have 8 to 10 days off in a row.
