What is the reserve policy at SWA? Just Curious.
I wish every company had a reserve policy like that..................................canyonblue737 said:2 hour call out. No ready-reserve. 15 hour sit-period each reserve day (AMs start about 0330 and PMs about 1030) with automatic release at 10 hours in on the last day, provided you haven't been used. each day is credited at 6 trips toward a monthly line guarentee of about 90 trips in a typical month, you usually overfly that though, figure 100-110 in MDW. 15-16 days off a month on reserve depending on if it is a 29-31 day month. also they can change the reserve times you sit any day BUT the first day of the block, which you have to give them permision to do.
Ditto brother, ditto.Captzaahlie said:I wish every company had a reserve policy like that..................................

Not to try to one up ya..... but I did 4 plus years on reserve after upgrade.Mr Hat said:Sounds like a Cake walk. I did three + years here at Express when I upgraded....don't you get something like 15 days off on reserve as well? Plus you can pick up for a premium on your days off?
Never before have I hoped to be on reserve on Christmas Day......this year, I'd be thrilled about it!!
SWA does not adjust the months by stealing days from other months. Feb is 28 days period which makes it harder to earn your normal trip total, and some trading abnormalities that take a little longer to learn. I think the guarentee is 85 for that month. Reserve lines can be built up to 17 days with not more that 4 days in a block and built to avoid single days off. Contract spells it all out but I usually go crosseyed reading it, and tend to interpret it wrong.Turbojet said:Reserves work 15 days a month period. This yelds either 15 or 16 off for the month (depending on how many days in the month). February is adjusted to a 30 day month by taking a day from Jan and March I believe. You can work extra days if you want and that is extra above your garantee.
