Care to explain further?
Are they not using company phone lines to call the pilots?

Not sure about now, but they were doing this all last year. No Reserves available for tomorrow in CVG. I'm smelling another Christmas Meltdown.

I was one that they called. I always screen ANY call that comes in with a 859 or 513 number. If it's not programmed, I'm not answering.
They were all hang ups, no messages left on voicemail.
I know of a female FO who was living with a scheduler for a short time. That scheduler would use her cell phone to call her roomate, knowing it was her day off and try to JM her.
That's a scum bag move.

Using some other person's phone means it is not taped. I would just say "Go FXXX yourself." It's your word against their's. Or just start saying "Hello? Hellllo? Hello? Must be a bad connection?" There is no proof on their end. And then I would go throw a pile of sh$# in your roomate's room, and say "give it to your boyfriend....."

Damn straight.

Plus our contract says all JM phone events must be recorded and kept for X amouint of days.

Not that Comair mgmt gives a crap about a contract.

Im famous for the "hello? hello? hello? Must be a bad connection" line. However, I use that on stalker chicks who call from unkown numbers (but I recognize their voice) that dont understand "Little Bling" was only into them one night and is no longer interested...

Tell them to call one of the furloughs. They might be more interested in working on a day off right now.....

You see on Epic, how they gave directions on how to look up open time in 2009?
I hope to God no one uses that function.

I don't see how anybody can EVER get j/m'd.
I've never been called yet, but I have the perfect answer in mind.

"Oh, sorry Mr. Scheduler, I've just taken my first sip of beer. If you'd have called me 10 seconds ago it would have been all good, so sorry... try me again tomorrow". Not a god damn thing they can say to you except "well then good day to you, sir".

Yeah, I tried that once in my Comair days. They transferred me to the CP who told me to stop drinking and report in exactly twelve hours.

They can suck my left nut... These are MY days off and if I want to enjoy a few adult beverages in moderation then I damn well will.

I've seen at other airlines where people pick up open time with brothers and sisters on furlough. I can say I haven't seen that here and certainly hope not to.

Tuesday night they broadcast in operations a plea for crewmembers to volunteer.

At the time I was thinking "Why would someone who wasn't already on duty be hanging around operations?"

I was headed home at the time to start a group of days off. Perhaps if Delta displayed any respect towards their employees' needs at Comair, those employees would be more interested in showing respect for Delta's customers' needs.

Delta's best slogan ever: Good goes around.

I recently flew with a captain who was complaining that CS has been "hiding" open time again, and he was trying to pick up as much as possible before the Holidays.

We had this problem at Mesa. They bought crew trackers cell phones for junior assignments.

Step 1. Is this a recorded line?

No.

Step 2. Accept whatever assignment they give you.
Step 3. Go on with your life.
Step 4. Deny being notified.

It will stop very quickly

Its pretty simple. Never answer your phone if its a number you don't know. I never answer calls that are "blocked," "unknown," or any number not saved in my phonebook. If its something important, they will leave a message. If its scheduling, don't call back.

I agree. I never answer the phone if the above happens. CS has gotten desperate lately.
Monday night, I was notified of a trip that starts at 7pm on Tuesday. Tuesday morning rolls around and at 11am, CS calls my cell phone 4 times, the last time they told me they gave me an SD because I refused to call back....when I'm not liable to answer my phone at all because I'd previously been notified.
I just called a CP and he cleared it all off with no problems.
