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.
That's beautiful! When they called me at home in past years on my cell phone I was always on vacation in Hawaii or Europe somewhere. I told them I was able to comply with the JM order but they would have to deadhead me to base after I revealed my vacation location which was promptly followed by "never mind."

Hang Tough!

comair has purchased software that lets them display any number they want from any area code. I would not answer the phone under any circumstances

It can take a lot more than 12 hours for your BAC to return to 0.

Or you can work for an airline in which you don't have to fear answering a phone call from crew scheduling. If they call me for a JA, if I don't want to do it, all I have to say is "I'm not available."

What paradise of an airline is that?

I always, always screen my calls. My wife taught me that lesson years ago when she started using different numbers to get me to come home from the bar at night.

I also don't pick up phone calls from numbers I am not familiar with, private numbers, or blocked numbers. I heard somewhere that Colgan would JM by way of FedEx Letter, if you signed for it, you are than notified of an assignment. Is that true?

JFK and never....unless you consider Mesaba the new Comair.

Comair will be no more by this time next year.

For real? Your question has to be a flame. Anyone even remotely considering a regional job or simply typing "comair" into Google would know that Comair is a dead man walking.

So there I was on the couch watching football when the call came. JM to CVG, problem was I quit in April.

Quite entertaining but things must be getting bad in CVG

I find that hard to believe. They can't be that out of date, can they?

I wouldn't doubt it. Think about it. It's our crew scheduling.
"Ok, so I'm not getting what you're saying. You can't be scheduled to be on duty for 18 hours in one day?"

What a joke that would have been......

I hope you accepted!!! Then waited for the call that would come when you were not there for your assignment. You could've strung them along on that phone call. Told them you may not show or you'll show when you feel like your ready. What a joke that would have been to pull.
If they can not keep clean records then stick it to them.
Hope you're in a better place now. Cheers!!
