Tomorrow is my first day back in 8 days. I have enjoyed my time off. In addition to doing absolutely nothing (like today!), I traveled with my wife to her home to visit her side of the family. I am very relaxed and have no desire to go back to work!
As it stands now, next month I am still the most junior pilot in my status. Next month I have a straight reserve line. On days where both morning and afternoon airport standby shifts are covered, I will either sit at home with full pay or go fly. I am a betting man and will bet that I will be sent to another base for flying at least once next month. Probably more than that.
Tomorrow morning....morning airport standby.
I put in request to move my days around next month. My wifes cousin is getting married and we would like at attend. She works a "normal" job and can get the days off (its over a weekend). All of my request to move my days around were denied....due to staffing levels. The reason? My airline doesn't have enough pilots. Nice.
Hopefully I can resubmit it later and get it approved.
Time to pack. Leaving the house early tomorrow morning.
