Being a Senior First Officer is like having a REALLY nice Yugo. Yeah it's nice....but it's a Yugo.
Part of my seniority is getting just about everything I want schedule and vacation wise.
For December I got my 2nd choice of line. Out of more than 280 lines....I got my second choice. Not too shabby.
I combined the lazy December schedule with a lazy November schedule. I'm able to take more than 13 days off in a row without using vacation.
This will all change next year. I will be 10 from the bottom Captain wise....and commuting. Hopefully I can bid back to base as a Captain before Fall.
