Schedule bidding takes place every 4 months with an annual open flush bid effective in October (bid in June). Pilots cannot be bumped from the schedule they hold during the closed bids (October and February) unless they choose to attempt to bid a different schedule.
Crew choice schedules idicates how many total working days there will be in a single trimester (i.e. 72-day schedule will be 72 total working days over a single 4 month period. See monthly averages below.)
CC52 (avg 13 days per month)
CC60 (avg 15 days per month)
CC72 (avg 18 days per month)
CC76 (avg 19 days per month)
On the crew choice schedules, the company may borrow two additional days in a single month from the next month during a trimester but must give two additional days off in the following month (i.e. On the 72-day schedule, you normally work 18 days per month during a trimester. The company is allowed to have you work 20 days in a single month but the following month, you will only work 16 days.)
Crew Choice Schedules have 5, 6, 7, and 8 day max tour length options bid by seniority (CC52 has only 6, 7, and 8 day options). 8 day tour options on the Crew Choice schedules (Long Tour - LT) pay a 3% override to base wages.
A crewmembers normal day rate is calculated by dividing their base wage by:
CC52 - 156
CC60 - 180
7/7 - 182
8/6 - 208
CC72 - 216
CC76 - 228
(Ex: A Year 3 First Officer on CC72 has a normal day rate of $458.81)
Holiday pay is 250% day rate on New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents’ Day, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Late return to your base ("After Midnight") is an override of 2 days at the extended day rate (equivalent to 300% your daily rate and no duty other than travel required).
A crewmember’s hourly overtime rate is calculated by dividing his annual base wage by 2,184 hours and multiplying the quotient by 1.5 (Ex: Year 3 First Officer on CC72 makes $68.06 / hr when accumulating OT)
Pilot overtime rate is paid for all legal duty after 12 hours on duty.
Crewmembers who are required to start duty before 0800 Local Crew Base Time on the first day of work will be paid the hourly overtime rate for all duty prior to 0800 local on the first day of work and will be paid the hourly overtime rate for all duty in excess of nine (9) hours on that same first day.

No duty will be performed after 14 hours, no more than 10 flight hours per 24-hour period.

All new hires are guaranteed 5 days off after indoctrination and then 5 guaranteed days off after aircraft initial training. There is possibility for more days off depending on IOE availability. For all training events after new hire training, for every 2 days in training, you will get 1 day off at the end of training (a 22-day course gets you 11 days off at the end).

On the 7 & 7 schedule, you are guaranteed 21 days off duty per 7-day vacation award. On the crew choice schedules, you are guaranteed 4 days off before your first day and after your last day of vacation.
