In addition…

Taylor’s February reserve started today, and he immediately got called out on a 4-leg overnight trip. The lame part is that it’s to ferry a plane from Detroit to Cincy. So he deadheads to from ATL to CVG, from CVG to DTW, lays over for 4 hours at DTW and ferries the flight to CVG, and deadheads back to ATL.He reports at 6:00 pm tonight, so I won’t get to see him after work today, and he doesn’t get home till after 9:00 pm for my birthday tomorrow.

This stinks.

At least he has the night of my birthday party off (where only 3 of 20 people invited are coming.)

    Think of it this way…at least he has a job. I know it stinks but it could be worse. And I am sure he will make it up to you at a later date.

    This sucks Nicole…but have to agree with Lori…. He will make it up to you!

    What does “deadhead” mean? I’m trying to learn all the piloting lingo! Brett’s interview with DCA is Tuesday 🙂

  • Nicole

    Deadheading is when crew scheduling needs you in a different place, so they reserve a positive-space seat on a passenger flight. You get paid for the flight hours, but you can’t log them like you would a flight that you actually FLEW. Taylor likes them because it’s easier than jumpseating to get around, and he can play games or listen to music.

    Congrats on Brett’s interview!
