I’ve had a couple of requests to post my monthly roster – so here’s April for you!
I think I’ve explained before about the bidding system we have. There are 7 groups that all the crew are divided up into (randomly, as far as I can tell) and the bidding system goes by group seniority. So my group (group 5) is at “top bid”, where you supposedly have the highest chances of getting what you bid for, in April.
Even after nearly two and a half years I still haven’t got the bidding system completely sussed out, and I only got 2 of the things I asked for – you can bid for up to 5 (this includes layovers and days off).
- Barcelona (one of the destinations I bid for!)
- Munich (didn’t bid for this, but I seem to get it every month regardless!)
- Los Angeles (trying to swap for our new 42 hour JFK layover)
- 5 days off (which I bid for)
- Kuwait turnaround
So as you can see – no new destinations again. 🙁
At least I got a couple of Barcelona trips in there, which will be fun as I’m hoping it’ll have warmed up nicely!
As for the lovely string of 5 days off, mum and dad have very kindly invited me to join them in Athens for a little holiday! Unfortunately it’s not quite enough time to visit any of the beautiful Greek islands, so I’ll try and see if I can do that sometime later this year. Any tips for Athens are very welcome! 🙂
