Thread: Why are pilots checking in?

  1. #31
    per the crew tracker: if you call in saying "I'm running late..." the policy now is to get that flight re-crewed immediately; something I overheard AND have seen happen ..that being said, LIKE-IT or NOT, .. the moment the CA, or FO [possibly FA] rings the crew tracker or calls ops/gate agent to ask "where is so & so?" .. your mis-tripped! and both CA, & FO can get company disciplinary for not knowing the whereabouts of their crew [especially the CA] - IF you decide to sit there and not notify anyone.

    even though we are NOT required to SkedPlus Check-In, believe me - life will get harder for originating crew who systematically show up at the airplane right at 24 prior, or rely on the crew tracker and their fellow crewmember to "get the paperwork and plane ready" because they are running behind. just sayin'

When I do get to the crew room it's only to check the v file, and print paperwork which always seems to take at least two "printing" tries. I don't have time to log on to ASA.

    I know, our duty time has the "intent" that we get to the crew room and get revisions and all that, but IAH isn't set up to do that in any shape or form. We get bussed to the wrong end of the airport, there isn't any employee line for us (we cut, but not really). It's getting more difficult to get paperwork, and you have to get the Gen Decs in an opposite pod from where the aircraft is.

    Checking in would be an easier pill to swallow, if maybe just once they would do something that makes getting to work a bit easier. But adding yet another obstacle????? No way!

    What I'm really ranting about is, how do these guys even find the time to "check in?"
    Checking in would be an easier pill to swallow if they PAID ME TO CHECK IN. But didn't you know? You're supposed to make allowances for all this and get to the airport 2 hours before your scheduled show time!!

    Im in IAD and when i commute in unless the plane is on the D gates or i have a lot of spare time i usually stay on the A concourse. Scheduling has never harassed me for not checking in. The only times I've gotten a call are when an overzealous FA starts freaking out because its 45 prior and theres no check mark by my name... I hope it stays how you all have it so i can stop blatantly breaking my contract. Until then they can feel free to file a grievance with my secretary.

    Must all be new or a wives tale. I've called ops to ask about a crewmember before.....They called the guy and that was the end of it. Another time the CA called them about me at 25prior.... I went to the wrong gate. Neither time was it an issue. They just called to ask if I was coming, I said I went to the wrong gate. "Ok thanks".

    It's funny how some people freak out about clicking a mouse but also vote in their own paycut. Or make bubba deals with scheduling...

    What's so difficult about just being at work on time? By no means am I a "company man", but it baffles me how some of you expect credibility during contract negotiations when you show up late to every flight and hotel shuttle. Maybe we need tardy bells like in high school?

    Also keep in mind some of us don't have smart phones or actually give a hoot if you checked in.

    So checking in is not going to stop someone from calling in to a crew tracker or scheduling if it's 10 minutes to push..(my personal minimum).
