The Scheduling Committee meets each quarter to provide input to management concerning trips and schedules. Although individual trips are now being produced by the IBT (pilot’s union), it is the responsibility of the Scheduling Committee to establish the bid line. In determining bid lines, the Scheduling Committee attempts to keep lines consistent especially regarding days off, morning and afternoon trips, 2, 3, or 4 days trips, and many other factors. However, they must take into account Trip credit values, scheduling and marketing changes, aircraft maintenance schedules, and holiday reductions when building lines.
