So John was supposed to be working weekends this month but due to some small miracle of the line improvement window he was able to get 3 weekends off!! Now the bad thing about this is that his line this month is only 80 hours.... So he's going to have to pick up something to get his hours back up, but at least he can control that! Never have we had such good luck with the line improvement, thank you crew scheduling!!
* Line improvement window happens twice a month and that is where (in theory) you can move some of the trips around to different days or pick up/trade trips in order to work more/less time.
