2). SAAB 340
3.) I was off 12 days which isn't that great. Sometimes you'll have 15-16 days off. I had every weekend off and was home by 5 pm every evening. I was lucky enough to be home every evening and not have over nights.
4). I have 15 days off and I work every Saturday. I will not be home every evening this month. Sometimes I will have to fly 8 legs a day. This is not uncommon for commuter airlines.

1. American Airlines.
3. Basically 2-on, 2-off or 3-on, 3-off if there is a three day trip. At least that was the plan. Reassignments and LA's well published radar problems have driven most AA MD90 pilots up to contract maximums.
4. 3-on, 2-off, 4-on, 3-off, etc., etc., etc. Many competing priorities so that may change depending upon what trips become available for possible trade(s).
AA MD90s operate in California Corridor only so we behave similar to commuter carriers (with better contract limits). 3-6 flights per day average with about 1 to 1+15 gate-to-gate times.
