Creating a Drop/Vacation Drop Request
This option allows you to create a "Drop" request for the selected trip and an option to utilize your vacation days through the "Vacation Drop" option so that your pay remains unaffected.
To do so, go to "My Trades" page and complete the following steps:
- Click on the "Create Drop" link in the upper, right corner.
- From the tradable trips list, on “My Trades” page, select which trip(s) you wish to trade away.
- In the next step you will review your selections, make necessary changes, and lastly, save your trade.
Note in the image above by selecting more than one trip in a schedule, the crew member is prompted with two options: “Any Trip” and “All Trips”. Here you can select whether you are willing to trade away all of these trips during this single trade or any of them in order to achieve what you wish with your own schedule. Make an appropriate selection and proceed to the next step.
IMPORTANT NOTE: While you are reviewing your drop request you may also select that the trips you wish to trade away be traded for vacation day(s). To do so, just ensure that a “drop” gets ‘traded’ for vacation day(s), just select the “Vacation drop” option as illustrated in the image below.
