Oh the joys of scheduling a 2 leg day with a four hour sit getting paid only per diem with no crew lounge. Contemplating where to adventure to around the CVG airport, I find myself sitting her in the McDonalds in Concourse C with a brand new book that I just bought at the airport Borders Book Store. I guess I shouldn't complain about that though because I got 10% off for being an airport employee and the #1 at McDs was just as I imagined it would be.
The books that I picked up by the way at by Atul Gawande entitled, "Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science" and his second book called "Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance."
Today's scheduled block pay (flight time) consists of 3 hours and 8 minutes. Our total duty time though is 7 hours and 58 mins. That means with our minimum duty rig of 2:1, I should get paid for almost 4 hours. Oh joy... =) Now with the weather slowly starting to roll into the Columbia, SC, our next destination and with more weather forecasted to arrive in ATL tomorrow, just makes sense that the last day of a 4 day, prior to me getting back to San Diego, should pose these anti-on-time hurdles. It's going to be nice though once I'm on vacation.
