International Duty Rigs (P-Time) Not Captured in New Sequence Detail Format – LAA
The July bidsheets are now online. You may have noticed that the sequence detail format has a new look and more information. However, what you will find missing with this new format is the international trip rig (P-time). This is because international trip rigs are currently pay only, so the P-time was not captured in the new format.
In August, international trip rigs will be pay and credit and will thus be included in the sequence detail moving forward. Until then, you can use the HSS entry (HSS/Position#/Sequence#/Date) in DECS to determine if the sequence has any P-time. You can also use the conversion chart below which determines total P-time by dividing TAFB by 3.5:
