Reason Report Descriptions

When researching your award, it is important to check the Reasons Report to understand why a pairing, preference or day off you bid for was not awarded to you. Each pairing in your pairing pool will have one reason assigned to it, although it could be to due to one or more of the following reasons:

 

Pairing Related Reasons

  • The above pairings awarded to you.
  • The above pairings awarded to seniors (report displays maximum 50 pairings per layer).
  • The above pairings conflict with already assigned pairings (report displays maximum 50 pairings per layer).
  • No additional pairings in this layer
  • Number of pairings checked in this layer
  • Conflict with pre-assignment (ex. training, jury duty)
  • Double-Up violation
  • Required to Cover Purser Position (F/A is required to hold purser)
  • Required to Cover Language Position (F/A is required to hold speaker)
  • Position withheld for speaker (Position bid for must be filled by required speaker compliment)

 

Days Off Related Reasons

  • Not enough off days between work blocks
  • Less than minimum off-days

 

Line Related Reasons

  • 24 in 7 violation
  • Not enough rest
  • Buddy with follower
  • Commutable work block violation
  • 30 in 7 violation
  • Exceeded work block size
  • Mixed Co-terminals in work block
  • Clear bids violation
  • Trip-Mix violation
  • Cadence bid violation

 

Line Value/TCR Reasons

  • Allowed maximum line value: HH:MM
  • Bid Target Line Range
  • Required minimum line value: HH:MM
  • Not awarded in order to achieve line value MIN/MAX
  • Exceeded allowed max credit

 

Required Coverage Reasons

  • Coverage dates needed: YYMMDD
  • Not awarded in order to cover more coverage dates

 

Award Recap

If PBS cannot award a complete line in layer 1, it will move to layer 2, and so on. Every month pay attention to the layer each of your awarded pairings and line came from. Undesirable and/or LN awards are most commonly due to infeasible or conflicting line parameters. If you are not getting the results you want in PBS it is a good practice to relax your line properties.
