Reserve Red Flag Opportunities

You can call out of time and be released from your remaining available reserve days if you are within five (5) hours of your monthly maximum. If you would like to pick up additional flying in ROTA or ROTD on these released days, advise Crew Scheduling so they can recode these as GDs.

JULY 2021 RSVCOT and Monthly Max:

*BOS and MIA had no flex for July 2021

If you have called out of time and requested a release from Crew Scheduling, or are on days off, you may bid for and be awarded Red Flag sequences through ROTA or ROTD.

Reserves who have not called out of time may be awarded one trip that brings them above their monthly maximum; however red flag premiums are only paid on trips awarded to Reserves who have been released or on days off.

You may bid red flag generic sequences or specific sequences in ROTA or ROTD.  Use the filter Red Flag to search for specific red flag sequences, or include only red flag sequences in a generic bid.


From the Reserve Bidding page:

  • Select Pick Up on FD/GD Bids
  • Be sure to apply any required waivers
  • Choose the date
  • Add New Bid


Select the Pick Up on FD/GD Bids tab


From the Reserve Bidding page:

  • Select Aggressive Bids (ROTD)
  • Add the waiver Award into FD/GD (even if you are bidding to be awarded on a day off)
  • Add any additional waivers required
  • Choose the date
  • Add New Bid


Select the Aggressive Bids tab

When searching for specific sequences, use the Filter options to select red flag sequences.

Unlike TTS, the filter results will not show a red flag icon, however, only sequences/positions with the red flag premium will populate.
