Manual Insertion Ek Roster

Gents,

I've seen a lot of emailís stating they have a manual insertion on their roster.
How do you tell if it is a manual insertion?
Is there some roster code or is it just because it's a flight in the middle of days off.

I canít tell for sure just by looking at my roster.

I've had a couple of those- I think it is because they can't show two aircraft types on one pairing. The DH bit will be correct and you will be operating the other sector. I only found this out by e-mailing pre-ops because it confused the heck out of me. Easily done mind, especially after (another) night turnaround.

The obvious manual insertions are when your roster gets emailed to you, and the same day you call Evita and have a roster change.

If they have done the insertion before emailing you the roster, it's harder to proove your case. However, with my style of bidding it's easy, as I rank all the trips in teh system. If I get a trip that's on the bottom of the list, especially at the top 3 months, then it's obvious that the trip was not assigned by the computer.

EK X-mas rosters ... ?

It's the 24th and no rosters.
Why? There's plenty of drivers.
Guess they figure " ... ahaaaa, you boys complain about the wonderful and cosy-quiet J-sets for inflight rest!! Let us show you who's in the driver seat and we'll just put ten more jingles to f..k up your december rosters to spoil your alls x-mas. This might take a day or two but will give us a big laugh ... "

Let's see

Perhaps too many 'preferential treatment' manual changes to be done to the fair automated roster before they publish it. It's December after all.

Im still hoping it's out by today.

Maybe one guy did an insertion too much and the system gave up... now what to do next? We all know nobody up there has the brainpower to make it work again.

Can anyone access the EY portal and check if there are no EK rosters out there?

Aaah... at least this national ID card thing is running smoothly...

Since the bids closed late (due to real or imagined problem) then they will come out late.

I didn't expect to see it today.

If you look at individual flights then the crews are all assigned already. I was able to find out what I am doing Xmas by doing this. If the roster is therefore out, then I can only assume it is being witheld from publishing to enable manipulation....cynical perhaps, but why else.....

So you actually went through all of the flights to see if you're on one of them? Wow. Please tell you you're on the 310.

I actually got what I bid for on Xmas day, so it took all of 2 mins to check. Nice when it works out......hope that all can enjoy a Merry Xmas wherever they are...the rosters are now out btw, just received in my inbox.

How do you know it's a manual insertion? I would have thought that bidding correctly in top bid group for a day off should be an automatic gimme.

Agree about rosters. Disgrace is putting it mildly for such an important month. I wonder how many of our managers will be working a full day on Thursday 25th?
