Did any of you guys get 3 weeks during the summer ?
Or is the norm now only 2 weeks.
This place is getting better and better.

I got 3 weeks of non peak, bid for a second non peak and didn't get it. We'll see what round two brings. Hopefully some summer leave opens up to use the rest of my leave.

Got 41 out of the 42 I bid for, and when I bid for... Like this year... I guess seniority does have advantages after all

3 weeks peak (on the dates I bid for) 3 weeks non peak (on the dates I bid for).

First peak leave awarded to me in 3 years, so rather than being happy, its more along the lines of "about bloody time".
Good luck for round 2 gents, trust me I know how you feel.

Did you get 3 weeks in November? Like this year. That seniority sure is worth hanging on for, huh.

Indeed Montencee... And I've always got my peak bids in the past when I want them... So yep, I guess it does make sense heh?

got worst than nothing
got my bid moved by 5 days
so not 20dec to 10 jan but 26th to 15th.
What the F... seriously?
Cant obliviously bid for those missing days and they wont give it to me on off days so basicly i just lost 3 weeks of vacation for f.. nothing?
They could just fire me if they don't like my work, don't need to force me to quit.
Again a great demonstration of crew management!

Seniority counts for little it seems as I am not that senior and I have had peak leave nearly every year since I joined.

B777 CA. Peak when I asked and non-peak when I asked. (No peak last 2 years-so I second the 'About time' comment.) 39 days total means I only have 30 left to use!

Glad to see there are some out there getting results though.

All good, didn't have anything last year but have got what I asked for this year.... You guys can't expect peak every year.
