AFA recently sent out the “New Open Time User Guide,” which describes the reason codes associated with trips in Open Time. It has just come to our attention that eMaestro does not display the reason codes that are associated with the individual pairings in Open Time.
If you place your cursor over a specific date in the Open Time calendar, you can see the number of trips associated with each reason code that counts against the limiting of Open Time. You will also see the Threshold Sequence Number (TSN), which shows how many sequences need to be dropped into Open Time before the day becomes limited. However, the specific reason codes for each pairing are not yet visible.
AFA is committed to working with Alaska Airlines management and Jeppesen to display the reason codes on each individual pairing as soon as possible. Since the codes are already programmed into the system, we are hopeful the turnaround will be fairly brief. AFA will provide an update once we have additional information.
All other aspects of the new Open Time are expected to go live tomorrow.
