Crew complements for Trade and Open Time

For the crew to be able to pick up, drop or swap parts of pairings it is necessary to create crew complements that will cover the loss of positions in a pairing.

For example:

Complement for a pairing is 1CA, 1FO, 2CA. 

If a FO is assigned to this pairing and decides to drop a part of this pairing, new pairings will be created with only a FO position. The dropped FO pairing will be unassigned, and the part of the paring the FO kept will be assigned to the FO. 

The modified pairing composition will now be 1FC, 2CA.

For the system to pick up the correct crew complement after such a split, there needs to exist a 1FC, 2CA complement.


Note: If you make changes to the Crew complement, you must reload the Roster Gantt.
