Crew complements for Trade:
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.
Complement for a pairing is 1FC, 1FO, 2CA
If a FO is assigned on this pairing and decide 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 original pairing composition will now be 1FC, 2CA.
For the system to pick up correct crew complement after such a split there need to exist a 1FC, 2CA complement.
Note: If you make changes to the Crew complement, you have to reload the roster gantt
