App Description

WinBid helps airline pilots prepare their bid for their monthly schedule. It displays all monthly lines and their associated trip pairings, so there is no need for bulky “bid packages” to carry around. Flight attendants can use it as well for daily bidding and for managing their trips/pairings. WinBid automatically downloads and stores all your airline’s line and associated pairings off-line. You can view, search, filter, score, list, and more. Use your Mac to bid intelligently for your monthly schedule!

** Supports ONLY the following airlines **:
- LUS (East only) Pilots
- LUS Flight Attendants (CLT, DCA, PHL, PHX)

• Double-click on any trip pairing to view the full pairing.

• Filtering lets you exclude lines that do not exactly match your parameters.

• Scoring lets you assign positive (want) or negative (don’t want) value to parameters choosing lines with more of what you want, and less of what you don’t want.

• Filter lines for: dates off, 1, 2, 3, and 4-day pairings, exclude red-eyes, all-nighters, earliest departure time, latest arrival time, minimum pay, and maximum block time. For reserves, also filter for short or long call reserve lines.

• Apply Filters and Scores to the entire list of lines, or to the lines you have just filtered or scored. This feature can create a bid “Pick List” ordered by parameters you must have first, with parameters you prefer further down in the list.

• Score lines for: dates off, 1, 2, 3, and 4-day pairings, red-eyes, all-nighters, layover city, and dead heads. For reserves, also score for short or long call reserve lines.

• You can manually rearrange or delete any lines in your bid “Pick List.”
