Flight Plan

Translate a Delta flight plan

Delta Version

Delta uses a version of this in iCrew labeled the "html" flight plan. My version has a couple of more bells and whistles and Delta's version is easier to create.

Analysis for 7/20/2018 AE award

Note that these links will require you to sign into Deltanet and are not available publicly. The online interactive version (last link in this section) allows you to see an analysis online by entering your employee number. It works in the browser instead of needing to download the Excel file. If this doesn't work for you, you will need to download the Excel file. Also note that the Surface and lounge computers do not have Excel, but Excel reader. Excel reader will allow you to view the file, but not to make changes such as entering your employee number.

View only version of the Excel file. Download this file to use it.

PDF summary

This works for some people, but not others. Do not click on the request to access file, but use the link to the Excel file above. iPad note: Assuming that you can get to the file, this will work. You have to play around with tapping in the Employee Number input box and tap just right. I have found a double tap where the second tap is held tends to work.

IR Cloud Tops

Delta has Cloud Tops in the iOS version of the weather viewer. I think this is a big deal that not a lot of pilots know about. This is especially a big deal where there is no radar coverage. I have brief overview:

Pairing Summaries

Link to Pairings Summaries

Note that the above link will require you to sign into Deltanet and the files are not available publicly. While I am flattered by the fact that many people find these useful, I would highly encourage that you learn about the analysis tool in the PBS Web App. More details are available in the PBS Gouge or the YouTube videos produced by the PBS Committee. Both are linked from http://pbshelp.info/delta.

PDF

The pdf version lists each pilot twice, once for the category he is entering and once for the category that he is exiting. This allows you to look at a given category and see how the seniority is changing above or below one of the awarded pilots seniority as a reference.
