The Crew Scheduling Department is the piece of the operation that has the most effect on cancellations, on-time performance, delays, and lost revenue. Therefore, streamlining any of the scheduling processes can have a significant effect on an airline’s profitability.
A crew scheduler’s primary responsibility is to track critical issues minute by minute, monitoring any trips/pairings affected by sick calls, delays, cancellations, IROPS, legality issues, etc., and modify those affected trips in a timely manner to mitigate any further delays or cancellations. Most existing core crew tracking systems are old and lack the tools crew schedulers of today need. You are often tasked with fixing critical issues without having the information you need for an optimum solution in a timely manner.
