What That Weird 'L' Means In Open Flying

Since we're on the subject of Open Flying...

If you've been looking at trips in Open Flying recently, you've no doubt have seen an 'L' next to the position letter.  Example:

;OPNTRP/ 25NOV/ LAX/ I / 0000-2359 /ALL//
 LOF  DOM MO TOF  ID  DT POS KEY TYPE DUTY STA & FLT D FTCR RMKS
              I  5401/25/R   Y   OVR  0650 LAX    45 2 1055
              I  5401/25/S   Y   OVR  0650 LAX    45 2 1055
              I  5402/25/O   Y L OVR  0700 LAX    53 2 1058
              I  5402/25/P   E L OVR  0700 LAX    53 2 1058

This letter 'L' under the KEY heading on many of the trips indicates that at least segment within that ID qualifies for Language Incentive Pay.  So in the example above, both the O and the P positions on ID 5402 contain LIP segments.

There is also a new Unimatic command called LIPDIS that will allow you to display the flight segments that qualify for Language Incentive Pay.  However, the command is goofy, doesn't work well with typing the dates, and scores a Jumpseatnews usability score of ZERO.  We wait to discuss LIPDIS once it's made more practical.
