Cockpit Chronicles: How pilots choose their schedules

Flew as FO on a Santo Domingo turn the other day.  Apart from staring at a Caravan that wanted to land on us, it was pretty uneventful.  Read the whole story here.  I also failed to mention in the story that as we were pushing back the APU quit, which left us without air conditioning and power for a moment.  This is a known issue on the 757 and the 767.  It typically happens when you shut off the air-conditioning just prior to starting the engines.  It was no problem to restart the APU while the tug was still connected.
