Crew Companion Mobile

Criteria Match List

See with your own two eyes, don’t guess what you might be trading into. As more and more pilots use Crew Companion, fewer trips will show as simply “Potentially Open”. These trips will now appear as drops, vacation drops, direct, and criteria trades. This translates to better transparency and functionality across systems.
