Too much work to type that in there, while enjoying my catering. 5 years flying the 747 and I think I've offset twice.
I think it's 7 total button pushes on le Bus, maybe 10 scrolling down to the exit point. And a extra 3 for me because I like a 15 degree (vs. 30) intercept angle. Class 2 I do is mostly being part of a conga line of planes to/from the Caribbean where the tracks are kinda congested. Less "big sky" to mitigate problems at least IMHO.

The very reason why I always* slop. (Recent early morning from SJU north we crossed a 73 1,000 above and I said “huh, that guys close…” then I realized I hadn’t slopped.

@Maximilian_Jenius Strategic Lateral Offset Procedures

Basically taking standardized offsets from track center while flying oceanic tracks to avoid each other a little better whilst in procedural control. We did it in the mil as well, though it wasn't called that, on our routes through Pakistan and Iraq. I'm sure there is a great write up in the ICAO doc if you want to know more details. This is also a surely more interesting write up. Planning to SLOP my way to OGG tomorrow. Mahalo

break.....congrats @DeltaAlphaNovember that's fantastic! enjoy!
