How are these new hires ever going to see upgrade to be eligible to flow? There are FOs with 7.5 years seniority that cannot hold upgrade! There's around 7-800 FOs. We'd have to upgrade 30 a month for 2 years just to have any hope of meeting Deltas "projection" for new hires...yet we just had another CA displacement downgrade! With more downgrades on the horizon, DL looking for suckers
edit: I guess I shouldn't say "we" as I have bailed...Best of luck to a great group of beat down pilots

The numbers do work because they want to staff 150 plus airframes...the problem is they won;t be able to
