That's not how it is supposed to work. The idea is to put together a new hire class or classes that would be ASSIGNED to the MD-11. They wouldn't have a choice. It raises all kinds of interesting pass over pay issues for the junior folks already on the property. I hope the junior guys/gals study up on the contract and figure out how to both protect themselves and qualify for pass over.
