You really can't go wrong either way. Movement will be faster on the 717, but 2nd year pay isn't as much. I'm on the 717 right now and have no desire to switch. Getting the schedule you want, vacations, days off is worth more to me than the hourly increase by going to the 73N or 7ER. Plus if you are senior in your seat you are able to more easily bid to fly with LCA's and then get bought off when they are doing OE.

Congrats on getting hired. you will like it here.
