The fewer purple prunes coming back from the SO position to CA or FO is good because it will mean more opportunity for the younger guys to fill up the widebody seats. Which in turn will limit or even eliminate the need to involuntarily excess out of the 727 FO seat to the SO seat. (edit--Remember, too many bubbas going to the Airbus may generate another excess bid after this one)

The positive would be keeping passover pay and seeing some midlevel 727 FOs and SOs moving up.

I'm all over the board on this one. It all depends on what those old guys end up doing. Some may go SO to SO or even retire.
