Like captain_drew and Sasquatch said, seniority's all over the place. The guys at the top and bottom of each list are probably there for a driving reason (a particular niche ), so they kind of skew the overall seniority picture. I think that a better picture of the overall seniority would be to look at the middle (median) pilot in each seat. That's still probably not anywhere near 100% accurate, but without doing a statistical analysis (which there's no way I'm going to attempt ), here's how our seniority pans out as of last month's bid (senior to junior in each seat):

For the senior pilot in each seat:
(1) DC-10 SO MEM
(2) MD-11 Capt MEM
(3) A-300 Capt MEM
(4) DC-10 Capt MEM
(5) MD-11 Capt LAX
(6) 727 Capt MEM
(7) MD-11 Capt ANC
(8) MD-11 FO LAX
(9) A-300 FO MEM
(10) A-300 Capt SFS
(11) DC-10 FO MEM
(12) MD-11 FO MEM
(13) 727 FO MEM
(14) 727 SO MEM
(15) A-300 FO SFS
(16) MD-11 FO ANC

For the median pilot in each seat:
(1) MD-11 Capt LAX
(2) DC-10 Capt MEM
(3) MD-11 Capt MEM
(4) A-300 Capt MEM
(5) MD-11 Capt ANC
(6) A-300 Capt SFS
(7) DC-10 SO MEM
(8) 727 Capt MEM
(9) DC-10 FO MEM
(10) MD-11 FO LAX
(11) A-300 FO MEM
(12) MD-11 FO MEM
(13) A-300 FO SFS
(14) MD-11 FO ANC
(15) 727 FO MEM
(16) 727 SO MEM

For the junior pilot in each seat:
(1) DC-10 Capt MEM
(2) MD-11 Capt LAX
(3) A-300 Capt SFS
(4) MD-11 Capt ANC
(5) MD-11 Capt MEM
(6) A-300 Capt MEM
(7) 727 Capt MEM
(8) MD-11 FO LAX
(9) A-300 FO MEM
(10) MD-11 FO MEM
(11) DC-10 FO MEM
(12) A-300 FO SFS
(13) MD-11 FO ANC
(14) DC-10 SO MEM
(15) 727 SO MEM
(16) 727 FO MEM


That's probably waaaay more information than you wanted, but there it stands. You can see that some of the rankings at the senior and junior ends don't really make sense, but that could just be a single person who's sitting in that seat for a particular reason.

Hope it helps,
