Default DCA Seniority

Is DCA considered one of the more senior domiciles? Any WAGs on how long it might take a new guy to hold a line?

Apologies if there is a thread already addressing this question...I struck out in my search.

Thanks!

Might help a little. Doesnít really answer your line holder question though. Sliceback would know, though.

No, it's not senior. A few months ago guys were getting 737s straight out of indoc. I don't think you wait more than one or two award cycles to get there if you're on the 737.

This is what Iíve been hearing, and seeing as well. All the Pdt guys who wanted DC they got it before ever finishing or starting IOE. Believe the next base bid is August? Also heard RSV is sr so getting a block or line would be quicker than you think. Curious what the March 5th class is gonna be comprised of. Lot of 73 is trend continues.

The current junior pilot in the DCA (not UDC) base is 3 months LOS. In other words almost no delay after IOE is done.

But none of this is linear. In June the next group of junior pilots will have seven months on property. Will the next group be 3 months, 7 months, or longer? No one knows.

Current list is 14,861.
Junior UDC (320) is 14,478.
Junior DCA is 14,675. 14,781 in June.

Lastest three months junior line holder -

UDC - 14,132, 14,420, 14,094
DCA - 14,652, 14,551, 14,427

Number from the bottom guy in base, latest three months line holder -

UDC - 12, 2, 13
DCA - 8, 12, 16.

700-900 new hires this year. You can try and estimate the time to get to DCA/UDC by figuring out the difference between the current list vs the DCA/UDC seniority numbers. But if thereís no movement in DCA/UDC the estimates will be worthless. If thereís lots of movement the estimates will be too pessimistic.

Hey Slice new hire here. When I look at 3xp I see 14912 as the lowest number. Is there somewhere else to look to see a more accurate number? APA site maybe? Not quibbling just learning.

There are 2 3XPís. The aapilots one is good for future forecasting. The one on the APA site is much better in general and for an accurate picture of right now (or next month after the 16th). Probably the best tool is the PBS report.
