My perspective (and the dozen or so with whom I went through training on it seem to agree) is that the 737 is really fun to fly and not that hard to learn. Maybe later when I've gained 30 lbs and don't want to work so hard (if that's what you call this), the Bus might be appealing, but for a new hire all that should matter is QOL. Bid to minimize or end your commuting, to get a line ASAP, etc.
Amen. Having done a CRJ E190 Airbus and now 737 I can’t agree more. Driving to work was worth the lateral move to the 737. Seat lock up in a year and maybe try the 787 out. Who knows.

Every plane has its positives and minuses. Hell even that CRJ included in that.

Yep. Like i said before, every plane i have flown, i have enjoyed. The more outdated and bare boned, the more fun the flying seemed. Even the EMB, i especially dug the heading bug sync feature, seriously. Course this wouldn't stop the 737 heading bug nazi to my left from reaching up and centering it when it gets one click off, on my leg no less! That, and several other nervous habits, is more annoying than anything the jet can throw at me. Kinda fun though when i find that guy, to keep moving it off when he isnt looking.

Some nearly new hires got displaced to DCA a while back.

So, Boeing isn't really immune. One has to wonder if that factored into the 787 bleedless system.
Captain committed suicide after totally being left out in the cold on LTD. Very sad and unnecessary.

Loudness, small cockpit, no tray table or sidestick, etc, these things dont define a jet as "sucking" in my opinion. Airline flying is the easiest job I have ever had. I love it. I love the 73. I have no problem going into combat each day with that damn box on my descent. I take it as a challenge and love the match. I feel good in a tight cockpit. I can put my legs up. I can recline the seat. All is good. I got me a good headset, no more loud cockpit. Pretty easy stuff. And when I move the yoke left, airplane rolls left. Pull back, airplanes nose picks up. Amazing. The ole horse has brought me home every single time. No complaints.

Holy lord!!! When did we start landing 73’s on a “deck?” Combat? My lord I hope you are kidding.

Probably more than a few did that.

LTD is pathetic.

I have a very low opinion of insurance companies to begin with, but even by my very low standards, our LTD system is 100% crap.

If it’s not 100% fixed, any TA will definitely not have my vote.

You must have a sad life. No i'm
actually not kidding jerk. Some of us refer to the ground as the deck. BFD. Does that violate your rules or just plain ole trigger you snowflake? I text my wife SOD every time i land. Is that your only smartass remark?

No you’re not in the military anymore. So if you want to continue to sound like an idiot go ahead. But if we fly together be sure to call the ground what it is-the ground!!
