Hi guys, I was wondering what the upgrade time to captain looked like currently and if you see it trending longer, shorter, or staying the same? Thanks!

Just under 2.5 years. It’ll drop a little more. Then who knows. There’s no way to know.

I didnt see anything about upgrade times that was obvious. Some of these threads start off as one topic and then transition to something else. My favorite topics are “Any Updates” or “Latest and Greatest”, then you get 1000s of pages with multiple subjects. I’ll keep searching for the answer to my question and delete this if necessary.

I get what you’re saying but it seems self-evident to me that you didn’t even try. Sorry to seem like a d*** but if you’re asking about upgrade times you are going to have to put forth more effort to attain said upgrade than just asking for the answers.

Captain base seniority

Thanks 4V14T0R for pointing out the apparently not so obvious thread :mad:

In defense of dodsqubam I suppose it should have "upgrade times" in the title

Those of us that are new to 121, it's not necessarily obvious that you can infer upgrade times from seniority. I don't know this guy's story, but I think it took me a bit to make the connection.

I’d say 2-2.5 as well.

I’m in the interview process and trying to make a decision as to which regional to pick. No, I didn’t make the connection, but I did look for the answer prior to posting. Now I know what the seniority thing means. If anyone else is in the same boat as me, I suggest clicking on the link that was provided above.
