Default UPS Bid results

I was just looking through the bid results and I didn't see too many 727 guys moving into the 57Z or the MD, nor too many other guys getting bumped into those. Looks like a ton of training coming up on the 747, A-300, and the DC-8. With that said, I am wondering how much difference any of this should make on the hiring rates at all?

According to the Debrief slides, taken with a grain of salt, there will still be 134 or so hired this year in addition to the ones already hired. Total number on the seniority list by the end of the year will stand around 3000, and they are not sure if they will buy new 767s!
