Difficult to see... Always in motion is the future. Wait and see we must.... Perhaps enough Boeing Captains will relieve excess for you to keep your seat... Perhaps....

Painful you think AGE 65 was? Imagine AGE 905!!!

Perhaps someone with access via the company or the union can provide that # --- it shouldn't be some big secret.


Personal this information is...

Told to me by a MEC member that ALL of the SOs who were coming back to the front have on 8-01. Before ask you,
Darth Wader (DW) it was not...

Still, believe this I do not...

Master Fred-i...If wire rimmed glasses you wore, and paler you were, a Hunter of Foxes you would resemble! The force in that one, as we speak, draining it is, with every flick of the pump called "B". Deer Vader, his nemisis, or savior was. 905, his new goal is.

Sorry but that weak attempt at Yoda speak was all I could do.

Remember... Do or do not. There is no try. Joke with you Yoda does... Great effects to Yoda's career there were. With you I am.

Yes... weak the force is with that one. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice: Darth Wader...


Too much fun Yoda is having!!!

64YOA's to 72 S/O
 
We looked at this the other day. The consensus was about a dozen 10 S/O's who would be ~64 next Feb would go to the 72. Now there may be some "younger" 10 S/Os who can't go to a window seat due to medical issues, etc. Those could also go to the 72 S/O seat. There are too many factors to make more than a WAG. YMMV.

Anyway, here's my analysis of the numbers (...please realize I didn't attempt to match this up with folks who are in training, Flexs, LCAs or those over Age 65 who can't bid a window seat...and didn't consider the fact that everyone can bid to fill the published vacancy positions for MEM 757 Capt/FO and HKG A300/FO)
...

Thanks for the information DLax. Interesting way of looking at it.

One question. Anyone have a prediction on what the training dates might look like in general? The last thing I'm going to consider is a "bid to relieve excess" if it is going to cost me 2 summer vacation slots that my seniority afforded me this year.

I think all you can be assured of is that there is no possible way to know when you are going to train until the training letter is released. It will depend on who goes where and what seat they will be vacating. If you want the seat, bid it, but short of getting a training date swap it will be a roll of the dice in my opinion.

I "thought" that ALL pilots over age 60 had ti have a class one medical. So ... what sort of "medical issue" would prevent you from going to the front seat but still allow you to hold a Class I? :confused:
