Wow, I didn't see the excess off the 777 coming. I mean, really?

The -1's aren't really excesses in the same sense as the 727 or Airbus and MD FOs. The -1's are there to prevent those fleet's manning levels from growing as the excessed pilots move into other fleets.

Agree not the same sense as the 727.. but if you are just holding on to the bottom of the seniority list in your seat.. Chances are you are going to get flushed off the bottom as the airline as a whole absorbs the 727 folks.

13-04 will be interesting as it will create vacancies that will have a somewhat mitigating effect on the excesses.

gonna be an interesting few weeks.

Oh yeah, if you're clinging to the bottom, it's not good news that they figured out to use that -1 a couple of years ago.

I know I read it. But now I can't find it. It was an FCIF wasn't it?

.....nevermind. Found it again.

I wonder how many guys who will soon find themselves rolled out of widebodies into the 757 voted yes on the recent LOA.

Utilizing my caveman math, and trying to figure out who on the panel is over 65 and/or not going to be staying, I came up with a total of about 300 pilot slots gone if you don't count the SO's who are not eligible to fly anything else.

The fleet plan calls for only 2 aircraft gone total over the next year - though the SO seats are ALL going so that skews it down a bit.

I'm guessing the vacancy bid will be about 250 seats total. You can probably figure out which planes will get them...
