I agree. I recall reading somewhere that another difference is the corners are rounded in one aircraft & squared in the other. Purely aesthetic I believe.

Hey just got an answer from the company yesterday and I wanted to complete the thread.

Excess bid followed by a vacancy bid: reverse seniority to a wide body-no freeze, then bid to wide body on vacancy bid-no freeze--training by seniority.

You were right. And glad I didn't do it.
