left behind where - because of our 60 percent middle seat rule we have nearly all of our domestic fleet back, one flip of the switch and we will increase our capacity capability tremendously - already having our fleet back

Fairbanks and Anchorage are year round from Seattle but it's the number of flights increasing further than they had previously. Fairbanks has been 1 MSP and 2 SEA in summer. Additionally the winter service is increasing as well.

I know you said “nearly all”, but the fact that we still have 10+ A-220’s parked for lack of FO’s tells me their is capacity that we can capture right meow, even when the middle seats get unblocked

Seems like it's tailor made for formerly qualified 220Bs that are currently affected, will get 220B awarded in 2-3 days, and will get converted 1 April, then sent to SRQ (I'm willing to bet there will be some FOs that waive 30 days before training) so they can unpark those tails. This is a thread drift, but it would seem the company will immediately look for the low hanging fruit of the upcoming AE: SRQ + waive 30 days notice + E period = increased manning now.

We have all of our fleet back! Fantastic! Now if only we had trained pilots to fly them.
