fleet has limited destination, about five to six different at a locations at a time, for years we had some of the best, NCE, PRG, DUB, FCO, VCE, MAD, FRA and BRU, with a mix of GRU, ACC, RIO, Hawaii but also lax SFO, than with new seats the future is mostly London, from jfk, sea, dtw, Msp and maybe Portland, with Zurich, BRU and maybe FRA. Until the 330 get upgrade and the -400 because the old jet again.

also, since it’s a small fleet we all kind of know each other, which is nice because its kind of like being in our own small airline inside of airline, great guys.

not planning on leaving, take hopefully a big push up in seniority, but top 40-50% of the group are mostly likely camping out until retirement just FYI.
Were the rsv months by choice? Rsv seems to consistently go senior to the plug for 765B. Excellent write-up.

What is the A330 rest facility like, ER style lie flat with a curtain or a bunk separate from the pax cabin?

It's a separate space, class 1 facility. It's a nice place, I had no complaints while resting in it. The -200 bunks were a little tighter, but just fine.

They flew some of the A330 on longer than 12 hours missions using a passenger seat with a curtain for rest (one pilot, the other got a bunk). But it was a rarity, not something I ever did in 3 years on the plane).

Thanks, does the bunk have room to change into comfortable sleeping attire? How about a chair?

This made me laugh. Such is the question of a WBB.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the airline, a NBB asks four times daily, “Does the plane have a functioning APU?” How about a flushable first class $h!TT3r?”
/sigh/

Abused NBA looking to make a move back to WBB now that I see how my seniority will play. 7ER was my jam until...

The 300 has no chair but room to change. The 200 has 2 chairs but one you'd have to be like 5 foot 2 to sit in, the other is just fine. In the 200, you are slitly hunched over to change but nothing crazy. Both are crew rest facilities below the cabin.

Indeed, although the 300 is a bit tight as I found out this week. I came up from the stairs wondering where the heck the pilot bunk area was. After some gentle mocking the FAs showed me there wasn’t a separate area just a tiny curtain on a common area bunk. Very little room to change. The 900 bunk area is quite nice though with 2 chairs and room to sit up in the bunk, the only one I’ve seen to rival the 777.
