Yup, agreed. The complexity of our rotation builds and how much it changes from month to month makes it difficult to bid an airplane for a destination. Hell we flip flop fleets one or 2 months out at times too. Just bid for overall type of flying and bases really. On a positive note it gives us variety and changeÖ

I think thatís why many guys just camp out on WB B. Yeah your country will change, but youíre still going international. Not like NB where you can be doing transcons one trip, islands another, then ATL hops on the third. Itís easier to bid when you know you donít have to dodge multi leg days.

Does anybody know what airframe is getting first available upgrade?
Also, does anybody know what the seniority of the most junior SLC Captains are? I know they have 737, 220, 320
As a new hire my goal would be to bid same airframe that Iíd take first available upgrade in (prob 73 from what Iíve heard). Then just wait out till I can transfer to SLC.

Thanks in advance for any info or advice.

Yup. Iíve enjoyed my time a lot on the ER and for most part 80% of my trips have been amazing. But itís hard to know what future holds with fleet or trip builds. Which is why Iíll just sit patiently until my call up to 330. As you said, just park my ass on right seat of that knowing Iím going somewhere for 1 leg days lol

10 year ago people we wondering what the ER future was as well. Fleet around here last a lot longer than we think - (remember the DC-9 taking forever to leave, 717 going out but it's coming back, 5500 series 757s not getting painted then they are)

Default Differences between 73N and 7ER out of ATL

Trying to see what the general pros and cons for these two out of ATL. If it matters, big on flying to the Caribbean/warm places. Makes an overnight a little more bearable. But obviously seniority is king and Iíve been told conflicting things as to what moves quicker.

SEA 7ER category is closing.

220, 73N, and 330 still exist and 320 is growing rapidly.

I donít think the Caribbean flying out of ATL is overnights. Anytime Iíve had it on a rotation it was always a turn (for 7ER). If it is overnights I imagine itís very senior. ATL7ER is really top heavy.
