Despair not, ye mortal! The drop, she do surprise and amaze sometimes! Especially if you are in a class with a bunch of bubbas who have ATL in their sights any way, any how. The 88 maybe be tired tech and a handful at times but the seniority progression is astonishing. And the ER may be God's airplane, but it's a stagnant fleet and the seniority progresses at a much slower pace. And they BOTH do 4 leg days!

You haven't lived till you fly FLL/PBI in a 757. I even found a report point.

The 88 looks more advanced than the E-2C honestly. A real autopilot! Autothrottles!

But I got ERs. The Atari Ferrari.

The problem with the 88 is it looks 殿dvanced compared to some Mil aircraft....but the auto-throttles, VNAV, Mcdu only work PART of the time. About every trip it tries to kill me or deviate me from field flight path! :/

On the 88 fleet, "Autothrottles" is more of a sarcastic term. But it's ok because half the time you're in CLMP anyway.

My record is SFO to OAK. Seventeen minutes in the air. Could have done it in half that if the winds had cooperated.

Kinda like MKE-ORD in the RJ days, could be 12 minutes or 30

Or how 'bout MIA-FLL on your B-727 S/O IOE!! Lucky to get the APU up and essential switched before the Captain started shutting down engines !!
