Eventually. But for now not only is that not happening, but even when "shrinkage" does start it'll still be fantastic progression even while contracting until it gets to toe final stages of closing because of constant massive attrition. That's a while from now.

Interesting drop. And 15 Baby Buses to NYC...wow!

I have a buddy who just got hired.

Can anyone comment on seniority progression in ATL and NYC on the 717 vs M88? I know gaining seniority was pretty quick on both jets at both bases for a while, but I've heard ATL 717 slowed way down.

October hire. 89% on ATL88. Seems about 2 months on reserve has been the trend. Think I'd be around 93-94% on 717 in ATL

Seniority will come much faster on the 717. 73N has many red eyes compared to zero on the 717. The 717 does however do some flying that starts and ends in SNA if that is a factor. With some seniority on the 717 there are some very good trips.

Ive flown with a few 717B's who have complained how their seniority has barely moved lately. 88 is the place to go for super seniority as a Newbie.

Just to also Jump in here...wondering how slow is the 7ER seniority progression in NYC. Are we talking about years on reserve? In other words how long has a Jr. line holder been in property?
