Kinda how seniority works, especially if you have none. I speak from experience.

I'll echo what the other guy said, wtf else would a new hire get other than what's left?

Yeah.....no doubt it's brutal right now compared to the late 90s/early 2000s when you had a yuuuuuge variety to choose from on Day 1 of indoc. NYC727C....or...be one of the four oldest in your class and get a MCO737B.

It's been all downhill since then. 🤣

Is the C10 proving popular in bidding or are people avoiding it due to the fleet size and current base options?

It seems popular in bids however I think management is getting frustrated. It has very poor dispatch reliability for this stage of its introduction. EB has talked about the need to improve that fast.

The trips look very regional style too. Lots of 4 leg days. The horror!!!

People avoiding because itís about the lowest paying, and 1 of the bases is in NYC.

Although it seems to be a popular way to get west to SLC.

Yeah but you only fly one or two because the plane breaks and you goto the hotel

Where did you see this? All I saw was that the dispatch reliability is lower than we like to see from our aircraft but as expected for this stage of its introduction. Also that we want to improve it but that doesn't mean it's underperforming. Is this not from a regular company communication?
