Also have an offer from PSA, however 20 minute from NJ to NYC vs 1.5 hrs to PHL is much better. RAH rejected me so that's not an option for EWR.
Did they really offer you a summer class date in February? If this isn't by design (military commitment, building time, etc), go somewhere else.

Most trips are 4 days that don't overnight in base.

I chose they date as I have other commitments until then. Thanks for clarifying the pairings!!

Id rather sit in the FA JS any day of the week over cockpit. Get unlimited coffee, snacks, potty breaks.

Per the march bid pack NYC 900, here are the trips. Hope this helps. Changes monthly. BUT, it is common for 1 day trips to drop into open time throughout the month

1 day - 12
2 day - 12
3 day - 77
4 day - 500
5 day - 153

whats doubly funny is that normally they only have to take the FA jumpseat for take off and landing. Usually wed switch out at TOC and TOD.

This is a new one on me. In the times I was helped by a Delta guy before we didn't "switch out" and I haven't done it when I took the FA jumpseat. It's also not going to be kosher per our policy.

I believe he is referring to the FA JS and the XFA JS. Working FAs have to sit in the seat next to the door panel for the MCD. The XFA JS is next to the service door. Its common for people to switch seat at TOC and again at TOD.

At least I hope this is what he means.

That would be a lot better than what I was reading from it, but doesn't really apply to the ML pilot. I hope he clarifies.

On ML aircraft the extra JS (if only one, as some a/c have multiple) is usually in the aft galley and isn't notably different than the regular FA jumpseat positions. You can't be seated during service so the carts can get in and out etc.

Yes that's correct. Thanks for clearing that up.
