Thanks !!!

Do you also happen to know the approximate reserve times in both MSP and DTW, as well as projected upgrade time for new hires? Hate to ask these same old questions but I didn't see anything in the last several pages of posts.

Upgrade, no clue, sorry!
Reserve for Detroit, 3-4 months it sounds like. MSP is probably similar, but I don't know any guys out there currently.

I'm in my second month of reserve (MSP 200) and might have held a line in March if not for DTW needing TDY pilots. So it's about 3-4 months at MSP on the 200 side, longer in the 900.

Reserve on the 200 is projected to be about 3 months. 900 is rumored to be about 6 months. This changes constantly, and varies base by base. I highly recommend you delve deeper into this thread and read forward. Page 177 is less than 2 months old. Lots of good info here, and not as much BS or drama as is typical to APC.

900 4-day out of JFK was an easier trip than a 200 4-day out of DTW in my experience. Fewer, longer legs and greater ability to make up time when needed.

900 will pretty much do FL370 at M.80 with ease at all weights and temperatures. Operating JFK-ORD being on top of a line of TSRA in central PA/western NY vs. the 200 guys out of DTW picking their way through it will make you appreciate the capability of the 900 (and I did my fair share of the latter for 9 years). 900 flies more stable than the 200 and rides better. EICAS will make you spoiled and it's a bit of a letdown when you move over to the 737 or MD88. If you get the chance to fly the 900 and the base/QOL situation works, I highly recommend it. Nice machine.

Bleed(s) is automatic
Fadec aka, climb well above FL180 better than the -200
2 FMS heads
Meals on long legs (-200 limited to 750mi)
Forward lav (worthless when doing less than 750 mi legs)

I know everyone has said the 200 has a quicker reserve time than the 900, but is that the same for upgrading? Is it just a slower timeline on the 900?
