I am a December 2015 hire and was just awarded MSP on the 900 with this last vacancy; I'm still in training.

I was wondering what the (current) reserve times are for DTW 200 & 900 or the LGA 900. I will be commuting through (yes 2 legs) ATL so my hope is to get a line sooner than later. I am also concerned that the lines out of LGA may be more base overnights (which would not be good as a commuter). Any input would be much appreciated, particularly on the latter concern.

DTW200: 3-4 months reserve
DTW900: A little longer, don't have a number.

Depends on the class. My class was given airplane choice one week and base another.

More folks seem to want the -900. Sure, it's a nice plane, but seniority matters for both QOL and pay. A line on the -200 as an FO will blow the doors off any -900 on reserve. It's less than a dollar difference, which should become 1 rate eventually (sooner rather than later). Between breaking guarantee and Perdiem, and a few hotels vs a Crashpad will add up to a positive.

The -200 movement is faster than the -900 as the -200 is a growing fleet at the moment. DO NOT make a choice based on airframe. Anyone that wants the -900, will get to fly it once hired. Unless the NYC bases are your desire for QOL, the -200 will get you the most movement (positive) in Dtw and Msp. A line vs reserve is night and day. Movement is happening overall, but the sooner you hold a line, the more money and better QOL. That's the end result.

Appreciate the input. I agree completely regarding airframe my primary concern is the commute. I believe LGA or DTW will work best for me and thus my questions. I could've left off the 900 out of DTW, but was thinking if it flew more overnights out of base than the 200 it might be a better option. I'm very new to the bidding and lines so I'm just trying to learn more before I have to make a (somewhat blind) decision at the start of class.

Where are you commuting from? I saw you said through ATL but before that.

Not gonna lie. That sounds like a very difficult commute. That'll really eat into your time off.

Your best bet would be to bid for a 200 then, shorter reserve which would make that commute less sucky. Could you do MSP? I haven't looked at commuting out of any of those places you listed. I can't imagine LGA would be a good commute. But I could be wrong
