4 E190, 8 Bus. Same as last class. Went pretty senior, as the senior 4 guys passed on the bus.

Interesting. I always assumed the senior guys in a given class would take the Airbus not the 190. Anyone know how long it currently takes currently for someone to hold BOS on the Airbus? Are guys getting it during class, or is there a long wait to leave JFK?

you can usually get jfk or Boston on either airplane in the first system bid. The most recent bid had openings left over on both planes in Both bases.

Wonder why the 190 went senior?

Because not everyone judges their worth by the size of their aircraft?

Just a few reasons:
The E190 doesn't do red eyes. It's got decent movement due to people transitioning to the bus. A lot of guys are already typed on the plane, so they choose it to have an easier training experience. You're only seat locked for 2 years, after which you can do whatever you like.

It's a personal decision. Plenty of guys prefer it. There will be lots of E190 slots later this year.

I'd say guys are picking the 190 for two reasons: pay and QOL.

Consider this:
190 reserve is roughly 4-5 months for JFK/BOS at the CURRENT time.
320 guys have been on reserve in BOS for about 1 year and 8 months! JFK has been just over a year.

So...
With same first year pay, you'll make more money on the 190 and second year will probably be similar money (at least in BOS), with better seniority which equates to better QOL. At that point, you can switch to the 320 if you'd like. On the 320, your relative seniority tends to stagnate as people transition from the 190 around their 2 year point.

Disclaimer.
These time frames are based on a quick look at the bid results and are always subject to change.

As everyone said a above, a few of the guys are older and simply don't want the red eye schedules.

Roger that. All valid reasons and I appreciate the comments. I'll be brand new to the 121 world so my learning curve is fairly vertical these days! Thanks again.
