Probably well into 2014 hires the next vacancy. 50 are here that were hired between jan1 and September 1 of 2014. We could be under a 3 year upgrade if it's another 100 vacancies.

HUGE congratulations to all the new Captains. You've all earned it, and will make great Captains. We are not over yet, folks. More vacancies coming down the pike..similar sizes.

Great to see upgrade times drop. Curious what percentage are bypassing upgrade to avoid sitting RSV/commute.

Congrats to the new CA's!

The answer is a lot! Kinda speaks to what we find more important, money or QOL. A lot don't want to be in the meat grinder that is captain reserve even for a big pay bump.

Your off base, again. Just because someone agrees with another person doesn't make them the same person. It means that they share a position. I'd be interested to see how many people will take the pay freeze to stay in their base when they upgrade.

Newest Bid went to a Nov 2012 hire. The flowplan will take a few weeks to show when that person will actually head to class but if they really do run a bid each quarter, that person should be in class within a few months. I don't have the time to count the number of guys between Nov 2012 to Nov 2015 but I'd guess it is less than 200. I didn't believe the 2.5 yr upgrade that Ric promised any more than anyone else but he may not end up missing the mark by too much.

With the current FO bonuses, it's not even that big of a pay bump anymore. Especially if you factor in commuting costs and unpaid time away for those that could only hold a base away from home.

NY temds to be more junior, there is a bid that could see 25 to 50 FO leave NY to DFW and possibly ORD. The place that is the shortest path to a line today might not be tomorrow.

Example, the last E75 line holder is likely on the pipeline already, there are only 25 to 35 current FO on that equipment that will see an upgrade in the next 2 years, so those heading into the E75 will be junior for a while unless the fleet grows.

Example, Ny the base is growing and junior. Likely to see movement as people shift but with ORD slated to shrink and if not backfilled for those whom are leaving the folks junior in ORD will be junior for a while, today ORD E45 is the fastest line on the E45.

Example, DFW E45, longest path to a line on the E45, however the status Just posted a vacancy for FO and has been backfilled the last couple of bids.

Example, CRJ, fleet shrinking and could see little movement but a delay in the transfers for whatever reason would see this change.

If you commute vs live in base makes a big difference in OT pick up. If you live in NY but 2 hours away and the construction in LGA is much different than living in DFW. Not to sound repetitive, but based your equipment and base on where do you want to be away from work and hopefully is available or on an equipment that could get you there.
Currently on the 175, FOs are holding a line about 2 months out of training. Mileage may vary in the future.

If or when flow times come down, some FO's will be happy to stay right seat until AA due to seat lock. This will keep upgrade times low for a few years IF status quo remains. You are right about the pay vs. QOL. You will make more on CA pay due to all the JM's. If you value QOL you can make CA pay as FO

We are now into 4 year upgrades at Envoy.

All of you new guys here posting with questions, you've made the best decision of your life. I know that for many of you, this is your first 121 job. Where else can you hire onto your first 121 carrier and literally be in an AA cockpit in less than 6 years.

If you were in doubt, the results of this latest award will clear all of that up for you. Expect more vacancies this year. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we went sub 2 year upgrade this year. The trend is moving in our direction fast and the 2.5 may be history. Again, for you new hires. First 121 job, you upgrade right at 2 years and then 3 1/2 years late are sitting at AA. Pretty sweet if I say so myself.
How are you seeing the vacancy awards? I can't find them.

Thanks.
