Default 737 reserve CA

Quick question for any CA on the guppy in EWR or SFO.

Do you normally just get guarantee, or is it easy to pick up time and get to 80+ hours a month?

Trying to decide my next seat!

Thanks

Make sure you ask any respondents if they are commuters or local.

Two entirely different ballgames on narrowbody RSV.

Very true statement!

Iím local and more than happy to fly less than guarantee. IAH 737 CA.

Doesnít mean I donít cherry pick trips when itís obvious Iím going to fly. Iíd just rather fly 50 and get guarantee than work harder.

80+ hours is very doable in SFO

Okay, thanks
Donít see any reason to sit around SFO when I could be making money.

And that's even before adding SFO or EWR EDCTs to the mix.

Indeed. Commuting to reserve is nuts in general, but if a guy needs that fourth stripe, I guess he can have at it.
