The 74 is the best fleet for only flying one trip per month. SDFZ has trips like that, but you have to be senior to hold them. SDFZ bidpack has a lot of domestic stuff that goes junior. Iím intentionally not including ANC MD11 in this since itís being drawn down

Agreed, I suspect numbers up there wonít go down as fast as planned thanks to our spectacular planning for the 74 training pipeline

I would be roughly 63% on the 747 FO list. Overall Iím around 81% company seniority.

I cannot hold 2 trips per bid period (58 days), I could hold 4 trips per bid... barely.

A TON of very senior airbus and domestic guys/gals heading to the 74, even more are planning to bid it next time around.
Who’d have ‘thunk’ Anchorage would become one or our most senior domiciles?
