Default New SDF 747 Domicile

Company notified the IPA today that it will be opening a 74 domicile in SDF. No word on starting or ultimate size. Time to shake out the seniority on the MD and Z

And now the million dollar question is how many positions there will be, my guess is 130ish total, but lets see.

What’s the over/under on it getting past 1989 for either seat?

Consider the number of captains who want to be FOs again, I think 1800 would be more appropriate

I don’t think any 89 hires will be going to the right seat.

I'm guessing junior DOH will be 1989 for left seat and 2001 for right seat.

Could you expand on that? Have you actually heard of captains contemplating such a move?? Why?
..and no, I don’t believe senior FOs are making more $$ than junior captains. Well, maybe they do but only IF they sell all of their vacation and pick up tons of JA/OT.
So why would a captain choose to downgrade? To work more days? Don’t see the logic?

For senior guys/gals here - has anyone ever downgraded before?

I’d be shocked if a single captain chooses to downgrade. Not impossible I guess but I’d be very surprised. What’s that saying? “$$ talks and b/s walks”?

A buddy of mine, who’s on Airbus, thinks we’ll witness the beginnings of ‘senior folks’ exodus from all sdf fleets to the 74. His prediction:

SDF 74CA - ‘89 or earlier.
SDF 74FO - ‘90 or earlier.
ANC 74CA - 2001 or earlier. (!)

Why?
He thinks we’ll see some VERY senior folks, maybe even current instructors on other fleets, wanting to come over to the whale. Yes, even to ANC just to get checked out and eventually be able to teach in SDF.

Such a scenario didn't even cross my mind but it kind of makes sense.
We’ll know soon enough I guess.
