    Down to 104 from 108 in Nov. Usually December is a month of natural growth in lines, so this doesn't look good... Thoughts?

    You’ll be in the December 11th class at UAL. Those are my thoughts. Shift your mindset over to making spreadsheets with Boeing and Airbus on them.

    I'm guessing this is in IAH? I think that's the only base left with over 100 lines.... All the growth in ORD is going to CRJ fleet right now.

    I still can't figure out for the life of me why people are surprised the lines are shrinking. We're losing about 40-70 pilots a month off the list with 2-6 new hires. Can't grow with that.

    Just wait till the 18-10 system bid takes effect and all the ASA’ers invade IAH. Everybody’s seniority will get killed but lines might go up!

    How do you know these things? IM me with the most junior guy you have heard with a hard class date. All I have is a tentative guess. ...and yes, I do have a Boeing SS started already with tabs for 73, 75/76, 77, and 787 seniority in EWR, SFO, and IAH.

    Pretty much whatever you are holding now is where you'll be, except senior FOs will see an immediate drop till the CA vacancies open up. I anticipate they will lose a year of their life to integration. But that's ok, because the first CPP FO will have made class easily by then...
