I asked this in a recent topic about Aloha Airlines, but I didn't get an answer and I'm still curious, do Aloha's pilots fly the -200 and -700 or are there crews for each? Also, since I can't find any flight deck photos of the -700's, what are their flight decks set up like, the Southwest style NG, or the more traditional with the tape-style readouts on the PFD?

I am not a pilot, but the cockpits of the 732 and 73G are different. I think AQ has separate crews for each type. Seems logical to do so. The 732 has dials, and the 73G has LCDs. Oh the marvels of technology. One of my neighbors is an FA for AQ on the West Coast runs, I will ask her your question the next time I see her.
She did tell me that the FA crews are separate. Most of the FAs with seniority fly inter-island, since all flights return to HNL at the end of the day.

Do you guys know what the pilots with most seniority fly, the -200 because they get to be home every night, or the -700 because it's bigger and newer equipment/longer routes? Also, what are AQ's pilot bases? Sorry for all the questions.
