When pilots become more senior, they generally have greater opportunity to choose their routes. What do the more senior pilots choose, and why? I'm guessing longer flights to interesting international destinations, but that's probably also because that minimizes the time needed for logistical issues on the ground. Do senior pilots ever choose flights that are not commonly taken by new pilots, for personal reasons (other than to get home maybe).

Actually it sounds to me like he's simply asking for opinions and/or factual information on something relative to civil aviation, that being where senior pilots are typically placed. If anything it seems more operations oriented, but I frankly don't care to be so nitpicky about that kind of stuff. A poll would involve asking a sampling of pilots which the person clearly did not do, I wouldn't be so quick to bite the guys head off, there is no shortage of idiotic posts on this board that go on and on without interruption, what does it really matter. Seriously, what does Doug Parker's sentencing and dui have to do with civil aviation, since when do BMW's fly?

I'm just wondering if there are any trends, like senior pilots always take certain routes and never take ones that are for less senior ones, etc. As an example, I fly CO EWR-CLE or LGA-CLE and wonder if that would be one in high demand because it's between two hubs.
