I flew 61 to CDV yesterday, a trip I've done a few times before. It's a 732 combi, thru flight SEA-JNU-YAT-CDV-ANC, however this was the first time I'd done it in the winter. We couldn't land at JNU due to winds.
Anyway, the crews I've seen on this flight always seem senior, both cockpit and cabin. Yesterday, I appreciated the crew experience, with 40 knot gusts, low ceilings, wind sheer and freezing rain, I certainly couldn't relate it to any flight I'd had in recent memory.
Anyway, my question is that it seems there might be a relatively small group of crews that either bid these trips, including flight 66 and the flights to Wrangle and Petersburg. Are my observations correct?
