>Will you stay out of SNA, LAX area?
Do you mean will I remain based at LAX with (at least some) SNA flying? YES! I've done the commute thing and I didn't like it one bit. And that was with higher boarding priority than normal employee non-rev travel _and_ AA paying the bill. Guess I'm just not a commuter type of guy.
767/757 pays slightly more and with type rating + 5000 hours experience I suspect the training program will be relatively easy to complete successfully.
OTOH, 1/3 of LAX's 737 flying currently in/out of SNA and the drive is much nicer than going all the way to LAX. Emotion says to go 737, but pocketbook says to go 767. Either way I'll be much closer to the bottom of the seniority list than my current #9 of 30 status.
>Will the 737 take over all MD-80/MD-90 ops at SNA?
That is one rumor. Lot's of rumors going around, but nothing I would consider firm or even slightly firm. This one makes the most sense though (at the moment).
