Who/how decides what his/her original equipment/domicile will be? I understand that both equipment/seat/domicile can change, but who/how is the initial one set? Not asking for a friend, just mildly curious. Crew Resources decides where pilots are needed based on a myriad of reasons (marketing/fleeting/etc...). Every so often the airline will have a bid for guys to move aircraft. Anything that isn't bid by current pilots is left over and then can be offered to new hire classes. After that, it's probably dolled out to newhire classes based mostly on sim availability. Within the class, you get to pick based on class seniority which is decided differently at every airline. At AAL it was based on age. At DAL it was based on your last four...the higher the number, the better. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
