I have a cousin who flies B737s for United. He jumped at the chance to go from B747-400 1st Officer to Captain on the B737. Other than the obvious reasons on taking the captain spot, what is the likelyhood that a competent professional pilot will prefer sitting in either seat oversighting the autopilot for 6 to 8 hours? Granted there will be period of activity, but not enough to keep the good ones interested. What happens if you add another 4 to 8 hours flying time onto an airframe? You'll get pilots who are collecting their seniority hours to bid other positions. Am I dead wrong on this? ____________________________________________ A.
