I'm in my 2nd week at American Airlines. Amazing experience. I was very lucky and scored the last DFW MD 80 spot. No commuting! It's funny that I'm going from the latest technology aircraft ERJ-175 to the oldest in the fleet the McDonnell Douglas Super 80. It will be VERY interesting as I've had only glass cockpits for 10 years. There's limited glass in the MD-80.
If I didn't score the MD-80 I was going to have to pick between LAX 737 and PHL 190. Tough choice as I'm typed on the 190 as it's the same type rating as the 175.
More to come.
Are you eventually going to have to retrain on another aircraft in a few years as AA dumps their MD's by 2019?ReplyDelete
