Yes, last bid I believe the seniority percentages were around 67% for A320 and 72% for E190. Today it was 72% for A320 and 76% for E190.
The junior CA positions are in JFK. Not many people bid for those since JFK has the largest % of commuters (upwards of 60% I believe).
I dont have as much experience dealing with different airline seats as you do, but is there a large difference between an Airbus A320 slimline seat width as opposed to a current jetblue Airbus A320 seat width? The only thing changing with the new cabin interior will be the seat pitch (about 1"...

For the year there have been 71 pilots who left JetBlue as of 10/19/14 (according to the unofficial 'Where did they go' thread on BP). I believe the company projected 100 leaving this year for attrition.
We still have 24 E190 deliveries planned for 2020 and beyond. Embraer wont be making the current version of the E190 then, so they would assumedly be E2 versions. IF we take those deliveries i bet it will be to replace/downsize the current fleet. Analysts think we should only have 30 E190s in...
There is some good info on there, but there is also a lot of BS. I just avoid reading any topic when it goes beyond 2 pages. That's when it usually devolves into complete crap.
The more pilots we can get onto BP the more opinions/view points which will level out the 10% jackwagons who hate...
Dont you think the grand plan is for DL to have all of their flights operating from the same terminal? At some point we will see some of the LCCs move to the MAT (NK/F9/VX/B6/WN/WS) so they can clear up main terminal space for DL and AA/US.
