I heard from a couple of former Net Jets captains that the whole 7 on 7 off is way off from the norm unless you have a super high seniority number, what's the real deal?
 
True.

In a nutshell, Netjets considers a crew one captain and one FO and only grants the 7n7 to the top 50% of 'crews'. Since most fleets are overstaffed with Captains (it provides scheduling flexibility) almost all the FOs can hold the 7n7 while most of the Captains cannot...

For example if your in a fleet where there are 300 Captains and 100 Fo's ...

Half the FO's (50) can hold 7n7 - 50%

But only the top 50 Captains will be able to hold it - 16%
