Iím happy so far. Will end January with ~5000 PQPs. Itís working out well for me as a domestic flyer. Plenty of expensive trips, say, EWR-CMH.

Exactly. You'll notice plenty of RONs (Remain Over Night) turns for the 752's at MCO as well. Gives them a chance to do maintenance work during some light downtime.
