Percent Seniority Junior is a helpful tool in determining approximate upgrade time. For example if someone where to get hired to today the point on the chart where it reaches 50% would be their approx upgrade year.
For someone who gets hired in 5 years they only need to look at 50% senioty change to determine their upgrade year. For example in 5 years when they get hired, the chart might say 30%, at which point they need to look further down to find an additional 50% worth of movement (80% on the chart) to determine their approximate upgrade.
For a current FO who has been with the company 3 years, and has about 15% of the pilot group junior to them, they need to look and see how long it will take from today to move an additional 35% in Seniority to get to our average upgrade point(50%)
