From what I understand the base assignment in class goes by age, oldest picks first.

Is it possible to commute on reserve; do you HAVE to live in domicile? How senior is BOS?

Thanks for the info and congrats on the job bodean!

Curious what the reserve guestimation is for a new hire over there.

Indefinite. There is NO growth at Eagle. Hiring is for attrition only. Reserve on the jets will be years.

BoDean congrats on the job. that's a great accomplishment. before you go to class, really decide if that is where you want to be. i have some friends out there and they are kickin themselves in the ass. you'll be on the right side for a loooooooong time. that might not mean much now, and i might get furloughed tomorrow for that matter, but take it for what it's worth. you can expect to be on reserve for a while and i promise you that will get old really quick. a captain i flew with not to long ago was at eagle for 6 years with no upgrade anywhere in sight and he left. and that's after 6 years!! on the other hand congrats. things could change tomorrow. study hard for class and happy holidays

enough
Enjoy it you all. You can stay for a year or so and get some jet time and leave like everyone else. That is the main reason for the attrition. New people making lateral moves to other regionals.

I rather be on reserve for long time without worrying about my paycheck than a "quick" upgrade to a 121 bankrupt carrier.
