What would be the easiest base to commute to for SWA from Nebraska?
Thanks
We have non-stops from OMA to MDW.

Usually the most junior is Oakland, followed by Chicago, followed by Baltimore.

I think then is Orlando, then Phoenix, then Houston. Then of course, the big D. If the Wright Amendment gets repealed, it will be the really big D.

How long is it taking new fos to get to MDW?
Depending on how much we are hiring I would say 1st or 2nd bid.

I got PHX right outta the shoot, so make sure you read the word "Usually" in Rex's post above.

Hey Flybarneyjets -
When you said 'right out of the shoot' - are we talking right out of initial/indoc? If so, that is very cool -

New hires are getting to MDW within a few months if not right away. I got it second month of bidding. You will most likely get a month of OAK which will be a tough commute from OMA but you will be able to get where you want.
Sounds like you are in the pool or just starting, welcome aboard! If not, hope to see you soon.

Is anyone doing BDL - BWI commute?

How easy or tough of a commute is it?
