Hello,

Question: What is the average length of time a new hire sits reserve at SWA? I'm sure it varies from base to base and and is never constant, but just wanted to get a feel for what to expect.

Thanks

A lot
Of course, the amount is variable based on lots of factors, but I'll tell you how it worked out for me.

I'm based at BWI; I had reserve lines Jan - Apr. In May, I got a "blank" line which ended up being a reserve line. In June, I got a regular line.

I finished IOE in March. Had a hard line in april, in OAK. Bid PHX in april. Received PHX for May (on Reserve). I was awarded a blank line for june which was pretty much 3 on 4 off. So for me it was one month of reserve and I flew 12 of my 15 days of reserve.
