Changing bases is not as simple as saying "I want to change base." You do get to list a base of preference, and that gets you ahead of new hires. But there is no guarantee as to how quickly the change will occur.

If you are considering Boutique, I'd recommend being willing to start at a base other than your first choice if at all possible. Be careful, though. MSP and PDX seem to have commutable schedules, other bases not so much. I guess it depends on how much you want the job.
That makes sense. I'm pretty much willing to do whatever. Most of the pilots seem to enjoy Boutique, and while I'd love to best based in the West I have no problem with going elsewhere.
