I keep hearing something about a commuting bank? Better to commute on FedEx and just get there a half day early than to try to airline? Any illumination would be appreciated! Thanks!
Welcome to the party, Gobnu! I hope you'll enjoy it.
One BIG thing to remember is that the pairing dates are always in GMT,...so your trip might actually start the afternoon or evening before the date on the pairing!!
If it does happen that you miss a trip due to wrong date, you won't be the first, but if you do, I hope that it does not happen while you're on probation.
Cheers,
