Default LAX Flying

Hello,

As a potential Alaska applicant, the LAX base has me curious. Primarily what type of flying takes place out of the LAX base?

Thank you!

As of now :
Not a really senior base. But we are not really growing. You will possibly/probably be on reserve for a very long time. Forget about upgrading in under 10yrs. Right now itís actually fairly low, about 5 years on 73 and 7 on airbus. But I see that trending way up soon.
Trips originate/end in SNA and LAX for Boeing guys. Airbus is responsible for LAX only.
Line holder 12-20 days off. Average probably 15. Everything from turns to 4 days. Boeing does lot of Hawaii and Mexico flying. Airbus mix of transcons and west coast hops. Junior and reserve will be lots of redeyes and other crap. As usual. Most of us here in LA are commuters. Crap contract. No scope. No growth. No vision. Only hope is a merger/buyout. Good luck in your endeavors.

Go apply at Spirit. They have a good contract, growth, and youíll upgrade in 2-3 years. Why subject yourself to this dead end.
