Default MCI commute

Anyone know what it is like to commute out of MCI? Any bases work better to get to?

DFW
ORD (regional)

These are frequent. Others fewer per day.

(My mom was in a nursing home there, so made regular trips for 5 years.)

I’d go through and count the number of AA mainline flights, AA regional flights, and OAL flights to each base (flight view app is great for this). AA mainline is best, but a high total number is also great. Calculate block times of flights to each base. Factor in time zones, same is great, going west buys you earlier shows but later returns home, east is opposite. Honestly not a big deal from CST. Then start looking at seniority in each base and equipment. It’s worth a longer commute to have better seniority. Tie goes to the Airbus for its roomier cockpit and side stick (the way a plane was meant to be flown)

Great thing is you can change bases very easily.

Edit:

Number of commuters matters too, less is better, but you won’t really know that to you do it for a while.

When were you hired and how long have you been out? What can you hold based on the most junior guy?

How senior are you? DFW 320 will probably be your best bet.

Airbus have two jump seats, 737's have one. Another factor to consider.
