The RDU-SJU is definitely interesting, considering neither is a base. It looks like it might be CVG crews go to RDU then SJU and overnight. I don't know how you can do it any other way and be legal. Also the IWA-PIE.

Will be interesting to see what happens.

Interesting. One would think the overnights would be three leg trips... i.e CVG-IWA-OAK(etc...)

Possibly, but I don't know.

I mean from ATL to SJU blocks at 3.5 hours. Not sure how long SFB - RDU turns are. I don't see how this is going to be covered as an inside turn, by anyone except, possibly, a CVG crew.

Either way it would be a ridiculously long day with no margin for delays.

P.S. I understand what your saying now. I thought you had SFB-RDU-SJU and then reverse the entire route back to RDU. Going back to SFB would probably work, yes.

I find it kinda dumb we get the email, last night, about having one overnight, but then today they announce a bunch of new routes (which is great), yet don't tell us which route will have the overnight. 🤷*♂️

I don't think it's "dumb" I think it's because they haven't worked it all out yet.

Personally, I appreciated the heads up email. That heads off the rumor and speculation mill, which is good for everyone.

That said, I hope overnight trips at Allegiant remain sparse and voluntary. If we start doing "regular" trips, we may as well go to SWA and take the $20-$30 more per hour. I think for most of us, the day trips are the biggest reason we work here.
