View Full Version : Junior 175 base?

I was wondering what the most junior base is for the 175.

My main goal is to get back to San Diego where I'm from and be based there, but I know it will take time. I've been reading the forums that if you're on the same aircraft that your desired base flies, it'll be easier to transfer over because you don't also have to bid a new plane.

Thoughts on this? Would it be possible to be on a junior west coast right out of the start date and avoid a dtw base with the crj?

Was posted multiple times in the main thread:

Scroll down to "Domicile Map/Seniority" table and select Seniority and ERJ.
Last few months this table was pretty up to date, as of today:

First Officer Captain
ORD 07-06-2017 03-31-2014
SFO 06-08-2017 09-03-2012
BOI 05-25-2017 06-27-2011
LAX 05-11-2017 07-02-2012
DEN 05-11-2017 06-02-2008
SAN 03-16-2017 07-02-2007
PDX 03-02-2017 10-31-2011
SEA 11-25-2016 06-04-2012

Add 3 months for training ioe. You can see 1-2 months commuting from SFO or ORD..

How long to hold a line in LA or SAN on the 175?

LAX is looking like roughly 1 year on property to be a guaranteed line holder. SAN is anyone's guess as it is just opening and will likely grow. My guess it will be slightly senior to LAX on the FO side. They just flooded all the West coast bases with quite a few more ERJ FOs so the numbers are likely skewed a bit right now.

Feb Hire, went from composite line back to rsv in september due to seasonal reduction in flying. I'd estimate 4-6 months minimum after IOE. Minimum.

Wow! Just to confirm I understand the dates... That date represents the date of hire obviously, so does that mean that that FO was able to make it to San Diego in about 4-5 months? Assuming that website was recently update with his information when he was now based out of San?

Looks about right. Expensive lifestyle towns like SAN, SFO tend to go very junior for bottom FO's, but very senior for CA's and the top FO's.

It's not so much of a backlog, but rather the fact that the E175 is now staffed and no more deliveries till 2018. They are still running classes but it's mostly transitions with only a couple new hires in each class.

They just did a major shift for the next 4 months. CRJ increases to 50 NH's every 2 weeks. And the 175 stays smaller 15'ish... something seems to be going on for the CRJ. Heard will know next week.. will see.
