Does anyone know the commuteability factor from ATL to;
DTW, MSP, or ORD.
Living in ATL I would like to get ATL right out of training, but if that isn't possible, what would be the best order to list base preferences during indoc for the best computing options?

Non Skywest pilot but fly delta connection. Avoid a DL hub to hub commute like the plague. Especially MSP as that hub has shrank from its Northwest days. Stories of flights being oversold by 10 with 50 plus nonrevs. Strongly, strongly suggest ORD of those three. Should be a breeze as itís served by all three legacies. Iím sure thereís a flight every half hour...

Pick the CRJ. You'll get ATL right out of training. ORD would probably be your next best bet from ATL with 4-5 airlines doing that route.
