Does anyone know if the new crew base at CAE will open up new routes? Iím particularly interested in Air Wisconsin opening routes to Florida, but any information you have will be appreciated.

Yeah not likely at all. CAE opening will not directly result on Florida flying, especially from CAE. Florida is a huge market and usually gets the heavy RJís or mainline.

Being an out station base means your first and last leg will be from a main hub. ORD and IAD. United wonít just start point to point flying from Columbia.

Please confirm....CAE based flying starts and/or ends out of IAD or ORD?



This would be good for folks living near IAD or ORD....can anyone post a 4 day trip so we can see how scheduling is doing this (or PM me)?

Youíll start and end your trip in CAE. Your first leg will be operating or a deadhead to IAD or ORD and your last leg will be from IAD/ORD to CAE.

Youíll have a 4:30-6am report day 1 to operate or Deadhead to IAD or ORD and on day 4 your last leg will be an evening departure from ORD or IAD and arrive hours after the last flight out has left CAE. Long story short if youíre excited about CAE, youíd better be a local otherwise it will suck as a commuter big time.

I donít know what it takes as an FO to be a lineholder at a commutable base (ORD/IAD), but as a CA you need over 11 years seniority to be the bottom line holder at either.

CAE and MKE have schedules that are not friendly to commuters. Hopefully you live within driving distance of either.

The most senior FO Reserve at IAD is an Aug 17 hire. So 13 months from DOH seems to be the cut to hold an FO line at IAD. 11 year for CA line holder seems accurate.
