How about initial base assignment?

Towards the end of systems ground school you'll get your base assignment.

If you're on the ERJ: LGA
If you're on the CRJ: DTW, MSP, DFW or ORD are likely initial base assignments as of late. Probably DTW.

It can be base/equipment dependent, particularly on the ERJ. You will get United benefits no matter what system wide. ERJ you won't get American but depending on your base, you could also get Alaska or Delta.

The ERJ has UAL benefits system wide and DAL or AS in bases that support that partners flying. ORD/LGA for example will have UA and DL benefits, but not AS or AA because we do not support that network. SAN will have UA and AS but not DL because they do not support the DL network.

Of course, you can still be called on reserve to work for any of them. TFAYD.

The CRJ will have UA, DL and AA benefits, regardless of base.

On the CRJ, only LAX, ORD, PHX, DFW, and DMA bidding pilots get AA flight benefits.

Also, all employees, regardless of base, get AA benefits on SkyWest at risk flights and on all SkyWest operated Alaska flights.

That's AA and UAL benefits only for CRJ based in DFW correct? No DAL?

All CRJ pilots get both United and Delta flight benefits.

Thanks for clarifying that. I've been here almost three years and considering bidding for DFW, but didn't want to lose the Delta benefit. Helps make this decision a little easier.

I hear most are getting LGA on the ERJ side and less likely to get ORD?
