Sorry if this an old horse that has been beaten to death, but on a non-rev a couple of days ago the FA told me that TS is looking for RIC volunteers for the upcoming move to IAD. Is TS opening a new base? Hiring?

We are opening a new base in IAD. Not hiring just furloughing though.

god help you guys down there. i know you go there every day but i cant imagine how annoying that sh!t hole would be if it was a base and you were destined to be there every day. i hope one day every crew that goes there has the blessing to go to another hub and see how a real hub operation is run

We will have to wait and see how they decide which crews go where. Base opens OCT 1

They claim they are keeping RIC open

I'm sure AirWillie would be more than happy to walk anyone's stuff into the "other" TransStates airline.

This will just become another gj thread that will go on for four or five pages and get closed. I do wonder how long we can bash them and keep the thread open

It does not bother me right now, there is not much to talk about at TSA right now anyway.

How many crews a day have to DHD out of RIC to IAD/ORD to start trips?

There are deadheaders pretty much on every flight. When the weather turns and the schedule goes to crap, even more. I was in STL deadheading up to ORD after 2 days of atrocious weather and here were 13 other deadheading crew members. Needless to say, the gate agents were furious.

hahaha :rolleyes: the united agents hate us so much. someone should give them the number to scheduling, so they can redirect their hatred.

I never fight the gate agents for a seat when I am dead heading. If I get one I get one.
if not, I semi quickly call scheduling and let them know what happened, sometimes I get on, sometime the plane leaves with out me.
