DFW Commute
 
Which would be an easier commute; LAX or MSP from the Dallas Area (DFW or DAL). I hear there is a lot of AA guys live in MSP and commute to DFW, on the other hand I have a few friends tell me the commute from DFW-LAX is impossible. I would assume LAX would be an easier commute since DFW has roughly 25 flights a day and DAL has another 25 flights a day roughly. Thanks

I think FedEx does a number of flights out of Alliance (AFW). May broaden your options.

I completely forgot about AFW flights. Do you know to check what flight they have out of there and the times or just call fedex.

OJS Guidelines

Read and abide by the guidelines. If you aren't going to make it, remember to call and cancel, it's bad juju if you don't ;) Good luck!

Spirit does both city pairs too.

I would think they're be more senior commuters out of LAX...higher cost of living, less snow.

Thanks for the info. I guess in an emergency fedex could be used, probably not to often since it's at 3:30am.

That's not the first time I've heard that I'll make sure I abide by them. I think I'm going to call AA at random times and ask about loads to get an idea of how full they are.

My dad flies international out of msp and lax and commutes from dfw. He has many options with AA and Spirit to lax and Delta has quite a few daily trips to msp. With many options and positive space, I don't think there's much difference between the two.
