When I did it years ago we got jason deli. Then I showed up for my 16hr day and was surprised no more meals. Never understood why they couldn't cater anymore .

Yep nothing like doing a 12hr flight and no meal.

In all honesty, have just been following this from the sidelines for some time:

You guys honestly do 12-16 hour stints with nothing to eat either provided or a place to to buy from? Do you just pack your own meals to bring with you? Seems inhumane..

This is completely unacceptable and I can't believe Swift Air pilots haven't tried to do something about this. For he Miami doubles in Miami the don't provided catering, they provided Subway.......................

There used to be a guy in Columbus, Georgia that owned a McDonald's and would bring the whole crew McDonalds everytime we landed there. Just to be nice

Default No food

No food? Difficult especially if you’re just going to fbo’s (popcorn).
How long away from home?
Day off guarantee?
Commutable?
Hotels?

There’s food on VIP flights, not on ICE or Cuba.

Trips are 4-8 days on

12 hard days off they’re trying 14 off in MIA next month.

Commutable can be depending on what you bid. We have commuters but not many. Home based well it’s that you’re home based . MIA has a bit of everything and so does IWA.

Hotels only if you’re on a trip outside of your base or you’re on home basing. If you’re IWA/MIA based you need a crashpad or maybe you’re local.

Default Commuter policy

Any insight as to what kind of commuter policy Swift has? I assume a bew hire will go to MiA until you can be home based? As always, concerned about what happens if you miss a flight.
