Default Long beach base?

Just wondering how long would it take to get LGB as an FO? Is there any rumors regarding the 190 coming out west?
Also, with the growth plans, how long would someone be on reserve in BOS/JFK?
Upgrade time on the 190?

Thx,

HappyD

All over the place. Last couple years itís been anywhere from day one of training to about a year. Base trades each month, there have been a couple guys get in recently after six months or so.

I donít think anyone sees the 190 going out there but who knows, stranger things have probably happened.

Long Beach is a good base. You can get it in a year but you will never upgrade there. You also will never see the E190 there, possibly the Airbus soon too.

The current plug is a 2018-hire, but the future out there doesnít look like a growth story...
