Default Swa Las

Forgive me if I missed a thread on this topic.

How senior did LAS end up and how did it shake up the seniority in the other domiciles?

For junior FOs, LAS shifted everyone west. OAK is still the most junior base, as most newhires are going there, but a few got LAS for November. Also a few FOs got to trickle back East. With the slowdown of new hire classes, I feel for anyone coming online now that doesn't live West of the Rockies, as it may be a while before he or she can hold anything other than OAK, LAS, or PHX.

JMHO

So I take it that PHX may be going a bit more junior now? How 'bout BWI? That's my preference once I get thru training.

When you talk seniority of domiciles, how does that work for a junior FO in regard to keeping his domicile of choice?

Say I want BWI and at some point actually get it, can I get bumped out of it on the next bid by somebody senior? Or can you only bid into a domicile when there is an opening?

Once you are in that base, you cannot be bumped out by someone senior to you. There is an exception though. You can get displaced if a new base opens and not enough people sign up to originally staff it. This just happened with Vegas, and should work itself out over the next few months.

Haven't heard. If they start in Jan again, then I would assume some with 3 and some with just 2. Worst case scenario for you would be August-September.
