Default The best overnights

I didnít see a thread about this, and I think a lot of future airline pilots would find this interesting.

If youíre currently in a regional post-

1. Your airline
2. The best trips/overnight locations youíve flown to for work

At a certain point they all seem the same. Endeavor flying into NYC is fun though. Expressway visual FTW. And now weíre flying to Havana. I think only Mesa and us fly there.

1. SkyWest
2. Popular ones are SBP, SBA, MRY, if you can get a long SFO or LAX those are good. I had a relatively long EWR and the FO and I explored Manhattan. ASE, EGE (bring your fishing gear), and plenty more.

9E guy says:
- DSM is awesome when they put you downtown.
- LEX has some surprisingly cool restaurants/hangouts in some of the strip malls.
- BTV for Church Street and the lake.
- MHT for the Manchvegas experience. There's even a low rent poker room near the mall.
- Second the Expressway Visual at LGA. Points for the VOR 13L/R at JFK and the Harbor Visual at PWM as well.

OO, downtown BNA is pretty fun. SAT, PHX, AUS, SAN, are good ones too.

It seems like at every airline someone somewhere likes even the worst overnight that everyone else hates. It just depends who you ask.

My favorites in no particular order:
VPS
LEX
BTV
...and as I type this and look at the list of airports I fly to I realize that I could honestly care less if I ever saw one of them again.
