Default Xjet aircraft assignment

I was wondering if Xjet bases all three types at each base. I would be looking to get EWR if hired and would like to know if aircraft assignment would determine the base to which assigned.

All the same aircraft. you fly each version of the 135/145 and may fly each in a single day.

Thanks for the info. Could anyone shed some light on the reserve schedule. How long is the average new hire spending on reserve? How senior must you be to get the long call reserve? Is there a lot of sitting ready reserve? I have been on reserve at two airlines before and don't look forward to it again but it sounds like reserve guys there are flying a lot which makes it better.

Reserve:
EWR: 2-4 mo. (SHORT)
IAH: 3-5 mo. (SHORT)
CLE: 9-15 mo.

Basically your last month on reserve could be a weekends off line or long call. 10% of reserve lines are Long call.

Ready Reserve happens but is not super common. Can not be assigned to you two consecutive days or more than 6 times per bid period. Also can not be assigned afternoon of last reserve day of block. Its 5 hours of ARC to satisfy a day (Airport ready crew).

I did reserve at TSA for one week and with TSA's 10 hour ready reserve and no limit on days, it sucked. This isn't bad and reserve goes fast if not in CLE.

Hope that helps.
