No problem my friend. Good luck to you where you land.

Default Commuting from KSEA

My captain did the commute. Always commuted a day early. Said he got a seat on Alaska a lot. Always flyís Thursday ish till Monday to commute easier. Gets the middle seat or jump seat about once a month.

You donít know me and I donít expect you to believe me, but iím going to save you a LOT of pain if you take my advice.

Do not try to live anywhere west of the Rockies and commute to Republic. Take it from someone who did it for five years; you will be miserable.

Iím not saying that Republic is a bad place to work or that Seattle is a bad place to live, but doing both is mutually exclusive.

This. I used to do a "soft" two leg commute (one, maybe two trips per month) that would take almost all day, and that was bad enough. I don't know how some guys manage to do this all the time.

Probably worth waiting for Compass or Horizon.... Republic is a great company. But SEA was my hardest commute..
