Default List of bases by FO reserve time?

Any kind of list showing the most junior lineholder or something similar? I've got a decent idea of which bases go senior/junior, but data on exactly(ish) how long I will be on reserve at a given base would be very helpful.

Much thanks.

Stuff like this changes constantly, there’s no point in speculating reserve times. Literally once you get done with training, that base you chose for the very short reserve time in indoc is now a year to get a line that’s how fast things change.

What about in LGA doesn’t that always go really junior? Is it possible in LGA to hold a line straight out of training or very soon thereafter?

Can you pick up trips on reserve?

If a reserve wants to fly a lot to minimize time sitting on call is that possible?

Can you pick up trips out of base as a line holder?

Does Republic have PBS or hard lines of time?

If you are able to bid a new base. One different from your class assigned base during initial training, can you go directly to your newly awarded base after training or do you still have to go to your initial base assigned in training?

Thanks in advance.

LGA is usually on the junior side.

Yes you can pick up trips on reserve.

On reserve you’ll only be able to fly what you’re assigned. Unfortunately, YX’s reserve system is not based on seniority like the rest of the industry and there’s no way to say “hey choose me first.”

Yes, you can pick up trips out of another base as a line holder or reserve.

Once you are awarded a new base you won’t actually touch that base for 4 months.

Can you expand on that a bit? What makes it better or different than other companies?

Based on my understanding, it's a "first-in, first-out" system. As in the reserve pilot who finished their last flight before the other reserve pilots finished their last flights will be first called, although it seems that this isn't strictly followed.

No, there is not point. It is always changing.

Priority goes something like this’
a. LCR, Proactive Pick-Up; then
b. LCR, Bucket System, FIFO; then
c. Any LCR; then
d. SCR, in Base, Bucket System, FIFO, then
e. Any SCR.

Bucket is this;
Reserve Pilots shall fall into the bucket that
equates to the amount of Reserve Days
remaining in said Pilot’s Reserve sequence.
Example: One Pilot has four Days left in his
available Reserve sequence. He shall be
placed into the four day bucket. That
Reserve Pilot shall be assigned a four-day
Assignment before any Reserve Pilot that is
in any other bucket, provided that the
Report Time is compatible with the RAP
time.

So if you and another pilot have 2 reserve days left and a two day pairing has to be covered, the first that was off duty time/date wise will get the assignment. (Generally, there’s a lot of “wiggle” room)
