I live in a small base with two options. I can count on one finger the number of times that I've needed a hotel in base before or after a trip. The biggest benefit is having multiple options leaving stupid early from home, so I can bid for trips that other commuters can't safely commute same-day.

A lot of pilots seem to hate commuting. Commuting isn't bad if you don't spend your days off commuting, and having two airlines makes that a lot easier.

Except when you have to Walk from B22 to L20!

I just got hired at SKW and am trying to decide which base to bid for. Iíll be moving to wherever I get based. Any recommendations on whether I should choose ORD or MSP and why? Those are my 2 favs that are junior.

Seems like youíve never done it. When the last flight out is at 8:20pm on the UA side and at 8:25pm on the AA side is a nice little run

You should be able to get ORD out of training but plan on sitting reserve. The shortest wait for a line will be DTW. MSP might be 6mo to 9mo for a line now. Just my thoughts looking at where new hires are going. Should see a lot of movement in the next 6mo. Best of luck
