Default Non-domicile with most traffic

Random thought...what do you think, on average, is our highest trafficked airport that's not currently a domicile?

Someplace it's listed I'm sure, but a guess would be BNA, STL or maybe SAN. Someone will know..

From what I remember from the slideshow, I think it's STL.

Just to add to the list above, there are somewhere in the neghborhood of 16 (give or take) RON aircraft in SMF (which is more then OAK). With Hawaii flights starting soon, that could go up. The FA's are about to make SMF a virtual domicile.

What are the odds the pilots get virtual domiciles from the next CBA?

Next to none. Virtual domiciles would cannibalize flying from traditional bases, decreasing open time opportunities and flexibility. Nobody Iíve talked to has an appetite for that. (I donít think itís a bad idea personally)

If Nashville and St Louis became virtual bases they would be extraordinarily senior.

BNA definitely. STL would depend on how many are actually based there. No offense to anyone but Nashville seems to be a much more sought after place to live than St. Louis.

SMF is usually good for 15-20 terminators...
