Default LAS domicile

Curious about estimates to hold Vegas for a new-hire.

I know OAK has traditionally been the junior domicile, but wondering about LAS for a friend.

Thanks,

Gup

Default Domiciles

Iíve been asking around and it seems most FOs are getting what they bid after a few months. Only exceptions seems to be Orlando and Atlanta

DEN is even harder nowadays. The most junior FO is 1 year on property, and with negative numbers every vacancy it's harder to get than ATL or MCO. That may change in the fall again.

Denver should swing back to a well under a year soon. Additional gates being added and I believe company saying it will be the biggest base sometime in the near future.

I was hoping to hold Phx before a year lol. I start Aug 6th, but looks like that may be the wait ugh! Hopefully I can hold LAS after a few months until Phx comes available

That landscape may change quite a bit between now and fall when you finish IOE and the consolidation month. OAK commute wasnít too terrible and LAS was pretty easy. At least youíll know thereís an end point to it unlike someone signing up to commute the whole career.
