Both are a choice (vice a need) in my case: commuting and the 4th stripe. Couldnít be happier with either decision😎

How often do you get beat up on reserve in IAH? How many red eyes do you do? I can hold CA IAH but Iíve heard horror stories.

1. A lot of commutes arenít bad, to me living somewhere I donít want to be like Jersey is nuts. 2. With aggressive pick up and the new reserve rules a lot of guys do just as well as jr line holders.

IAH as a base is terrible. The red eyes to IAH are the worst across the whole system. An IAH reserve gets abused. I wouldn't wish IAH, as a CA or FO, on anyone (that's senior to me)

You donít have to live in jersey. There are plenty of amazing, diverse places to live within a couple hours of EWR.

There are reasons to live there. Cost of living is top of the list. I was there for a year and a half but left in 2014. I didnít like the flying or the area but wonít disparage anyone if thatís what they want. Your $$ goes twice as far there as EWR, 3x as LAX, and 5x as SFO.
