Airline Crews [pilots/FAs] are "based" at a certain city i know that. But must they be based at one of that airlines hubs? Or can they be based any where they fly?

i would think it depends on the airline and the economics of airline operations. i cannot really speak for the u.s. but for example:

air canada and winnipeg, manitoba.
air canada has a pilot base and f/a base here but winnipeg is not a hub by any means nor is it really strategic for air canada.
the ecomonics of having pilots fly in and out of winnipeg and the expence of overnighting crews where crews can merely return to base at the end of the day and start again the next day.

not sure if this is a good answer or not.

Generally speaking, all hubs are domiciles (crew bases), but not all domeciles are hubs. For example, until recently AA had a pilot domecile in San Diego, but SAN has never been an AA hub. Likewise, AA has a domecile at SFO and at LGA for both pilots and flight attendants, but neither of these are hubs.
