BWI,DAL,MCO,MDW,OAK,LAS, ( ATL?), HOU, and PHX. Not sure which one is the biggest but I would imagine DAL is probably the more senior of the bases, could be wrong though.

Are there still FA's from the earliest days of Southwest in 1970?

I believe PHX is extremely senior. I believe BWI is the most junior.

We began in 1971, and we do still have a few original Flight Attendants flying with us.

MDW is the largest base . BWI is most junior followed by LAS and maybe MDW. DAL is very senior and it is also the smallest base. To compare, MDW has roughly 1700 FA's while DAL has a little over 900. My base, MCO, has roughly 950 making us the second smallest base!

Somehow I will resist the urge to quote our candid WN pilot who broadcast his opinions about the FA bases via a stuck mic....

I saw on another forum that TPA will be a post-intergration WN 717 flt ops base within the next 18 months or so. I assume a FA base will follow??

TPA has been announced as a possible 717 base for pilots. Because all FA's will be trained on all aircraft, there is no need to have a separate 717 base for FA's. A FA's pairing can consist of a flying on both the 737 and 717, whereas pilots need separate pairings and lines depending on the aircraft they fly.
