All pilots are technically based in SFO. They have some virtual bases in LAX, JFK and IAD, but the pairings are all built with Deadheads from SFO to one of the other stations to start and finish the trip with the crew option of not taking those Deadheads. The reason they can do this is because all their manuals are electronic and there is no physical need to actually be in SFO.
There are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count, and those that can't.
