Pilot Bases At Las?

Sun Apr 07, 2002 5:29 am

How many flight crew bases are there at LAS?

I am wondering if SWA, National and America West all have flight crew bases?

National and America West do. United has a Flight Attendant base there as well. Initially I was going to say WN does not, but now I am contradicting myself. I know WN has BWI, PHX, DAL, MDW, and OAK. I don't think they use LAS, but don't take my word for it.

United also bases pilots out of here.

Omni International, ATA (unless it's closed) also have crew bases here.

Pilot bases for WN are BWI,MDW,MCO,HOU,DAL,PHX and OAK.
LAS base has been a strong rumor for quite a while. Lots of people think it could happen in 2003.

West Coast Pilot Bases:

Anchorage - Alaska, Fedex, Northwest
Honolulu - Continental, Northwest, United, Hawaiian
Los Angeles - Alaska, American, Delta, United, Hawaiian
Oakland - Southwest
Ontario - UPS
Phoenix - America West, Southwest
Portland - Horizon
Seattle - Alaska, Northwest, United, Hawaiian
San Francisco - American, United, Hawaiian
Salt Lake City - Delta

This data may be a little suspect because it is over a year old.

>>>"United also bases pilots out of here [LAS]."

Um, if they do, it's a new one on me.
------------------------------------------------------

Also, the only America West crew base that I know of is the one in PHX.

HNL and SEA are no longer crew bases for UAL. They are closed.

Theoretically, Guam is west of Denver (and part of the US) it is a base for CO.

Subic Bay (PI) is also a pilot base (I think) for FEDEX. Good Libbo/cheap San Migoos.

For NW, SEA is very very very very senior (except for FE's on the whale).
