What kind of expenses come with opening a new crew base? I'm no expert but it seems to me that it may be kind of stupid for an airline to go from one crew base to four in such a short time.
Well, lets see..
- opening a new maintenance base (also a maintenance facility at RDU
so covers 2 airports in one)... (combined, probably about 50+ daily flights)
- over 70 flights daily...
- large DLConn locations and will probably pick up more routes when they get the E70...previous base..
Expenses.. well, if you compare putting all these crewmembers in a hotel for the night versus them driving up from their house.. opening bases where there is already significant OH
traffic.. I see no expense problem.
I don't see what's the matter...
Aiming High and going far..
