Wouldn't have expected to see LGA be senior for *anyone*...

I would not have expected ORF to be a crew base for ZW. Does anyone have info on that base (when, why) it was chosen?
|Quoting apodino (Reply 6):|
Sure do, ORF is ZWs second biggest MX facility (Behind PHL) and as a result overnights several aircraft in ORF. Because of all the RON's that they have in ORF, it is more economical to the company to maintain a crew domicile in ORF rather than overnight a bunch of crew members in hotels. ORF has been a ZW domicile ever since the US flying started back in 2005.
|Quoting apodino (Reply 4):|
However a lot of people agree that the people based in ORF are arguably among the most pleasant people to work with out of any crew domicile.

How about domestic widebody trips?
I am thinking like MIA-JFK-MIA on a 767 or 777 thats a days work leave in the morning back at night. I would think they go senior? Any info?
|Quoting WNCrew (Reply 18):|
at WN we all tend to do the same KIND of flying. You can't bid into or out of any specific aircraft type so we all pretty much work whatever. I like low-legs and decent pay. All that boarding and deplaning when we're NOT paid is exhausting, but we do flu service on all flights (we try) and it's just too much. Everyone thinks we do a lot of legs in a day... sometimes, but for me, I can say it's been about 4yrs since I've worked more than 5 legs in a day.

A lot of regional FA Unions would love to have workrules like you describe.
