WHAT DOES ORDSW MEAN? WHAT ARE ALL OF THE BASES? DOES IT MEAN CHICAGO BASED F/A CAN ONLY FLY TO THE SOUTHWEST?

At United every empoloyee has a company address. The address is the airport which that person works at, and then a two letter department code. The department codes carry over to each airport. All flight attendants have there base city+SW. The SW is the flight attendant office/base.

Exapmples would be:
SFOMM-Line maintence at SFO
SFOOV-SSR Maintence
SFOOW-Scheduled Maintence
SFOSW-Flight Attendants at SFO
SFOFO- I believe that this the Pilot office

I'll try to find out more of the codes for you.

BTW. London is a crew base too, as well as santiago, and Hong Kong or Tokyo (i'm not sure, but i know that they have an asia base)

Here are all of the Flight Attendant Bases:
SEASW
SFOSW
LAXSW
PHXSW
LASSW
DENSW
ORDSW
IADSW
JFKSW
EWRSW
BOSSW
MIASW
HNLSW
LHRSW
CDGSW?
STOSW Is STO Santiago's code?
HKGSW

Hope that helps

In addition to ILUV767's list, don't forget PHL, NRT (Tokyo), TPE (Taipei), and FRA (Frankfurt). These are all FA bases as well.

Fly777UAL - I think SIN and BKK bases are staffed differently since those are non-union F/As.
