Any of the former Northwest/Delta hubs (ATL, DTW, MSP, JFK/LGA) may be tough commute because there may be a number of crew members doing it. As flight attendant, you can't sit in the cockpit jumpseat so that reduces your chances of getting to work.
After 8+ years of commuting, if it were me, I'd move to a base I can afford to live in, and get back to MEM on my days off when possible. Commuting to work is not fun.

I have a quick question for those of you that are more knowledgeable about flights in and out of MEM than myself at this point.
I have offers as a flight attendant from Skywest, Mesa, and Republic......which one would give the best opportunity to get in and out of MEM to my domicile? I understand I may have to make more than one flight to get to my domicile, as it's not awarded until after training. Just trying to figure out which of the 3 has the most service in MEM, regardless of destination.
I have to decide within a week so any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Now to figure out which of the two are more stable......I'm leaning Skywest just bc of their structure, background, and forecast. But we all know how quickly a company can turn, especially in the airline industry. I really am intrigued by Republic as well.....just hope I make the right decision by next week, as this is my future!

But I've always been one to folllow my dreams and goals, and this is my career goal. Republic seems to be the best bet, but I love Skywest's structure, background, and the amount of planes and routes they have ..... one of those hard life decisions!
