|Quoting Futureualpilot (Thread starter):|
Do airline crews normally see the entire system? Lets say you are a pilot/FA based out of LAX. Would you only see destinations your airline serves to/from LAX, or could you end up going anywhere (aircraft depending of course)? Does it vary by airline? What are the different airlines like?
Every airline is different, at least a little different in almost everything, so my answer is limited to AA
. At AA
, the Simplification Plan eliminated many of the multiple types of acft that visit certain stations to save $$$. No S80 ever visits MIA
. No 738 ever visits ORD
and a host of other cities. If you are holding a "domestic" bid status, you only fly North America. If you hold "international" bid status, you primarily fly only international trips to the division your base flys to/from (i.e. LAX
777I pilots only fly NRT
777I pilots only fly Atlantic & S.America).
