Question About F/A Bases

Wed Feb 28, 2007 6:19 am

I have a friend that was just recently accepted to start training as a flight attendant for CO. He asked me if he was sent to either IAH, CLE, or EWR as a base, would CO require that he have to reside their or is he able to keep his residence where he lives now and just fly to the base when he is working or on reserve?

Thanks in advance for anyone who can provide me with some information on this.

I think something like 70% of EWR based CO FA's live outside of the EWR area. But on the days he's on reserve, and wasnt able to pick up trips, he has to be able to get to EWR within 2 hours. Living far away, at least for the first few years, would be hard, because the junior crew end up being called up all the time!
