    QFT! If I were to, for example, work at Commutair in CLE, the drive time to my home would be about six hours. I recently flew back to my house in PA (near ABE), and door to door took me about eight hours. Flying time was around six hours, while transit time took me about two. So yeah, if you can find a job within driving distance, that's the better way to go.

    Okay, I gotta ask (since I've seen you write it a couple times..) - What does "QFT" means?

    I've thought about commuting, but I'd only do it on a WEEKLY basis. I'm not even sure I want to do that. I think I'll visit my house one or two times a month while probation lasts. When it ends, I'll worry about moving...

    Any Idea which ones do not have commuting clauses in their dispatch contracts?

    Actually, I've never heard of a commuting clause in a dispatch contract.

    9E has one, although the person who fought for that is now elsewhere, so I’m not sure if that will be negotiated on any future contracts.
