    Still a lot of things in that contract that lacks QOL. Met a few people there...seems the trend is to move on laterally to other regionals, not vertically. You can get jet time everywhere and better pay everywhere. If base is your only factor, do what you gotta do.

    Bases close. Never chose an airline on bases alone.

    I liked your comment only because it validated some of my decisions.

    If PHX is your goal, Compass just announced the opening of a PHX base. If it's another Mesa base then there are a lot of other options.

    I'm a pilot who has been away from flying for a # of years. I'm actually planning on applying to Mesa once I get my BFR/IPC done. Hoping for DFW as well....

    That right there is a really good reason as why not to pick an airline due to bases.

    There are only 2 lines touching Charlotte right now. 4 years ago there would be about 60.

    Not to mention there are no lines in Hawaii or China.

    If DFW is your goal, then make Envoy the regional you really focus on.

    I know everyone in this industry goes on and on about how commuting to work is "soul crushing" etc... But I've been commuting for a few years now and it actually usually means more nights at home for me than if I lived in base because I can bid for and pick up trips with overnights where I live. Just something to think about. Some airlines aren't worth working for even if it means living in base.
