Yeah they do. But from his post of his trip sheet he is based in Saint Louie. No Mesa crews based there. I know TSA is there, but maybe he is a Chautauqua ERJ FO. They also have a crew base there flying American Connection.
The more I find out about Chautauqua the more I like it. Seems like a very decent place to work.
He's refering to travel from home to work/domicile. He's not getting paid to commute to work. For example, he has to report at 7:00 am in Atlanta but there are no flights that day and the soonest he can get there, for free ie jump seat, is to leave the day before at 3:00 pm. I'm sure there are other trips where he can fly in that day and there is no lost time.
Correct me if I'm wrong
I was wrong once but thats when I thought I was wrong.
I usually have 18 days off in 28, including commuting, because I'm really senior. I'm about to go to training on a different plane, so I'll only be getting 8 days off in 28, then. No time to go home with only two days off, so I plan on being away from home for six weeks.
