Hi I'm wondering my future Sailor is going to an Aschool in another state. I know the usually use O'HARE airport but At what time do they usually put them on a plane to leave for A-school? do they consider the hours of the trip? Or they just get the cheaper ticket for them?
First, read the section on flying, located here: http://navyformoms.com/group/bootcampmoms/page/liberty-during-pir-w...
Keep in mind that there are hundreds of new Sailors flying out of multiple airports, on different airlines, to 15+ A school locations. There is no single time they are all put on a plane.
There are two important things you can count on:
1) The Navy is going to do its best to get new Sailors on the earliest flights possible.
2) You won't know the details of your Sailor's travel plans until after PIR.
You have to be flexible.
