The first one was about CO-DOMICILES, and which didn't involve a deadhead since it was about the pilot's own commute from home to work. Since he had two bases assigned, it was on him to commute to/from work NO MATTER HOW FAR AWAY OR HOW LONG IT TOOK.
The second, the same essentially. The person was hopping on a company provided ride to get to work an hour away, ie, the START OF HIS DEADHEAD commute on a commercial airline. He wasn't being forced to take the transportation, and would have commuted himself since that was the start location of his work. IOW, it was not a "designated" co-domicile for him, but it was, in-fact, a co-domicile in every day considerations. That was a CHOICE for the pilot to ride along or drive himself, to start his assignment.
A requriement to "live within one hour of the base" has nothing to do with it being "local in nature" since a drive to/from the base, even if 2 hrs, is a pilot's commute responsibility, not the company's responsibility to provide the travel!
Wow, you've made a total misunderstanding of that!
