Allright #^#%%#%#%!
I've had it! Let's just get the whole ordeal in this entire industry overwith. Why don't you CEOs outsource pilot labor like everything else in this country and pay .05 on the dollar to fly 50, 70, and 90 seat RJs to friggin Europe. That will allow more than enough expendable cash to line your pockets with while you run your respective companies you "manage" into the friggin floor. If you pay .10 you might even get the lav changed and $%#^ thing parked by the same people flying it!!! That will keep the large Christmas bonuses intact while energy costs continue to rise! Meanwhile you can watch that oil stock go through the roof! Hey you're set!! And don't worry about a thing because your boyhood cronies are probably the same people that are running this country! Sorry folks.. Just had to vent... Ahhhhh... much better....

Yeah!

I am out of this ASAP. I have over 5 years with a regional and I still don't have any control over my life. I am not going to be one of the ones that sit back at take it up the you know what.

All you new hires need to pay attention!!! It all sounds like some dream to you right now, but you wait until a few years from now and you want to buy a house and start a family. Good luck on this pay.

I have not run across anyone lately happy to be in the airlines and that goes for the new hire that has been here for a year or less. Even they are now complaining. Especially when they are trying to pay down that large school debt. No family or house in their near future.

If I could do it over, I would not get in this business.

I love time off too much for an office job. Only having 2 days off a week would kill me. Perhaps the only alternative would be starting my own business, but since I am single I am alright where I am for now. My airline is pretty decent to work for though.

Judging from the accents I hear on the radio, they already have...

Does the sugar momma have a sister??! lol Because currently I live in Deetoilet which makes the situation that much better. Because apparently up here it is permissible to be 400 lb, and not shave your legs for a week. Makes hibernating in this eskimo weather much easier.

Why don't you go back down south where the winters are warmer and "apparently" it is "permissible" for YOUR sister to be your sugar momma?

Two days off a week is all I get with 5 days on, 3 days off and a commute from west to east coast that uses up my last day off. With an office job, at least i'd get to sleep in my own bed each night, and i'd have weekends and holidays off. Doesn't sound too bad to me...

I don't think I could do it if I commuted. Why not move?

With just over 2 years with my company, I have a house (admittedly, in about the cheapest market in the nation) wife, baby, and an average of 15 days off/month.

I'm not saying this industry is perfect, but for those of you just starting out, there are some options out there.

You can't commute from the west coast to the east coast with an office job.

All pilots senior to me should quit and get a real job somewhere else.

Does a trailer in "Bama" qualify as a house?

What a nice, condescending stereotypical statement, Redmeat. Do you have any other comments or revelations about the south that we should all know about?

The only problem with that is, usually men marry down in age and women marry up in money. You can find em that make more than you, but just remember, when you are sleeping at the motel 5 nights in a row, she's exposed to other professionals that make more money than you. Not only that, some of them career women are real good at reading the newspapers.

Please don't encourage the yankee. We have enough dam(n) yanks living here already. We don't need anymore.

dixieflyer,

Judging from Winged Sig 599's post he isn't a "yankee"

He doesn't like our "400 pound hairy women" and our cold winters.

He probably misses the skinny girl's from the "hollers" back home.

He is one of your own.
