Not all pax growth is good for pilots, if you can't get a job there!
All the growth is in Asia and the middle east, which is great if you're a very experienced jet pilot and are interested in moving to China or Qatar, but it's not a place for newbies. The USA is a closed shop for US citizens. The only European airports on the list are the secure fortresses of the big legacy airlines (Heathrow, Charles-de-Gaulle, Frankfurt) and let's be honest you have more chance to win the Euro Millions than you do to get a job with BA, Air France or Lufthansa right now. Even more so if you're a non national.
You could even make a very strong argument, that an increase in passenger numbers in a place like Dubai or Singapore, what you're actually seeing is one less passenger that would probably have flown on a European airline 20 years ago.
