what is wrong with banana?

So here is the skinny to all those budding pilots, join if you:

-think turboprop, commercial license pilots know more than exhausted, 15 year ATP wide-body pilots
-like flying 115 hrs a month
-enjoy 6-7 days off a month
-appreciate min rest of 16hrs between flights
-enjoy 4 sector days
-expect no promised leave for 3 yrs running
-remember no pay rise for 5 yrs in light of 10% annualized inflation
-want to call sick and lose days off
-report sick less than 2 hrs before flight and get deducted 1800 aed
-ever call sick and lose command opportunity
-are willing to wait 7 years for command
-think of limitations as targets
-enjoy bidding for 7 options and getting 1
-being told to be reasonable and expected to bend duty rules

What kind of lunatics are watching the ship sink with 50 experienced pilots leaving a month and the only improvement is early roster publication??

desert bob,

While I agree with what you say, were you on an overdose of muscle relaxants when you named the thread?

Last month had 31 days... So it theoretically should have been on the 15th this month. Especially as bidding closed over a week ago!

Yeah but Feb is a bit of an anomaly and bidding didn't close three days earlier so I wouldn't expect it to be out on the 15th...
