DZ. I still fly Long Haul. What EK does is not LH. It does LH, MH, & SH. There is no break, and no consistency. It is pure exhaustion and FATIGUE. Where I am now, I do trips, but get enough of a break to catch up my sleep. And I get AL which then allows me to get back to 'normal.' What I am saying is If you join EK, you will not know what 'normal' is again until after you leave.
