wont you fly long haul flights at night somwhere else ? This is part of the job , we all made a choice to be pilots from the beginning and this is part of it
With the greatest respect DZ, until you have flown the rosters and the hours we do here you have no idea. The mixture of East-West, LH SH, compounded by 90 hours a month is ridiculous. Yes we did make a choice to become pilots but the ground has changed under our feet. When I joined I was doing 65-70 hrs a month, had a life outside work and felt rested. That has all gone, money is the only thing that keeps me here now, and that is a great shame.
