Although his fleet has an extensive Caribbean network, time off and trip bid choices rarely awarded, with only a couple of Caribbean trips ln last year or so.
It also appears seniority not apparent in B787 course progression, as more junior pilots allocated at random.
With such a seemingly poor rostering system, sickness seems the only way to regulate stress and fatigue at the moment.
donít join then. the people I know there are happy with their lot. Yep, things could be better but it seems a much happier place to work than other Carriers, UK and abroad.

I donít actually understand your post? Are you just mud-slinging or have you just failed an interview and now hoping people agree with your post in the hope of justifying your failure?
