I understand the need for cheap pilots during hard economic times, and I'm not really going to argue that. But the question is when the economy is back to normal and recovered, will there be an end to flexi crew and airlines doing their best to get pilots as cheap as possible? Probably not.

In that letter it sounded to me like they were indirectly saying that flexi crew will become the norm one day and pilots can enjoy crap pay and will be released when they're not needed. Surely there's no way that can happen, how will people survive for food?

Am I hopeful in saying I hope the future of pilots returns to some normality? I don't mean sponsorships or it becoming easy to get a job but when one does get a job they are paid above minimum wage and aren't told to go away during winter.

I wish I could see the future.
