Funny how the happy guys in LCCs like to insult the guys who see the wood for the trees. Those people in LCCs who are content are, in my experience, either new, naive or of weak mentality and pathetically grateful for every crumb thrown their way. It is the last of these three types that play lackey to the management and undermine the rest of the pilots, and are the line pilots most complicit in the slide in conditions.

I think Bokken has said his piece in a very reasonable manner. This is not the industry it was ten years ago, let alone 20 or 30. If you have an alternative method of earning a comparable amount (and do check the latest figures - FR skippers now on a basic of 30-odd K - trainee train drivers earn more), then keep it and just fly for fun on your weekends.
