Ridiculous pitch

In an airliner, at flight levels in the 350 to 380 numbers, a pitch angle of 10 to 15 degrees IS RIDICULOUS!!!

The usual pitch angle for level flight is between 2 and 3 degrees and the angle for a sustainable climb is one half to one whole degree higher. More performance is not available in an airliner at high level.
