What a load of garbage! The short haul charter Business model has pilots home almost every night. Unless you have exercised your choice to fly the B787 which operates longhaul - then you will be away from home. Typically 2 nights away and then 3 days off. But it may be longer if you go eastbound. At present there is a list as long as your arm to get on the 787, so anyone who really doesn't like being away can easily transfer back onto the 737/757 and be at home most nights.
