Hey 411, I believe you speak like that because you got the boot from a major. Was it TWA or AA?
Better check your six again, Krueger, never worked (nor applied) to any of 'em.
As it was, slid into the LHS of a B707 well under 30 ....all flying accomplished offshore since 1970....in Command.

Has the airline flying business gone downhill, since then?
Yup, sure has.
Have to laugh at the young'uns, moaning will do absolutely no good, whatsoever.
Think I'm wrong?
Dial up your airline CEO, and ask.
Prepare for an earfull of bad news.

So all the airlines ' d swimm in the gold by pushing the workers to the edge .
Let keep a bunch of CEO , keep them awake all the night, and let them rest 8 hours and back to office dealing with critical decision for a week .
Next week put them in a bus at 2 in the morning bring them 300 km away let the boys work 14 hours and then bring the guys back to home.
The 3th week they f...k up the company.

Strangely enough, our CEO is awake more than most of our pilots now...18-20 hours/day, minimum.
He does his share.

More than most, I expect.

Next question?

411A, are you telling us that your CEO works his a$$ off and actually gives a monkey about his employees? Sleeps for 4 hrs a day?
If so, PM me with his personal e-mail please, if he cares about people so much, shirley he will offer me a job since he's the Aviations' Messiah.

Come on dhalin', give us a break, teleport yourself back to the real world where real pilots and CC hate management, Rostering, Crewing and OPS with a passion but we put up with it because it pays the bills and because we're better people than the majority in the above departments.


PS: If you ever decide to give up flying (that's if you are indeed flying for a living), i suggest you start doing Stand Up Comedy; you made me laugh, that's for sure!
