1: Brand new FO, TRE was a dour, very religious misery who would have been right at home burning heretics. Made me repeat the EFATO about twenty times for no good...

I did longhaul for a number of airlines for nearly 15 years. I'm glad I did it, had lots of fun and saw places that I would otherwise never have seen.

I am also glad that I now fly to AGP and ALC...

That seems to be determined on an individual basis. When I joined I was on 100% from the word go but my sim partner was on 70% and 50% during training. The primary difference between us was prior...

Under the new system that is a minimum of six months after the date of release to line. That is more like a year and possibly more on the 757 if you don't start line training until the winter season....
