That is very interesting. I’ve never flown heavy jets so I didn’t realise how different it is. On the narrow bodies it’s more like 57kg than 570. In addition to the small cost we get more bang for...

You wouldn’t be trading away any hourly rate. You’d simply be choosing how and when you want to work and lifestyle improvements don’t preclude locking in market rates for the job.
