There's also the possibility of successfully bargain days off when you need them, by working one day off when they need You. That can only be a good sign for pilots. I personally don't do off days, not only am I always busy but I try to see it as an act for a greater good. But despite best effort a big part of the workforce act in their own self interest only, and in many cases I cannot really blame them.

This sounds like an employment discussion for a whorehouse, not an airline . . . . . . . in my humble opinion of course.

Exactly...in asia there are more job, more remunerated, qol better, girls (hotter), etc...you go there a while, save money, and you're king of petrol.
who, would like to stay in a cold european country, low pay job ?

I wouldn't agree that the conditions are any better in Asia or the ME, the Ryanair virus has spread throughout the world! There are rumours floating around that some ex Ryanair pilots are leaving EK to go back to Ryanair - that goes to show!

I'm afraid so! I agree! I heard the same actually...
But in some airlines, depiste the conditions, you can multiply your income though...sure you fly a lot, but the objectives to aim are: work a lot, save money (you can save more in asia) and stop working and retire sooner.

EK is not the Eldorado, I'm sure, but you can make much money. And in some asian countries you do not spend as much as in europe.
Let's face it, it is not a dream job at all...I even opened a business, to get out of aviation.
But, now, what do we have as motivation ? only one : money.
The rest : good roster, good terms and conds, good management, lot of days off etc, it becomes rare.
Oh, and we got a nice view...but after a while... Personnally I run after money because it is the only motivation i can find now. It is sad I agree, but it is a motivation like any others.

good luck to all

I just want to make a statement, here seems as good a place as any to make it:

There is currently no Pilot shortage, at any one time I seem to be trying to help around 10 European Pilots get into my company, some employed and some unemployed, all experienced Captains.
