Some good points from PilotLZ and bringbackthe80's.

It always bugged me that we pilots and crew were sudsidising our passengers' cheap tickets by accepting the rosters and conditions we had, while our CEOs and senior managers were raking in their million pound salaries while sound asleep at 0500 when we were already at work. We should all have gone on strike for better rosters.

I used to have very little trouble sleeping at odd times and then getting up at 0400 to get ready to drive to work - I ate a healthy diet, kept fit and took regular exercise. I fitted black-out blinds to the bedroom and got headphones for Mrs Uplinker to watch the telly (in the lounge) while I was sleeping.

But, after a year of not flying, I don't miss those earlies or those rosters !

Same old problem with a job where it’s someone’s “ dream “, the fact they will do anything to get a foot in the door means they will trample their granny for an opportunity ,let alone their colleagues.

Thus you never have full team think even with a union .
