This problem is a serious bummer. I have to side with DL after seeing the wages these guys are demanding. Let's face it, being a pilot is an absolutely cream puff job. Look at executives making similar money and then compare lifestyles. Being an airline pilot is EASY. Fly,rest 3 days, fly, off 5 days, fly, rest 3 days etc etc. I mean who are we kidding here. I guess they get paid for that one crucial moment which may come up once in thirty years where they really have to know their stuff. In the real world, this happens every day. And to boot, we only get 2-3 weeks off per year. Unless of course you're a lucky nationality lotto winner and you get to be European with the 6 week deal. Oy ve.
