Bored of the plastic airline food? Yes
Bored of the unsociable working hours and night flights? Yes
Bored of the 04:00 starts on those dark winter mornings? Yes
Bored of not being home for Christmas for the third year running? Yes
Bored of the potentially career-ending annual medical checks and 6 monthly sim sessions? Yes
Bored of watching the sunrise from FL390? Bored of a crisp clear approach into Milan or Venice over the Alps? Bored of that feeling lifting a jet into the sky at 150mph?
