Considering he is a FO with NA
, could it be possible that he is a furloughed US pilot and is holding a grudge against everyone in the company? I don't know the comparison in pay between US and NA
and I'm pretty sure there isn't much of a pay difference, but if he is making lower pay at NA
, starting over at the bottom of the seniority list, and not being able to fly within the US and be closer to home, he may be pissed.
Personally, I have never met a charter pilot who didn't prefer their job to anywhere else. Its not the same routine sked over and over. You fly to various places, see more exotic locales, almost always international destinations, and you never know where your gonna end up.
I don't have a microwave, but I do have a clock that occasionally cooks shit.
