One of the reasons I choose aviation proffesion was that I wouldn't be at home all the time and see places

It would not surprise me if there are smaller operations that require pilots to live in base, but I don't know of any big US carriers that do.

Well since your profile says you are a student between 21-25 years old, I'm not surprised. At that age it's normal to want to see new things. When you are 20 years older, have a family, have sick parents, a home to maintain, and numerous other responsibilities, you will likely feel differently. If you think this is an easy lifestyle you are in for a surprise. I've been (mostly) everywhere, and there's no place I would rather be than at home at the end of any flight.

I believe Emirates requires that crew live in Dubai. They provide free quarters there, although I'd imagine that married crew with families would want their own homes.

Obviously commuting is very widespread, but isn't it kind of risky? What happens when a flight becomes overbooked and therefore a crewmember is stranded in, say, ROC and misses the flight they are working out of JFK??? Do airlines actually offload paying passenger to get crew to the start of their shift?
