""We in Europe are lucky, as airlines employ pilots from their own schools who have just minimum hours (~200h).""
I wouldn't call it lucky. Building time here is half the fun. You meet many people, fly many different aircraft, and fly to more places. I would even suggest the training is better. Why do I say that? Well, pilots here receive more training before they are hired, their training/flight building experiences are more varied, the aviation scene is richer, and our training is not as rushed as the carrier's own "ab initio" programs. Yes, we DO have a handful of airline ran ab initio programs here in the U.S., but I have heard very little good, if any, about them at all.
Sorry, I guess all that is for an entirely different thread, but I just couldn't stop rambling. Forgive me if you find what I said above deeply offensive, but that is just how I see things.
As for me...I will enjoy flying Boeings...
