Professional GTA V Pilot
I've never flown a 25 leg 4-day. Not even close. The legs honestly aren't that far off the 175, especially with your seniority being able to hold probably all -700/-900 flying.The “other” airplane almost exclusively flies 25-leg 4-day trips that credit 17-19 hours, with 9-10 days off per month. I’ll never be qualified to move “up” to a major, so can you tell me why I should drive myself to an early grave with stress and exhaustion? With that said, I am gently considering upgrading to the CRJ to ATL and moving with my family back near my parents in Florida. I'd be 30% CRJ CA there, but looking at the line awards of those around my seniority, it's all 10-11 days off, can't drop anything ever. Throw in all the creative "interpreting" going on lately, and I'm pretty meh on the whole thing. LGA as a commute looks like an unmitigated nightmare.
Are you implying that I have a responsibility to upgrade? If so, to whom? To me? To the airline? To aviation as a whole?
But if you're gonna go to ATL, then don't throw all of the CRJ pairings in the bin. ATL pairings are the worst this company has. So all of this seems to contradict itself.
