They’ve cut pilot’s wages continuously for 10 years and there’s STILL a shortage. Who can figure?

The airline industry is one of feast or famine. In a former life, I flew long haul international freight, very brutal schedules. With the time zone changes (my personal best is 46 in a five day period) one could see their fellow plots age before your eyes. My job went away after 9/11/01 and there was nothing there for some time. I had to move on. To get current now would cost a great deal of money, with little guarantee of a position. The position simply is not as appealing as it used to be, I don’t see it improving anytime soon.
