With a bit more seniority you can get exclusive day flying lines, but theyíll have their drawbacks (holidays, weekends, multiple commutes, etc).

Also donít necessarily discount the night flying, a lot of it can be pretty darn good (Memphis to Tulsa at 4am, hotel by 6 and youíre done for the day).
Only thing I gotta add is we donít fly many US holidays, unless youíre flying international. And not much weekend flying to boot. I have yet to work a holiday in my 3 years here (all on the MD)
