Sounds too good to be true. The only words of that paragraph that even remotely hold true at my job in Southeast Asia is the part about flying a widebody airplane and also a few exotic destinations. And I'm not comparing my job in Asia to a US major airline, I'm comparing it to the regional airline that I flew for. Be careful where you go.
