Because people didn't fly as often, there wasn't a demand for as many pilots.
Now that you can get a plane ticket for cheaper than a bus pass, more people fly. More people flying means more pilot positions. Without cheap tickets, not as many people fly......catch my drift?
yours is a ridiculous statement.

yea more pilot positions with payscales like yours. could you even support a family with your pay.

if oil continues to rise will you take a pay cut so that the customer doesn't have to pay more.

more people are flying now then before 9-11, but I'm sure your happy with $35 hour payscales.
