You still want to work here after all the issues going on at this failure of a company? You must love torture. Youíd be better off working and an AA owned regional and flowing up, youíll probably be a mainline captain sooner.

...said the guy who has apparently never worked anywhere else or read any of the other forums here to find out that pretty much everybody who posts here thinks their airline is, "like, the worst EVAR!" I can tell you that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of pilots out there who would love to have your problems. I'm one of them. You clearly have no idea how good you have it. Let's trade places for a few months and see what you think.

Reminds me of that old YouTube video, "There's always someone out there willing to do your job for less! And JO will find them!"

Please donít come here.. we donít need more yes men and ď happy to have a job/better than my ****ty regionalĒ types like yourself. OCCP can be negative at times but heís right about how bad things are here. Iím guessing your a regional guy (no issues there I was one to) or low end cargo outfit and think AS is a great place to work.. itís not.

Lol!! Some of you have lost touch with reality.

First world problems.

Yea, it can and should be better, but to act as if itís a slave ship? Lol!

Talk to people down in Honduras who make in a year what you make in a day, all while working MUCH harder than you ever will.

Always try to better your lot, but to say or imply your job is awful is almost the definition of disingenuous to those around the world who REALLY work for damn near nothing.

However, I expect nothing less from OCCP, one of the most miserable, negative people Iíve ever seen on this forum.

Time to quit, OCCP. Youíre gonna die young if you donít.

Your counter argument is weak. The fact that the Alaska contract is so bad that you had to compare it to Hondurans is telling.

Okay, we're not starving on the streets. But don't forget for an instant, that there are many, many people who do much better than the best AS pilot.

Your entire philosophy is a slippery slope to lowered expectations and status quo. AS has had way too much of that.

Exactly. A horrible comparison. Yes, most airline pilots in general make decent wages and can afford to enjoy a good living. The previous post comparing us to a 3rd world country, give me a break. We are professional airline pilots that have an enormous responsibility to public safety and security, and we should be treated and compensated as such.. Iím Not disagreeing with the fact that some in other countries face unbelievable hardships and tragedy. Thatís for another debate all in itself.

You aparently skipped past the part where I said things can and should always be improved.

Why be so ****ing miserable? In all the years I worked for a Regional I didnít hate life as much as you and your cheerleading squad of misery seem to at Alaska.

Work to improve it, but maybe you need to re-examine what true suck is before claiming your 6 figure job is horrible.

Btw, I donít work for Alaska , but I have plenty of friends who do work there - on both sides of your house and in both seats - and NONE ***** and moan like itís the end of the world like you folks do. They actually have a grip on reality. They want better, for sure, but they donít obsess on the negative like you folks do.

Nah, you're preaching letting off the gas in a time of incredible uncertainty. That's silly. That's a blueprint for mediocrity and poor quality of life.

And since you don't work for AS, you really don't have a specific idea of what's happening or about to happen. So really all you're doing is commenting on purposely exaggerated emotions on an internet forum. There will always be zealots. You gotta take the bad with the good.
