Sure it's 9 on/21 off but ya gotta remember, the first couple of days off are spent just recuperating and getting back on your time zone sleep schedule.

I'm with ya, I tried intl for 4 years and it absolutely trashed me. Once I switched back to NB domestic I was never even remotely as tired as I was doing the Europe/SA stuff.

Intl should really should be done at a younger age. Once you hit your 40s you should ideally start ratcheting down the long haul flying to where you're only flying easy domestic turns your last few years prior to retirement.
I am just the opposite. Been flying mostly across the pond for the last 5 years. Did a couple 3 day Caribbean trips in December. I was absolutely exhausted flying 2 and 3 legs a day, most of it in and out of MIA. YOU CAN HAVE IT! I'll take 5 and 6 time zone 1 leg days, with a 2 hour snooze, any day.

Well the Asia stuff pays enough to where some guys can do 3 3 days a month I think. Here's a screenshot of some of the originating pairings for DFW 787 FO in February.


So it really depends if you're doing Asia, Europe or SA. Also depends what base you're flying out of. For ex PHL 330 intl doesn't have nearly the high time trips.


When PBS comes to all the bases it will mix things up as well.

Furthermore there are so many Red eyes in MIA and LAX might as well do long hauls. I've never been so tired and/or called in fatigue so much in my life. MIA 737.

Is most WB international flying just out and backs? Any round robin/hub-and-spoke type of long trips?

Yea mostly out and back.

The fact that wide-bodies is apostrophed in this title really bugs me, and I went to a state university.

Through these doors walk the world's most grammatically correct pilots.

Okay, fine, maybe I had a few drinks during the super bowl.
