That's probably because you're a douchebag.

If your young, go to the regionals and get hired by a major. Don’t sell yourself short. Don’t think that you don’t deserve it. You DO deserve it!! Screw what some dude letting you ride in his jumpseat thinks of you. Seriously
Can international flying be detrimental to your health? Yes absolutely, if you do not watch yourself. Passenger international flying was way more tiring than ACMI.

With pax it was, commute to work, fly 3 or 4 days in different time zones with very interrupted sleep on aircraft, commute home then repeat in a few days. THAT was hard on my health.

ACMI flying is different. THEY fly you from home. You stay out for in our (K4) case, 16 days. You eat and sleep uninterrupted on nice aircraft. Stay internationally in nice hotels. And work with great people. When done you go home for the remainder of the month.

Pay? We will have quite a few Pilot gross over 500k this year

Treatment? Our Union, and Chief Pilots office work very well together.

Upgrades? Just went to 1 year on certain equipment.

I loved pax flying when I did it. However I am still kicking myself for not coming to ACMI sooner

I am starting to think that K4 should be considered ACMI+
I have two friends at Western Global, they seem to love it, living in Miami. They don't make what we do at K4, but they are home for more time.

6 whole posts to your name and not an element of contribution or value in any of them.

If you insist on consuming oxygen that others might use, make some effort to actually contribute to a conversation. Your failure rate presently is at -6.
