If you worked there because of a weak industry and there was nothing else I understand. If you didnít, then that speaks volumes of your evaluation skills.

You worked for Western Global Airlines?

You're a "douche" because of what you type, and your attitude. It has nothing to do with your career failures.

The best part of ACMI is that many times I did not know where my next adventure was taking me. Not every place was a garden spot on the planet... true. However, we always made the best of where ever we went. Sometimes we had to observe State Department protocols as it related to security. Although most times is was an all expense paid vacation. Ground handlers, in most destinations, took good care of us as far as what to see, and reputable saloons to visit. Made a lot of friends along the way in many locations.

Yeah we had mechanical issues on the road, especially in places where we’d rather not be, however we all leant a hand with the PFE to get the jet out in one piece. I guess years back there was more camaraderie than today, while still today, the less desirable spots do exist.

Yeah the pay wasn’t the greatest. Yeah the hotels weren’t 7 star. Yeah the jets weren’t shiny and new.... But I wouldn’t trade the ACMI experience I had. Great flying experience.

As above... you're a douche because of what you write. It's one thing if you had problems with an individual company, it's another when you try to attack an entire sector of the industry; most ACMI pilots these days enjoy excellent pay and MX, and QOL is subjective.

Not at all, and it's "too," brightspark.

Given your inability to offer intelligent, meaningful contribution in any way, shape or form, and your ongoing waste of bandwidth, this is much easier:

I agree.
Home basing
Keeping all air miles
Keeping hotel points
Never crashpading
Being able to get a almost a month off simply by creative bidding without using any vacation time

A few ACMIís are the best kept secret in the industry in my opinion. K4, Omni & now WGA
