Do your really think that all the negative things discussed in this thread have changed in a little over a month?

Southern - It is what it is. Will never get better. Never has, never will. It will only get worse. Crew shortages mean that life will only get more miserable. I have already been called at home on days off. They attempted to involuntarily assign me a trip that would chew up my remaining 5-6 days off, which would put me right back on the road for the scheduled trip with no break whatsoever. What's to learn in that?

Married? Family? Not after a turn at SAI.

SAI is not ACMI anymore. It used to be fun when it was. Right now it is one contract, constantly going to the same places over and over. 14+ hour legs, which your are not going to get a lot of experience on. It will be a battle to keep current on your landings. What you will learn is how to sleep on an aircraft, how to get minimal rest when you land - maybe. When you do get a chance to get a longer layover in Hong Kong you will learn how to get your freak on in Wan Chai, get p**s drunk, and put your marriage in jeopardy.

When crews meet the first question to each other is "Did you get any sleep?". No joke.

As to the DUI reference - obviously a joke, you know back to that sarcasm thing. Just remember there is always a bit of truth behind a joke. You can read into that whatever way you want, hic!
Don’t lump everyone else into your self induced, pathetic, misery. In the last 6 months you’ve received a substantial raise, improvements in work rules, and in a few more months you’ll be working less days.

Yes, Southern pilots got an increase from the worst contract in the industry to the worst contract in the industry. What I don't understand is why anyone with the worst contact in the industry would be on here actively working against their own pilot group by trying to make it sound like it ain't so bad?

Wow. My post got reported for racism? Lol. It was a jab at the lack of professionalism. Nothing more. Bunch a snowflakes.

Mods, feel free to delete my account from this site. Would hate for anyone else to get offended.

Well that sucks. I can’t find the option in my profile, either. Oh well. Just as easy to not log in anymore, I guess.

And just to clarify to the snowflakes...


Axe: noun
1.
a tool typically used for chopping wood, usually a steel blade attached at a right angle to a wooden handle.
"I started swinging the axe at the lumps of driftwood"
synonyms: hatchet, cleaver; More
2.
INFORMAL
a musical instrument, especially one played by a jazz or rock musician.
verb
1.
end, cancel, or dismiss suddenly and ruthlessly.
"the company is axing 125 jobs"
synonyms: cancel, withdraw, drop, abandon, end, terminate, put an end to, discontinue; More
2.
cut or strike with an axe, especially violently or destructively.
"the door had been axed by the firefighters"


Ask: verb
1.
say something in order to obtain an answer or some information.
"people are always asking questions"
synonyms: inquire (of), query, want to know, question, put a question to, interrogate, quiz, cross-question, cross-examine, catechize; More
2.
request (someone) to do or give something.
"Mary asked her father for money"
synonyms: request, demand, appeal to, apply to, petition, call on, entreat, beg, implore, exhort, urge, enjoin, importune, pray, solicit, beseech, plead with, sue, supplicate; More
noun
1.
US
a request, especially for a donation.
"it was an awkward ask for more funding"


So many pilots are still offended with “your”, “you’re” and “there”, “they’re” and “their” but if someone points out axe vs ask, it’s racist? Hahaha. Pardon me for expecting more professionalism from a profession that claims to be full of professionals. Get over yourselves.

Are you an Atlas pilot? Are you still here? Regionals are hiring. My QOL here is infinity better than the regional I left and so is the pay. For a young dude this place isn’t that bad, and a good place to hang while you wait for purple and brown. YMMV

And just to call you out for the obvious racial undertones in your initial post (which I did not report but was hard to avoid seeing since I'm not blind).

Bet you misuse the word lift, boot, bonnet, trunk, etc. in daily use due to where you were raised you filthy colonial. Mickey Ds is waiting for you... you'll be a great fit.

Maybe he was referring to his favorite body spray?
