$50-70+ per day in per diem? I like the discounts too, don't get me wrong. But it's not like we're totally on our own dime for every layover.

Because the 50% of us that didn’t come up through the military came up through $12,000 flying jobs only to be blessed with a $22,000 regional airline job. Cheapness is survival.

If the same 2 air Canada pilots were flying strobes would be useless
