Late 20's huh? You're bored because you don't appreciate it. You haven't seen the worst of this business yet. Have a little gratitude there junior.

I'm mid-forties and part of that "lost decade" where the only folks hiring were basically fractionals and low-end charter companies. The airlines were trickle hiring but rare.

I think it's time you create another account. You weren't hired at United and I highly doubt you went to any university.

Your just envious. There is no need to lie on an anonymous forum where none of us will ever meet. Maybe this forum means a lot to you and consumes your entire life. You should try getting some pu$&y. It's good for your health.

Quite the conceit and chutzpah there, mate. Hopefully you survive it.

As for whether it gets better, that may be subjective, but I've been flying for a wee bit longer than you, and I can say that it's gotten far better in the long run, and it continues to do so.

Your comments are reflective of a very low time regional f/o with no other experience; I very much doubt you're at United. Perhaps you count code sharing. Your posts smack of a great deal of immaturity. Your opinion of yourself may well exceed reality.

--just noted the poster to whom I replied has since been banned. Ah, well.

Ask those who got out if they want back in.

Count me as a 'No' if we're starting a poll.

I personally think being worth a bit less than my counterparts come reirement age is worth the time I will have spent watching my children grow up. All that money may be awfully lonesome come retirement age, or maybe not, but one lifestyle is definitely more prone to a harder home life.

To the OP... If you don't like the travel now, you certainly won't tolerate it if/when you have a wife and family. The lifelong airline types here heavily identify themselves with their profession, thus some of the responses you have received.

I'm not telling you to walk away, but the fact that you're looking for validation to do so tells me you probably should. No sense in being miserable in your career just because you're doing what others think is right for you.

It's your life, do what you want.
