    The new airline thread

    As I said I sit reserve, commute, and am very junior (read 95% best case from the top I believe). I am very very lucky as I commute NY-ATL and I have basically hourly service between the two every day. I have been away from home the same number of days I have worked (average 4 days per month). Now that takes 2 things into consideration: 1) I am very proactive in working my schedule, and working my requests to fly and/or sit short call which has worked out so far 2) my category is very overmanned and thus far this summer has been at the min hours end of the spectrum so that helps greatly too. I consider myself incredibly lucky in how the summer has gone and realize it will not continue forever. When I get transferred back to NY base, I will likely work more each month but since no commuting I won't have to play with my schedule nearly as much.

    The new airline thread

    I take home a little over $12k each month after taxes. I sit narrow body reserve at min hours every month since April (I think August is a higher hour month though) Worked: April- 4 days May- 4 days June- 6 days July- 4 days so far. Tried to work a 3 day trip starting Monday but didn't get it so likely I will have the week off...not looking like I will work at all the rest of the month August- 13 days of vacation, built another 6 days off for a "mini vacation" at the end of the month as well so I will sit reserve 10 of the remaining days but not sure how much I will actually "work"

    And Yet Another Deadline Missed

    I've managed to work just 4 days per month every month since April. I'm running out of things to do around the house and the wife keeps asking if I can go back to work. I second the statement...VOTE WITH YOUR FEET! And we wonder why people are bailing...

    I don't understand why pilots are bailing as quick as they can to go to the airlines...a real head scratcher here 🤦‍♂️
  5. Ride the employee shuttle with them and just listen...these people are barely functional at life and we expect them to protect our air travel? HAHA It's all smoke and mirrors.
  6. Hilarious!! I wonder how many they missed? They love to celebrate their success... 🙄
  7. Airline pilots should be able to carry a bazooka through security if they want...why the F does it matter? It's not like we don't immediately have access to a crash axe, ability to put everyone to sleep in flight, and the biggest weapon of all the airplane itself! Yet the Smurfs get all excited when they catch you with a big bottle of water or nail clippers. It's a bunch of barely functioning individuals who have been given the authority to be assholes all they want with no recourse, but watch out if you as much roll your eyes at them. I have lost count how many times I have seen them giving some mom holding her small child or elderly individual in a wheelchair the full monty. Meanwhile weapons (real weapons not nail clippers) still get through which I figure has something to do with them focusing on their social life with the other Smurfs as bags are going through the X-ray machine while they aren't even looking at the computer...

    And we wonder why people are fed up with the AF... Different standards for different people.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    I was in ATL Tuesday when this happened...it was damn hot there! This dude had to be rethinking his choice of clothing running around that pavement, climbing on the airplane, and eventually laying down. Ouch!!

    Standby for Space peoples' QUEEP to increase ten fold as every wannabe Chief of Staff starts padding their resumes to get into a command roll...

    Rushing Units

    Go get some flight experience...even if it's enough to solo or get your PPL which would be even better. See if you like it and don't get airsick. The units are going to spend a lot of money and time on you before you ever set foot in the sq as a useful member. It can be frustrating for them to "waste" a spot on you if you struggle at UPT because you are sick all the time or decide it's not for you. With a little time or better a PPL under your belt, you can at least show you like it and an ok chance you won't be throwing up every UPT flight. The unit I was in, if you didn't have any flight time you probably would get passed over... Just my 2 cents but I don't fly in the reserves anymore so my info could be out of date. Also I wouldn't suggest you lead with the C-130 being your last resort if needed...in any sq...your call though.

    I can't even remember what there was to cheat on at SOS had I wanted too... I've lost track of what number this would be on reasons why the AF is f-d up. 🤦‍♂️

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    I get and completely understand your overall point. The one thing I am having trouble caring too much about is a military member boarding ahead of first class passengers... At Delta, the gate agent is going to have First Class 6ft behind those military individuals anyways (basically boarding at the same time), and they won't be allowed to use the First Class bins either so to me it doesn't much matter. First Class will still have their wider seats, extra legroom, and drink served as soon as they sit down. Honestly the only First Class pax that would even care they had to board second are the ones who are going to feel overly special they are sitting where they are. The typical frequent flyer/business pax isn't going to bat an eye. Overall I understand your point though, and do agree with it. Yes it is ridiculous that some abuse the gesture...if you are traveling for work go for it if it's really that important to be the first to board, otherwise wait your turn.

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    I do the exact same thing. First, I appreciate the business for the discount but A) I am not going to "punish" the server by tipping less because I saved some money and B) I went there to eat expecting to pay the full amount. Assuming the server isn't a complete dirt bag, my gain instantly becomes the server's gain. After all I am guessing they aren't making a ton of money and that extra 10% probably means more to them then it does me.
