the unions for the airlines much like the auto company's are out of touch with the Real world..
In the past strikes crippled both industries and then the money became bloated..
Now that said I really want the best pilot in the world driving the planes I'm on..
but to hear that these poor guys are going to have to be away from home 20 days of the month sorry but the money your making justifies that issue..
most people would love to have 10-11 days off a month.. at home with momma.. There are all sorts of regs that the FEDs have in place for crew rest, most flights over say 8 hours the pilots rotate out of the cockpit for a nap..
On longer flights say from NY to Asia there are two crews to make the flight each direction..
sometimes in life you can't have your cake and eat it also..
