    Southwest pilot's open mic rant

    Well, if you really want to go diversity training and your boss won't send you, this may be one way to get there. May not be safe for work, although the profanity is censored...

    A guy who works 70 hours a week for $25,000 a year can't afford to be so picky about women.

    I figured a discount airline had discount pilots. Maybe I was thinking of Mesaba.

    I saw a billboard in Sydney, Australia for Qantas Airlines with a typical geriatric United flight attendant on one side, and a hot Qantas flight attendant on the other. The caption said, "Who do you want to fly?" I've flown with Qantas and their flight attendants still are what ours once were.


    A Southwest First Officer will make six figures in about year 3. They are paid by the flight hour, and a garanteed 78 hours/month at $105.27 is about $99,000.
