I enjoy airline flying as a job, it's not the most exciting type of flying but not bad either. The only time I am miserable is when I look at my pay cheque. :lol:

There most certainly are miserable airline pilots, but the same goes for every facet of the industry - you'll always find them, or rather they'll find you. Every company has at least one miserable prick who goes out of their way to try and make those around them miserable. They usually have some advice, or a hint or trick to make things easier, better, what ever. Usually some passive aggressive BS. Ignore them, smile, nod along and then laugh with the rest of your like minded colleagues.

But, there is one thing you'll learn very quickly. Aviation tends to attract more than it's fair share of, well, rather eccentric personalities. Certainly much more so than what most would consider "average".

Miserable people in all walks of life, airlines do not have the inside line on miserableness, count retirees in that category as well. I know some who have it all yet in complaining mode every time I talk to them. It isn’t greed in wanting more but insignificant(as I see it) items bother them, there is always something wrong. Kinda never a “ don’t worry be happy” philosophy. I avoid those acquaintances when possible :?

Airlines? No.

Regionals? Yes.

703? Depends.

Neither, and prolific posters on Avcanada? The miserabelist!

Personally, I'm in the first category, and couldn't imagine life being much better. :)
