Hi, I had a question. I am private pilot, and I was thinking about going into Airlines, but I have one question, and I am getting different answers from everyone. I want to how often to pilots stay away from home. I know, that major airlines give you more money, but can anyone tell me how often they stay away from home. I personally want to be home every night. Maximum one or two night away, but not more. My parents were away on different things when I was a child, I don't want that in my family. I want to be there with them. So can anyone give me some insight on the lives of pilots, major airline pilots. I heard that seniority does give you a chance to pick your schedule. But how confrtable is that schedule. Mostly I want to know, how often do pilot stay away from home, is it often or all the time, and how long are they away, and how does this situation differ when are you are a captain for a major airline for like 10 years. Thankyou.
