Merry Christmas Everyone! πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½πŸ€ΆπŸ½β›„| While I would love to spend it with my family this day as they are having a full blown family breakfast I am blessed to be spending it the 2nd best way possible. Luckily it’s an out and back trip which will still allow me to spend time with my family. Win. Win. This is why I always say, if you don’t love your job… I mean truly love your job you will hate it because of days like this. Also, had to bust out my Rudolph socks today πŸ˜‚

Is this necessary? I mean sure it’s funny, but this is more for social mediaπŸ˜‰

And if you have a private plane, then why are you in what looks like domestic first class?

He’s a pilot. And correct me if I’m wrong but a charter pilot working for someone

No work for me today! Company gave everyone a day off first Christmas I’ve had off ever since I started working in the aviation industry!

Out of curiosity, do you get paid double time for working today?
Obviously all of the commercial carriers are still flying today, so I am wondering how much they get paid today.

The whole point of it is to be funny. If you see most of my posts they try and be funny with a twist of a reality check to future aviators.

This case it’s working on Christmas. I work with a lot of pilots who complain about working on holidays instead of spending time with family which I understand, but in this line of work no days off are really set on stone. It sucks, but it is what it is. It all boils down to how much you love your job… I love mine so the pinch issnt as hard.

Hope that helps give ya an insight to the purpose of this post 😊

135/91. Charter is more on demand which makes you on call 24/7 with only a few soft days off a month. Mine is 8/6 . Kinda the same, but different 😊

Yes, I get holiday pay. For airline guys it’s time and half their hourly rate.

Mine is a flat holiday rate.

Hope that helps 😊

In regards to the pic. Myself and the captain were on a recliner watching a movie waiting for the weather to β€œlift up” so we can make it to our destination without needing to hold and waste companies and clients money.
