“I work for a cargo airline so conditions are a bit different compared to commercial pilots. I’m away from home for two thirds of the month and get between 12 and 72 hours off between our various destinations. Schedules change regularly depending on the season, with December being a very busy month due to Christmas. The number of flights from Kenya and Ecuador increases just before Valentine’s Day and during winter we get a lot of fresh produce from countries outside of Europe. My flight schedule changes every month but I can usually bet on specific rotations or destinations.”
