Questions people ask me when I say I work in aviation

Well, even if the majority of us have dream of being a pilot at least once, that does not mean we all can fly..
  1. So you must fly for free when ever you want!
    I wish! No, that is a perk that airlines give to their employees and there is always a catch... Even if they can is always tied to availability
  2. Will you recommend airline X or Y?
    See: depending on what you are looking for and ready to pay....
  3. Which aircraft is better A or B?
    All well maintained aircrafts are good! All depends on which airline you are flying. A budget airline might have a very simple interior and basic comforts, the structure and engines are the same as the most expensive airline that uses exactly the same plane
  4. Explain me in some few words how an aircraft engine works please!
    Here you go: Suck, squeeze, bang and blow...
  5. What do you think is the cause of this/that air disaster?
    Rule 1: never ever make speculations about aviation events...and I follow rules!
  6. For sure you always flight Business class!
    Wishful thinking! The very few times I did I was upgraded using my own points and I was in cloud nine!!! Once I flew from Caracas to Amsterdam only sitting during take off and landing... I joke that I walked my way to my destination....
  7. At the end not all is bad....
    To walk under a 777-300, A380, A330, greet the first 747-800 at their destination, feels like walking with dinosaurs...such big gentle beasts, so heavy and still they fly!!! I LOVE MY JOB AND AVIATION IN GENERAL...
