Is being a commercial airline pilot a good job?
Is being a commercial airline pilot a good job? Is it exciting and fun job? Is it stressful? Do you get to work with good people? Also, lets say I have a masters degree (MBA) would there be opportunities to get to a higher rank (maybe manager) and make some more $$$? This one is important: Is it worth all the training? I know pilots have to go through a lot of training, so, is it worth the training?

No, it's not worth it. No matter how passionate about aviation you are, it will become 'just a job' eventually. Those who say otherwise haven't been in the business long enough (they're most likely new regional airline pilots). Yes, it is very exciting at first. Once you get into your 30s, get married and have... More
