    They raised it from age 60 back in 2008.

    It seriously put the brakes on my career advancement because a bunch of people who otherwise would have retired have been working 5 extra years.

    Hopefully they don't raise it again for a while.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

    •  I was worried more about the "work till you die" (0+ / 0-)

      line. Kind of worrisome in this particular job, for obvious reasons.

        We've had a couple instances where pilots on layover were found dead in their hotel rooms.

        We had one guy die in the simulator not too long ago.

        My company hasn't had anyone die in the cockpit but it happened on another airline just this year.
