Typically there are no short haul flights on the B767. Schedules vary considerably depending on your seniority. Your seniority lets you decide which routes you fly and which days you want to fly.

Some pilots only work 9-10 days per month with weekends off, while others work 14-16 days and every weekend.

Of all your long haul planes(B767,B777 and A330), which has the best routes(if there is such a thing) and offers a better lifestyle if one is tuned into that. Is the B767 mainly to Europe, A330 Southern Europe Italy,Spain etc and the B777 do mostly Asia/China Auzzie land etc. South America is somewhere in the mix as well. Do you have your own personal areas you like best subject to the bids and seniority, of course.

The best part about getting senior is not just being able to have those
special days off ....... but also being able to bid where you want to
go based on what you want TO EAT !

I had my favourite restaurants in every destination city we fly to.
Still do actually.
After a few years of flying to the same place, the hotels, airports and
station staff all start to look the same.
Bed, beer and pick up. Gets very monotonous.

However, picking out your favorite eatery and being senior enough to be able
to bid trips based on your culinary appetites makes it quite enjoyable.
And most of the time where I went wasn't where most of the crews went.
(I really despised that Greek restaurant people went to when staying at the
Denubious in London, what a dump !! It's closed now ... thank god.)
Romano's on the other hand ...... well, try it for yourself.
It's on Church street in Kensington, just up from the POW.

While in LFPG, try the St-Ferdinand just behind the Meridien at the Porte Maillot. A welcome Kir ( champagne mixed with something else, the olives with trimmings, then choice of 6 appetizers, then choice of minimum 6 main courses, followed by a choice of a minimum of 6 desserts, plus 1 bottle of good red or white wine, all for 39 Euros. Highly recommended.

The "something else" is Cassis. A black current liqueur similar to Chambord Royale.
