Global Jet Luxembourg

It's the Francophone Flying Circus!
Look elsewhere if you can.

Has anyone a pulse on this operation, mainly the UK-based arm?

My contacts inside seem to confirm they are always keen to take on new a/cs but so far not a beep from their CP in the Luxembourg's HQs. A bit disappointed since I heard is a very nice and responsive gent, if you ask me.

Regards

There is an UK-based arm?

In your applications do not forget to mention that you are a) French citizen, b) live in Brittany, and c) your favorite hobby is sailing.

Sorry, I meant the UK-based/managed a/cs and pilots.

a) I am NOT French but I could cope in few months of language-exposure. b) I live in BRITAIN and c) I would LOVE to learn sailing. As a matter of fact, gipsy-touring the globe on a 40ft-snooker is my retirement plan...

But I need the cash to buy the boat, first!

As you can imagine, they are suffering a bit due to the sanctions on Russia.

They all suffer, especially BBJ owners.

War, Ruble exchange rate, sanctions and oil price: the russian/ukraine market is going to hell, as anyone with experience on the field can confirm.
Charter market dying and many owners selling their toys.

As for Global Jet, may I suggest you guys to shoot a little bit lower? Not really one of the most accessible companies around...

By the way if you have an interview with this nice company be prepared to pay for your tickets , hotel (if necessary) then don't expect an answer from them ..

dirk85, yeah sure, especially when I see Mikhail Fridman walking down by the airstairs from his BBJ two times a month in Le Bourget...

That is without a doubt statistically relevant and a clear example of the currently blooming economy in Ukraine and Russia.

But hell, after all, what do we know, with only 80% of our fleet based between Kiev and Moscow.

Not much compared to your three months 737 holiday charter experience in Europe, but still.

Interview expenses?

Hi all,

I was offered an interview for GlobalJet Lux but they are very cagey about saying too much (Anything actually!), before the interview. Now I find out they expect me to pay for my travel and hotac for said interview.

Anyone on here like to pm me and tell me what they are like to work for? This is not a good start.....are they this tight in other areas of the operation??

They are usually pretty good at paying for travel, hotac, and other expenses. Dunno about flight crew though.
