£235 a day + sector pay. In total between £280 & £420 after tax, depending on what sectors you fly on the day. Some have been asked to cover standby on a day off, you get £235 for this if you are not called.
I must be on a different contract at Easy. Easy may buy back the odd bit of leave from time to time, but you work in to a day off due delays etc and you get zip. If you exceed 1.5 hrs in to your day off, then you get another day off back.
Yup, that's how it is! Somebody asks a question Somebody asks 'why do you want to know?' Somebodyelse either changes the question and answers, or answers another question altogether Everybodyelse argues Moderator steps in and bans people Thread disappears into history
Remember a pilot at a company i worked at a few years ago, filling his day off claim form after working approx an hour into his day off, complaining that it wasn't much after 40% tax was taken off.
Suggested that maybe he was lucky to be in the 40% tax bracket, and could always ask to have his pay cut so he wouldn't have to pay 40% tax, strangely enough he didn't seem able to understand my point.
I'm sure he understood the point, but as he's earned his position to be paying the ridiculous 40% tax by being captain then I can see his point that he doesn't want to give nearly half to the government to fritter away.
When you work on a day off, in the long run you are hurting the other pilots and yourself. There are pilots who don't want to work on a day off and the company could pressure them to work. You are telling the company that it is OK to trade quality of life for money. If the company sees pilots selling their days off there will be less hiring and upgrades. There are lots of unemployed pilots out there. You can't ask later for more quality of life when you are willing to sell it. In the future the company could reduce the number of days off for more money, and later reduce the pay without giving back the days off. I am sure there are more reasons not to work on a day off, just see how much the terms and conditions for pilots and cabin crews have eroded lately. It's sad that people used to say to fly on a day off and now they say to work.
Several posts indicate the figure of 1.5 * pay. The company I work for also pays 1.5 times the day rate (monthly salary divided by average monthly working days of approximately 20). The normal work day to off day ratio is 2:1. Which means that every day you work 'earns' 1/2 off day. Working an off day means: loosing one day and not getting the 'earned' 1/2 day....total 1.5 days. In other word break even (except for some per diem).
