Bondi and Playstation,

You really are a couple of plums. We all know you are upset about how your careers with Norwegian ended. However, your constant hijackiing of these threads to express your discontent takes up an inordinate amount of bandwidth. There are actually pilots who are asking genuine questions who would actually like relevant information rather than propaganda from a couple of embittered ex-employees. Please grow up boys.

my last post described the current selection process as it was relayed to me, which part of "Norwegian Pilot Selection" does that fail to address ? or, am I not allowed to add my own opinions on how worthwhile it is to put yourself through it ? don't worry, just utilise the correct handshake & you too can be welcomed to the brotherhood. . . . sorry, "Norwegian Family".

I fully respect the right of anyone seeking employment, or change, to ask any question(s) in their endeavors and wish them every success.

I have sought to correct misinformation and provide relevant information, including union representation and to whom, in order that prudent choices may be made by prospective applicants. Remember, some pilots may be leaving a career with an airline to join Norwegian via a 3-year fixed term, temporary “career” with a staffing agency.

My post on the previous page details the way to a more secure working relationship directly with the Norwegian airline for ALL their pilots, rather than the present fragile and insecure relationship via a service provider. This outcome is desired by the Norwegian Pilot Group and stated on their website – link:


The US based cabin crews have achieved some success with the help of the National Mediation Board. Unfortunately, Norwegian is obstructing their Collective Labor Agreement by refusing roster changes for two representatives to attend negotiation meetings. Spanish pilots are also facing obstruction in their CLA with Orient Ship Management and a non-airline, Norwegian Resource Group. Spanish cabin crews have threatened to strike if they cannot achieve representation directly to the Norwegian airline.

With the inordinate Kjos propaganda of Norwegian’s expansion and reported desperate need for pilots, combined with last summer’s debacle of thousands of passengers left stranded and distraught by cancelled flights due to a lack of pilots, there may never be a better bargaining opportunity.

Perhaps you, or any other person, can provide a reason why Norwegian’s pilots continue to pay union dues for representation to a staffing agency, when the ability to have union representation, a CLA and associated labor rights directly with the Norwegian airline is available.

And still, the lectures keep on coming.

The thread title is 'Norwegian B737 Pilot selection' - just a hint for you.

All the best.

Then he/she probably joined as a DEC, the way I've understood it is that you cannot cut the master seniority list.

So, to confirm, will the 737 Max in the UK & Ireland be separate from the standard 737-800 operations? Will the pilots currently flying the 800 be able to bid the Max or is that completely separate? I understand the U.S. operation is solely Max.
