I've been in the hold pool with JET2 since mid September and got a call about 2 weeks ago offering me a September start so there is sign of movement
I know somebody that was a couple of days ahead of me in the pool that hasn't got a call yet so it can't be first come first served order I don't think....
Good luck to everyone else and be patient.....the call will come!

When I was at Jet2 I was repeatedly told nobody wants a fixed pattern roster, I love my 5/4 roster.

Which base have you been offered Jet123? I suspect the offers might be base dependent.

14% drop in pretax profit for the year ended March 31 and a comment from the chairman, who said."There remains considerable uncertainty around "Brexit" negotiations and the effect these could have, both on our freedom to fly and on our customers' ability to travel to our leisure destinations."

Hi mates,

One question. Is it possible to choose Alicante as permanent Base during FO time and after your Upgrade?

How many time it takes to upgrade as Captain?

Are they flying 4 sector days usually. What percentage per month?

What's the training pay? How long it takes and who pay the expenses?

If someone can help me with this doubts I will really appreciate

Cheers

Alicante base - you will be able to express a preference however you might well be recruited for another base initially, it depends on commercial requirements. Base transfers are usually pretty swift.

Time to Command - depends on you really, and the number of hours you have/work. Alicante based guys don't do a lot of hours so if you are joining with little experience it will take a while. There isn't a seniority list, you apply for consideration when you have the required experience and believe that you are ready.

4 sector days - almost none.

Training pay - I believe that you are paid fully during your training. Per dimes are at a reduced rate during the type rating which I believe is funded by Jet2 in lieu of a bond.

Ok more or less I understand, so you don't really know when the company is going to give you your preference base right? I mean there is no seniority...

Can anyone give a rough timescale to command assuming you have the hours and meet the criteria? You can apply after 6 months post final line check I believe? How long does it take to get the ball moving after that?

Base transfer list is very transparent and unheard of to be on it for a year. ALC is not the most popular base for F/O's as you don't fly much at all so it would be fairly quick to get there. 3-6 months I recon

LessPepper

If you have the hours and time in company I'd say 6 months to a year to get thru the system so long as your sharp. It's all best guess stuff as it's down to requirements.

Thank you,

How much can make "net" per month an FO and CPT at the beginning?. How many hours you fly usually per month ?

Correct, no seniority, however the base transfer list is organised on first come first served, i.e., it's done in order that you join the list. As has been said, ALC is usually undercrewed so my guess is that you would likely get that base right from the start.

As for how much you make nett, it depends on which base you are at, as your sector pay and duty pay makes a difference. At ALC you will earn less than most other bases as you fly less, it also depends on how much you choose to pay into the pension, and also on the Spanish tax rate vs UK tax.

JFP, are training positions very popular with the crew there or undersubscribed? Iím curious what the prospects are for someone who enjoys being trapped in a dingy box to have a long term career of it.

I would say that the prospects of someone who enjoys being in the back of a darkened box are very good. We have recently recruited direct enter TRE's and TRI's.

It sounds good to me... just one question more. Is there any extrapayment when they send you to fly out of base?

You get your hourly duty allowance and your sector pay for the sectors that you fly, you will be accommodated on B&B basis and your transfers will all be organised for you either using hotel courtesy bus or taxi.
