On top of that, I know that at least from one of those airlines nobody (NOBODY) has joined Iberia, even if they had the chance to.

IB is a brilliant deal for somebody wanting a life in MAD and the possibility of long haul, but many will even drop that for other things (especially money).

Anyway this is not a threat about IB... but reality is that recent joiners (post 2015) have been, in the vast majority, people with (very) low experience or joining from Vueling. There are a few from other airlines, of course, but it is far from being the majority of them. My experience is that the vast majority of Senior First Officers in other airlines are not interested in IB level 11, although I have to say IB is probably the best career you can have in Spain... if you want to live on a suitcase.

And of course we know how things work in Spain and in Iberia in particular, so IB is not for everybody. But that's another story.

I hope LEVEL goes forward, but I can anticipate very low contracts and possibly the worst conditions in the industry.

I wish LEVEL and their crews the best and a long life, but as I said earlier on, many people in Spain suspect that their intention is different, but everything could happen.

And no, I don't hope they have the worst conditions in the industry (for long-haul) obviously.

The name Level is pertinent to restoring a ‘level playing field’ in the Open Skies Agreement.

Additionally, Norwegian is highly proficient at “shafting” themselves without help from others, as demonstrated last summer;

“Thousands left stranded over the weekend as Norwegian Air cancels 30 flights”

http://cphpost.dk/news/thousands-lef...0-flights.html

This is a smart move by IAG in establishing a separate low cost airline. If IAG legacy carriers had lowered their fares below Norwegian’s on the same competitive routes, Norwegian may have had an antitrust (US) and/or competition law (EU) claim against IAG. This way they are competing on the same Level.

Just the name LEVEL is a potential risk to flight safety.... Every climb/descent clearance will contain the brand name. If its also their call sign, god help us.
"Climb flightLEVEL 350"..... "Confirm that was for LEVEL 350 to climb?"

What makes you think their call sign will be the same as their brand name?

There's a good idea, call your airline "Direct final approach fix, number one for arrival". Your on time performance will improve significantly

Responding to Level, Norwegian’s paid mouthpiece said the competition is welcome. He may wish to reconsider.

Level ticket prices are two-thirds lower than Norwegian’s:

Level will increase its fleet to at least 30 aircraft:
