Very little roster stability, last minute trip changes, some at the airport on trip check in. Maximum hours planned with mainly repetitive fatiguing Atlantic nightsops with the odd Lagos.
Although his fleet has an extensive Caribbean network, time off and trip bid choices rarely awarded, with only a couple of Caribbean trips ln last year or so.
It also appears seniority not apparent in B787 course progression, as more junior pilots allocated at random.
With such a seemingly poor rostering system, sickness seems the only way to regulate stress and fatigue at the moment.
Just been reading through your past posts ......
not really a fan of VS are you
obviously I canít talk for everyone at Virgin , but being on the 787 fleet is probably one of the best jobs going in the uk .
I do 3 , 4 (MAX) trips a month and fly with some real good guys and girls
Compared to my previous employer Big Air itís a breath of fresh air and I never look back
