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.
Not sure how long VS have been going, but those repetitive fatiguing Atlantic night stops have been going the same time, as well as those at BA and all the other Airlines I watch crossing the Atlantic on FR24. So whats different Pete Pilot where is all this stress and fatigue coming from or is fatigue just the in thing/word these days.....
