There might be a slight problem with that. Air Berlin operates an Airbus only fleet. So those pilots are Airbus rated. Yes, a few kept their old 737 rating active, but most didn't. Still, yes, Ryanair was the first to offer a job to AB pilots, 2 hours after the news broke about the brankruptcy they had a job offer in their Linkedin inboxes. Base of choice, direct contract with Ryanair, 20.000 signing bonus and 130k a year (at 900 hours though).
