I hope you won't be laughing out loud too much when Mr. Wyatt (Jim or Phil), it doesn't really matter, legs it with all the money again.

You would be on a different contract to the current crew, myself included, as we are permanant, however all new crew coming in are temporary, the basic is 11,500, commission is 8, 10 or 12% depending on if you meet the bar targets, and your flight pay is 3 per hour with 25 per night away from base allowance. Your flight pay and commission is taxed as well as the salary. Your slightly different to us as we are tax free flight pay etc and we are permanant, however their is only about 30 of us that is permanant. Our assesment day is ok you should go along, you will have an exam on general knowledge and maths, and depending on your score will depend on if you make it through to the next round when you will have your interview, its nothing to major, if you go for it my advice would be just be yourself! Hope this helps!

Don't forget Viking are basing a B737-300 at BOH this summer for the Palmair flying. May be positions on the flight deck available?

.....soooooo.....will the operation be dispatched out of the UK? Or from Greece? Would be nice - looking at some of the job losses LGW has suffered over the last 24 months or so - if they set up an Ops base here at LGW.

There sure a few empty premises available at the mo'!

Former bmibaby 733 G-BYZJ now kicking around EMA with VKG titles, so looks like the classics are on the way

Anyone know if they are recruiting flight deck.I hear plenty of recruitment for cabin crew but nothing for pilots. Also any XXL flight deck flying for them at the moment? XXL myself and still not heard anything.

Fair point Jaydubya.......

You would think that as they will have a local cc base they would have a local fd base to go with it?

Where will the crew report at LGW - anyone know?

Looks suspiciously as though the EMA-Greece flying originally put up for Goldtrail may have been scrapped.

I was under the impression that it was just LGW/MAN that Goldtrail would be selling for Greece on the Viking Flights.

Never heard of them wanting to do East Midlands this year but maybe wrong !!
