Gather some of you My Travel guys have now got Summer contracts, if so what were the final T&C?

Air2bob have just offered those who were made redundant two options.

Option 1. Temporary Summer only 29 April till 15 October, no leave, no benefits, full pay in the period plus a bonus for completing the contract.

Option 2. Permanent Part Year with working period 29 April till 29 November, then retained period till 31 March, then another working period till end of October, etc, etc, etc. 60% full time pay paid in 12 equal monthly instalments with benefits in working period only, pension if you can afford to contribute, back on the seniority role.

The latter smacks of a new model airline, standby! Promise of permanent contracts being awarded as they come available, why should they bother, a charter airline full of part-time pilots sounds like the ideal business model?

By the way, heard a rumour that Air 2000 is to become First Choice Travel, there is a familiar theme there me thinks.

That will be why we took the unpaid leave and why we made 21 pilots redundant and why we demoted 10 captains ........ so that we could afford to repaint the aircraft without affecting directors bonuses and shareholders dividends!

Bean Counters v Crew

I know where I'll put my bet, any offers?

I think First Choice Transport Division would be a good name, that way the pilots would be under no illusion as to where they stand in the order of things! Roll on the Summer!
