View Full Version : Pilot/airframe ratios

24th Jul 2016, 21:01
My outfit has 13.75 pilots per airframe. I would be interested to see how that compares with the following airlines/fleets.
Air NZ A320 fleet
Jetstar NZ A320's
Jetstar Aus A320's
Jetconnect 737's
Virgin NZ 737's
Tiger Aus A320's
Virgin Aus 737's
If you know the ratios for any of the above and don't mind posting it I would be most interested. I know that there are differences governed by the types of flying, economies of scale etc but I am interested anyway to see what those differences are.

Jetstar NZ A320's don't have an official 'per airframe' figure but it has always run between 5 and 5.5 crews per airframe, so 10 - 11 pilots per aircraft.

I know Air Niugini are not on the list but to give an international perspective to the thread PX operate their F100's with just over two (and decreasing) crews per airframe.
