I think VAA captain has significantly more days off than a Tiger Captain. The new EBA is also yielding quite a few extra days above the minimum.

Whats the change to the Tiger rostering?

Being done by VARA now. OCC will probably head there too.

The Tiger EA document shows:

137 days off annually
plus
29 days annual leave

VAA standby pilot (13 for 13 rosters) is 169 and 42 annual leave (211).
VAA non standby (11 and 12 alternating 13 rosters) is 149 and 42 annual leave (191).

With new EBA most are getting a few more days than the EBA minimum.

Vs Tiger 166 total.

The salary is indeed close when you bring the hours up to 69 but if youíre going to do that you have to look at how much time you have at home as well for the apples with apples comparison. To be fair the best comparison would be with Jetstar.

Anyway best of luck to the TT guys and girls.

Iím not familiar with either of the awards you are comparing but externally the amount of days off sounds pretty good. Just a query though, do you add the annual leave days off on top of all the other days off? Or should you be subtracting the days off youíd have had while on leave from that tally?

Sorry if if that sounds confusing but Iím not sure if you get all the days off (13x13) PLUS the annual leave or you donít add the 13 days off for the month you are on leave?

I don’t know the Tiger agreement that well but for Virgin Narrow Body it’s 13 rosters with 11/12 alternating days off per roster. If you get allocated or bid for standby (and some do) it’s 13 days off. 42 annual leave is separate. I think, but don’t quote me, you can take annual leave as a single day or as 42 in a row if you know what I mean.

The recent Eba gets extra days off included when the company wants you to flip you from a late to an early. As a result the days off tend to be more than the minimum. I’ve heard anywhere’s from standard 11/12 to 18 off per 28 day roster. I think Tiger is a monthly roster but again don’t quote me.

Will be interesting to see how Jetstar reacts as their EBA ends next month.

Bit of a pay difference now between VARA 320 and Tiger 320.

In relation to VA days off, you do 13 rosters a year of which 1.5 rosters are annual leave (42 days). The remaining 11.5 rosters have alternating 11 and 12 days off (minimum).

Therefore 132 days off plus 42 annual leave = 174 days off.

Standby rosters have 13 days off.

I've been getting about 2 additional days off (blank days) a roster since the new work rules were implemented.

Ok, thanks for that. 211 guaranteed days off per year sounded too good to be true.
But with the additional days off youíre currently getting itís not far off. Thatís great.
