[pedant mode on]

Jose Manuel Barrosso is the President of the European Commission.

Herman Van Rompuy is the President of the European Council (aka the European President)

[/pedant mode off]

Barrosso was there to gift 125m to Burma - if you can credit that !

Telephone interviews going on this and last week, 4 flightcrew hired in the last 2 months, 3rd aircraft on V9-reg delivered, planning move to Malta and sales/memberservice move to London completed with little fuss.

In other words - compared with the competition, not doing too badly

Well, I wouldnt be too certain ´bout that. The move to Malta in deed comes along with a lot frustration and disgrace. Not everyone in the office agrees, that it is such a great idea to be dragged to BFE with the entire family. What would your wifes and kids say? ANd VJ does not leave an option. You agree or you go! How employee-friedly is that?

But overall this just one more time represents the company attitude. Swallow or Fu** *ff!

What a great company! Timberlake, Baroso and other VIPs only look at the money, not behind the curtain. If they discover a bargain, they take it. Don´t we do that too at Carrefour and Media Markt? So, what does all this bu****it have to do with the way the company operates and treats its loyal employees?

At the end, that´s exactly why most pilots decide to leave and only use VJ as a TRTO.

I think you will find that "it's me" once worked for Vista Jet and was fired for being a well below standard pilot and now thinks he can do harm to a succeeding company by talking crap on the internet, that's from my inside source.

So we had Jr of Dallas rubbishing TAG because he failed his interview and simride and now we got this guy rubbishing Vista because he was let go. In another thread we had a few ex NJE guys having a go at that company.

PPRuNe is taking a bit of a turn for the worst as of late. Need to take more posters with a bucket of salt I guess.

Oh hello Cldrvr...
Well if you read the post i was not rubbishing about TaG but another chinese company wich offered me a rather sh*** position.. As for the interview with TaG it was just not the conditions i was unfortunatly expecting so it didn't go any further (forgot my vaseline tube on that day) and I don't know where you got that I had a simride and that I failed it.... ( or maybe it happened while I was sleeping)
As for the bucket of salt I conclude that you start washing your mouth with it straight away

I hope this finally dispells your belief that VistaJet is struggling:

Hey thats a good idea CLDRVR - I could do that with your for the accusations you made on the flap retraction thread and in your email to me.

Posted the data by the way, have a look..

Makes interesting reading and makes your knowledge look pretty ropey..

Hey @ "it's Me"

Bet you wished you had kept your gob shut now with all your rants about VistaJet and how bad a company they are, seems to me they are doing very well with the biggest Bizjet order in history.

From ATC with the UU-- proceeding airport, rant on matey.

Anyone fancy a sweepstakes on how many they actually deliver?

Netjets ordered 33 Falcon 7X's - anyone know how many they have delivered? A very unscientific test

Most of these orders will be to artificially inflate the price of a Global - want one tomorrow? Well, Vista Jet will sell you one over list...

I'd be somewhat suprised if more than 15-20% of these aircraft actually deliver.

Quote: "I'd be somewhat suprised if more than 15-20% of these aircraft actually deliver."

To be honest, I´d be suprised if there are any delivered! How many times has TF already signed some kind of intentional letter to widen his fleet. There have been somewhat five or six "Letters of Intent" at all kind of airshows in the recent past. And, what has happened? Nothing...

That´s all BS... rather look at the people working there. Why is VJ looking for new crewplanner, aircrews, ops people?Browse the net guys. You´ll find it. It´s simple, ´cause management treats the employees like shit. They are mostly not even aware that VJ is looking for replacements. Anyway: Who wants to move to Malta? Well...guess how many..

VJ is nothing else than a TRTO for the most pilots. Get in, get a type rating and start applying somewhere else... One would be surprised how many pilots have actually sent their CV to AeroLogic, ACG, AirBerlin, EcexuJet, TAG, FAI, etc... that´s really an achievement of a great management Chapeau!

All my best wishes to them - if they get the jets and can pair them with some serious business - congrats!

Still - I agree that they'll probably make a big load of cash on lots of options from people who want a Global two or three years down the road and are prepared to pay for it. Anyways...

Why are we advertising? More aircraft = more staff.

Crew planning have increased from 3 to 6 people…OPS have gone from 20 to 28 due to increased number of revenue flights. 3 ops staff aren’t going to malta, the other 25 are – so where are you getting your facts from Itsme?

You have left the company now, so drop it. Unless you realise that your negative attitude and resignation from VJ was the biggest mistake of your life.

Again; wrong.

All 605s ever ordered were delivered.
All lear 60’s taken…

G6000, 7 more over next 12 months, none sold.
G8000 2016 deliveries.

We've taken 50 aircraft now in line with renewing fleet every 3 to 5 years. So if you add up the number of orders, taking those into account those aircraft which are not even flight tested yet (85 and 8000) you will see that we have sold very few positions.

What about the Airbus? Was announched with a big bang and dropped tacitly into the wastebasket.
So belief it only, if you can touch the aircraft and are able to read the plate, where it says, to which Bank/Leasingcompany this aircraft with all of its components belongs.
Cheers

The Airbus was never intended for the VistaJet model.

3 were ordered and all sold.
