Boeing V Airbus

Can I be the second..!!

When do the Airbuses start arriving at LTN?? any news of when us Luton lot will be trained up on the beast?? Who wants the Boeing to stay!

Personally, I love the Boeing! but the idea of someone else up the front is to good to pass up!

Airbus v Boeing

I quite like both.

I am LTN based but was initially dual rated so have flown them both (didn't like the 300s though ugh no).

Airbus always seemed bigger and brighter, but boeing cosier, with a closer knitt crew...though the poor senior does get lonley.

The question has been for years though, when will LTN get airbus, answer: after everyone else.

I used to work on the A321, and I liked it, apart from the creaking doors! but I dunno, I just feel safer in a Boeing, dunno why! oh well, look forward to working on the beast at Luton, How very exciting!

Whoo hoo

Just to let you all know I got 100% in the exam I was worried about.

I did the interview, they called me up to say I was successful (apparently they usually send a letter but I was desperate to know).

Haven't asked for feedback yet but will do.

I am over the moon.

Thanks everyone for your help.

I know what you mean about the Boeing feeling safer! And those creeky slide housings do annoy me coming into STN after a 4 sector day, but I do like the wide aisle on the airbus.

I left ezy the week before training started on the airbus the LGW. I would have enjoyed some company up the front with me on the jumpseat.
Having said that, the Boeings, especially the older second hand 300's (YB, YC, YD, YF and YT!) all had character. Plus built like tanks!!!
Have JA and JB left the fleet yet? Any other 700's gone? JB was the first one I ever flew on when I started at LTN.

Which is best LGW or LTN?

Can anyone help.......

Are the rosta's busy at LGW & LTN. I have applied for LGW and was wondering what the typical take home pay would be a month.....

Are you dual rated in LGW?

Would anyone be able to PM me a typical LGW rosta..... Just so I know what to expect.....

Thanks everyone.

My roster at LGW is quite quiet, mostly 2 sector days, my hours a day are generally about 7-8 hours but with 4 sector days this can be as long as 12.

6 days on, 3 days off.

Typical take home pay for CC is around 1400 after tax. More in busy summer periods.

Nope, only single rated on the A319.

Good luck!
