hey everyone......
well that sounds a bit more promising, hopefully we will know soon

cant wait to get started!!!

If there is any american crew around, could i just ask you a few questions?!?!?!
ALthough i know it will prob work out a bit different for you than it will for us, but roughly, how many trips do you get a month???
ANd how long are you away for??

Also i know this sounds a bit superficial, but what hotels do you stay in when your down route???

Also i know, that we will have to share a room during training, but hopefully that wont be the case, once we are operating????

Unhappy

hi guys, was really hoping we would've heard some news by today. The wait is killing me.

Regarding sharing rooms, I believe its only on the training course. Think they mentioned it at the interview. Correct me if Im wrong anyone.

That sounds good doesn't it.
I just wish they'd contact us. I've been offered a job with BMed and i just don't know what to do. I want to wait for Maxjet but its just taking so long.

More News

MAXJET is reported to be looking to shift its base from Washington in the US to Stansted Airport. It plans to use Stansted as a hub, not just for transatlantic flights, but also for services to Asia and South Africa. Maxjet is planning to raise up to 100m by floating on London's Aim market this summer to fund the expansion.

Hi Everyone,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but i emailed Maxjet once again to explain I had been offered another position with another airline but if maxjet was starting soon i would wait.

Unfortunately they replied saying the STN base will not be set up untill end of 2007 or early 2008 due their needs currently. She said its unfair to ask me to wait as it will definately be a 6 month minimum wait

I'm really shocked, although we have waited so long already with very little updates I really did believe we would be online within the next few months.

I'm gutted!!!!!!!!!

Angry

To be honest with you guys I can't say Im surprised by their decision, just really off, that they kept us waiting for so long without keeping us up to date.

Looks like I'll be applying to Virgin then.

hi hope your all ok, has any one recived an email from them ? cause theres at least 22 of us waiting for news and just to read it on a forum seems so unfair.
i thought they might of phoned or emailed with that type of information.
i'm not very happy but seems like a lot of airlines do this all the time.
good luck to everyone.
love tinkwings

Hi, recieved an Email dated 07/06/05, basically saying they were having to postpone the opening of the STN base until the latter part of 2007 or early 2008. Something to do with the Vegas/LA bases, and it not being cost effective.

Surely they would have emailed everyone. But then again they don't seem to know what they're doing.

Hope everyone is ok.

See you in 6 months.

If the growth pattern goes the way MAXjet anticipates...eventually a Stansted base will be an absolute necessity. With the open sky agreement coming into play in March of 2008, airlines such as MAXjet will have the opportunity to expand their services east of England.

Once that happens it will be critical to have a London based crew to continue the services outward.

Those of us who work here, don't have a clues as to when you folks will be joining us, or if/when a west coast U.S. base will open. This is all happening so quicky, and slowly at the same time.

I hope a speedy decision for you folks who have preselected is made, so you can get on with your lives if you'd rather not wait. Otherwise, when it does happen...see you online!
