To be fair, I find mixed fleet crew (rightly or wrongly) quite defensive of their contracts.

Which routes on MF have the B747-400?

Going off the BA website, it shows for next year:

LAS, PHX and ORD have 1 B744 rotation each (other ORD is B777)

Also BOS is showing as 2xB744 and 1xB777

Is the list correct or is it likely to change?

Info required on CSM role on board and ground duties.

Hi,

I am new to the forum, but not to flying, and I have an upcoming interview for CSM and am curious to know the difference to my existing role in Charter. Does the CSM work a position in First/Business/Premium as I do or are they purely managing the crew/flight as I believe Virgin do? Also, how many days per month are you in the office and what exactly does the mentoring role entail on a day to day basis? I know what the salary is but what does a CSM take home on an average month? How is it down route and are there new routes coming? Ive read lots of mixed reviews of mixed fleet so any info from current CSMs would be appreciated, if I'm lucky enough to be offered the job I'll be leaving my safe, familiar company whom I've worked for almost 24 yrs so I need the full honest truth, warts and all please. Thanks.

Actual salary

Hi!

I've just got an offer to join MF at BA and I have read this entire thread. I'm experienced and I have a clear image of the pros and cons of MF and the job is true love for me. But there is one thing that's not really clear. How much money do you actually get each month - is that incl the hourly 2.60 and after taxes are paid? I work in Sweden and don't know the British system that well but I really need to know to see if it's even possible to live in London with this pay.

As it seems when I read through the posts I earned more when I joined a low cost airline in Sweden five years ago and living here is not London-expensive...

So how much do you get after taxes in average?

Well ,basic at the start is 12,000 ie 1,000 per month before tax.If you are paying national insurance and income tax in the UK ,then you will loose about 160 which leaves you approx 840.(you may also wish to pay into a pension in which case this figure will be less).
All time away from base then earns 2.60 per hour allowances,(taxed pretty much as above;well ,slightly less),so if you decide to bid for the longest trips and are successful,for a five day trip you would earn 250 before tax.If you were lucky enough to have four of these trips in a month you could earn another 1,000 before tax.
On the other hand if you decided to bid for manchester there and backs,and that is all you did for a month,then you would only earn in the region of 270 allowances before tax.
Hence your takehome pay at the end of the month could vary between something around 1,050,going up to 1,700.Averaging these extremes out you could realistically look to taking home 1,400.(less, if you wanted to put something away in a pension).

well 3 1/2 days duty pay generally equates to a 4 1/2 day trip ,does it not.MF is growing and continually picking up new routes.Examples given previously were really best and worse case senarios .So ms Moo what would you suggest as to being a realistic take home pay ?

Well they are not best and worse case senarios when the best doesn't exist . My friends have a best take home on a great bid 1400 ish and that does not allow for host deductions ( you do have to eat and drink )

Well my friends have taken home 1600 so maybe your friends don't bid as well.And why are you taking host into account anyway,you could use your credit or debit card to pay your bills when you are away .You have to eat one way or the other if at home or away so that arguement is irrelevant.

I am an FTCSM (4K more basic to CC) and average take home is 1450 - 1600, more on 1/4 bonus months.

I self fund so never use HOST.

Does anyone know if MF are intending to recruit direct entry CSM's or FTC's in the future?

BA's website is advertising Cabin Crew roles until 15 March from today, but just wondering if the boat has well and truly sailed in terms of direct-entry roles such as CSM, etc.

I don't think they are, and if they do, it will be for the last time, they are running 2 external CSM courses this year, of which I believe they have recruited for already, as for the future they have ample crew on the FTCSM scheme for are waiting for a CSM course, and plenty of crew applying for FTC to cover the future expansion!

Not forgetting the BMI crew - still no confirmation as to where they will fit in.

Aneetha Chadha

I thought I'd mention that Aneetha, who had been doing MF recruitment for BA, died in a car accident on 11 March. Her colleagues were shocked by her death.
