Excuseme boys...
I did not understand do you have 200 days off a year?
And you earn about 5000 euros as First Officer?
If it is so not bad at all...

13 rosters a year, during each you have either 10 or 11 off days.
42 days of vacation a year.
That's already 172 days off minimum.
+ some blank days so you're getting close to 180 at least.
Some consider a couple days in South America as off days as well!
I don't, for me it's hard work

ok guys, just few questions..
1. When you say 184 days off I think you have nearly 10 days off every 14 days on, isn't it?
2. Do you have any ticket benefit to move from/to luxemburg?

You'll have 10 or 11 off days every 4 weeks.
It's either a period of 7 and a period of 4 days or a single period of 10 days.
The 180 days off is the total per year.
5000 euros as First Officer is probably correct.
Depending on where you pay your tax it could be even more.

And do you have any ID ticket with any company?
I know that in some long range carrier you can have 2 kind of stby days: one long (more or less 10 hours) and the other short about 2 hours, it is the same in yours?
And the last question.. do your company pay the 747 type rating?

Thankyou very much in advance.

Hi Broomstick, for now our main stby travel arrangement is with Luxair. Which will get you back to Turin, Rome FCO or Milan MXP depending where you're from in Italy.
The only kind of standby being used now on a more regular basis is RES; which requires 24 hrs notification.

The typerating will provided in house and paid for by Cargolux.

Latest rumours say that CV is not going to hire this year except for a dozen or so 744-rated contract F/Os in fall to cover the 747-8 training slack.
A couple of those guys might be offered a firm contract later.
Rumours...

Is the holding pool now empty? If not how many still waiting the call? I've registered my application few months ago, how many chances do I have to be called for selection? I'm not type rated on 744 but I have wide body experience. thanks

Can you conferm me that in eurowings 240 people are let down?
As far as i can know they have close some bases but they are hiring pilot all in Dus and they are going to expand their fleet? I think the people gone is because the don't want to change their base, isn't it?

TR classes

After all these good news lately about training going to start from April (3 classes as far as I heard), has anybody heard something offical?? I am one of the holdpoolers and still it seems to be impossible to find out what is really going on... and this week, the HR and chief pilot office are on holidays?! Surely Easter is coming up, but that's all a bit confusing "knowing" training should start for the first guys from next week?!

Someone with insight able to clarify?? Many thanks + kind regards.
