Big words for a start up.

that is captain's salary.....befor UK tax.
They contribute 5% of salary to a pension fund, I guess you get also per diem and you got 12 off days a month but no idea if they could be consecutive.

For an experienced B747 captain, that is nowhere near adequate.

If the quoted figure is accurate, do you suppose they offer that amount because they find enough people who will accept it ?

You never know. It depends the lifestyle that they offer as well.

I have no say on this matter as I don't even have a tenth of experience required for the job, but let me tell you ErwinS that two wrongs don't make a right.

Yeaa, these ever moaning, spoiled flyboys.. Spending 20 days a month away from home and hearth, chronically fatigued, divorced, with the ABN-AMRO at my back.. 3500 NET for a 74 skipper is just not right! that's 30% of the market conform remuneration

Like pilots are the only people in the aviation industry who spend 20 days away from home and suffer the same ailments you describe....

Whinging Pilots.

If you whinging pilots don,t like it don,t do it, there are plenty of jobs for pilots all over the world, 747, 777, 787 and Airbus, but of course you all think you are so special and deserve so much, don,t even go there with how much training you have done, in this industry we have all done loads of training quite often a lot more than pilots.

I'm not special, I'm not whining, I love my job!! (unlike frustrated peopel like DCBOE & Erwin it seems..) i just want to keep it like that.. Paying a 74 capt. the same as a 25 year old easy/ryanair FO is just not right.. That's all I'm trying to explain

Boys, frankly you sound like you have a case of green eyes and sour grapes? Your average 747 skipper has gone through dozens of years of training and hard work to get to where he is, in command of (and solely responsible for) a 450 tonne machine worth over 250 million dollars (not to mention all the lives at stake, especially if flying passengers), and quite simply GBP7,000 gross is not even close to adequate. Even 7.000 net would be low.

Anyway fear not, the industry is going to pot from an employee's point of view, and passengers expect to pay less for the airplane ticket than the taxi ride to the airport. The salaries of line pilots in terms of spending power have gone down inexorably over the past twenty years and pretty soon we won't even be making that much...
