Overnights are in the aircraft, daystops in hotel.
The roster is 8/6​​​. They currently fly only for Amazon and apparently they fly close to 50 hours per month. The morale is very good.

For the Belgians the roster is random, around 30-35 hours per months on the FedEx network. Three or four weekend stops, otherwise weekends are off, unless there is a horse charter or NATO flight. Also here the morale is good.

Of course they are! 🤦🏻‍♂️ Sounds quite good.

So, is it there and backs or more of a tour? Thanks 👍🏻

Thats not correct, ASL Ireland fly also for DHL Express. It depends on what aircraft type you are assigned.

True, but ASLI are looking for 737 pilots.

I don't know about it with the Amazon contract, but if it's "there and backs" then you can expect a daystop at a destination in the network, return to EMA, and then daystop in another place in the network.

Again, Thanks!

This would be on the 737, preferably Southend based. Just trying to understand if the 8 on is potentially 8 days away from home? TIA

Unfortunately, I can't further expand on that but hopefully a 'colleague' is reading this and will help. I would expect to be on standby every once in a while.

Where I work a 4 day (it's the max I get) rotation is always a return to the main base every night, rest 2-3 hours and then fly to another destination. Some that live nearby go home, otherwise we rest at base as our employer gave us facilities for that.

Be aware that all the info I've given you are from a friend that works for ASLI, so it's second hand info.

The Airbus fleet is flying for DHL in Asia. They have recently brought an A330 back to Europe that will fly for DHL. I don't know what the A300 is doing at the moment, I guess also DHL. The last I heard about the ATR fleet is that is currently grounded - or most of it - due to Covid-19.
