Has anyone actually started conversion training and flying? Or is it recruitment for 2022 start dates?

I've been told they have reinstated the pre-Covid payscale.

I have on good authority that this month there is line training taking place out of a Southern Italian base.

Still covid payscale. A friend of mine just sent me his sched and told me what he'd got in the bank. Way better than it was before as he almost maxed out on duty however the paycheck was about 25% shy of what he'd got for this amount of flying pre-covid.

Edit: what pisses me and many off is that they are hiring and training ppl when about half of the pilots who got the boot last year are still waiting for a spot to come back to however might be the base and the contract. You simply can't just lay off ppl without calling them back first before any other external candidates. Shame on wizz. Shame on everybody who is assisting to this. Trainers should really put their foot down and plain simply refuse to train anyone before their ex-colleagues are getting their jobs back! Now this would be the time. Management couldn't do anything to them. You can't fire all your TRI-s and LTC-s. The whole house of cards would just fall and they know it.

Wrong...they will manage to find LTC flying for free for the sake of “ prestige “ or some other kind of carrot...

Is this the basic FO salary that was pre COVID of 21k euros without the variables and and multipliers? Has that that been reinstated?

Wizz TIA-BER diverted to BUD today due to a technical problem, engine fire was reported according to ATC. The flight (along with another 26 legs in the last five days) was operated with a 23 years old A320 wet-leased from DAT (OY-RUZ). The crew shortage is not cheap for Wizz and its reputation is also at stake because of the leased vintage collection. This aircraft was the second 320 delivered to Wizz 17 years ago as HA-LPA.

Pretty much everyone expect a slowdown in travel throughout the winter. Hopefully nowhere near as big as what we saw last winter, but still considerable. If that happens, Wizz will be right-sized at best in terms of crews, come October. So, it's probably cheaper to lease external manpower for whenever it's needed that keep people on payroll year-round. Many airlines do that.

It is not cheaper, in the ultra low cost business model.
This is a crewing screw up, plain and simple.

@PilotLZ
Maybe, if you plan it in advance (the costs would be still huge which is not very compatible with the mantra of "cash positive flying"). Doing it in a hurry after a week of cancellations put things to a different light though. Besides it does matter what you lease.

Base closures from October. DTM is not surprising (every airline abandoned it, not sure what Wizz thought) but RIX had a long history with a lot of local crew employed.
