Has it come down recently?? I know 2 guys who work there who had told me that they average about 3600 - 3800 and if they fly 100 hours it would be near 4000. I remember hearing that base pay was in the neighborhood of 2200 or so. Perhaps the new hires are being paid less? I will check my sources.

Kuwait's Jazeera keen to pursue carrier acquisition
David Kaminski-Morrow, London (16Feb10, 13:57 GMT, 232 words)



Kuwaiti budget carrier Jazeera Airways is to pursue plans to acquire a Middle Eastern airline this year as part of a strategy to reinforce its presence.
The carrier confirmed its intentions following its agreement to take over its closely-tied Sahaab Aircraft Leasing operation.
Jazeera Airways has not publicly identified a carrier target but has been seeking to expand through other bases.
The takeover of Sahaab, which leases Airbus A320s to Jazeera, gives the airline a "platform" to expand into other areas over 2010-11, says the carrier.
It states that an airline acquisition is among its plans, and a spokesman adds that Jazeera is looking at candidates within the Middle East region - but that it is giving away few other details.
Such a strategy could parallel that of Sharjah-based low-cost carrier Air Arabia, which has expanded into Morocco and Egypt through airline and travel company joint ventures.
Jazeera also expects the Sahaab agreement - which will be completed by the end of March - to give it access to leasing markets worldwide, as well as a "predictable" revenue stream. For the first quarter of 2010, Jazeera expects Sahaab to contribute KD1.2 million ($4.1 million).
The airline will be "even more strongly capitalised to pursue its strategic ambitions", adds chairman Marwan Boodai.
Sahaab will have at least 38 A320s by 2016, as a result of Jazeera's total order for 40 of the type.

Hi Kinjfa
so what if this F/Os are leaving you should know why ?
they are runnig behind the KDs they did not expect to get that much money when they joinned JZR am i right or not?
now the flying hours are less so they started to complain
but anyway it s almost 3 times what they use to get in spain even with less hours So thanks GOD.
for the 2 A/C grounded make sure that it is better to ground an A/C when no business .
-Ryanair to ground 10% of fleet over the winter???????By Danny Fortson, Business Correspondent
-Lufthansa to ground aircraft and reduce ground staff working times??????

Cool

Dear Cpt 320. I am one of those spanish pilots and just to say that I am alright here but speaking money wise......... I wish I got tree times more then I used to do. I used to be based in Tenerife doing most of the times the 4 hours sector flights. Working more or less 10 days a month and earning minimum 5000 euros net a month (summer month around the 6000 and if I went to Riyadh or any other place a lot of money more!!!). That is after tax etc. Here in Jazeera I am earning around the 3000 kd IF I am flying 70 hours. That will mean 7500 euros. But working much harder, no social security etc. So with other words after deducting 30% for security payment I will be earning the same as in Spain and even less. But also I am paying here a lot of money more for rent of my apartment, grocery shopping, school fees etc......... Even going to the beach where my family can walk in beach wear (no public beaches) cost me money.

So in my opinion Jazeera Airways should do something about the salary like increasing the school allowance, house allowance, give proper medical insurance for the whole family and not only to me. Loss of licence insurance etc.

I am very grateful to Jazeera because they gave me the opportunity to work here and to be honest I am perfectly all right. No reasons for me to leave the company but I can perfectly understand why other colleagues are leaving. Wataniya Airways and Kuwait Airways are offering a much better package and are just next door. Emirates, Etihad and Qatar can offer a much more challenging career for more or less the same money.

Please hopefully you are right and soon they will give us 3 times more then what we where used the earn in Spain. That will make me for sure a very happy pilot here and my wife a very happy shopper!!!

HI ECHIE
Sorry I didnt mean it
But I think we have to be patient and the things will get better hopefully
soon.
the global economic crisis that hit the world is still here and all the companies are complaining except the ones you named.
But any way too much politics doesn t solve anything.
ALL THE BEST FOR EVERYBODY and GOOD LUCK
