Airliner in the Nordics

Dear all,
Im flying for some years now in an Airline in the middle-east. Not those fancy big ones you know but a small one you probably never heard of in a country that rhymes with Hell.
Anyway, my Danish wife had enough and got a job offer in Stockholm of all places. Excited and joyful i started to do some research about working in the Nordics. Went for the big ones and even got to talk with a Captains in TUI based in Stockholm and SAS connect based in CPH. They even sent me some contract screenshots.
Boy was i in for a surprise. An FO in the first year in my company will make what a captain in his 6th year is making in SAS. And that is without working that hard. i.e maybe one night sleeping in something other then your bed at home.
Shaky and pale, surely, that cannot be.
Factoring for the difference in cost of living, the quality of life, etc, perhaps the gap is becoming a bit smaller.
But, and here is where you come in, i was compering our actual gross salary (with bonuses and extras and all) with the base salary of SAS and TUI is i saw per the contract.
Can anyone shed some light about the actuall gross salary one can expect?
I wonder, and thats more a philosophical question, how come the differences are so massive? Have you not strong unions? Are the life with 40k SEK really good living in Stockholm?

Thanks,

This Nordic forum has been very quiet for a number of years now, I think you’ll get more answers if you re-post your question in Terms & Endearment above. There are many international pilots working for the SAS AOCs these days so hopefully someone can help. I do know that the pilots working for mainline based in CPH seem to do better financially, the strong DKK and exchange rate to SEK must help.

Er, welcome to the Nordics! Stockholm is perhaps the most affordable compared to the other three (Helsinki, CPH, Oslo)

Yep, that's how it goes. Not just in aviation!

Did anybody tell you to not get too attached to your kidneys or liver? You need to sell that if you want a car, want to watch a movie or anything like that.

Good luck!
