I understand direct entry contract A320 Captains are being sought.Is this because there are no f/os who meet the command criteria , or have some captains given notice to leave?

What are the conditions , take home pay ,number of days off a month . Are the training department trappers .

Have any contract pilots ever been given permanent contracts.

I wonder if anyone would consider GB as a good operation to work for compared to GO/EASY/RYANAIR

I can't believe thay are going to do this when BALPA and the management agreed not to......

That's promotion down the tubes then!

Anyone else happy about this at GB?

What are the cc going to do about it?

First I'd like to say I'm not familiar with the troubles at GB but from this thread I can assume there are some very important issues that need rectifying.

The reason I didn't think there was a problem is I fly on GB quite often between LGW and AGP and have always found everything to be perfect.

If GB airlines can operate to such a level (in my opinion) with the behind the scenes adversity going well, then, everyone of you deserves to be put on a par with BA.

What I'm trying to say is you must be real professionals, as your attitudes don't show through to the customer, and for that I thank you.

I will be on Flt 6981 on the 16th, AGP/LGW, and I usually try to sit in seat 1C.

Any PPruners on this flight feel free to stop by for a chat.

Keep up the good work, and I sincerely hope you all get the recognition from the company that you deserve.

Does no one at GB actually care about this then?

It's no wonder the management think they can get away with anything when all we do is jsut roll over and play deads!

I would be very interested to hear what people really think about the prospect of more direct entry skippers being recruited. I am aware that by me saying this they are getting some free advertising as well.

Still, I suppose most of you are busy filling out your BA and Virgin application forms (not to mention GO and Easyjet as well), so you don;t have time for this. Don't blame you either.........is theree anyone out there?

Question

In principle the tacker system sounds like a good idea. Where I work the opposite sytem was employed, you wait till everyone leaves then up the money. Chaos till crew levels restored.


Would any one like to comment on what a First Officer at GB is likely to take-home at the end of the month???

From what I hear in the crew bus FOs get about 2500 a month and Cap's about 1000 more, which is a LOT more than any of us down the back! (not compalainin, but you asked). Seen the latest GB seniority list which says 5 FOs are working their notice out so the list is already out of date. Bet its even more optimistic than they think as my boyfriends off to Virgin in August and he hasnt resigned yet!

Well all this just reminds me of last year at GB. The moaning and continual calls for everyone to leave and go off in search of the greater pay check. Alot of guy and gals at GB are being S**t upon, and from my vantage point, it really sucks. But lets remember, easy offered big recently, and where as it was used as a threat, not many went. I hope conditions improve for all of us there, but while we all look for new pastures green, lets try not to rip the rather good operational side of the outfit apart. We all get by, just. All I can say is if you want to see a real s**thole of an existance, trying looking over at the corner of your crew room, where 9 poor bastards take it in the neck for 12 hours, listening to hundreds of people wander into their little corner moaning about the cc, money, slipery bill, and just about anything. Best of luck in your fight guys, I know how hard you lot work, but show some respect from time to time.
