Wizzair CEO telling crews to fly fatigued
 
Here is the clip of the Wizzair CEO telling his crews to fly fatigued.

Absolute tosser! But nothing unexpected from that clown unfortunately.

Hope it costs him his job.. He seems to be one of the worst out there.

I fear that it may take an accident, and that will be too late!

And then it will be the crew's fault because they failed to report unfit for duty due fatigue, you watch!

There will be no consequences as long crews continue to report fit for their 6th consecutive early and/or late, they are willing to extend to fit those mid-east roundtrips within FTL-s as well as to turn a blind eye for OCC's creative "bookkeeping" on changing previous stby-s to off-s. No one can help them but themselves. Time to grow a pair and stand up against these bullies, at least for yourselves if you couldn't for your colleagues 2 years ago.

I do believe itÖ but I donít believe I just saw that!!

Wizz pilots need to display some strength. They should strike over this. The CEOs fate would be secured overnight if they did it. Eastern European culture used to be one of standing your ground but the current generation? Meh. How did we get to the position where it was acceptable to fly 4 sectors even 4 times a week let alone 6? Honestly. This job has become a world class joke.

Well done Wizz pilots, 1 out of 5. Other airlines could learn from your professionalism. Instead of just whining, you are taking the hard road and pulling the pin. Keep it up. 👍

How can a CEO end up with a request like this on tape? Is he asking to violate aviation rules?

Maybe his judgement was impaired due to fatigue....

I often regret that I didn't push myself hard enough to become an airline pilot. However, when I see something like this I feel I may have chosen the right path after all.

Because working in an office when you are tired is just the same as flying an aircraft when you are fatigued. If the business model requires pilots to fly fatigued to meet the schedule then the business model is a failure. When will the regulators actually regulate and make these airline executives understand that aviation is not the same as driving Uber.

He is listed as a director of UK AoC holder - Wizzair UK , Maybe its time for the UK CAA to pay a visit.

Many CEO's should be in the court soon. And some arrogant sociopaths of them should be paid a very high price for how they treated people.

"Unfortunately", it seems that fatigue is not so much of a factor in air safety.
It should be, but apparently airlines which make their crew fly very fatigued have track records that are no worse than airlines with better conditions.

What regulators?

What regulators?
I think the poster might be thinking of the organisation that relieves AOC Operators and flight crews of exorbitant amounts of cash and seemingly does [email protected] all by way of return.

Superpilot 9th Jun 2022 10:05

Now I understand the NASA like assessment process for experienced pilots....
