As a matter of interest, could you combine flying as a cruise relief pilot on a 787 with the 737? It could be a way of keeping up the number of landings performed by ULH crews.

It varied by airline, but I believe that ALPA wanted all cockpit personnel to be qualified pilots but that F/E did not need to be qualified mechanics. I think that ALPA were happy for F/Es to...

I suspect that a lot depends upon the deals that airlines get. I'd give very good odds that IAE got a very competitive rate with their recent Max order (or letter of intent). The loco model,...

Some suggestion that they are eyeing the Flybe remedy slots (good luck).
