No need to post this exact same question in two separate threads.

NJE is not hiring pilots this year. I read elsewhere that KURA went out of business.

Bloody disgrace

Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised but I'm shocked nonetheless. A leopard really doesn't change its spots. I hate Ryanair and everything they stand for. I can only advise everyone to stay away from...
