mary meagher - I am sure you mean well with your contribution, but it is unfortunately typical of some of the contributions here from non-aviators. You do not understand how aviation safety works -...

Just to concur, there is a shortage in the States of pilots with 1500 hrs TT - and that will sort itself out pretty quickly. There is also a shortage of type-rated and available A320 and B737NG...

There are some very interesting arguments here, and there are some good points well made on both sides. ManUtd1999 - there are plenty of opportunities at easyJet for those that want them. I would...

This is just the thin end of a thick wedge waiting for those working in China as foreign pilots. There are few nations on Earth with more rampant racism than China and they will kick you out as...

I am 54 and intend to enjoy commercial flying until I am 65. I do not accept it is a 'young man's game' - it is a game for anyone who has the heart to still do it. I have no ex-wives, but I do love...

As one who has been very critical of Ryanair, and much maligned for it, I think the advice by bigdaviet and CheekyVisual is absolutely first class. A 737 or Airbus rating is a path to the future,...

FANS - we can only talk of the world we live in now and not what may or may not be the case ten years from now. There is not a person on this planet who could say with any certainty what may happen...

As one who has often championed easyJet's cause, and been much criticised for doing so, I have to say that I cannot condone what has happened here. Contrary to the statements of the conspiracy...

DollComber - very sad to hear that. It appears that we are not taking any non-rated pilots this year, which is a huge disappointment given last year's recruitment debacle. I cannot justify the...

clunk1001 - absolutely delighted for you. So let me understand this correctly - you can't stand people who boast about what they earn, but you are desperate to tell us all that you earn more than me...

ReallyAnoyed - my apologies. I did indeed forget the loyalty bonus. As a 10 year plus Captain I receive once per year 15% of my basic salary plus my 17.5% for being a TRE. At today's salary that...

antonov09 - The wonderful thing about PPRuNe is you can make statements with no basis in reality and the gullible and foolish just lap it all up as fact. In your case, however, you are actually are...

Another two-bit, rock bottom, abysmal airline with truly dreadful standards of safety. Although it does not operate to the EU, it is on their list of banned airlines. The list of air carriers banned...

I think we all know that there will always be a continuous supply of wet-behind-the-ears, young 200hr pilots desperate to do any flying job at any salary and to accept any terms and conditions. That...

There is no doubt that Vueling pilots are paid way below the market rate, and I have no doubt their senior management are paid way above it. The problem facing Vueling, and indeed all pilots, is...
