Try Vietjet, at least that bunch of idiots will pay you a lot more .
so Vietjet pay more than JPA and VNA ? Please could you tell me the average ball park monthly salary of a Vietjet captain.

thanks

Since when was flying ĎAussie rulesí a bad thing? We are safe, disciplined and adhere to SOP. Unlike the rest of the circus in Vietnam who choose money over safety and security. Good luck to you, personally Iíd rather not end up in a smoking hole.

So in that case because your so called ďsaferĒĒ (thatís objective by the way) your happy getting paid less for flying the same routes. Ah yes we donít work for more money, what a stupid concept.

We all work for money! What Iím alluding to is the fact that we donít fly 200 hour months or pay for command upgrades. Clearly youíre one of the circus monkeys Im talking about who would do a trick for a penny.

Basic + 100 hours + 50 sectors gives you 12.850 USD, not including perdiems of 50 USD per layover, 80 if it is international. Depending on your agency, time in the airline and performance you may get an additional couple of hundred, 500 tops.

These trips into the green are becoming as regular and frequent as the monsoon rain. While runway excursions do happen all over the world, this is like the fifth or sixth in 18 months for VNA (correct me if I am wrong) ? If a certain trend here is not obvious, than the powers in charge are blind. In any case, another public humiliation of "blame the pilots" and every thing is fixed again. Till the next time.

And Ups... they did it again...

This oneís fantastic; actually occurred just a few days before the one on top:

Accident: Vietnam A321 at Vinh on Jul 16th 2018, foreign object damage during roll out, temporary runway excursion

I am sure all is explainable... if I was an insurance underwrite, Iíd be more than worried. How is VNA still allowed to operate?
They should give Airbus a big kissy; the 321ís a freakiní truck..!!

hello all, any 787 drivers out there mind answering some questions pm or public? 78 rated and current, but wife and I looking for some new scenery after staring into the abyss of sand for too long now. 1 older child overseas so no schooling required, only got 5/6 years left so not looking for a long time just a (relativity) good time.

-anyone on the 6/2 pattern have a roster or mind sharing some info on the usual trips/hours
-staff travel for myself and spouse only or extended to children? J class ID90 available?
-how are trips, the 350 getting the cream of the crop? or still some good destinations on the 78?

any other info is greatly appreciated.

cheers f.m

Yep.
Just as Flying Midget put it. Looking for any info on the 789 skipper deal.
Is the take home about the same for the 6/2 and the 3/1? That is about 13K usd?
Hows the lifestyle for a wife and self only.
Is it easy for the wife to commute into Vietnam on a monthly or two monthly basis.
If given a choice which base is better. Hanoi or Ho Chi Min.

Kindly humour me gents. Looking for valid info please.
Thanks

80% Hanoi and Saigon, maybe once in a while if your lucky you could fly to Korea, the viets take all the good flights to bring duty free to sell back home... who would have thought it

Guys I applied for the captain job on the 787 and was told by the agent in Rishworth that Vietnam airlines has stopped the hiring process in order to evaluate their needs.
Do you guys have another kind of info?

Good morning everyone, i have had the chance to read thru ALL of the threads here, and i must say very helpful info thru so many pages.
As the time has come, for me to venture into the unknown, and basically look to spend some more time closer to my wife home in asia, i am far too old for the uncertainty of china. I.e. medicals or unfairness atleast dispalyed some years ago.

Having said that im am current and rated on the airbus, looking for any guidance as to how VNA roster patterns look on the 6 weeks on ? You can post on public or p.m. if you wish.

Vietnam Airlines is dying. Local guys are already half way to Bamboo and/or VietJet. Expats to China and/or Middle East.
Corruption is apparently more dangerous for Vietnam and effective then any known weapon system.
Latest idea how to keep expat pilots happy? We have a new hotel in Hanoi (it used to be Sheraton). Local, 3 stars (contract guarantees 4 stars) in the middle of construction works around. Sweet dreams...

Just curious doesn't VNA have a huge fleet order already? I believe i read they are looking to atleast double in size, or is that just smoke and mirrors? Seriously considering to join 😰😰 Is it only first officers leaving or Captains as well?
