Firing proccess in VNA.

Remember when i was warning all colleagues about Vietnam Airlines? Well, the pandemic has been the perfect excuse. Many A321 Captains will be fired now. Remember when i said that First Officers shouldn't apply for Vietnam Airlines? Remember when agencies were saying that pilots for A350/787 will have a fast-track to Captain upgrade? Well, now VNA will fire all of them. Many of these guys accepted to stay at home without salary for all this time, now, after almost one year without flying, they will be fired and their career as pilots will end. Nobody will hire a pilot who is not current and who was not flying for all these months. These guys were supporting the company without receiving 1 cent, trusting in this cheating and corrupt company. Now they found out that they could use the few expats they have left to do the dirty job that local pilots they don't want to do, like flying to Europe or other countries, and when they go back to Vietnam, they need to be 14 days under quarantine, and everything for $1500 maximum. Local pilots will just fly to Saigon and some other places where they don't need to do the quarantine. The managers they didn't reduce their salary, and they use the pandemic as an excuse to fire those pilots who were always doing their best for them, destroying their lives and careers. This is Vietnam Airlines. Someday they will need all these pilots, so i hope they could find a better place to fly, at least those who still current somehow. Many airlines fired pilots, i know, but any airline around the world was waiting 1 year until their pilots couldn't find any other place to fly, because they didn't fly for all these months. This is VNA, this is how they care about their workers... A company for friends and people with money to bribe all those managers with the power. I hope many of you heard my words before, spacially FO's, and for sure today you would have more options than if you choosed VNA. Good luck to everybody!!

Any idea what’s happening in VN? Apparently no recalls. Where as VJ has recalled, or even hired pilots. Seems a bit odd. There must be quite a few expat VN pilots on unpaid leave still…..

Thumbs down

Hi,

Vietnam Airlines currently has the poorest working conditions in Vietnam. Most of pilots are currently resigning including Vietnamese and go to Vietjet, Bamboo being on hold now due to substantial financial problems too.
Regarding Vietnam Airlines, the airline seems not to know where to go, due to heavy financial problems, the operations are simply crazy, the procedures change every week creating an important workload both in flight and at home leading to fatigue and unsafety. The salaries are definitely the lowest in the area (CPT Basic salary: 600USD) and you have vacation, you have almost no salary, no sick leave for the same reasons.
AN AIRLINE TO STRICTLY AVOID AT THE MOMENT

Pretty sad to hear.. was never the top paid job in the area but in my point of view the quality of life was very decent. Hopefully one day things will change again in a positive way for all.

Do you mean 6000 USD or is it really 600 USD?

You clearly read! A basic salary of 600 USD (Six hundred), then pay per scheduled hour
