VietJet Air "NEW" Improved Terms

Has anyone seen the new T&C's for VietJet Captains?
They have done away with their housing and transport allowances which were ridiculous compared to market prices. The package is something like:

With Flight time in excess of 6000hrs:

Basic: $4600

Hourly pay: $65

Sector allowance: $35

Overnight: $50

So if u do 70hrs and 30 sectors a month, u can make 10k easy.
Also they guarantee 50hrs and 25 sectors, so whether u fly or not, u still get around 9k.

This is pretty good for Vietnam, wonder if anyone knows their current recruitment status??

..So ideally you'd want to do the shortest sectors as much as possible. That'd
mean SGN-CXR-SGN twice a day, (which from memory was 2 hours scheduled
near enough) giving you 4 hours payable per day for about 8 hours duty.

If you did a double CXR five days a week that's 80 hours for the month for 80
sectors. The math shows you'd make $12,600 pm. Of course that's nothing to
write home about but its not too shabby either.

But doing a Cam Ranh twice a bloody day would drive me up the wall - but if
they threw in a few perks like free interline to BKK on my 2 weeks off and a
free beer tab at the Omni even I'd be tempted!

not for long.

Dr. Hung (husband of Mdme. Thao) just signed a SIM training agreement with WCC Sim Center in Manila last Monday.

Yes nothing so big to write home about, but considering Vietnamese living costs and with the commuting contract, its not a bad deal at all. Anyone who has info on their next intake?

That all sounds grand-as I understand it this is a commuting type contract of 6/2-so what happens to the 3 months off a year?

Do you simply receive the base salary or an average of some sort?

Very valid point Tanua... I guess it might be the base pay plus the guaranteed 50 hrs and 25 sectors?

Why do you not ask Tanua where the true P2F pimps are hanging out.

The true answer;
Vietnam Airlines
Jetstar Pacific
