The bottom line is that we will fight tooth and nail to prevent DECs as long as we have promotable FOs - a concept that exists in every other respectable airline of note
.

I think the 'other is in the wrong place here, I suggest this should read:

The bottom line is that we will fight tooth and nail to prevent OTHER DECs as long as we have promotable FOs - a concept that exists in every respectable airline of note.

There you are, much more accurate.

Look at the list of easyJet directors on their website. Is there one Director connected with the actual operation of the aircraft?

No? So what is not what is easyJet about? Flying aircraft or sales and marketing.

If easyJet pilots want real improvement in their lot they should choose the best representatives they can. For example a DEC arguing against DECs will be laughed out of town.

I suggest all easyJet pilots watch these. Very accurate.

Note the line: 'Your seniority system means you have no leverage'.

By the way he who cannot be named, keeps praising my exploits and naming me. Do you think he is allegedly 'grooming' me for something. I hope not as that would be very bad form here on PPRuNe old chap.

And what am I doing here? Posting comment on a freely accessable bulletin board available on the world wide web. This bulletin board and this topic are freely available to everyone, anywhere in the world regardless of creed, colour (including orange) age etc etc. This is freedom. It does not belong to easyJet, easyJet pilots or the lecturing, condescending, holier than you, Captain 'who's name I cannot mention but he is a baldy Scottish Training Captain', of easyjet.

Bye bye,

DEC's will be back at EZY yesterday if the DEC T&C's are <90% of the existing ones...

Hell, I might even apply.



I imagine such T&C's will be resisted with the same kind of conviction the Flexicrew contracts were resisted with...

This is PPRuNe. Not the Womens Royal Auxillary Balloon Corps so dry your eyes darling.
Quite.
However I was referring to the lack of intelligence in your "arse" comment. Not really interested in the emotion you wish to portray either. As stated, I expected better of you, based on having read your postings in the past.

I was calling for an end to the childishness displayed here, but like as not it won't happen. Hence the WRABC would probably be an excellent analogy. You could learn much from Leo HC regarding provocation: he is at least intelligent and extremely funny therein.

As for the subject of this thread, the question has been answered: yes there will, but only for a select few with the correct low number of hours, the correct weighting in the appropriate banking circle, and the money to support same, and the correct qualification from the approved school (pun intended). The rest of us need not apply.

I certainly will be in discussion with our BALPA reps about a more united front
Will you also be in discussion about EJs pay to fly scheme? It is p2f no matter how deep you bury your head in the sand.

Wether you like it or not revealing inside information IS a sackable offense and hence not very clever. I could have made the effort to spell his username but frankly I could not be bothered.

Digs at spelling in PPRuNe = yawn!

In a decade of working in this company I know of only 3 Captains who "left". All DEC's.
Have you actually met anybody who wanted to join?

Apart from..........

The ex-legacy lot who are pension topping.
The GB pilots who relucantly came via the take-over.
The CTC/OAT cadets who are placed here (and really dont care where they start with 100k of debt and interest building.)

Or.......

The former BMI pilots who came over purely for DEC positions in 07/08...

I see that Easyjet pilot recruitment page now has links to CTC, OAA and Parc which would suggest that they need pilots. As far as I can see though still no opportunity for expierienced FOs unless rated on the Airbus. Would I be correct in saying that there is still no way in for experienced Boeing FOs?

You should add also Airbus FOs since it's better to hire willing to pay FOs with no-TR then hire TR FOs who wants to be paid! P2F program it's better for the schools, the company and ... in case of an other downturn it's Easy to send people home since they are just kids!

The boeing fleet number will be down to 2 in the early spring, so pretty much a plane of the past in orange land.

This is frustrating!

I have approaching 2000 hours, lots of multi crew hours on biz jets and light turboprops but no airline is interested in me unless I pay them for training.

What choice have I got? Been made redundant twice in last 2 years, haven't worked full-time in over a year, only crumbs of freelance but still current on type with class 1 medical.

Too far gone down the road to pull out of aviation and almost 40 years of age so time not on my side!

What choice have I got other than the dreadful P2F schemes to get flying again?? Apparently I am too old for the CTC scheme and have "too much" experience!

I bet if I enquire I'll be too old for the P2F schemes as well!

At a recent briefing with a manager i was told that the aim in Ezy is to up the crewing levels, so we will have 6 crew pr aircraft in stead of the current 4.8 (or thereabout) we have now.

That put together with new aircrafts coming, lots of upgrades, a fair amount of people leaving and better cadet contracts in other airlines, one can only hope we will run out of people willing to work on the cadet contracts so more experienced guys can join as well.

I hasten to say that the info was delivered verbally, so no guarantee their plans will still be the same tomorrow.

Cool

Hello,

I'm qualified on airbus 320 (but no hours on type) and I would like to fly for easyjet.

I'have been on easyjet website and found that : Pilot Careers - Careers in the Air - easyJet Careers

CTC flexi crew
Parc Aviation.

How does CTC flexi crew work?Is there a chance they call me? I can't find anything about easyjet on Parc website.

Thanks

BR

Speak to Kallipso - he seems to know about company policy, even if he can't spell. Alas, Superpilot is right as far as I know - you will, generally speaking, require 150 hours on-type. There are exceptions, but that would only be if you were an experienced pilot on other commercial types (146, 737 etc). Hope that helps.

Last I heard it was 500 hours on type required. Possibly things have changed and maybe NSF is more up to date than me but I would check with the company first.

BBC Business News

From BBC Business News:

Budget airline Easyjet has seen profits almost triple on rising passenger numbers and cheaper fuel.
The carrier made profits of 154m in the 12 months to September, up from 55m a year earlier.
Passenger volumes rose 8% in the year to 49 million, helping to push its share of the European market up to 7.6% from 6.5% a year earlier. Fuel costs were down 9%.
The company also said it would pay its first dividend - but not until 2012.
Europe strategy
Easyjet is benefiting from the continuing migration of passengers on continental Europe away from national carriers towards budget airlines - a pattern already well established in its home market Britain.
"We see clear opportunities for Easyjet to continue to take market share as charter traffic continues to decline, as weaker short-haul carriers retrench or fail and as new infrastructure capacity comes on stream," said Easyjet's new chief executive, Carolyn McCall, commenting on the full-year results.
She expects low-cost carriers like her company to make further headway in France, Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands and Portugal in the coming months, pushing budget airlines' share of these markets to around 50%.
In anticipation of this growth, the airline announced that it would buy another 24 planes by September 2013, representing a 12% increase in its fleet.

Will we see improved T&C'S?

Im glad I turned down the offer to pay 34K for TR and line training to fly as a contract pilot for them..... as this news would have rubbed salt in a very sore bank account.. Takes the piss.

Rant over.
