First2 Resource ? ? Gawd knows, another bunch of fly-by-nights trying to divert money/contract through a different office, next door to the one that offered the same job last week.

Airline almost certainly that perennial "favorite" Small Planet , as they were advertising just a couple of days ago for CC in MAN & LGW.

And, Ref prev threads, you know all about them right . . . . . . . .

As suggested, likely to be Small Planet. Flying for a number of UK tour operators, mainly Greek Islands ex MAN, LGW and some of the Regions. Money is average.....but the flying, in the main, is fun.

Just be grateful that they have not twigged that this could be offered P2F.

Nice over priced TR followed by 6 months contract on block hour rates.

I'm sure there would be no punters!

I heard money is in the region of 3k pm before tax for fo's, I also heard they may not pay for LGW/man parking, also they were after guys to work 3 months full time during peak summer and part time/ job share the other 3 months, I know a jobs a job but it does feel like they are pushing the boundaries as far as T's & C's go.

Soprano Have you applied....? or heard anything back if you have? I have heard the same about salary but its apparently paid offshore ,that sounds pretty bad about the parking as I cn imagine how expensive it will be for a whole summers worth of parking.

They advertised, and re-advertised, and advertised again. Finally, preferable to take guys with ZERO experience on type, who will pay THEM to fly/ work for free at least.

Capt's pay is 4500, and they tried to offer me 4000. . . draw your own conclusions.

From my short exposure to them, there is very little planning, and what there is, is at very short notice.

SPA have a base in MXP, but haven't heard of any presence in Spain, so, could be ?
I can't think of any other Classic operators with presence in these two countries, either based, or as wet-lease.
