There was a Monarch 320 in the circuit at Prestwick last week.

Field in sight, that's funny. Did your mates get a copy of your roster instead of a PFO?

Hi Folks

I phoned HR a couple of weeks back and they are slowly working their way through the stack!
Apparently if we have the hold for interview email we will be called in due course.
I've phoned them a couple of times over last 9 months and they are always so friendly. Bodes well as a company to work for....hope I get to find out

Thats right,

You'll be treated as an adult professional from day 1. No paying for type rating, uniform or Line training. They'll even pay you from day one even while your training! You will continue to be paid even in the quieter winter months and there are extra goodies like pensions, guaranteed summer leave and a respected scheduling agreement.

In short, you are employed by a proper company on a proper contract. The goodwill effort they receive in return from the guys on the frontline is worth much more than the pennies saved on the delightful "flexible" contracts offered elsewhere.

A mate of mine starts his TR in the next few months. He's been in the hold pool for several months.

Contact List

Hi Guys,

Any new swimmers feel like being part of a pre-start contact list?

Just gives us a chance to get any accommodation / obvious basing swaps / banter going far enough in advance to be useful.

I'm happy to look after it, but if you do want to be part of it, drop me a PM.

Monarch Airlines Plans 62-Jet Deal by September in Discount Push - Bloomberg

Hopefully this is promising for those of us "on hold for interview".

Perhaps new Monarch pilots in the next few years will need to get type ratings in the following aircraft instead of the standard Airbus:


I guess we'll find out at the Paris Air Show shortly. That said, mentioning C-Series interest could just be price negotiating ploy by Monarch management to drive down Airbus and Boeing bids....

It's been a little bit quiet on here recently, so might anyone please be able to advise us swimmers as to if there are any updates on the recruitment drive this year?

The last thing I heard that was a combination of a bit of a training backlog and cost wise, which meant that the majority of recruitment for the timebeing was going to be T/R? Obviously, I must stress that was just the rumour I heard though.

As a non-T/R swimmer, I'm very much keeping everything crossed for the timebeing - but with everything being quiet at the moment, I'm wondering if this recruitment drive might be slowly coming to a bit of a halt for this year? Or if the non T/R recruitment is yet to kick off properly?

Any insight or information is greatly appreciated! Many thanks...

Put simply from what I see as a normal line pilot, there appears to be quite a backlog of new recruits still to be brought online. There are defiantly more aircraft and thus more pilots to be to be recruited at some point in the future.

Alloy - thank you very much for your prompt response!

I had been made aware (through the rumour tree) of training backlog over the last few months, and, putting 2 and 2 together, thought that this might have some particular impact upon recruitment over this period.

Either way, I'm hoping that the non T/R hold pools aren't too deep just yet! The news on future recruitment being inevitable is certainly enough to give heart to those of us who are waiting and hoping still.

Very many thanks

Command Board meets this week. 16 more guys to be moved to left (this summer). A chunk of these guys will come from the A300 and will not be replaced. On top of this we are awaiting fleet announcements. Crystal ball stuff but it looks like 1 A300 to go Oct, so a few crews will take some places on A320. I know we have 2 courses booked in for November. We have some non tr on courses in Sept that have been pulled from the hold pool. By the time Oct arrives we will have made our fleet announcements and will have an accurate FTE crewing figure. I would say Jan time would be next course etc so you can see we have a few things to sort before we need to interview further....especially if we decide to go 737. Why bother interviewing lots of FBW guys?

Mesh - as always, thanks for your response and insight!!

I was aware of a couple from the current place of work getting the nod and being given hold pool places for the moment with a view to January/February start dates - so that makes sense. Thank you so much for clarifying the situation though!

Although, I suspect that the annoucement for the fleet renewal and expansion will go in the direction of Airbus in the end! Bearing in mind the cancellation of the 787 orders and what I've heard about the board still viewing Long Haul as being important enough to maintain a presence on the Long Haul routes, I can't help but feel that come the announcement, we'll hear something about A350s in Monarch markings!
