Maybe he's secretly factored in a few day off payments @ 700e a pop!

What is the effective tax rate that you pay on that Captains salary for someone based in Spain for examples. The figures quoted are 10,500 gross. SO back of a fag packet maths says thats 10.5K X 12 = 126K a year. What is the overall rate of tax on that sum? 20% 30% 40% ?

What is the average take home per month, net? about 6K?

According to a colleague that went there, (Spain ) around 7 to 7500 a month after taxes. No loss of licence or medical care, however, this can be arranged through the contract " agency"

LGW

Could anyone shed any light on the contracts in place for Captains at LGW? How is the Parc contract taxed. Is there a lower tax on the flight pay or is it all taxed as full income? Also any info on the permanent contract for LGW would be much appreciated. Many thanks to all kind enough to contribute.

I would suggest that you call the contract agency as ppl on this website will have very little knowledge whether you have a chance or not.

some of these people are getting interviews directly through DY...
You mean with less than the minimum requirements? (1500 total time, 737 rated,...)

Well then I think you just answered your own question. It seems you do have a chance of getting in. Now you just have to find out how they did it

The BLH payment for Captains is 17 how much you earn really depends on your base, but BLH for flying are only part of it, you also get 4 x BLH for each standby duty 4 x17 = 68 and 10 days is not unusual in say LPA where there are few flights, but very long duty days on say ARN or OSL and back and your BLH is from report.

When you start you are allocated an agency, but can change after one month to the agency of your choice from the 3 used.

There will be ongoing recruitment for the foreseeable future to feed fleet expansion (10 new 738 delivered so far this year with a further 4 due before year end) with more deliveries due in 2014.

It is worth visiting their investor relations website at lot of useful info on their, being a public company they are very transparent

Hi there,
Do you have any ideas about screenings to NTR FO guys?
Is that "Extensive experience on similar types may be considered (MD80, A320 series etc.)" true? And, how much would be that "extensive"??

Thanks much

john_smith - that is about the only way Norwegian are going to make a sustainable profit, so it seems like a good ploy. I wait with interest to see if a single one of their Airbus slots are ever actually used.

I have flown with them three times. Very nice experience on all three occasions. Text message to confirm you are checked in, text message to let you know if they running behind schedule, well turned out crew, Free WiFi on board, and three less seats for extra leg room. And no "big sell" via the dreaded PA. Aircraft was full on all three occasions with 180 or so very content passengers.

They are the third biggest budget operator in Europe and are streets ahead of Easy and worlds away from Ryanair with regard to passenger experience IMHO.

Weather it's sustainable remains to be seen.

As a matter of interest, do Norwegian seem to have any intention of taking up any of their Airbus orders, or was it, as some have suggested, merely a ploy to buy up production slots and then sell them later at a profit?
You cannot "sell" production line slots. They do not belong to the prospective customer, they belong to the manufacturer.
