It's charter.... Flights will always be mostly full.

The fact that there are reduced numbers of flights is another matter. If there are fewer flights to TFS, DLM, PMI, AGP, and all the other favourites, the fact that the remaining flights are full is not the indication you are looking for..

almost all flights are full or very nearly so.
Whilst looking good, it means nothing. Yield is what is important, how much the company is left with having covered ALL costs of the flight and the Companies infrastructure.

A flight could be full of people paying a tenner a seat; but sure as eggs is eggs, the coffers would soon empty.

"...it means nothing" -which is exactly what I said to start with.

"This site festers.." -What do you hope to achieve by posting here, PAPI ? You have no apparent interest in T's and c's, just seem want to make abrasive and insulting comments

Don't fret Shot One, most people understood you perfectly well. I don't think Papi 74 is the sharpest tool in the box and covers his (it's usually a bloke isn't it) shortcomings with abrasive bluster. Ignore.

I began asking a simple open ended question for the gaps to be filled and was met with a patronising response. Am I to let that slide and just say thanks?

I did do a search thank you horsebox, but it is usually worth seeking a professional opinion from inside. In this incidence, clearly a waste of time as anonymity has yet again turned people into arholes.

Bernoulli, you should look at wiping that brown dinosaur muck off of you nose prior to report tomorrow - not a good look me old china!

Wishing you a very happy Christmas.

I attended the assessment day early 2016.

Consisted of 45min HR interview and a 10 min tech quiz. Nice and basic.
Then 45 min simulator session with a TCX rated SFO/CPT in the LHS.
Tracking in/out bound from VOR, RAW data ILS to minimums & GA.
Handed over control, did ECAM for Engine failure, then LOC Only NPA on single engine to land.

Got a job offer after coming out of the sim, I can only assume because the start date was coming up to 3 months away (notice period for current airline).

There were 4 of us that day, all of us had jobs waiting unless we messed up I heard. Two didn't get in due simulator fails.

Looking forward to starting later this year.
