The chances of a DEC leaving TUI for another airline are much lower than a DEP. Seems unfair on the face of it but makes sense.

There's a difference between being bonded (TCX DEC??) and paying for your rating out of your salary every month for 3 years (every other non-rated joiner).

Look up the page at the BA thread and you will realise Balpa had no real part in this decision. Let's be real, I'm sure the CC etc were TOLD what was happening, but they don't have any power.

TUI had no choice, fail to act and J2 would have snapped up those 100 pilots and be breathing even deeper down their collars than they already are, particularly at MAN. J2 will have their own challenges at merging the TCX guys trust me. The good news is these TCX guys have got jobs where they want to be based, the 'bad' news is that seniority has again been exposed for what it is, a sham, at least in the UK anyway.

The new DEC Pilots are joining the Seniority List as per their DOJ - We've seen this before and it all comes out in the wash. This is way easier than a regular merger UK or USA

Talent Pool

Anybody know what the current situation with the 'Talent Pool' is? How long can you expect to wait for an offer?

yup, got the email saying into the Talent Pool. Iím scratching my head slightly as they said they would certainly phone by the end of the month rather than email.

TUI

Can anyone share what a typical roster is like on the 737, in particular Manchester base? Are there many planned overnights? Do many people actually do the dual rated with 787 or stay on the 73?

Thanks!
