Well....yes! The overwhelming evidence of pilots leaving Jet2 to come to Thomson suggests otherwise.

Guys, enough of the willy waving my dad is bigger than your dad rubbish.

Different companies have different attractions benefits and downsides, back to the thread on those that wish to join Jet2.

Nothing to do with what you suggest. This thread is littered with half truths, uninformed views and peddling 'views' which clearly have an ulterior motive. So give it a rest, Bluepilot.

I think you could replace "this thread" with "this website".

If that's the kind of thing that gets your blood boiling you may be wise to put down your iPad (other non fruit based tablets are available)

Why would you think it makes my blood boil? Just saying like it is. But some pilots don't like to be challenged or called out on their nonsense!

I couldn't possibly say, Cragster old bean...Finally...yes, stop the willy waving (good phrase). Jet2 is work in progress and fine to work for. As is Thomson... I've worked for both. It is not a competition. We are all part of the same industry and I hope and wish for good terms and conditions for all of us.

For the wannabes and this thread is apparently about Jetdeux... Recruitment on going, new aircraft and bases. Interview process old fashioned, be yourself and they want pilots so the sim is important. However...the gentlemen who run the sim are exactly that..gentlemen. They are on your side and create a relaxed and professional tone for you to do your best so good luck to all.

Cheers

They have placed a number of us in a pre-hold pool hold pool.
ie application processed but not interviewed/sim checked.
Sensible system really

All this drivel about "why would you join Jet2 when you could join Thomson" is quite astonishing really.

It depends which seat you are in! I don't know a single experienced 737 Captain that would ever consider P2 at Thomson. However I believe there is one or two recently upgraded YOUNGER guys that are hopping over to the right. Fair enough if that's what floats your boat.

A significant amount of First Officers I have flown with recently are joining Jet2 and Thomson for DIFFERENT reasons.

A few of my ex LHS colleagues have joined Jet2 in STN as DECs. They are quite happy with it all. Like I said joining another company depends entirely for some on what seat you will occupy.

As a mid thirties 737 training captain on circa 120k per year, joining Thomson as a p2 will never be an option for me. However Jet2 as a DEC would be if circumstances were to change.

I've been in the hold pool with JET2 since mid September and got a call about 2 weeks ago offering me a September start so there is sign of movement
I know somebody that was a couple of days ahead of me in the pool that hasn't got a call yet so it can't be first come first served order I don't think....
Good luck to everyone else and be patient.....the call will come!

If jet2 had a 5/4 roster it would be inundated with applications.. Its the only reason Ryanair are able to crew their planes

When I was at Jet2 I was repeatedly told nobody wants a fixed pattern roster, I love my 5/4 roster.

Which base have you been offered Jet123? I suspect the offers might be base dependent.

14% drop in pretax profit for the year ended March 31 and a comment from the chairman, who said."There remains considerable uncertainty around "Brexit" negotiations and the effect these could have, both on our freedom to fly and on our customers' ability to travel to our leisure destinations."

Hi mates,

One question. Is it possible to choose Alicante as permanent Base during FO time and after your Upgrade?

How many time it takes to upgrade as Captain?

Are they flying 4 sector days usually. What percentage per month?

What's the training pay? How long it takes and who pay the expenses?

If someone can help me with this doubts I will really appreciate

Cheers
