A friendly company which I have had the good fortune to have experienced on both sides of a fence.

My wife worked for them as cabin crew for a decade and I had the good fortune to be able to fly their A320 a few times, just after it was brought into service. I hope to do so again.

The company has survived through good and bad years, has an excellent reputation amongst it's clients and treats staff fairly, humanely and honestly.

It is rather like a family. There are occasional squabbles, but life carries on.

It isn't "Big Airways". You'll need to have a thick skin, "can do" attitude, be adaptable to change and always be willing to muck in.

A good place, with some great people and a huge variety to just about everything they do.

I can recommend it.

Thinking about it you are probably right.. I will give it till Friday then drop them an email. I hope we get some news before then. I would love to go back to a charter airline but will have to make some decisions soon...

If you desperately want to "come home", this may not be the job for you.

Sure, you'll be UK based, but any of TA's frames could be sent anywhere at short notice, or indeed, be contracted away from base for long periods.

A good company but you have to be flexible. Staff remunerated and treated well. Think of it like a corporate jets airline and you will understand!

Well, "pending" 2 also, who would have thought...

I've been browsing a bit for living costs around Stansted but with no real luck.

Someone could give me some figures on real living costs VS expected salary out there? For a "survivor" profile. (at the moment my living costs, all included, in SEA are like 320€ a month for 2k€ salary)

Thanks so much for any insight. (feel free to pm)

No idea about salary, I'd guess for the FO permanent positions, around 2,700 take home pay (after tax), that's 3,400 according to today's rate. The contractors will no doubt take home a little more.

Your current living costs are less than what I've paid in third world countries! How do you do it? You can bet on around 700 (about 900 per month). Of course depends on how you live.

Mine says pending 2 - Information and yesterday I received and email from the company saying " We have a number of permanent positions available and will shortly be in contact with a number of you to attend an interview and SIM assessment."

Anyone got a call from the company for an interview? Anyway the application are closed now since the deadline was 20th of October. I hope they'll contact us soon.

What about the experience on type? I have 350 on type and 500 total.

gargy, I thought minimum requirements were 1,000 total and 500 on type? The contract position minimums are even higher (1,500 total, 500 on type).

Jim, a lot of us would like to know the same but are probably to worried about bothering someone in HR with the question! My guess is it reflects the stages our applications have gone through internally speaking, or perhaps the numbers relate to: Definitely, maybe, no (anyones guess which way around).

Understand some interviews have already taken place and a few offers made. Not sure about numbers. Heard that a number of job offers have gone to ex MON guys. Spoke to a guy who used to work for them seasonally. He says the plan is for them to move away from the historically seasonal/zero hours contracts onto more permanent secure employment contracts but only time will tell if that transpires.

I hope he's right as I'm not remotely interested in either seasonal or zero hour contracts!

After sending a few emails to the careers email address and not getting a reply for an update. I tried calling HR and it went to voicemail, once put through.

If they have interviewed and made some offers, it would be good to know either way the status of the application. Hopefully they might send something out soon from the online system.
