truckflyer - What planet do you or the authors of this suggestion live on? The own goal will be on you.

Charity begins at home; unfortunately for you not in the wider workforce. Any suggestion of any personal accusations made against other pilots will only alienate you. An airline going under in Europe may only help the others by removing the competition and that may secure their pilots positions.

Whilst I sympathise with your plight it is your fight do not bring your 'dirty washing' to my door with your nasty threats. As has been said no one has any choice if they are rostered to operate one of these flights.

I only hope your undrstanding is wrong.

Let me see what I am not understanding here.

Jet 2, or other airlines, companies like Titan - are not scheduled to fly Norwegian routes.

However due to an industrial dispute, they take over these routes, which are not company standard. Ok companies like Titan probably an exception, as they are not a regular airline.

Is it not fair to assume that people fighting for their TC's should be upset that they see colleagues replacing them?

Oh sorry, of course, it's dog eats dog, so shut up next time you complain about terrible TC's in aviation! What goes around comes around they say! And everybody gets what they deserve!

Now I repeat, I am not involved with Norwegian, and these are news articles from Norwegian press and information from Norwegian pilots I know.

A footnote, being ignorant of the laws in the UK, however equally this could also be breach of Norwegian law!

Truck flyer.

The legality of accepting such work (in respect of Norwegian law) is down to the airline accountable managers, and not th individual crews.

This thread is about TITAN RECRUITMENT, perhaps you could let it get back to that?

The list of airlines is not accurate, in that Thomas Cook is NOT operating L-YVEO as stated in the list you shared. It is Avion Express. The Thomas Cook pilots have 6 such wet leased aircraft (Smartlynx etc) doing THEIR pilot's work in the busy summer period; not a popular situation as you would appreciate.

If Norwegian were striking in May, most of the aircraft would not be available.

Could you edit and correct please?

Sorry for the continued thread drift.

Perhaps you should apply to Titan truckflyer and see whether they will entertain you.

As NR posted, this is about TITAN recruitment, not Norwegian taking on the world. I would politely suggest, if you wish to continue your cause, you create your own unique thread.

Its free. Go on, you know you want to....

So, Truckflyer, you hijack a thread about another company, threaten and insult pilots of other airlines who are sent to fly sectors almost certainly against their will with no legal option other than to do as their employers instruct, you demand that they risk their families and homes so for your benefit and then accuse them of selfishness. Have I missed something, or are you really as stupid and egocentric as you appear? If you are indicative of NAS pilots as a whole, and I highly doubt so and sincerely hope that you are not, then my sympathies with the group would be exhausted. Certainly you personally deserve none.

Wow, so all that piss and vinegar and he isn't even involved. No way would he refuse to fly if Ann Summer Air rostered him on a wet lease - all bluster. Thanks for the pointer, MOB.

That I was not involved would have been clear if you had read my post, where I stated this clearly.
Furthermore I have never threaten to release such a list/information. This was reported in the Norwegian media and the NPU in addition to various Norwegian pilots that I know.
I was spreading the Rumour (PPRuNe) - Rumour Network!

Equally we should be allowed to have an opinion on such events, or has freedom of speech already been abolished in the UK?

Freedom of expression does not include the freedom to threaten or abuse others. That has always been quite apparent to those without severe character defect.

I repeat I have not threaten, I simply talked of the information that had been written in Norwegian newspapers and what I had heard from Norwegian pilots!

As I said before, don't shoot the messenger!

I am not the one who planned to publish such a list, do I need to spell it out more for you AS?

You were right behind the alleged NPU quote, gleefully posting it and making aggressive and abusive remarks of your own. That those posts have been deleted does not change what you said.

What threats?

Stating the obvious that there is no loyalty regardless in the business, is that an abusive remark for you? For me it is just a fact of life!

You may well be the messenger as you say but it is obvious you are a willing one! Why else would you convey such a message which contained barely veiled threats? We all saw them before they were deleted! To still be defending and justifying your position on this thread days later speaks volumes about you.

Titan are a good company and yes some of their work involves covering other operators who lack capacity or have AOG issues or cannot crew aircraft for whatever reason. If this is due to strike action and I'm rostered to cover such flights, I will do so as it is my job. I would of course have sympathy with the pilots affected but that would evaporate very quickly if I felt threatened in any way!

Willing? No, not at all, I just conveyed rumours I have heard and read!

Willing would be if I posted the list up on PPRuNe!

If I knew I had be rostered to take such a flight, it would have given me a second thought of the implications, yet here it seems it does not really matter!

You would only take offence if you felt yourself threaten by your own actions, not by my words!
Personally I assume this in a few weeks will be blown away with the wind, it will be history, but not forgotten!

And do what with your second thoughts??? Tell your employer you were not going to operate such flights on principle!!?? That would make you a fool as the consequences for your employment would be obvious!!

Whilst truckflyer continues to lurk this thread I'm done with it. For those of us planning to join Titan shortly, it has served its purpose and is now only being ruined by a ridiculous sideshow!

No I have not misunderstood, I know guys on the inside, both in the union and in the airline.

And NPU is making the request to IFALPA -The International Federation of Air Line Pilotís Associations to publish the list.

I am in split minds over these companies and their pilots to be honest. In the end it's an own goal! And does seem a bit hypocritical if you will hear any of those complaining about the race to the bottom.

Well it could effect Titan future!

Also who wants to be associated with a company that are happy to break strike?

What effect will a list have on the future careers of those pilots? If published by IFALPA?

So Socrates, trying to clean up the thread to avoid further drift tread, good work to bring it back! You really have to have a chip on your shoulder!

Don't worry the future Norwegian model will be adapted by most companies in the future, all pilots will be employed trough agencies, no more employment in the traditional way.

Since you seem to want to keep this discussion alive Socrates, do you want me to send you the list when I get it? Or do you prefer I post it here on this thread?

No, Truck, he's just not letting you behave badly, delete your own posts and then play the victim.

Titan Airways recruitment 2017

Hi everyone, I recently attempted the recruitment for Titan, interview and simulator for Airbus 320, but is around one month that I don't receive any communications or feedback. Did someone recently attempt the recruitment or otherwise know if it is a regular routine that?
