As far as I am aware, the new contract is of benefit to SFO and Captains but not for FOs.

For those joining Wizz, you will have no choice but to accept the new contract... or turn down the job.
​​​​​​Some guys should have signed the new contracts then. The new figures should be known now...

How low cost is low cost at Wizz? Uniform provided? Car park? Crew food, and more importantly tea, coffee and water? Medicals reimbursed etc?
Uniform, car park, crew food and everything you mentioned is provided. Medicals as well.

And to the credit of Wizz, those at LTN base who aren't yet approved for the LTN staff car park get their parking reimbursed when staying in approved car parks near the airport.

Not everything - you will get a bottle of water, and if you ask a cup of hot one, but bring your own coffee or tea.

Never had to bring my own coffee or tea in my tenure there. I must have impressed the cc then? 🤔

To be fair though, £2 will buy you about 180 tea bags in Tesco (other supermarkets are available)

Is it lower than the other competitors? (SAIL, RYR, Ezy...)
LTN Base:
Around 6200Ä (5470£) after UK tax and social security. Calculated with 24 short sectors.
Around 5800Ä (5110£) after bond deduction.

Around 6700Ä (5900£) with 24 medium sectors.
Around 6200Ä (5470£) after bond deduction.

(Average salaries calculated by dividing yearly salary by 12 and deducting 40% of tax and SSC. Yearly salary calculated with 11 months of 24 sectors. The monthly salary will be a bit higher, except when you're on leave.)

Did a quick calculation based on my roster using the new salary scheme, as a Captain I would expect £10000 gross for the month of June.
The figure there is based on ONE roster.
Also assumes year 1 Captain with no seniority bonus.

I'd rather they didn't give me any hassle about refunding my medical, sorting out yearly parking then have them say "but we give you tea"
Yes they do supply milk and sugar...............

Yep. If you plan at staying at EZY or WUK for the long term, you'll be much better off at EZY.

You have loyalty bonus and inflation-linked raises in easy. Much different structure as well, in wizz more sectors based, in easy higher basic salary (more than 100k pounds basic I believe now, in the UK, even higher in europe).

The pick season has started, planners schedule pilots for two weeks/one month out of base flying without any previous notice neither request. People get crazy about it, looks like every body is on a floating contract during the summer...

Bucharest

Some one based in Bucharest can explain which is the net income that you can expect as FO or SFO.

And the positive and negative things of Bucharest.

Thanks for all of the info! Its much appreciated.

Final question, I promise.

Im looking at coming to Wizz with no jet time, and minimal cmd time for a DEC position. Do many people fail the training at Wizz? Ive always had a good training record, but its a big leap, so would like to know there is support rather than a chopping culture.
