Hi Jhonny,

I heard 5250 euro base pay and 1100 euro Per diem plus some for the phone. So around 6390 euro I guess for a FO position.

I have this information as the third link, from a NAX pilot.

It has yet to be confirmed officially...

Since Norwegian is recruiting for another bases than LGW how is it going to work? Are the pilots based in Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris and Gatwick or they will be using some kind of Gateways in order to get pilots rostered from the various bases?

It will be interesting to see what the new pay proposal is for all positions, captain, cruise captain and first officer.

Meester proach,

I am not there , so cannot vouch for it, but there was a period that the time away from home was reported to be fairly considerable, & roster stability appalling, at NAI LH.

I don't know how it is now, but the guaranteed days off are nothing special.

Dear All,

After completion of the online tests, how long does it take to be replied?

Thank you.

Apparently, the promised Dreamyliner lifestyle is not as advertised and no one wants to post roster details.

Those daring to ask OSM or Rishworth to explain protracted recruitment procedures, provide more information on work patterns or other "employment" concerns, may trigger additional screening – the solicitation of “answer all your questions” a possible tactic to reveal those who might later reject the Kjos Kool-Aid. Be very wary of pledges from Norwegian’s inept managers seeking to masterfully hammer home a purported ‘open door’ policy.

The BA announced saturation of specific US routes may damage Norwegian. In many instances the superior BA all inclusive ticket price is less than Norwegian’s a la carte, high costs total. This, combined with the DOT refusing to budge on NA UK’s permit application following a recent EU-US meeting, makes for a not so smiling rock ape:-

“In response to a question from the European delegation regarding the timing of the DOT review process, the U.S. delegation did not provide any deadline or estimated date for further DOT action on the application, noting that it would be inappropriate to speculate on a pending regulatory matter”

With proposed variable bases and the associated multiple employment law jurisdictions, Norwegian’s circumvention employment model will become more novel and more complex. Don’t expect a DOT decision on the NAI or NA UK Foreign Air Carrier permits anytime soon.

Meanwhile, the Scandinavian reputation for quality of working life and trust continues to be willfully eroded.

Two questions for somebody who might know.

What is the job prescription of a relief Captain in Norwegian? What do you do?

And how do you log these hours in your logbook?

Above 20000ft you may be the Captain, should the PIC has taken his rest on long haul flight.
So usualy you keep the right seat, in the event of depressurization, you will act as Commander.
At the sim you should received the appropriate training.

Incorrect WTON, I understand the captain on the norwegian flights is still in command, regardless of being in the crew rest or not. He is not off his duty and is the PIC the whole time, unlike airlines to the likes of Emirates. He just deligates the controls of the aircraft. So no logging of PIC time for the RCA! Would also be fraud if the RCA would log it as such as more people log PIC at the same time otherwise.
And the RCA position with Norwegian is more like that of a senior First Officer who can sit in the left seat. Just the name of the position includes the word captain. The actual role is not!
