The three days of my selection must have been the exception to the rule than, as I didn't meet a single easyJet guy the whole way through the process. There were plenty of Flybe, Jet2 and Ryanair guys. Of my friends at easyJet, I don't know of one that has decided to jump ship to BA. Then again, they're all fairly senior and living in low pressure regional bases.

I've been in 3 times over the last 12 months and with the exception of one guy from Wizz and two from Aer Lingus, the remainder (circa 25) were EZY. No surprises really. I guess you attended a day that was for non rated only then.

The more Fo's that leave Easyjet the happier the management will be ! They can replace them overnight with more self funded cadets willing to pay to sit in the right hand seat on ever inferior contracts . CTC & Oxford have a never ending stream of these & are constantly increasing their output .

DEC's are a good thing for the airline & going to be an increased requirement over the next few years . Good luck to all.

Agree with the above. Very little info on basic pay, pension, leave, extras, etc.. Does anyone have any info? Would be appreciated! Thanks

Capts are 5453 fixed pattern in the UK. 97 basic + sector pay. Lol is 1.3 basic. Pension 7%. Loyalty bonus depends on length of service up to 15%. Perf bonus annual - currently max 5% normally around 2.5. Staff travel (pretty useless). No medical cover. Leave 25 days
Basics ok, the rest isn't great as you can see. They reckon they need 110 Capts next year. The real figure more like 150. There are around 600 FOs chasing those positions and the management are confident they will be filled internally. DEC is for a pool in case they get stuck unless you want LIS/OPO of which case you can start tomorrow - but ask yourself why nobody else wants them.

DEC is happening and it is happening now. Not sure why you suspect it is a fishing exercise, Thad?

Boeing experience, lots of it, a conversation stopper?

Pin Head, Boeing experience is ok, but you will have to pay for your Airbus rating.

I've been told the terms for the LIS and OPO bases have been slightly improved. To what extent is that true?
Been invited for interviews for the opo base and want to have all facts.

LIS and OPO Bases are (and will continue to be for the time being) the same since 2013. That Agreement is valid till Jan 2017.

hello everybody, a quick question on the SIM ride for the NTR FOs...Does anybody know anything on how/on what kind of SIM will it be? What are they looking at? I am looking for info online, but unfortunately, nothing pops up that might help...
Any input will be much appreciated.

Dear DEC & FOs , Make hay while the sun shines. With the economic cold wind starting to blow, we know which infustry will splutter first .
Easy n Ryan have frozen recruitment for now . Fully booked. Prob start again when BA confirm positions for courses in Feb/ March.

Good advise!

Guys and girls, please read the contracts very carefully before you want to join and don´t believe any blind promises!

For the new bases (not LGW & BALPA) such as VCE, BCN, OPO, NAP or LIS:

- Expect very long transfer time to go to decent bases!
- NO fixed roster: forget commuting!
- Random only FRV 132 days OFF with no compensation (for Italian contracts this would imply normally a 10% uplift in salary!)
- NO loyality bonus & no pensions in BCN, virtually nothing in OPO & LIS!
- Basic ca. 100t CPT, SO 35t FO 47t basic (plus sector pay). These figure are BEFORE the tax man!
- new EASA regulation, no CAP371, FRMS guidance hardly followed

Unless you are desperate and you can afford it, go ahead. Unfortunately, easyJet has changed a lot!

The winter training for new entrant FOs has just begun/beginning with circa 300 joining. I would imagine more movement early next year.

With a rumoured 300 FOs leaving for BA and circa 120+ promotions to the left, I think there's going to be a need that Oxford and CTC alone can't fill. The 300 to be trained this winter hasn't accounted for that much attrition. The fleet is expanding from 220 to 300 over the next five years as well. As well as another record year for profits. Based on this I can't see an end to DEC and DEFO recruitment for a little while, especially if BA keep poaching the experienced FOs and leaving a large experience gap.

Just my thoughts though.

Offer the bases we want and we we'd be interested. I fly from a UK airport where half the EZ pilots sound foreign, I bet they want to go home too!

Most of us just can't risk leaving present jobs only to be based gawdknowswhere,

Unfortunately the UK regional bases already have long internal waiting lists with plenty of guys waiting patiently for their turn to go home to their base of choice.

All of course except Gatwick which is where 90% of internal promotions to the LHS and all DEC end up going , hence the many different accents you hear on the radio.
