An Irish AOC is not be all and end all of operators dreams, I’m reasonably confident that if BjÝrn really did have crystal testies he would not go down that path again, the IAA required NAI went back to paper flight deck for 8 months despite NAS/NAN having been paperless for 4 years, same with NAI 737 long haul, crayons and plotting charts are the order of the day, at least it stops you getting bored, seems the IAA adult team can’t read down loaded files on servers, but can read 1000’s of scraps of paper and Oceanic clearances.

i have heard from several normally reliable sources that it costs Norwegian more to run things through NAI than NAS/NAN the Labour certainly isn’t cheap and reverting to a Swedish AOC that will allow NUK/NAS/NAI pilots to fly across AOC is on the cards, remember that NAI is not Norwegian Air Ireland, but Norwegian Air International

So were does a Swedish AOC come in.
Is that to get overfly rights over Russia, as have been the problem with a Norwegian AOC.
Why another AOC, or maybe you are wrong?

Swedish AOC is apparently in the pipeline particularly for the Siberian overflight rights and to get away from the hassle of the IAA. US Pilots have been sat on their butts on full pay for well over a year now as the IAA wonít grant authority for FAA licensed Pilots to fly EI reg aircraft. In EasyJet, Pilots can fly G and OE reg in th same day without any problems.

SAS Ireland still flying and doesn't even look like they cancel flights due to lack of pilots.

I wonder if there are any improvements on the contracts or still nothing?

How would you know? SAS is cancelling lots of flights at the moment and the reason for that is manline is short of pilots, Cityjet is short, SAIL not sure. I guess they dispose resources to minimize the damage. You do know right that mainline is flying out of Malaga? That's an indication to me that SAIL is not flying what it was supposed to fly and SAS is cancelling in the Nordics to cover up.

I based my comment on looking at SAS Ireland 6 a/c on flight radar today and all of them seems to fly.

ei-sia, ei-sib and ei-sie did first wave departures from agp.

Says little about the overall crewing situation though.

I believe there are a couple of Neos without engines parked up in Hamburg destined for SAIL. Possibly the engine issues cover up the crewing issues. Who knows. SAS hasn't managed the crew shortage very well. And the public speech in Sweden that is what due to crew calling sick en mass was ridiculous and no less manipulative than O'Learys weak attempt at covering up their crewing issue last year.

New contracts out.

Pension increased to 5%. (Have to, by UK law. But there is a maximum amount you can save)

£1000/£1500 yearly allowance towards the cost of LOL. FO/CPT

No increase in pay. And in return they can adjust to a random roster in order to crew the flights.

And this is supposed to solve their crewing crisis. Stick that up your a**

not suprised at all.
TCs remain the same, crap, and this is why pilots are leaving.
Only youngsters remain, or skippers willing for part time.
SAIL will not go far.
I assume the last 3 aircrafts will be sent directly to Scandiland.
I think this experiment was a failure like the previous ones attempted by SAS mainline.

When will they be delivered? Is the crew situation really that bad, what about recruitment?
Today I see all aircrafts are flying..
Are more people about to leave?

EI-SIF only flying OSL-LHR-OSL with one hour delay due to FLIGHT DECK CREW SHORTAGE. And TOS was cancelled this morning to move an mainline A/C to AMS due to SAIL shortage according to my friend.

Iíve over 5000 hours A340/330 P1 but they not interested.
Low time 30 somethingís only .
I guess these pilots have mortgages and kids to feed, so they are unlikely to rebel against the low Tís n Cís

Not quite true.

Large age range in both seats, with a very high Union membership. BALPA, IPA and SELPA. Probably about 90% are refusing to work days off until there's a drastic improvement. So many are refusing easy money now in the hope of more rewards later.

CAE are a bunch of misers, and probably don't want to fork out money for a CCQ onto A320

Recruitment

Itís an impressive amount of recruitment ads and mails they have had for the positions in SAIL, not to mention all the screening days...

And for what, 40 positions? Wonder what all that have cost...

From CAE Parc Aviation Facebook:

"Great day at CAE London Gatwick! Thank you to all our fantastic candidates who attended, and the very helpful CAE staff.

Next week we are in Manchester!

SAS Ireland our partner airline continue to grow and develop their London Heathrow base!

This is a perfect opportunity for Airbus Fleet Captains and A320 First Officers to enjoy a stable roster and be in command of the newest fleet of A320neo aircraft."

Continue to grow? Develop their LHR base? Stable Roster?

I have checked SAIL traffic regularity in our (SAS) system - it's quite an impressing amount of flights cancelled due to lack of flight deck crew, or delayed flight due to flight deck crew shortage.
