Are you waiting for a class date for FLL base or elsewhere. I heard all courses this year were being conducted in LGW, well as far as the FLL pilots are concerned, not sure about other bases.

I presume they are still interviewing for 787 FO and CA.

My mate told me it is up to Norwegian what pilots are selected for training and when, OSM has no input apparently. This of course applies to people who have been offered jobs.

To be honest I would not know about your Boeing theory there, I cant comment on that but seems like a very strange approach if true. Its not going to be any easier for a 737 pilot to get typed over a A320, CRJ or Embraer 190 pilot.

Not sure they would do that but guess its a possibility!

From what I’ve been told by plenty that have done it, the similarities between the 73 and 78 stop at the name Boeing. The level of automation in the 320 is more akin to the 787 but it’s their train to play with.

" IAG International Airlines Group has confirmed it intends to open talks with Norwegian (DY, Oslo Gardermoen) over a possible takeover.

In a disclosure, the European carrier conglomerate described Norwegian as an "attractive investment". It added that its recent acquisition of a 4.61% stake in the Scandinavian low-cost carrier is intended to establish a position from which to initiate discussions with Norwegian, including the possibility of a full offer.

"IAG confirms that no such discussions have taken place to date, that it has taken no decision to make an offer at this time and that there is no certainty that any such decision will be made," it added.

Norwegian operates across several AOCs which, aside from its Norway-based operations, include Norwegian UK, Norwegian Air International (Ireland), and Norwegian Air Argentina. For its part, IAG operates LEVEL, Iberia, and Vueling Airlines in Spain, British Airways in the United Kingdom, and Aer Lingus in Ireland. "

1. Good atmosphere
2. About 2 years depend on performance and if you upset anyone
3. Random rostering, not always easy. Main base LGW, expect standbys there.
4. Don’t know

What is the take home pay for an FO? BCN or LGW?
Do you have to pay the bond in cash?
Is it commutable, currently based in the Northern UK but looking to move to PMI.
Cheers

Depends on where you live. If you live abroad the UK and there's a DTA in place they will transfer you the salary as gross salary. You will have to pay taxes on your own behalf. It all depends on where you live.
The bond can be either a bank guarantee where you pay around 1-2% interest or you can pay in cash. However you won't receive any interest on your money. I'm considering a move to PMI as well. I expect around 4300-5000€ net.

During the last bidding period most of the people got the base they applied for. I guess getting FCO base shouldn't be a big problem

So if the bond is through a bank guarantee you need to negociate the amount with your own bank like a loan??. I though you sign a document with the company and that it was enough.
I don’t know if my bank is going to Agree this kind of “loan”...
let see...

It's called a promissory note and means the amount payable depends upon set conditions. Usually, you will need some form of asset (house) or the money in the account before they will provide one.

Word is they do not have a pilot shortage. They apparently have enough pilots in their "pool" to staff another four months worth of OCCs. But hiring is slowing down and the upgrade for this late summer is cancelled. Six 787s are being leased out, and three deliveries have been deferred. So basically things are now at a standstill with Norwegian long haul.
