Primera Air A320neo

Hi, is anyone else joining Primera Air A320neo operation January 8th OCC at LGW

I believe this is the first A320 Course. I have absolutely no info about the Course, no location in LGW, not sure how many days the Course lasts, which hotel to be used, which Sim's, in short nothing.

Anyone else out there on this Course please, and can fill in the blanks ?

(I am A320 T/R, DEC, TRI, 23,000 flight hours, 2,000 NAT crossings)

Thanks in advance, feel free to PM me.

Why would someone with such a good profile join such a shabby outfit?

Maybe he didn't have enough NAT crossings for a different company.

Maybe he was made unemployed by some shabby venture capitalists and is trying to keep a roof over his families head?

Do you think they be interested in someone who’s Airbus rating was expired but has over 10,000 hours PIC on Airbus or are they only taking current Airbus guys?

Well said bro! I couldn't agree more.

Too many armchair analysts and trolls lurking on this website.

Terrible roster.

Those figures are pre-tax I presume?

I am advised we will be operating a 'W' pattern.

ex STN-EWR night stop.

EWR-BHX n/s

BHX-BOS n/s

BOS -STN (total 6 days on duty, expect 7 days off)

Basic pay depends on experience/Command hours

Hope that helps
