You'll do the same amount of work as everyone else except yours will be crammed into an exhausting 9 months. In exchange you'll get essentially 2 winter months off in return for your 25% pay cut. I say 2 winter months instead of 3 because everyone else gets a paid calendar month off once a year, usually in the winter.

They save 25 % of your basic salary and in winter they don't need you. In line with other part time offers I have seen.

You could make a (good) case that you should be restricted to 75 % of 900 block hours in a year, or your work days will be very exhausting and not in line with a healthy family life. But then they'll probably think you get to save the cake and eat it too.

Which is exactly what happens in other (serious) airlines, for example easyJet, with any part time option.

What you’re saying here is not in line with the internal memo we had about it from DR. In that memo he says 75% of the annual allowance is paid. So are you really talking from the horse’s mouth?

Annual allowance stays the same 100% and productivity is 75%

That’s not how I read it. It says successful applicants will receive 75 % of basic pay and allowances over 12 months and flight sector pay during flying months.

Remember,on a full time contract you will have 1 month off, and 10 days leave, so for a full time contract you will work 10.3 months, now this new scheme you’ll work like a dog doing 850hrs in 9 months, lose 25% pay and get a little over 1 month off in return.

Doesn’t seem worth the 30k you sacrifice in wages for 1 month extra off!

As as mentioned before, when ryr release new contracts, it is always in their favour. Do not take it.

You won't work more than 750h during the 9 months so not sure where you get the info from.
You love slamming FR no matter what they do (just checked your posts)

Why take a massive pay cut to work the same hours per month? Ask any RYR CPT in a seasonal base about summer hours. It's 100 a month. Many calendar months (i.e. 31 days) rostered over 110, with frequent phone calls to work days off.
Realistically on these new contracts I suspect one would fly about 850 hours, the same as a full time employee but for less money. Fixed pay and allowances are 75%, the only thing you get properly paid for is the sector pay.

part timers are doing 600hrs a year, and they work way less than 9months! Last few years full timers have had not available due high hours in nov and dec because they have maxed out, and that is after their month off!! So it is very likely you will hit 750+ hours.

At 75% pay, they should cap your hours contractually at 675 (75% of 900hrs). But they wont, they will want to hit you with as close to 900 as possible.

an accountants wet dream.

Definitely it is a great business for Ryanair if you fly almost 900 hs in 9 months with less 30K at the end of the year.

Did someone point the gun at you and forced you to accept the contract? I doubt it,

Instead of moaning why don't you just talk to the person who offered you the contract and express your concerns. You have come here and you basically are talking to a bunch of haters

Because most probably "people" that offer to him this contract will not tell the true and for sure will not be honest. So is moré than logic to ask other*collegues What they think.
Beacuse he wants a second opinion from people working at the company or ex Ryr pilots.
I never would accept such contract because in months you work they aré going to program your roster and push you to the limit. Be sure of that, specially in bases like Malaga, Palma...
Don't let some people of this forum intimidate you, it is a practice well learned from some companies staff, bullying.
Just feel free to ask ✌��

And who told you that they are not honest? Sick of people talking absolute garbage in this place. It's all in black & white, you check the contract, if you don'l like it you don't sign it. Simple as that isn't it?

If they were serious about it being a 75% contract, they would cap your hours contractually at 675hrs and overtime for anything extra.

but they wont, and that is because they want to try and get you as close as possible to 900!
