What are the conditions for new entrants? I seem to remember they were pretty poor for the first couple of years at least.

It seems to be that around 4000 net and every 2 years you climb 1 level. Is mainly for the 330/350 and they are looking for ATPL pilots I think.

cheers

Is very close to 4000 first year. You join in level 9 directly

Because in real legacies, longhaul FOs are closer to 10000 a month...

4000 is low especially for a flag carrier and long haul.
for sure is not so uncommon get between 7000/8000 net a month.

it is not a dream is a matter of responsibility and requirements to comply.

A long haul FO at Air France gets at least 8000 a month. Right now you can get on the 330 after just 1 year in the company, or the 777 after 3 years.
Even Ryanair pays their Spanish FOs more than what Iberia is giving to theirs on the 350. What does it tell you?
It's because of people thinking like you that the conditions and benefits are not like what they used to be in the 80s, pretty ironic given your username...

also it depends how many years you fly as FO. Every 2 years your salary improve, anyway agree with you that is not a salary for long haul flag career.
Even Air Europa is paying 5000 net in 787 .
that is the aviation we have in Spain.
regarding Ryanair paying their FOs more, not agree, you make the same but the different is that they kill you flying 4 sectors 25 min turnaround on 737.

I agree it can be exhausting. But long haul flights, jetlag and sleepless nights are quite tiring as well. It's just not the same type of fatigue but not better in my opinion

Our new joiners (non type rated) are on mid 40s (euros) before the extras such as sector pay. Bit more if they are typed. They get by in Ireland which is one of the most heavily taxed countries in Europe. As a long haul FO in Iberia I would assume you can live in the back arse of just about anywhere in continental Europe subject to their on call rules and 4k would go a long way. Its certainly a hell of a lot better than any TP operator would pay you and you won't be on it for long out of your 20-30 year career. You join a legacy for the career prospects, fleet, command, seniority agreements, pension, union recognition, CV, staff travel etc. Go LCC if you want to earn money straight off the bat but it will quickly plateau and you will then be staring across the ramp at the legacies wondering what could have been as you will be in a financial position where you cannot "afford" to downsize back to year 1 at a legacy. Have met so many people that wish they would have left a LCC after 18 months but never did and now can't shift to somewhere where they can move their careers along.

Second year FO pay on widebody in the USA is around $175/hr. You will be paid about 1000hr/yr, get another 16% in your pension plan account and about 10% (depends on carrier) in profit sharing. You will pay about 35% tax totsl on your taxable income (pension is before tax). comes out to about €13,000.= per month after tax.

And that's exactly what I said, people like you lowering the conditions....putting a 350 and a turboprop in the same balance...

This is absolutely right, and in my case true (looking across the ramp...)

Mate, I suspect you are just starting out. Listen to those of us who’ve been flying for 20 years. It’s a good deal all things considered.
Not that you have a choice to make, but just saying.
Enough said, I’m out.

12 years in the industry and 7000h, from turboprops to jets, never paid for a type rating, I think I have a pretty good idea of what I'm talking about. 3500 to 4000 euros flying a widebody is a disgrace, period.
