A couple of Skippers left recently for RHS DHL
UK, with an anticipated upgrade as soon as six months. Could be a potentially good move if you want to be EMA based.

There have been/will be a small number of quick upgrades but I wouldn’t plan on it - plenty of existing talent too. Anyone joining now will be at the bottom of a rapidly growing DoJ list. Pay broadly similar to J2 I’d guess but not knowing all the details quite hard to compare. More FDP probably because trips are longer and fewer.

DHK is now a medium/long haul airline and the days of multiple short night sectors round Europe have gone. 767 is West to USA, East to BAH, BKK, HKG

A few people over here seem lost and need directions to a DHL thread.

This forum is pretty quiet. I personally welcome any discussion. Check out some of the American forums and you will see pilots discussing and comparing different contracts, the exact opposite of here. In the UK finding terms and conditions of operators is pretty hard.

I welcome discussion, in it's proper place so it doesn't spam specific threads.

So we should embrace the anarchy of other forums and just discuss everything, everywhere? Let's just have 1 big group messageboard whilst we're at it.

It's very easy to find terms and conditions if you know where to look, use a search function, or just ask someone.

Check out some of the American forums
No thanks.

Very unlikely any DECs will be recruited, let alone NTR.

Is that your opinion, or is that based on facts?

It’s pretty clear that something in Jet2’s plan has changed. They opened recruitment two and a half months ago, since then most people have heard absolutely nothing (with the exception of those with training qualifications). In the interim, several other airlines have opened recruitment and are progressing with interviews, I wonder how many of those people also had applications in with Jet2 and will now end up elsewhere?

Has there been a delay with Airbus deliveries, stalling the need for Airbus experience?

Not saying youíre wrong but they are still advertising for DEC & NTR. Surely they would at least take the ads down if that was the case?!

Probably unlikely for the Airbus given they're a new operator and will likely want to bring in experience.

But I have been told directly by friends on the inside, that they prefer the right person over the type rating.

That being said I've not heard anything, was previously rated on both 737 & 757 but my ratings have expired

agreed. I suspect a revision on their required numbers or caution with the industry forecasts.

I have seen the news in UK and it doesnít look great.

But even in June we all knew that a big inflation rise was coming. Can things have changed that much since then? And why leave the ads up to this day?

What's the chance for a non-UK DEC (with Airbus experience) to get hired? I know that fluent english is (obviously) a must, but other than that, do they tend to prefer locals?

I believe you need the right to live and work in the UK. So that means UK or Irish passport, or visa/residency.

Requirement for initial Airbus transfer is previous Airbus experience for FOs and previous Airbus training experience for Captains, this is a significant change I would expect any Airbus DEC will require the same. 757 pilots will have internal priority for Airbus transfers once the retirements kick in, again this is a new but expected development.
Did they say anything about which bases Airbus will be going to?
