As pilots we will still have our back against the wall for a little while, till things will really start to improve from a travel freedom point of view. Considering that only 18 months ago we were all shafted and were losing jobs around the world like it had never happened before, I think we came a long way in such a small amount of time. Airlines are more or less hiring around the world (where there is some kind of travel freedom as of today, i.e. Europe, US) so that's good for the pilot population. They need 1 pilot out of 10 applications as of today and therefore can run the show as much as they want with respect to terms and conditions and hiring requirements. Sooner or later this will change, vaccines will improve in effectiveness over time and new treatments will see the light. Fingers crossed but I believe by 2023 or so covid-19 will be entirely manageable allowing unrestricted travel to resume and hence the market will regain its natural stability, with pilots supply and airlines demand intersecting naturally with improved terms and conditions.

Rumours suggest mandatory vaccination or testing for all crews starting 1 December 2021. Can anyone confirm or deny? If it's true, it has to be the first major EU airline with such a policy.

Only if you're operating domestic flights in France, not applicable at the moment for european. Don't ask me why, I'm neither the one who wrote this, neither the one who voted for it !

I really hope thats the way to go.
We must deal with that for another 2 or 3 years at best. Vaccinations + green pass = airlines jobs

Hi I have a question about bases. If you pass the interview process when do they tell you about base allocation? Is this in the offer letter? At the interview do they say which bases are hiring?

I take it that the guy needed to get back flying, don't blame him one iota. What are they offering him in terms of contract and salary. Is it the zero hours with Warsaw Aviation. I have a few ex colleagues who are interested.
They are just about surviving but are getting mires desperate with winter onset.
