It will begin after Winter Peak, so I am assuming it begins after Jan 15 2024.

I think in Europe it is primarily Wizz that is affected as most other neo operators went for the LEAP engines instead of PW.

For example, Spirit in the US is one of the most affected operators.

Some aircraft are already grounded, the rest of the affected aircraft will be in a few weeks. And I think that the number we have is still only a preliminary figure. So, unless you're a captain, there won't be any big recruitment drive until they start making their plans for 2025.

All companies with PW engines will be affected, big time.

Nine of the NEOs are already marked as being parked in Bydgoszcz, Poland so it's already started.

What’s the wizz contract like ?
Another low cost airline has clauses that allow you to be moved when they feel like or laid off whenever they feel like it , is Wizz any better ?

Nope, but eventually they’ll sack the FOPH as well to make it less dramatic.

Hello guys ! I have already read all the previous posts. Does anyone have any relevant information from inside? I passed the interview in September, but since then I have been waiting without any updates. Does anyone have any advice or information on what I can expect ? Experienced - Type Rated F/O.

All slowing down due to the engines issues.
I see no recruitment until spring next year, except for DECs or for a few experienced FOs (depends on how many FOs will have left the ship by march or so).
So far quiet a number are off to BA EZ LH AF.
Cadets will be swimming in the pool for long.

FOs at some bases are being offered unpaid leaves. No shortage is expected.

First indications of redundancies coming for cabin crews in some bases. Not a great sign, given the precedents.
