Jet2 back to 100% salary

Announced yesterday all UK based Jet2 pilots will be back to 100% pre covid salary from Dec 1st.👏

All 100 or so pilots made redundant have been contacted to establish their availability for 2022

Two statements above are facts.

Rumor time: recruitment to begin as soon as all covid delayed internal upgrades have been processed, most likely for both Airbus and Boeing as 3 x A321 scheduled to arrive in Q1 2023. Internal Airbus type rating courses allegedly to begin summer 2022.

Good news finally 👍

No mention on the corporate website yet, assuming this is true, yes it is good news and hopefully a sign of recovery.
Anybody got a copy of the announcement they can post?

100% pay is a fact as of 1/12. I'm not posting company communications but I've read it with my own eyes.

Fantastic news given what's going on, and during Winter when the programme is slow at the best of times. Well done Jet 2 Management

There are choices galore for pilots next year. NOT doing this will be the MORE expensive option.

Question mark still over overseas bases due to the complexities of a non-EU company operating from the EU with EU employees.

Edited original post

I apologise for the confusion in my original post, I've edited it now. What I meant by the 50% was that the expectation was that not all would still be available or want to come back, not that there wouldn't be positions available for 50%. However from the messages I've gotten it seems the vast majority are still available or interested in coming back.

737 guys/gals were getting rostered 100+ hour months in Sept/Oct so every indication I can see there will be jobs for everyone so hopefully all will get a start date ASAP and to be fair to Jet2 if they said they will offer everyone a job back before externals they will do that 👍

Is it just pilots or all Jet2 staff?

Pilots were the only group whose salaries had been hit so significantly, most other groups had returned to 100% (or very close to it) for a considerable period before pilots pay was put back to normal (not happened yet, from 1st December).
Management pilots were treated differently throughout the entire scenario and never took the big reductions that all other pilots were given.
so, yes, it’s good news but it should never have been like this to start with!

Unfortunately there is still a group of people who have been on up to 75% pay cuts for over 18 months and still have no prospect of returning to a normal salary.

Not quite correct as the office management staff also took a big hit (too keep their colleague on furlough pay topped up), and only returned to normal recently.
In fairness management pilots worked throughout the lockdown, operating multiple engineering flights and charter to keep the wheels turning. #oneteam

pilots were up on 70% pay, management pilots on 80% pay (I believe office staff too?). Pilots stayed on 70% when managers went up to 90%. Some pilot managers were then offered very beneficial share bonus options too. Not all managers were particularly busy during all of lockdown, in fact many PBMs were furloughed more than some of the pilots in their bases. A small group of FOs continued to work, most training captains continued to work along with fleet technical pilots who were very busy - none of these pilots were treated any differently to the vast majority sat at home, or indeed topping up their income with a second job.

the pay cuts have been difficult for everyone but the pilots were given a bigger percentage pay cut than those earning less and those earning more !

So basically everyone took a financial hit, to get the company through the biggest crisis aviation has had, to avoid any further redundancies.

Yet your more concerned that a manager took a 10% less hit, because they are actually a manager and perform more activities then regular line pilot.

Well at least your back to 100% now 👍 oh 4 months earlier than expected.

There's no pleasing some people is there?

And, unless it changed, of the pilot group, it was only captains who were on 70%. FOs and SFOs took less of a hit.

I’ve laid out facts, plain and simple, some of the previous posts were inaccurate or misleading. Tell me something I’ve said which isn’t true ?

Oh, it did indeed change…… that graduated formula, that I think you’re quoting, was altered from 1st Aug ‘20.
All (non-managment) pilots were then put on a blanket 70%.
