How constructive… when the poster has literally stated they’re not interested in opinions on the airline

The fact is, your peers in literally every other airline will laugh at you due to what your airline make you wear. Have some pride/respect in yourself. Read into that what you will.

The clown like uniform has since been improved from what I hear. This after some pilots revolted against it.

Technically The Flying Stools first sentence was. advice. His/ her second sentence was a fact albeit based upon an opinion but nevertheless a fact unless it was a lie but technically not an opinion.
Do you seriously expect only facts from a rumour network just because you demand them?

I have their collective bargaining agreement from when they started. Back then it was 400.000ISK per month for F/O. That comes to 2800 euros/mo at current exchange rates.

Yikes

Regardless the T&C-s and weak ISK one should definitely budget in the initial costs of moving to Iceland: have a look at the rental market (triple what you find as most landlords will want 2 months deposit plus first month of rent in advance). Also it won't hurt to budget in a second hand car: places to rent around KEF are scarce, majority of avail accommodation are in the Reykjavik area which is about 45-60 mins drive to KEF. bland.is is a good place to start

I got this form my friend that has the latest contract.

Latest terms for PLAY:

Basic
Senior CPT - 960.372kr
CPT - 800.310kr
Senior FO - 533.540kr
FO - 426.832kr
Cadet - 320.124kr

Driving allowance
75.000kr

Above 60hrs/80hrs cadet is 1.25% of basic pr. block hour.

Per diems
CPT - 185 USD per 24h
CPT - 150 EUR per 24h
FO - 150 USD per 24h
FO - 100 EUR per 24h

Below are assumed numbers from my friends experience.
Busy summer month above 90hrs would pay a CPT around 900.000kr/6.420 EUR NET and FO around 650.000kr/4.640 EUR NET with per diems included
Easy winter month below 60hrs would pay CPT around 750.000kr/5.350 EUR NET and FO 500.000kr/3.570 EUR NET.

Factor in cost of living in Iceland, renting, car and petrol etc. Iceland has one of the highest cost of living in the world as well as no commuting offered.

Those numbers are definitely at least 15-20% below what WOW was paying (more if no yearly scales - scale 7-8-9 capt was grossing close to 2mil average back in the day). Also not to mention the weak krona atm. This job is for established locals w accomodation and wheels and not for commuting expats.

Thanks a lot for the detailed info - do you know what the criteria are for each FO role?

A cadaver slightly above ambient temperature should do the trick.

I can only present to my colleagues this picture, which says it all -


In addition, the pay is terrible. I get that people need a job and you do what you have to do when needs must etc. However, looking every day of your working life like you are on the way to 'pilot night' at the gay bar, does not really do it for most people. If you are desperate beyond words, then Play Airlines is fine. If you have any choice whatsoever, then surely this must be near the bottom of the list.

Can you imagine an HGV or train driver putting up with this….? No? Neither can I. This job ( I’m really struggling to call it a career or a profession anymore) has gone down the drain.

In London Deliveroo uniforms are in demand because you can atleast use it to steal people’s watches while you drive a moped on L plates, maybe with this one you can do a dance act in Leicester Square to the kids queuing up outside the Lego store.
