UK:
CP:
117,033 + sector pay (37 per sector, goes up or down based on length of flight) + loyalty bonus (5% 2-4 years at easyJet, 10% 5-9 years, 15% 10+ years)
SFO (2501+ factored hours): 70,957 + sector pay (22 per sector). No loyalty pay for RHS.
FO: (1251+ factored hours): 57,802 + sector (same as SFO).

ES (not sure if changed since 2021)
8 months on, 4 months off
CP:
75,860 eur + sector + holiday pay + benefits + loyalty pay. Roughly 100k first year all in.
SFO: 40,951 + everything as above. Roughly 55k all in.
FO: 30,210 + above. Roughly 40k all in

The atmosphere is largely fine, vast majority of crew are a pleasure to fly with. We have lost a fair few bodies recently to legacy airlines and the sand pit, as a result everyone is feeling the strain of summer and working high hours, combined with the constant disruption it can be quite fatiguing. If you take a full time base the autumn and winter is generally very pleasant with enough hours to keep you busy but not so much so that you can't recover from the summer onslaught. Training is first class.

An new CLA has been agreed in Spain about a year ago, with decent payrise and other improvements over what you mentioned.
9 months on/3 months off now possible on a volunteer basis, and also 5/4 roster pattern within the months on, at certain conditions.

What about seasonal contract in Spain. Is it slightly more than full time contract so you can compensate your loss during these 3 months of none flying? Because only offer for FOs now for Spain is seasonal contract like you mentioned 9 months on 3 months off.

Are we talking about net amounts are before tax? What is the SFO experience criteria for for Spanish bases? Can you still register to queue to change the base to another country after you start?

These are gross amounts. The new contract is at least 10% improved, salary wise. The basic should be around 125k euro for a full time spanish Captain, and 68k-ish for a SFO, to be pro-rated depending on the part time contract (8/4 or 9/3). Plus sector payments, loyalty pay and other bonuses. Taxation depends on a lot of things, many variables and tax considerations in Portugal and Spain.
Of course you can change base, if you are keen to move you can expect max 1 year on a seasonal base, and move somewhere else, depending on your license and rights to work in another country.
SFO starts at 2500 factorized hours, but if you join as FO (with let's say 2300 hours) you need at least 24 month in the company to move to the SFO payscale.

In Portugal I believe they are still negotiating the new CLA, but my educated guess is that terms and conditions will not be hugely different from Spain.
In Portugal only FAO is a seasonal base, with OPO and LIS being full time, while in Spain there is a much higher % of seasonal bases (only a few planes in BCN are full time, with AGP, PMI and ALC being 100% seasonal).

Legacy carrier? Most people have been leaving mainly to other easyJet bases within the network in which the T&Cs are much better.
If you are interested in a 5/4 pattern you need to pay for it with 8% basic.

Any whispers of the current hour requirements being dropped? It seems everyone hiring is currently just trying to poach from Ryan or Wizz at the moment. :/

The vast majority of new entrants are and will be cadets from CAE, in the last few years only small % have been experienced FOs. But who knows, things might change. They never seem to get the crewing numbers right anyway.

I believe your experience will be within the EU bases. In the UK a large number of FOs have been leaving for BA/ Virgin/ Emirates this year. Certainly a higher amount than usual.

Air France alone has taken 200 Easy pilots since last year. Then include the likes of BA, EK,...and the numbers are not insignificant.

The attrition is pretty much only on the right seat, and only to legacy carriers offering a long haul career. Not exactly a fair comparison. I cannot think of another short haul operator in europe I would rather work for, all things considered.

In Spain they pay 14k to Cpts and 7k for FOs at the end of the inactivity period for those on 8on/4off, and 12k/6k for those on 9on/3off.
They are negotiating something similar for Portugal on the new cla, but my understanding is that there the annual salary is already split on 14 months also for those on seasonal contracts, unlike Spain.

I am fairly close to command upgrade at my current company. What are the requirements for upgrade at easyJet? I understand there is no seniority list.
