Has anyone done the new online tests?

Can someone share a little bit of lifestyle at Jet2 on the 737 fleet like how many days Off per month; flight hours; standby dutys a month...

The salary at ppjn is gross or net?

Thanks in advance

Net??? You wish, that's gross.

Lifestyle - 737 line pilots are fairly quiet in the winter months but there are some exceptions, and in the summer expect to work hard. Days off per month is 10-12. Standby duties per month depend on the month in question, in the winter quite a lot, in the summer much fewer, 1 or 2 ish.

Fewer stanby duties in the summer? Surely that’s when you need the cover - for when things start going wrong like ATC delays and so on. Without stanby’s how does the company recover the service?

ScouseGeordie - Aircrew are expensive assets so you can never have enough standby cover. These days Airlines in general have more standby's than "the good old days" because of the EU Comp rules. The best way to manage it however is give crews a big wad of cash to fly on their days off (which is cheaper than subchartering an aircraft)
Switched on Airlines like Thomson worked out many many years ago that a Pilot who sells his day off can cover morning, afternoon and night flights whereas if not you need 3 crew on standby then a few more to cover every "what if" scenario that the Airlines Commercial and Ops folk will come up with. #justsaying if Phil Ward is reading this...

And it is common to have nights outside base?

I mean; How many layovers they make a month nornally? Or it is allways round trip?


Slarberg 13th Jun 2018 13:46

At any base no nights outside base? Even Pmi?

Johnny [email protected] Pants 13th Jun 2018 14:04

The only night stops that have just started are 3 sector days out of STN where they might stop in PMI.

In the winter there are ad hoc charters that sometimes involve nights away.

Other than that, there are no planned nightstops.

How much is the net home intake?

I know there are different factors; hours; flight more than 1600nm; wich base; but more or less.... How much?

And how many days off a month? 10/12?

Thanks

Agree, you might want to delete that comment as they monitor this forum quite alot. I've found jet2 to be nothing but professional, infact very professional, they are up there with the best of them.

Slarberg 4th Jul 2018 02:57

Anyone got any information from Jet2 recruitment people?

Stjuk 11th Feb 2019 08:57

Anyone able to answer a few questions about PMI base 8-4 roster? First of all is it 8 months on, 4 off, or, 8 busy, 4 quiet?

Also,
Is basic pay payed all 12 month?
What are rosters like?
Take home pay for Captain?
General happiness in the company and in the base?

Thanks
