There will be 5/4 for all. 5500 a month as a CAPTAIN, and some here think that's a good salary? No wonder this profession is in its present state!

Where did all this begin you ask? Reagan & Thatcher. The seeds of the 80's " free market revolution" are now bearing their fruit...

Agree with Semmern and Dirk . Crap money . Go to EZ . Or if based in Spain Eurowings ...but to offer a Captain what they are offering is an insult.. However I blame the Agency they have obviously lowballed for the business.. with commissions paid to agencies not sure why these Airlines use them and just pay a decent salary instead. Although in all fairness they are not all bad. PARC used to be ok in the old days but no longer.. in fact I wouldnt work for them.

Same reason as Norwegian uses agency workers for permanent positions?? No union to fight, no employer responsibilities, if they become too expensive - give them back to the agency etc. etc. etc.

The money you make isn't necessarily worse than mainline SAS. But you do miss out on many of the benefits, such as the social benefits of living in a country with high employer social security charges. You have no health insurance (other than at work), no pension contributions, no loss of license insurance, no idea about ID travel but I'd say unlikely? Sick pay I am not sure about either. Covered by the law of England perhaps? or Ireland? or wherever country you're hired in.

If you live in UK then UK contract with social security there. If you live anywhere else you'll get Irish contract with social security through Ireland. In other words, this should give you the right to state pensions in these two countries. Not a lot but it's at least something.

Possible additional tax and social security payments having to be made in your home country depending on where you live? As many already pointed out, pay is very low and I can't see many people jumping on this train.

I'm hopping they will struggle to find captains willing to work for the pittance they're offering, especially since the grass is extremely much greener at EZ, BA or even LH these days, but there will probably be a rush of New FOs with fresh ratings wanting to join "SAS."

At the selection they say to everyone that they will be based in MALAGA. Reality is that Malaga is not going to be open until April next year. By that time, only 20/30 pilots will have a slot there, everybody else, regardless of what they say, will be stuck in UK

matt283 10th Jul 2017 10:42

To be honest for me it looks again like the same mess when norwegian opened first base in Spain - Malaga couple of years ago...

Perser_dk 11th Jul 2017 20:29

Anyone that has heard anything after the interview sessions? Offered any starting dates?

ManaAdaSystem 19th Jul 2017 09:34

Beware, this new company will be used as a tool to break the unions in mainline SAS. You will not just fly to and from your base, but you will also operate mainline routes. More so as this company gets bigger.
Do you want to be a part of this?

matt283 20th Jul 2017 10:09

This is exactly the same what norwegian was doing at the beginning when opened a base in Malaga:ugh:

HippoDK 24th Jul 2017 14:43

Before we all get to exited how well do you think an Irish AOC will operate in the U.K. post brexit? I would think twice before signing up on a LHR base. I can assure you that no thought has been given in that direction. SAS has NEVER had a successful company outside core SAS - not meaning that core is much better....

EU bases (there will be more than Malaga) will operate without those issues off course and I'm sure applicants will be plentiful - they can always hire those Easy didn't want.

MD80rookie 1st Aug 2017 21:40

Does anyone know of anobody who have applied with an honest intention of joining and be based LHR?

BluSdUp 2nd Aug 2017 09:08

I read somewhere that SAS union was on the way to UK to talk with BALPA with regards to new ops.
Could get interesting.

semmern 2nd Aug 2017 10:52

Latest rumours say 6-month delay due to recruitment issues. Let's hope they are true.

Luibar 2nd Aug 2017 14:50

Maybe they realize how weak the T&C are... :p

linmar 2nd Aug 2017 19:46

I've heard the same. Don't quit to start with SAS in LHR.

Don't expect the conditions to improve though. Upper management has promised the board and CEO that pilots in the UK are to be a lot cheaper than in Scandinavia despite the current crap conditions on offer up in the North. Wouldn't be very impressive to come running back tails between legs having to admit pilots won't join a company offering substandard terms and conditions.

EFISchap 2nd Aug 2017 20:50

Are they looking for Non Type Rated Captains of First Officers yet?

Andrew7 11th Aug 2017 09:53

So what is the latest? hear they cannot find pilots......... . That's what you get when you try and cut costs. Strange that they always go for the crews salaries first

semmern 11th Aug 2017 10:32

Out of interest, where did you hear that, if you didn't read it here? "Proper" SAS pilots want to know :) PM me the answer if you don't want it public.
