Stay away

Pros

Due to extremely high turnover upgrades usually happen fairly close to pilots reaching the minimum hourly requirements.

Cons

No job guarantee, no financial security, extremely low pay, old and rapidly ageing fleet, no seniority, permanent discrimination, extremely low morale, very toxic work environment.

Advice to management

No use for any advice. They know exactly what they are doing and will not change the situation until they will be forced to do so by legal requirements (which will not happen anytime soon due to the special status of Iceland)

Advice to future employees

Simply stay away, this is absolutely no career choice for the long term!

However cool it may seem flying a 747 - DON'T fall into this trap!

Pros

the opportunity to get heavy jet experience

Cons

Bogus self-employment, typically combined with management by fear of losing your job. No stable income, no stable rosters, no loyalty towards/among personnel. Second rank treatment by the Icelandic Union Pilots. Toxic and disrespectful

Advice to management

Treat your contractor-pilots with respect / dignity and stop exploiting them just because you think/know you can. Treat them equal to the union pilots.

Advice to future employees

Stay away.

Nice workplace

Pros

Flexible work patterns, future fleet development look positive with the B777 introduction, good hotel standard, short upgrade time, good training, a lot of interesting destinations, great colleagues.

Cons

Unstable rosters, lack of fixed routes, no travel benefits.

Advice to management

Increase pay, offer more fixed roster patterns, ensure equality in work distribution.

Advice to future employees

It's an ACMI operator so the schedule is unstable by nature, don't think it's like flying for a national carrier, flexibility is the name of the game and as long as you realise that, this is a nice place to work. Sign up for a fixed roster pattern if offered, it's the best way to get stability in work and income.
