3.4 Captain - Former employee
Feb. 09, 2022
Recommended to other Pilots Positive business outlookApproval of management

Pros

Modern fleet, professional colleagues, high standard of performance, worldwide network. Socially the support is optimal in case of family issues.

Cons

Unreliable conditions as NO labour protection, driving force is not fleet as they are a secondary trier below everyone else. continued pressure to 'optimise' at the expense of the pilot community. very punitive culture. sick days officially don't influence your career, however they do. Using Long haul flights and short haul flights mixed to make you fly more hours. they will burn you up as there is no labour protection as stated above.

Advice to management

Be honest and fair to your workforce, not just short term gain as an objective.

Advice to future employees

Take a very good look if this is the job for you, It can be but one needs to keep a watchful eye on your quality of life goals, not just shiny new aircrafts.
