When airlines can’t keep their pilots happy: They’ve been asked to fly for months
It’s the most recent example of a growing trend where airlines are asking their pilots to work for free.
While this is certainly a sign of the times, the problem has been around for a long time.
And it seems that some airlines are starting to realize the problem, too.
The UK airline EasyJet has made the policy known, with its new pilots demanding that they work for the whole year.
This is the airline’s latest example of how the airline is asking its pilots to do more.
For the past few years, the airline has been asking pilots to spend a certain amount of time with its employees, which has seen the number of hours they work fall dramatically.
However, EasyJet’s latest pilot recruitment strategy sees the airline asking pilots that they must complete a certain number of flights per week, and that their primary responsibility is to the airline.
EasyJet’s new pilot recruitment policy was spotted by aviation journalist John Davenport and his colleagues at TechRadar, and the policy has since been put into place.
It’s the latest example from the UK airline of a company demanding its pilots complete a specific amount of flights each week, which is apparently the norm for airlines across the globe.
As Davennet points out, this is a bit of a surprise, given that it’s not really a new phenomenon.
Many airlines have been asking their pilot cadets to complete at least a certain set of flights a week for years, and many have had pilots demand their crews complete atleast a certain total amount of missions over the years.
Airline pilots in the UK have historically been quite happy with their jobs, with some even going as far as demanding their crews work until they reach a certain point in the year.
The airline’s new policy seems to have been a departure from this, however, as it has forced the airline to ask its pilots how much they can expect to work during their current employment.
In addition to this, the company is now asking pilots for a certain level of workload, which they can only be asked to work up to if they are asked to take a week off in their current location.
At this point, the pilots are forced to either accept the change in their employment situation, or leave the airline altogether.
The airline is hoping to attract more pilots by introducing this new policy, but this seems like it will not be an easy task for the company.
Despite EasyJet stating that its new pilot policy is aimed at attracting new pilots, it appears that this is not enough.
The pilot recruitment system is not perfect, with the airline admitting that some pilots have asked for a longer workweek than the normal working week.
If EasyJet is indeed serious about attracting more pilots, the pilot recruitment process needs to improve in the near future.
