    I worked at Thomsonfly for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay was good and uniform was provided for free

    Cons

    Awful fixed term contracts, couldn’t care about you individually as a staff member was just a number to them. Little room for progression or movement as the company is full of dinosaurs who couldn’t care about there jobs but on old legacy contracts. Even after 4 years of fixed term contract no sign of year round job. The issue with fixed term contracts every you are seen as a new employer, so even after 4 years I got...

    Advice to Management

    Review your contracts as you lose so many amazing crew year on year to different airlines with better contracts

    I have been working at Thomsonfly for more than a year

    Pros

    As cabin crew you are not over worked, you earn a good basic wage, along with additional hourly pay and commission. You work with amazing people and go to amazing places. All accommodation, food and drinks are paid for while visiting other countries.

    Cons

    Work is only temporary fixed term contracts, so you start I'm March and finish in November. No opportunity to progress to cabin managers as you are promoted through seniority, not merit

    Advice to Management

    Offer more permanent contracts on merit, not seniority. The young, fresh staff are leaving for permanent jobs and you're getting left with complacent, old staff

    "The Rolls Royce of charter airlines, but getting a bit rusty here and there and needs a good polish."

    I have been working at Thomsonfly

    Pros

    Fly approximately 500 hrs/year, significantly less than easyJet/BA. Airline large enough to have plenty of opportunities for different types of flying yet small enough so you're not just a number. Regional bases plus good pay and excellent benefits sets Thomsonfly apart from many other airlines.

    Cons

    Company is currently trimming it's fleet after merging with First Choice Airways, meaning career progression is slower than expected (i.e. promotion to Capt), however benefits such as Final Salary pension scheme and years spent as First Officer counting towards Capt's annual salary increments negate this somewhat. Company is rather disorganised and seems prone to making a complete hash of IT and administrative matters....

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the employees and don't forget this is a seniority based airline with collective representation.
