Overall, how is working for Swift? A good opportunity for a regional FO looking to move on from a dying regional?
Crews are based in Ostrava, and Brno Czech Republic. Brno is the International Best Western (very nice), and Ostrava hotel is the Mercure (also very nice). Both are paid for by the company

That sounds awesome. Double pay plus bonus (and I assume perdiem?) to live in the CR in a company paid hotel. Sign me up. I've never been to that section of Europe but I hear it is nice. I'm also half Polish so I'd fit right in once I figure out the language lol. What routes do they fly from those cities??

Is the info on the profile correct? You cold-send an email to one or all of those individuals listed??

Is picking up flying on a scheduled day off paid at 150%? Just wondering if making extra money over guarantee is possible.

It's not exactly double pay. We have a 120hr guarantee over here vs. 60 back stateside. That being said, I haven't flown less than 96 hrs in a month over here. Always right on the ragged edge of timing out.

Ok. What routes do you do in Europe? How do you like it all?

Central EU, some Northern Africa and some Greece. Very few Málaga and I hear of some UK but not anymore. The Europe flying is done at the end of September uNtil next year so I wouldn't come here for that. Have to tell you it's pretty great, they US operation runs good. With the normal things you would expect from a small ACMI airline, the biggest issue at least down in Miami seems to be crew scheduling and FAR 117. Overall not a bad place to be, wish FO pay was increased by $20/hr...

Ok. I understand it's seasonal. The rest of the year how much do you fly?

Yeah personally not interested in messing around in Europe. Would be happy with MIA turns and going home every night. Doesn't seem like a bad deal at all. Just can't afford a pay cut waiting to upgrade is my biggest issue. Hopefully you guys can get your pay raised for FO (and CA) if they really want to keep expanding and attract good pilots with some good experience.
