More info on Gatwick would be great as it all seems to be about mixed fleet, can anyone share any info on:

- average Gatwick take home (after tax) pay
-gatwick routes/trip lengths/days off after trips
-aircraft new entrants are trained on

Mikey, you are not too old

Ryan/Natalie, I'm not lgw but to the best of my knowledge
The route network for LGW can be found on the oneworld timetable, just search it on google. Can't help on trip lengths I'm afraid, although I know Bermuda and Barbados were nightstops when mixed fleet covered them for a couple of months.
Gatwick crew are trained on 777 and a320 series I believe
Staff travel varies depending on sector length, it's quite cheap but I'd rather not post figures on a public forum.
You may end up with enough days off, but it will depend on each specific roster and how you bid.

Hi

Take home depends on your routes, your tax situation, and how you decide you run your pension contributions. Sorry, but it is too variable.

New entrants are trained and from day one fly on the B737/B777 and the A319/320.

LH routes:
BGI, UVF, ANU. TPA, LAS, MCO, KIN, MRU, MLE, PUN, BDA, CUN.
SH night stops:
NCE, EDI, GLA, JER.

LH trips range from 3-6 days. Days off after a trip vary between 2-3 depending on trip length.

Steve

More info. on the LGW pages.

Okay, so you get £2.80 per hour for every hour that you are away from your base (LHR) although as of November this will be rising to £3 per hour. So for a SIN/SYD you would get £3 x 24 x 9 because it is a 9 day trip, however flight pay is a month in arrears. HOST is simply a facility that let's you draw out currency down route, it then comes off your salary at the end of the month, hope this clears things up for you.

Does anyone know what the references consist on? I live in Spain and I have worked in the UK, Spain and Gibraltar. When do they ask for them and what do they actually check? Thanks

There is currently no increase to flight pay from November, only if the Union accepts the latest pay offer which as far as I am aware they haven't.
