flighdeck Greetings.

Post by photon on Fri 13 Apr 2012 - 10:01

Has anyone noticed a difference in flightdeck PA's?

I've noticed on 4 random flights this month some nice PA's from the flightdeck, particularly a nice enthusiastic BA style welcome by the captain, route, weather, delays, etc. And again during the cruise, and a 'thankyou for choosing to fly with ryanair' after landing.

Is this MOL making his pilots more productive? And to reassure the passengers that unlike the cabin crew (no offense) that most of the pilots are indeed british, care for their passengers and speak english well.

I guess this might have something to do with ryanair's fleet reaching it's peak, with no planned orders.

Anyway, it is nice to know that the guys in front are human and actually enjoy what they do despite the stress of their job of turning around a jet in 25 minutes.

I have noticed the same during my last flights taken over the past month or so - More info is passed back to the passengers a move for the better. Wink

Maybe i misunderstood you, but are you trying to say that if the pilot's are British, they are more productive and care their passengers more?
That sounds quite offensive to be honest.. as your statements seems to indicate that British pilots are better than pilots from other nations.

I am a cabin crew myself at Ryanair and all of my colleagues i have worked with, can speak English enough good to ensure safety of the flight, and assist passengers. In relation to pilots, they all are qualified for their job, and they all can speak English well, yes sometimes accent may be a factor, not only for cabin crew but also for pilots, but that doesn't mean they don't care about their passengers.
Also you must not forget that Ryanair is an international company which offers equal possibilities for people from all nations to work along together, which is a lot of fun i must say, to meet the different people with different backgrounds every day Smile

In relation to nationalities, if you mostly fly from UK and back, in 90% that will mean that the aircraft you fly is based at UK, which of course means that there will be more local pilot's than the other ones.
For example i'm based at Milano Bergamo, and 70% of pilots based here are Italian, 20% from eastern Europe and only 10% from native English speaking countries.
Before I moved to Bergamo I was based at Stockholm Skavsta, there we had around 60% Swedish pilot's, 30% from eastern and northern Europe, and only 10% from UK/Ireland Smile
