Corsair is about to fire 160 to 200 of its team work mainly cabin crew and pilots. The airline will dispose of its sole B737-300 and a B747-300.
Sad day for me and my collegues who will be out of the airline very soon

What's the reason of such a decision? I thought Corsair was in a good shape...

is Corsair dropping any flights of recent? 160 to 200 is quite a chunk out of their operations, isn't it?

Sorry to hear that. I also lost my job last winter because of the downturn after 9/11 (My job was depending partly on BA-projects). Luckily I found an even better paid job soon after. Wish you the same!

109 cabin crew, 17 pilots and 44 ground staff will be fired. Since yesterday to today 11h30pm unions call for a stike action.
I will try to have an interview with Swiss as the airline is looking for more than 100 cabin crew.

Which 743 will be disposed of?

It is said that the SKY is due to leave the fleet. It seem strange cause the SP cost a lot to fly and should have been dispose of. The 107 cabin crew had been given permanent contract in June after 3 years in the airline with an average of 6 to 8 month contracts each year. More than 200 non permanent cabin crew have been working as well for more then two year to a few month.

Isn´t F-GSKY the 743 that was just delivered to Corsair recently?

F-GSKY? Is this a new one, as I never saw that one... all the 743's I know are F-GSEA, F-GSEX, F-GSUN and F-HJAC . From the747-200's F-GLNA left the fleet earlier this year.

However rumour had it that the days of the SP F-GTOM are now also very limited...

Wishing all the best to you guys and girls at Corsair, good luck for those of you applying at other carriers!

Cheers,

Tom

I just read where Corsair has announced thaty they will discontinue their Paris to Tahiti flights soon. Didn't give a date, however.

Sad to hear they will stop service to Tahiti - still, I imagine Air Tahiti Nui and Air France will be pleased to increase their market share.

Just for everyone's interest, I got this little tidbit from the Preussag website:
"The intention in the long term is [for the 6 TUI airlines] to only operate with three to four different aircraft models. Corsair’s heterogeneous 747 fleet in particular is to be standardised. But, TUI Airline Management want to keep the Jumbo Jet."

Finally, does anyone know when (if) Corsair will begin painting their aircraft in the 'Tui' colour scheme?
