According to an Israeli financial journal, 6H offered its pilots a job at VN.
The airline has stopped its service to JFK, and apparently this is their creative idea of relocation instead of lay-offs... All pilots have received the offers with job contracts from VN.
How bizarre is that??  wideeyed

Not to bizarre.

Israir is a charter airline and crew leasing to other carriers is something part of the business they can offer. As example recently I know a European airline that had an overage of crews and sent a bunch to Saudi Arabia on a long term contract.

Working for VN for a few months is probably better then being unemployed I would think.

that explains why Israirs website for its JFK flight schedule wasn't working.  laughing

I could understand allowing excess crews to work for another airline , but why would Saudi Arabia be interested in an airline's older crew members

Well there are a bunch of upstarts in Saudi Arabia looking for crews, while this European airline had an excess of staff particularly over the winter months.

Sounds like a good business deal all the way around. 1+1=2

Yes, but here we don't speak about just a few months, but the pilots were given long-term contracts. I don't know, it seems strange to me. the airline knows it's not gonna need those pilots again - no plans to reinstate the JFK route, and they are definitely not expanding now.
anyway I didn't know you can "lease" your pilots...  Wink

So is Israir going to finish soon?
why is the pull out of JFK so sudden?

Hmmm...Israeli pilots working in Saudi Arabia. Right. Great idea. Has to be one of the most crass postings I've seen on a.net for quite some time.

Just as TG, 6H claims that despite high loads, the fuel price (which in the meantime is back to $100...) and expenses make the route unprofitable. not sure how long they're going to stay in the game if that's the case, what with most of their business charter-based.
