Quoting RG828 (Thread starter):
Now lets say if I was 58, worked for SQ/EK/QF, had enough seniority to win a bid to fly the A380, and the production delays were enough to go past my retirement date, what would happen to me?
You will be out of a job.

They quite commonly, however may be obligated to pay for that position if your seniority would otherwise hold it.
|Quoting PhilSquares (Reply 4):|
You would most likely receive "by-pass" pay. Depends on the airline.
|Quoting RG828 (Reply 6):|
So that means that even if one had enough seniority to win a bid, he would get to get pay equivalent to the aircraft, though he would'nt fly it?
|Quoting RG828 (Reply 8):|
Just a silly question: did you crave new aircaft types (disregarding pay) when they got introduced in your airline? Are 'experienced' pilots more interested new aircraft they can fly, or the higher pay they provide?

But ths was common for aircraft such as the 727/737-200 or the classic aircraft, now that there is automation in planes I suspect most people pass the upgrade process easily.
