Flight Pay / Per Diem
last update
Capt Still no news concerning per diem unless no meal provided in morrocan hotels since 1st Feb
FO As for above, but take care - they look after the captains a little bit more than the f/o's ie the Captains at least get a room. Sometimes the FO's are forced to sleep in rooms with no bed sheets or towels provided in rented apartments down route that are in worse condition that some of the jails around Morrocco. Worst case the pilots have to sleep on the plane. UPDATE: Still no news concerning per diem unless no meals provided in morrocan hotels since 1st Feb

Bases For Pilots
last update
They say you base is Marrakech and you fly Morocco to Europe. Now they base crews and aircrafts to Casablance to make the Africa flights for RAM. This has caused a lot of problems with Malaria and other infections. First they do not provide any medicine and now they use a vaccine that is very bad for health. All Africa flight by night with min rest (7 hours) turn around. This is causing many problems. If sick there is no medical cover as it is invalid for Africa flights, only for Europe.   13/Aug/08
