Great company to work for, they look after you so much
Unsociable hours for cabin crew however that is the nature of the job
I worked at Thomsonfly full-time (More than 3 years)
Good pay if you work hard
Lots of different pay scales amongst employees
I have been working at Thomsonfly as a contractor (More than a year)
As cabin crew you are not over worked, you earn a good basic wage, along with additional hourly pay and commission. You work with amazing people and go to amazing places. All accommodation, food and drinks are paid for while visiting other countries.
Work is only temporary fixed term contracts, so you start I'm March and finish in November. No opportunity to progress to cabin managers as you are promoted through seniority, not merit
Advice to Management
Offer more permanent contracts on merit, not seniority. The young, fresh staff are leaving for permanent jobs and you're getting left with complacent, old staff

Fly approximately 500 hrs/year, significantly less than easyJet/BA. Airline large enough to have plenty of opportunities for different types of flying yet small enough so you're not just a number.
Regional bases plus good pay and excellent benefits sets Thomsonfly apart from many other airlines.
Company is currently trimming it's fleet after merging with First Choice Airways, meaning career progression is slower than expected (i.e. promotion to Capt), however benefits such as Final Salary pension scheme and years spent as First Officer counting towards Capt's annual salary increments negate this somewhat.
Company is rather disorganised and seems prone to making a complete hash of IT and administrative matters. Holiday and flight concessions not bad, but difficult to access because crappy staff services dept.
Advice to Management
Don't forget the employees and don't forget this is a seniority based airline with collective representation.
I worked at Thomsonfly as a contractor
Great support from management
Potential to earn bonus on each flight
No fulltime opportunities as the airline operates on a seasonal basis.
