Okay, so once the pilot arrives to his destination (away from home) where does he stay for the night? Who pays for that? who pays for the transportatin to and from the airport (if staying at a hotel)? Who pays for the meals? thanks!
Quick background, Im a 23 year old First Officer with British Airway here in England.
As you may have guessed by the name I fly the BAe146 & AvroRJ100.
When were on stopover's, we are met by the taxi driver outside the airport entrance who is
paid for by company, he take us (the whole crew) to hotel (either HIlton, SAS Radisson, or Crown Plaza)
which is paid for by company. We get a breakfast and an `allowance` which varies from destination to
destination (ie more in expensive Geneva than say Frankfurt) which can usually buy a meal and a beer or two.
If you get anything put on your room BA have a discounted rate, between 20-35% off the bill.
Then when required the taxi turnes up and takes you to the Airport for another fantastic day at work.
Hope this is of help
