Non-Frontline staffing model
« on: October 30, 2013, 05:15:24 PM »
So as I have been adding flight I have been comparing the staff growth before and after each flight, and the numbers seem extremely high to me. I agree with Pilots and flight attendants, as that is tied to growth in ASMs and aircraft, and makes sense (6 sets of crews for each fully utilized aircraft). TechOps and customer service growth is faster than it should be, but it is acceptable.

what I find growing much faster are the other groups, like route strategies or corp comm. my 7 daily departures don't need a 13 network planners or 23 flight ops ppl. anyone else notice the over staffing?

It's a very socialist game in this respect... 2 people required for every job... kinda like every government  ::)

My Tristar 500 requires 27 pilots (9 sets)  :o

The bigger the plane category, the more sets of pilots they need.

I feel that staffing should be based upon length of routes due to pilot rest requirements and not on the size of the aircraft (except number of pilots/crew). However, to keep it simple, I think the current setup is fine.

Much better if we can take average utilization per A/C to determine the number of staff needed. Obviously domestic carriers in China and Japan (many airports with curfew) don't need as many staff as their counterparts in the USA

Why not determine the number of staff required on a "seats for sale" model? The number of seats you offer on the market determines the number of staff required.

I agree with this :) And connect the turn-around time with the length of the route too.
