IMHO, in Europe, all LoCo pilots and aircraft maintenance requirements are subject to the same legal and quality controls as legacy carriers. In particular, in the UK, Easyjet and Ryanair conform to all the safety requirements as everyone else. LoCost in ticket fares and soft product services maybe, but I have as much confidence in them as in our legacy carrier, and with all their shorthaul work, I am sure that their pilots have more experience and expertise in certain areas of the flight, given the proportion of cruise to take offs and landings in any given day’s working hours.
