Hey All.. we're in the middle of a severely delayed bathroom remodel. Long story short, I noticed the tile touching the bathtub looks a bit slanted.

On my 24" level placed in the middle, I'm getting a full bubble. Using a smaller level in the corner, its not that bad. While taking these photos I notice the uneven tile job as well.

1. Is this a full rip/remove and replace?
2. Is the tub installed correctly/level?
3. Is the pitch in the correct direction? aka towards the wall away from the room

Attached are some photos.

the tub is not installed correctly. It should/must be level in all directions.
When tiling, the normal process is for the tile contractor to use level sticks all around the surround, one single tile up. Then, once the entire wall is laid and stable, the bottom row is fitted in.

That is severely out of level. If I installed that, any of my clients would be justified in making me tear it out and reinstall.

Not to be too picky, but the tile looks like it was installed by the same person who installed the tub.
