Just wanted to ask your opinions on applying to Emirates as Cabin Crew for a Male over 30? Do i have any chance? What is the maximum age you can apply as it is unheard of anyone being recruited after the age of 35.
Pretty much everyone in Brazil has their photos taken in the same studio in São Paulo, because it's recommended by Fly Right International for being EK standards, and they've said they would use some of the photos as sample in other countries. So if your photo looks like the one on the blog, it will be fine. I just love that studio so much...
Things are looking up ! OD is being held in Melbourne excatly 1 year to the date since I had my last FI . - Dec 11th
So the question I would like to know is , can i submit my application through the website a few weeks before the 12 month period is up because I wont be attending the OD untill excatly 12 months later ..?
Thanks eveyone for answering my previous questions .
@Miss F - if you check through the old forums you will find lots of tips about the OD's and FI .
@Wanderluster - if you have the means and the money to fly to another country for an OD , I say why not ? All you can do is try . I think even if they are holding an OD in a country and looking for a certain nationality , if they like you it wont matter and they will take you .
Wanderluster... may I ask if your priority is to fly for Emirates (this is an Emirates wannabe forum after all!) or just to get a job as cabin crew?
I'm flying for an airline in the Phils and accept salary is not great here... however a mate of mine just got a job with Qatar Airways (after only doing 9 months experience as her first crew job with a local airline here) and I know of several ex Cebu Pac crew now flying for both Etihad and Qatar. I also have colleagues whose wives fly for Thai and Cathay. The point being none of these folk speak the local languages of the countries concerned, so I believe there are opportunities there for you. Also my mate who's about to leave for Qatar, lives in Cebu and Qatar did the entire recruitment event in Cebu, so she didn't have to travel anywhere.
Regarding your other point, if you don't have dual nationality and Emirates are intent on maintaining the required quota, then if they did catch you out applying in another country... then it would be a waste of a lot of money (unless you were have a holiday there also!)
Hello, I have always wanted to apply for the Cabin Crew position with Emirates. However, I'm reluctant to do so considering I had a heart surgery before...a hole in the heart surgery that was done 13 years ago. I did fly with a low cost carrier few years back and passed the medical. Doctor mentioned that I am fit to fly and have no restricions.
Will my application be denied because of my past medical history?
Looking forward to your feedbacks! Thanks in advance!
Hello, I would like to apply for the Cabin Crew position with Emirates only that there are a few things that concern me. does anyone know if face moles are permitted, as i have 2 on my face, and one of them is right above my lip. thanks in advance.
I'm looking for a little bit of hope here. I attended my FI on Sept 30 in Perth with 4 others. All of the other 4 have had some kind of response (2 are AIP and 2 have had the GC) but the status in my portal still says "Under Review". Does anyone know of anyone having waited a long time hearing nothing and still getting the job? I felt like I did quite well in the FI...
I have just got an email from Emirates inviting me to an AD on the 6th November in London. I am going on a ski season until April, so do you think I should attend this AD, or ask them for an AD when I get back? I don't know what to do, as I really want to work for Emirates and don't want this to ruin my chances!
Is it true that Emirates wants people who are mainly silent during group? It seems like people who talk are the ones who get sent home (So I've read). And what about making it through the first round. How do you make it past the first cut,is it really off looks?
Ok i have overstayed my visa in the States by a year. I want to apply for Emirates they have an open day in 2 weeks in NY. I am worried they are going to question my status in the states but I am planning on leaving next month anyway. I am a brit/aussie citizen. Do you really think they will dig deep? I have been travelling around the states for a few months not working at the moment and just thought I would tell them that as it is the truth! What do you think my chances are?
I believe this to be true. I went to an assessment day and after the group discussion i was dismissed. I think I came across as too domineering in the group. I had noticed that there were some loud people doing all the talking and then there were some quiet and timid people. I simply said that we should give an input to allow the quiet girls to speak cause the loud girls wouldnt let them get a word in. I thought this was teamwork - i did a cabin crew course and they had said to do this, apparently not for Emirates!!! The girls who didnt say a word were actually the ones who got in! I have heard they like more submissive type as its the middle east and we all know their stereotype of women!! But there you have it, I witnessed it with my own eyes. I am planning to go to an open day soon and I am going to try and be submissive but still show that I can work part of a team and contribute to the discussion.
The issue will be that when you eventually leave the USA you may well never be allowed back in (due overstay). No airline that flies to the USA needs the grief that you will get every flight on arrival.
Well i am fully aware of this. I know you do not HAVE to fly to the USA as a lot of crew cant not even get a visa to do so. I know of a girl who works for another middle eastern airline that had the same problem as me and she has been flying happily for them for a few years now. I believe she doesnt fly to the USA. But what im asking is if I will have a problem actually applying from the USA? Because if I did get the job I would be working in the middle east and have a visa from Emirates.
