Geez,now that's what I'd call a long post,are you sure you found a job after you left,it makes me wonder how you find all the spare time for such extended replies,but I've got to hand it you, your english is improving drasticly,which means you've been watching more T.V., which takes us back to square one,are you out of a job?

Well pal, its seems that our little debate is going no where, so I have decided that since I have made my point of view clear enough for any one who cares to read through this post from beginning to end,any other effort to clarify what you did and what I think of it is in vain,hence, its over ond out from my end of the line,you wanna transmit, you transmit blind.

Wink chance to point to out ...

@MAX

Well, you know, as I do, all readers of these posts understand fully what it means not to mention any items or figures of the previous corresponding post.

It's a pity that you couldn't moderate your emotions in your last post. I had a wish, but it did not come true.

i would like to add something to this on going argument..... im a jazeera airways f/o and have been for the past year, previously i was in kuwait airways, a government owned airline and am a kuwaiti national so job security guaranteed and pretty much command guaranteed!!
However i decided to leave for a chance for a faster upgrade and u say SurvivedJZR that the company is full of liars and it was hell on earth....
For my experience in jazeera has been pleasant..... For the reason of it not being fantastic is the fact that flying 99 hours a month is something im not used to at the start but i stuck in there and now enjoying the fruits of my labour as my command upgrade is next year..... march to be exact instead of waiting another 8 years in kuwait airways.
So u sir are accusing the company of being lairs and using u as a scapegoat (which btw i heard of ur story in the beirut.... VERY SHALLOW) maybe they spiced it up but never the less it was very low.
The company has been keeping their promises with all the crew as much as they can, remember they put the airlines considerations first then u!!!!
i recommend any f/os to join jazeera it is hard work like working for any low cost carriers but the rewards are fruitful even leaving a government secured jobs!!!

Application in AA is done online. If they consider you they will call you. But if you want to call them it's up to you. Dial +971 6 5088824 and look for Annie Menezes.

This info is free of charge. Goodluck!

Sorry cameltoe2006 my friend, us being rivals made me smile widely when I read that the info was free of charge an' all, a rumor people tend to believe when it comes to low cost airlines, but both you and I know that there is no such thing as free when it comes to low cost, any way, I just wanted to pull your leg, oh, lets make it finger, it costs less

Now regarding Jazeera, you can call a Mr. Sajith on +965-4333304 ext 215 sat thru thrs from 0900 to 1600 LT, we're GMT+3.

As far as I see you have more than enough hours and my estimate for time to command now is running between 2.5 to 3.5 years, maybe a little more but probably less.But please dont take my estimates for granted,after all, they are estimates not promises.

Best of luck, and this info is not for free, if you join Jazeera, I'm expecting a cup of coffee

I did a few years with KU. What you have to remember when you work in the ME is that nothing is as it seems, even when it is written on paper. I was shocked to find the `trader mentality’ with management, and so it`s all about getting the best deal. In this case, if you have been denied something, then the management guy feels he`s got the better deal. Things that we take for granted in the western world, will be deliberately left out, just because you did not asked for it. You then will have to start a long process of appeals and perhaps achieve somewhat close to your target. With KU most of their promise was honored. After a couple of years subsequent contract appeared to be getting more and more restrictive, ie I was loosing out on allowances and benefits. One by one over the years it was being cut when cost of living was going up. Finally when housing allowance was slashed by a 1/3, I decided to pack in. I was in no mood for any more b/s, packed my bags one fine day and took a hike!

Vowed never to set foot ever again in the land of total chaos, total madness, total………you name it and you`ll find it!!!

Thumbs up

villian, greetings from Q8!
Life with Jazeera has been fun but takes a while to get used to the country. That said, i'm Irish and living here with my wifes and kids (one born here) for the past 2 years and have no plans on leaving (but i am allowed leave if i want!) drop me a line if you are interested in more info.

Very interesting and informative post. Thanks

That being said I am considering of becoming an airline pilot, as flying is something that I recently became very passionate about. I am Kuwaiti and been living abroad for some time and would like to get some information and input about how to become a pilot in Q8, its very hard to find any information about how to become a pilot in the Middle East/Kuwait.

Please excuse my ignorance as I know very little about airline pilots, but I do have some knowledge about flying/navigation through some simulators that I spent a lot of time on.

- Does JZR offer training to become a pilot or do I have to take training else where then join JZR?

- Knowing its a new airline, compared to KU as a pilot which is better to start off with?

Any information/links is greatly appreciated and sorry for derailing this thread.
