There's one more thing that you have to think about...FO's are PF only on category A airports that means not flying 95% of the outbound legs of the 320 network.If you are low houred that's ok but if you have experience and you are willing to keep learning it could be an issue.Fo's cannot start the engines,taxi the aircraft and fly to more interesting airports...I find it insulting but rules are rules.Other than that working environment is excellent really good people to fly and work with everywhere

agreed with Aviator3200..but I hear that the CAT B airport fiasco is about to be dropped. It's a ridiculous rule - you fly with new captains that have never been to certain airports before but, if you've been a million times, you ae "not suitable" to land there...

Assymetric..the 777 upgrades will be coming to a halt but only because no more FO's have the minimum 5500hrs total time / or 18months / or 700hrs on type...It has to change soon, either drop the hours or up the package to attract DEC.

What they told during the roadshow is that airbus guys will continue flying airbus and boeing guys will continue flying boeing when the upgrade come, because of the training double costs it would have to change fleets. The minimums are a little bit different to be upgraded on the narrow (4500TT) or widebody (5500 TT) fleet.
My question is about the time to command. With all these acft's to be delivered, do you really think that the upgrade will be in the next 4 years for a new joiner with experience? Is this time at EY definitely lower than at EK?
For me, this is the key to opt for an expat life.

Appreciate any help from you guys living in the ME, or with friends in this situation.

Rated guys for 777, followed by unrated. Some guys in suits recently so I assume they are taking on for the airbus as well.

Few Mexicans and some Greek Airbus dribbling in. I think these guys were sent down the SZ road from Emirates.
Four sets of 20 joiners since Oct. 16 Airbus guys and 4 777 in each batch.
They will be happy to get an application from you and the recruitment guys are a friendly bunch.
However, it's up to you to decide if EY is in anyway better than joining EK?

Do Etihad have a anti poaching agreement with Qatar, like Emirates do?

Gone now I think. Got a few from Goat air coming over. The EK was a year ban and that's shaky anyway. As the pilots dry up it'll hard for them to get the guys they need whatever they say about there being no shortage.

Family can have a 5 bed townhouse with plunge pool in dusty Al Reef for 160k+ They're not too bad.
Few more places coming online slowly. A lot of companies have found a other dimensional world where holding back properties from coming onto the market will make them billionaires. Yes, you have to stay in Abu Dhabi for your allowance.
You might want to reword that last paragraph?

Sorry for this paragraph...

So the question is: is t true that there is some problems with some paki in the city ?
And for the 320 the roster is not too bad ?

DEC 320

Hi all.....can someone tell me if there is any DEC 320 hiring taking place? I recently observed they removed the job post from the website.
Thanks

If you are single or married your parents get ID 90 unlimited on EY. You also get ten bonus tickets per year to give to anyone you nominate.
