"I was told they exercised some of their purchase rights...beyond those that are firm...anyone know? "

We were told 117 firm orders at the Miami Roadshow last week

At a certain point of this thread Posters were speaking of the isolation of Mohammed Bin Zayed City. The local government seems to have major plans for teh area even if they will be commissioned in 10 years or everyone moved to a "cheaper" location. Here is one of the plans: The National Newspaper.

What is the situation regarding schooling?

I have a ten year old son and would appreciate some information regarding the availability and quality of schools in the area.


Thanx

Somebody mentioned something about sharing hotel rooms???????! Does Etihad force you to share your hotel room on a layover? This must be a joke!

Laker, it's not a joke, but it must mentioned as well, that the total time in the hotel is about 1 hour 50 minutes and it is call time again. This room sharing applies to cabin crew, unless you in favor of the co-pilot! Maximum time in the hotel on this one, is less than 3 hours. It's a split duty flight to Delhi, India. A lot of the time, some of the crew visit family and friends in Delhi. Some of the crew prefer to remain on board the aircraft, watching movies, resting for longer than traveling to the hotel. It either all go to the hotel, or all stay on board. If you're running late, the crew prefer to remain on board.

JetJock. Review your FTL's and the OMA. You can not legally complete a split duty day with less than 3 hours rest in the hotel. Time spent travelling back and forth and your 30 minutes post flight and 1 hr preflight can't count.
DEL must be 4 hrs 30 minutes minimum block to block plus travel time to the hotel to give you 30 minutes rest. Don't accept any less.

Toubob, you are indeed correct, reality might be within minutes of 3 hours, and it is 1:15 sign on at out of base station.

requirements

Guys,

a little off topic but I recently applied for the B777 FO position and got an email saying I wasn't shortlisted. "feel free to apply for other opportunties".

I do meet thier min requirments (2200 CRJ time, 6500 total)

Is it worth applying for A320 FO. Is a type rating required for Etihad.


Anyone cares to reply.

Thank you.

Rumours are that the DEC recruitment will slow down/stop, or at least that what was said at the recent staff roadshows!
You will probably only get F/O consideration, if that suits you then contact them

Dear noflare, we are and we will be accepting DECs on 320 and 340. A320 upgrades have been suspended indefinitely with only DECs to fill the slots. We might see a few A330 upgrades Q1 2009 subject to availability of A340 DECs on the market. The only rumor is all Captains will be qualified to fly from the right seat.

Good afternoon,

applied this morning as an FO 777 and just now got an email back that I am not shortlisted because my qualifications do not match...
I got 4800TT with 4300 on B737NG and TRI Rating. Does anybody know what kind of qualification is needed to be shortlisted?

Greetings

How much wide body time do you have? Reading between the lines, possibly nil. The B737 time counts towards your total time, but right now, you probably classed as non type rated, which would mean you don't fit the immediate requirements.

Just hold out for a while is all I can suggest. I think F/O's have more priority for now.

John60 is that your statement or are you quoting someone?

Dear Stratosphere, I wish it was just my statement but it's not. I don't like it either but this is how it is.
