Mutt thanks

I'm sure I know u if ur still in Jeddah, wishing u all the best! Heard Abd is now f.m. of all the narrowbody fleet and Gassoma in charge of MD-11. Not too interested in the MD, but A-320 sounds ok. Hope all is well over there. 56 with no type may sink me but you know how it is. Cheers

alldaysushi..... i wish that they paid me for this sh1t... but to be honest, i'm doing this for those applying and not the company........

Unfortunately I dont have the statistics that you require,,,,,,

Poina, we know each other from the health club..... frankly if you want to come back, why on earth would you come to the A320/21?

Oh No. what's wrong with the A320/1 fleet as I just send in my application. I am not even sure they will look at my application with so many Bus pilot on the market. Current on A320 with 1600 hrs 580 PIC on type rest SIC, Instructor/Checkairman...wish me luck. But if you are seeing some problem with that fleet please let us know. Thanks for all you do.

Aha! Just had enough long haul and find a couple years of bouncing around the sandbox more to my liking. However, after 10-12 days a month in the sahara it may be time for therapy.

Flyhigh,
Because Mutt knows the deal Poina surrendered, one of the best!
He has a choice, otherwise for new hire, listen to Poina.

1: 50 general questions from ATP written / AIM/ Jeppesen.
2: Interview with 4 man panel

3: If successful invited to Jeddah for sim ride and medical..

Strongly suggest that your logbook hours are validated with some kind of stamp to prove that they are real.

Pretty easy actually......

Hi Mutt,

You are a wealth of information.
A few questions.

I was just emailed a request for an interview for June25 - 29, 2009. This couldn't come at a worse time as we are moving that weekend from the US to Europe. Will I offend them if I ask if there are other dates? I am interviewing for the 747 F/O position.

Second is it possible to commute? I will be living in Southern France.

Last, their email said to respond (urgently). When I did I got a response saying that my email did not go through to several addresses (3). Is this normal as I only replied. Should I phone someone?

Thanks in advance.

Metro301..... congratulations

4holer, there are X number of positions as 747 FO's with a lot of people interviewing, if they fill all of the slots then they wont recruit again. But if they dont recruit enough, i would expect them to recruit again next month.

Commuting is certainly possible today, 6 days off in a row with confirmed free ticket (you pay taxes). But with the new crewing system due to be operational in Nov, who knows what will happen. In fact i believe that they took the 6 days off comment out of the recruitment blurb.

The poor guy needs to learn how to empty his mailbox....... if you dont succeed by Sat, i will give you his phone number.

Have a good weekend.

Hey Mutt,

I would like to thank you for all of the information you have been posting it has been a great help.

I have been having the same email problem as 4holer. I have sent around 50 emails and they all get returned from the three address. If you could also give me the phone number of the gentleman I need to talk to it would be great.

If I do get to attend an interview in KSA I would like to buy you a coffee or lunch. have a good one.

Thanx

Mutt,

Looks like I got one through to Mr. Karim, at least it did not come back. Now I just wait I guess.

How persistant should I be for a follow up. I do not want to be overwhelming

Thanks again for your help.

Hi everyone.
I've got the same problem as 4holer, timing couldn't be worse June 25-29th. I'm also moving although within the USA.

I'm current on the MD11 but anticipating being furloughed soon. Most likely July or August time frame.
I sent a message to the Program Administer asking that they relay my message to the Recruitment Team saying that I regret that I cannot make those dates but I would like to be further considered for the position.

If anyone comes up with another way to contact the Recruitment Team please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
Tom
