Hi! I've applied with the 2500 jet (A320) and according to my status I've been shortlisted. Now lets see for how long I'll be waiting for the call...

Take care!

DEFO A380

On the 24th of November someone posted on this thread that the requirement to be selected directly into the A380 is 3000 hours on Airbus (fly-by-wire).

Anyone know if EK try to keep people with boeing backgrounds on the 777 fleet and people with airbus backgrounds on the airbus fleets?

EY to EK

Can anyone confirm or deny if EK are interviewing FOs from EY?

Also, typically how long after being 'shortlisted' can one expect an invite for interview?

Thanks.

DEFO 380 start date not confirmed yet so interviewing for that might not have started yet, it is going to happen. A boeing pilot that scores well on the interview would be considered for the 380/330, a high score puts you at the top and than it can ve what ever course needs to be filled first.Funny how only a few months ago everyone one was saying delay until they offer you 777 .

Word on the street is 3000hrs of which 1500hrs are FBW Bus required for DEFO 380. 1st course is planned for Apr..ish. Hold pool is emptied to all bar 60 I believe. Some of those will be invited back to re-interview.

2500 hrs on a minibus only. A few weeks ago, I got a call for phone interview. After few questions, the recruiter said we will call you in feb or mar. Then my application status was changed from "Under review" to "shortlisted". I hope to be interviewed asap.......
