The only specific confirmation is that the invite email says they are recruiting for A380 and 777. It could be the case that there is no plans to schedule courses until summer still.

But for now only for type-rated people, right? A colleague, who seems to know some pilots in EK has told me that invitations for Non typed pilots will start in March, do you know anything?

Thanks guys!

Yes, by type-rated I meant airbus and Boeing ( any from both families)

Just curious, but how do they fly you out to DXB from the US? Standby, or SA biz etc? Is there a US gateway that is preferred over others for lighter loads and such?

Pos Y upgradable to J ( believe thsts PY0J5). Not sure what happens to your wife if they buy Y confirmed. Dont think the files are combined so you may rely on the graciousness of the agent if you were upgraded.

Friend who was shortlisted for DEC and FO earlier this year with 9k hours and currently a widebody captain was told by EK he wasnt competitive . Only thing I can think of is age and that maybe he was military. Thoughts?

Received a personal email from an EK recruiter yesterday saying that FO interviewing would commence shortly, but only for those with 50T+ experience. Everyone else that meets the published requirements would have to be "patient." Could certainly be quite a while in my estimation as there have been 8 months passed since the interviews stopped which left a lot of time for new applicants to apply and build up the selection pool.

Another friend got an email from a SR in HR that said to update his details and to expect a call soon, only to followed shortly by another email saying that after review, they wont be calling him now because they are only accepting current Boeing and Airbus pilots only and will only consider him after exhausting those applicants. I guess that other widebody with 3 engines doesnt qualify as an airplane.

Just curious....the people that have received emails from HR, did they email HR first and then get a response, or did they just get an email out of the blue?

They emailed HR. In these cases they had been in contact earlier this year when they were invited to various PSP that were cancelled.

I was invited to a PSP, then uninvited a week before. Been trying to contact HR but it has been impossible.
I hope they run out of +50T soon.....
Merry Christmas to you all guys.

Thanks for the info....I have 3000 737ng time, still havent received an email from hr apart from the obvious standardised "you have been shortlisted" stuff.

Good to keep each other informed on here anyway. Happy Christmas! (maybe next Christmas will be spent in Dubai?)

McNulty, you put my mind at ease there. I'm similar to yourself (4000 hours 737ng). Applied in may and heard nothing apart from being short listed etc.

Merry Xmas

You might find a slight low down on interviewing until Apr , they seem to run over on budget at the end on the year and go nuts come the new year Apr1/2013.

Does any one knows why?

I sent my application on September and then in November changed from shirt listed to under review. I checked my mail at the beginning of 2013 and now my status changed again from under review back to shorlisted.
Does any one knows what it could be?
Thanks
