Btw Some new guys are getting put up in the Pearl again. And people are being let out of company accommodation howver the queue is very long so expect quite some time waiting.

Best of luck and welcome aboard!

Thanks for the insights,

Any information if the 787-9 will have crew rests and make ULR flights?

How do 777 and 787 rosters compare? Still not sure if I should apply with just 1000+ hrs or should wait till I have more to have better chances for the big Boeing where I could fly long range.
