How long did it take for you to receive the contract?
I got the adobe contract 7 days after receiving the verbal contract phone call.

It sounds like someone got a Sydney only based ground school?

So far I have entirely SYD based starting OCT (8 weeks) where someone has part training in AUH (for 2 weeks) and rest in SYD starting NOV.

do you apply for visa before gs starts or they tell you to apply after you sign contract?

Be aware that for those who get Abu Dhabi its only part training meaning some training will be at your base where you are responsible for your accommodation.

They lastly asked me to attend a reach test back in June which I could do with one arm but not both. A couple of days later I was told I was unsuccessful. I had applied for domestic cabin crew.

It was one arm for me without being asked to do with both arms. There is no feedback shared from them of why candidates being unsuccessful. This forum is international focused hence maybe other criteria's are in place for being hired. You can try again and apply and since you internal maybe you have and advantage and can find out.

Thanks for your reply. So were you asked to go back to do another reach test? I think I saw some people mention that.

I completed my first aid and RSA course. Submitted my swim test certificate. Reference checks and medical clearances done and an online teams meeting comprehension test. My manager was even told of a ground school start date for me. My last hurdle was the reach test. When I went to do it I was told I needed to reach 212 cms with both arms at the same time. I had been practicing one arm only at home which I could do. Couldnít reach both arms at once. Because of this I was unsuccessful.

that is really disappointing, especially how far in the process you had gotten. can i ask how long the progress had taken you until the unsuccessful from application? and how tall you are as well?

I only just reached the 212cm on my assessment day and I am 154cm

I was devastated. The process was about 4 months for me. Iím 157-158 cms. Did you have to do two arms at once or only one?

Weights to lift

Hello everyone,

I am waiting on an AD day and reading through this thread I have seen references to the weights required to lift at Bodycare. I have seen 26kg, 36kg and even 50kg!

Just wondering if anyone can provide feedback on their Bodycare experience- just would like to be prepared for the weights test!!!!!!

Also, I saw that 212cm is the reach test height at the AD day- both arms or one?

Thanks all.

I am very sorry. I am actually speechless.. Not sure how I missed this quote of yours. I dont know the process of internal applicants but the outcome of yours has a mental impact. Please speak up to someone internally

Hello all.
New to the forum but used to be a F/A long time ago. Waiting on an AD.
I tried to post a question yesterday but may have not done it properly.
I have seen in various threads that at Bodycare medical check, people are asked to lift weights ranging from 26kg, 36kg and even 50kg. The randomness of the weights being asked to lift makes it hard to prepare!!
Any experiences appreciated.
For those who are finding the wait difficult, hang in there. It was the same back in my day too.
TIA
