With 10 years to command you would think there are many suitable candidates for the left seat. What’s going on at CV?

Once you're signed and paid up for it the test includes it's own preparation tests and exams.

Im afraid nothing is going to happen in the next three month. Expect some news late 2019. The process is going to take a lots of time. Nobody knows what to expect. Since the process is just starting. But we are extremely short of pilots

That's not an improvement.
It's just the Index which was 794.54 and was increased to 814.40
On the same site where you got that info from it says:
As per Luxembourg law, salaries are adjusted in line with the evolution of the cost of living (Indexation): If the consumer price index increases by 2.5 % during the previous semester, salaries are normally adjusted by the same proportion.

I see them advertising for TR DEC's for at least 4 months now. Obviously they are not getting any one to sign up.

Any particular reason ?

Maybe they realise that they are not welcome.
We have enough first officers who can be upgraded.
I do not understand why a company like Cargolux takes DEC's.
As you might understand it pisses off the first officers who are close to their upgrade...

I applied as DEC for the last 2 years and recently was told they definitely do not employ DEC you have to be FO, be interested to see if anyone knows any DECs that joined the company in last few years?
Besides the usual reason for DECs is that the FOs don't have enough hours for the insurance, it has nothing to do with ability.
