OK, so no massive relocation, thank goodness.
LEJ used to be fine for convenient apartment rental.

Any captains been called forward yet?

Haven't heard anything myself along with a'lot of very experienced and current 777 captains.
Those of you in the know, were the interviews conducted/scheduled for FO's ?

From those interviews I am aware of have been mainly FOs.

There is much more of a requirement for FOs based off internal promotions from within. This is a long process though, 777s will arrive over a time period so DECs are a little less urgent at the moment

767 Order

Sorry for the thread highjack but didn’t think it justified a new one. I heard a rumour 4 or 5 767s also due to join the EMA base soon? Any truth to this and any info on when this might happen please? Would there be recruitment or just straight swap out of 75 for 76? Can you commute to this job? Thanks in advance. All the best to you all. Job sounds great

767. hi Jim. Just a couple at the moment, first arriving soon. Because the bulk of the 757s are going to a new airline with OE reg, there will be crew to spare for the 767. Also recruiting and training ongoing from the existing massive pile of CVs.

Thanks. Will keep a look out. Is commuting realistic? Realise not much scheduled into EMA so would be difficult enough but trying to get a job without upping sticks from rural Ireland 🤦🏼‍♂️😩

Commuting as in flying in straight to work, then no. Having somewhere for decent rest prior to LH flying and for sbys, then possibly. TBH courses are pretty well populated for the foreseeable future. Feel free to send in a CV but we have a large pile of those already and I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

Current employees have started courses. I don’t believe new joiners have yet been given contracts. That said, there’s no running commentary on recruitment and my interest in the 777 is to watch from afar! Hobnob may know more. The comment above referred to the 767 courses.

Thanks for the info

Was just curious as I know alot of people that applied for the 777. No one has heard a peep
From what Hobnob was kind enough to tell me before, seems its going to be a while

Courses planned for end of year onwards.

Recruit for both 777 and 767 position.

Sorry when I said no one, I meant no one that I know of.

Happy for those lucky people then

Strange everyone I know is current and highly experienced (10yrs plus flying the 777 including the Freighter).

Guess you guys really have the pick of the litter at the moment

What is the latest on the 777F arrival? I have read somewhere that the first will be arriving in March, is this confirmded? Also read that they are rumored to be taking between 8-10 777Fs, again, any confirmation too this?

All comments appreciated.

Various options and rumours at the moment.

first 777 due in January. A good number to come next year if the plans remain the same as they were last week.

more expansion for 767 fleet too. Need to establish proper figures from the company first.

But recruitment for both will be ongoing for the timebeing. And possibly longer! Don’t give up hope.

Do you think it's feasible that they might hire externally for 767 captains?

Richard. No plans for that right now, but feel free to apply TR or NTR for a RHS position.

I wouldn’t see it as “likely” or “imminent” at the moment. It’s a big “if” but if there is any 767 expansion coming, hopefully internal upgrades and displaced DHA 767 get priority for LHS/RHS positions. That would leave DHA short of crew though, which they can’t afford to be either. No idea on internal upgrades though.

So in short, anything is possible.
