Good to hear the migration to the 76 is under way, but with the inevitable loss of part time, flexi , 9-5 and the impact on the domestics and residency.
It served so many for a long time and made it all do-able. I miss it.

Out of interest, are the allowances and hotels down route reasonable, and are they paid directly into the salary account? Thanks

Ah I see, so allowances down route aren't in addition to FDP? The £3.50(ish)/hr FDP essentially forms the allowance during layovers?

Deltahotel, do you reckon DHL UK will be recruiting non type rated again at all? Looks like an ideal company to work for, and cargo seems to be the way forward for job security.

Hi all,

I have an interview later this month and would like to get a bit of an insight into life on the 767.
  • How much control do you get over your roster? Is there any type of bidding system and if so does this work well?
  • How many hours a year are you guys flying?
  • It seems it will not be possible to commute, I'll take it is a 90 minute standby callout?
  • Are things left quite liberally up to the crew on the line? In my current employer we have very little interference from the company and are left to our own devices!
  • What is the management culture like?
  • What is the standard of hotels down route, and do you have more than minimum rest off?
Any responses to these questions is greatly appreciated!

It is a 777 thread, but I’ll deal with it.

1. None
2. Prob 5-600. As important is days off - 162 inc leave
3. Yes
4. I imagine that’s how all airlines should work - do your job, don’t cock up, be left alone
5. Fine
6. Good. Rest usually 24hrs+ because you’re waiting for the next ac to come through.
