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.

Human Resource Contact number or email

Hello guys,

is there anyone that could help me with my issue?

I applied on the website for a pilot role in DHL, after few days I received an email from HR Debbie Moore asking me to complete a FORM and upload to my attachments…

the problem is that I didn’t understand where I have to upload this FORM, as on the website I cannot get into the application anymore and there is not “attachments” part in my profile.

is there anyone available to share an email from Uk pilot recruitment? Debbie Moore emails should be the best.

Many thanks guys

Manu84, good morning.

Your profile says location Rome - possibly to save you pointless work , check you have a UK licence and right to live/work in the UK and are prepared to provide an address within 90 mins of EMA?

Does anyone have a rough idea of progression through the salary scale (for an FO) as ppjn shows quite a difference between base and top salary. Thanks.

Try 20 years if you aspire to hit the top of the FO scale. I've heard command upgrades have been less than a year recently.

Thanks for the responses.

Understand a fair bit of standby, much like my current employer during winter. Am within the 90 minute commuting distance so no issue here but would obviously prefer to commute as little as possible so, do rosters generally see you out on the network for a few days in a row? I.e. commute to airport, fly around for a few days/the block, then go home for a few days off?

Good morning.

First suggestion is some searching because a lot of answers will already exist on this site in various places - I know because I've provided plenty of them.

More specifically, there is less standby than you think. I'm guessing you're in a more seasonally skewed airline, as I was years ago in JMC where winters were very quiet. DHK works throughout the year. Having been a mainly SH airline with a bit of LH bolted on we are now fundamentally a LH airline with a small rump of SH for which we are not recruiting. Westbound trips about four days, Eastbound are longer possibly up to 12 days followed by days off of varying numbers. There is no set roster pattern so don't apply if you are averse to change. Contractual days off inc leave is 162pa so if you feel you've been shafted by a short break it has to even out in the end.
