Thank you so much for making yourself available to Cargolux....I already feel a lot more confident that we will make it through these difficult times...:ok:

what a terribly inappropriate answer, honestly I would hope you're not a part of the team yet if you are. What did he do to you?

Roster in advance?
I have a hard working wife who needs some information about my roster well in advance. How´s the planning at Cargolux?
How well in advance do you get to see your off-periods?


final06 8th Feb 2013 13:31

28 day roster published 12 days in advance.
Expect to show a certain degree of flexibility since roster stability cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of the business.
Rosters may change after being published.
Only the 6 consecutive off days are untouchable (or only with your consent).
3 floating off days can be moved.

@ final06,

thank you very much for taking time to answer. :ok:

@ hawkeye red,

I feel so much sorry if you don't like my post, I feel very very sad because of this now, but I am confident I will make it through this difficult moment.
Sincerely. :sad:

Thanks for the very valuable info final06, finally someone posted some acual rosters! (5 days locked in the hotel in Lagos doesn't sound funny)
If you choose the 9+1 days off option are all 9 days fixed or still 3 of them can be changed? Any chance to get 9+9 days back to back?
Any news regarding the new plan? Any hiring ahead? Is salary going to be reduced? thanks.

final06 15th Feb 2013 13:30

3 days could still be changed but not likely if allocated after the 6 untouchable ones.
Just do not answer the phone. Same applies for blank days. ;-)

3 times per year you may ask for 6+6 back to back.

No news yet.
Expect some hiring late 2013 or in 2014.

5 days Lagos is good for meditating, tax declaration, reading books, watching movies, relaxing from the stressful LUX-LOS flight.
Some guys even request this trip. ;)

I am interested in Cargolux as well. Living about 2,5 hrs from LUX. So depending in the roster I think should be doable to drive from home to LUX and back after duty.

I tried to apply via Interpersonal.de but I cannot finish my application because I have to upload my school diploma wich I can't find at the moment. Is it really required to apply?

Currently flying as PIC C17 at the Heavy Airlift Wing based down in Papa, Hungary.

Would Cargolux be interested in a military cargo guy?

Mike, unless you are 744 rated you will be last in a very long line of applicants.........

CLX only for Malpensa?
... found this at http://www.facebook.com/ATTCcom:

" Cargolux Italia is recruiting B747 Crews

CLX Italia launched operations in 2009 operating 7 flights/week from Milan to Dubai, Hong Kong, Osaka, Almaty, São Paulo and Luxembourg with a Boeing 747-400 freighter. "

Do they look only for the italian branch?

CLX Malpensa
they look for Malpensa-Crews, Swiss College passed the test in March, assessment in Germany IBF Dr.Schwan.

pemac 30th Apr 2013 08:03

... are they still recruiting, Berny?



trancada 4th Jun 2013 16:11

Do you have recent news how the recuitment process is going this year?

Can you give an example of a roster?

trancada 19th Jun 2013 16:34

I can't see many replies from CARGOLUX. Nobody has news?:confused:

KDC10 1st Jul 2013 20:52

Is there anyone who could give an update? Is CV expecting to recruit or call the people who are in the holding pool? Maybe end of this year? Or am I to optimistic?

trancada 7th Jul 2013 19:55

pilots perspective of B747-800
See following link:

Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better! A Pilot?s Perspective of the B747-8F

captain.weird 10th Jul 2013 00:22

The recent rumour is that they will start hiring by the end of this year.

KDC10 10th Jul 2013 09:16

Thanks, keep my fingers crossed.

1975 31st Jul 2013 11:57

Rumour is they are doing interviews, any comments?

sled dog 31st Jul 2013 15:52

Local media recently reported that, as pilot union rejected new Collective Work Agreement, to meet cost cutting measures flight crew numbers may have to be reduced.......could be Management waving the big stick though.
