Hi !
I'm stuck abroad waiting for the beginning of my line training.
The line training will be supplied, but loads of uncetrainties for the future emplyment.

There's no much to do even deciding to do another job, at least for now.
So I'm doing some online tuitions to high school guys, and I'm trying to work on an App development.
But for now I can barely pay my bills ...
I have to say my family is supporting me for the moment !

Furloughed as if, dont know exactly my status

Central Europe .

Hard to make ends meet.
Was supposed to start in Long Haul operator this year, Cargo OPS, but they went bust just before Corona hitted EU. Not much luck here either.

Not sure.

I was about to start a rating (contract already signed, and resigned from previous employer) then 10 days before my move, I was emailed saying it was not happening. Probably a month, possibly 2, and I will need to look at selling my car and other belongings for food and rent money!

Unfortunately you are not the only one. We have had some leave us to start at two big flag carriers and they have found themselves in your exact position. At least they will remain in the pipeline and hopefully they will get back to flying when this mess is over.

Jups those exactly. A pity. I had a good feeling when I got there for assessment. I really wanted to work there. Chief pilots were really nice as well.

(Only) 3 weeks unpaid leave...so far. Think it might get a bit worse soon though. No flights on the May roster.
