Housing allowance (what's the accomodations like?)

Accomodation is a disappointment but it is for free so one should not really complain. It varies from smallish villas to flats depending on what is available when you require it. The allowance pay out is not enough to get you anything if you have a family, you will definately have to pay out of your pocket. If you are single it will work.

Transport allowance (is there any?)

About 500 aed a month if I am not mistaken

Exhange rate protection (is it that under the increment of 500 AED/700AED month/year - or is this the Bonus?)

No such thing at Etihad

Provident fund (none until now, except for the so called "End of Career Benefit", any news on that one?)

End of Service benefits is only given as that is a National UAE Labor law. The have tried to pass off the "Rent to Buy" where Etihad acts as your mortgage broker to be your provident fund.

Share Options (are they in the stock market?)

Not sure, never have been offered this.

Is there any health care package at all or any reimbursement?

You are provided with a very weak Health insurance package for you and your family.

Plenty of for now.. 'Khalifa B' if you want a Villa, Company Provided, Delma Street, 3 or 4 bedroom apts, quite nice, company provided, Khalifa Street, company provided, Hamdan Street is coming up very soon, 3 and 4 bedrooms, full facilites and duplex, company provided.. Now, you can easily make out you are a Prince from wherever you're from and look for a villa at 5 bedroom with Maids room, drivers room pool, tennis etc for 300K per year, choice is your's.. WHATS PROVIDED NOW is Extremely Acceptable and ADEQUATE!



Transport allowance (is there any?)

About 500 aed a month if I am not mistaken


Maybe you have a different contract to me??? About 500 per month!! NO WAY DUDE! Nothing is most correct! ZERO DIHRAM! In the Old days the transport allowance was incorporated in the Daily Allowance, now there's zilch!


Exhange rate protection (is it that under the increment of 500 AED/700AED month/year - or is this the Bonus?)

No such thing at Etihad

Provident fund (none until now, except for the so called "End of Career Benefit", any news on that one?)

Provident is coming and will be a unique package, hang on you'll see.. if not, I'll resign


End of Service benefits is only given as that is a National UAE Labor law. The have tried to pass off the "Rent to Buy" where Etihad acts as your mortgage broker to be your provident fund.

Health Plan is fine and adequate, perhaps limited in the Dental domain, however, I know of a case where a company employee had been covered for an illness where the bill was in excess of 70000 EURO! No probs there..

That's all folks.. at least i'm honest

Yep looks as though we do have the same package Insh Allah.

I do apologize for my error on the transport allowance.

Snam, here people came with great hope and willing to wait, because partly Etihad own by Abu Dhabi, but so far nothing compare to the next door real player.

You can come over, see and wait. May be its suitable for you. But my advise is you should try somewhere else, where they have everythings in place for you and your family.

Fleet/Route Info Please

Hi All

I'm considering applying and just wondered if one of the current EY Airbus pilots could answer a couple of questions for me.

a) I've noticed that there are seperate postings for A330/40 and A320 FO vacancies. Can I assume that these fleets are operated independently with respect to pilots? Or, do you generally get a mix of A320/330/340 flying?

b) I have a wife and a 1 year old so I want to limit my time away. How many nights do you guys spend away every month? Is the 330 used on short haul routes? Can you bid for just short haul flying on the 330?

Ideally I would prefer to be able to fly a mix of 320/330/340. However, if thats not possible and there is a good mix of long and short haul on the 330/340 then I would prefer that to pure 320 short haul flying.

I would be most grateful if I could get some straight, honest answers to my questions.Im not interested in anyones opinion of whether EY is a good or bad company.

Thanks

Last I heard was that all bus pilots would fly 330 with CCQ to either 340 or 320...Im not sure about flying all 3 types.
The 330/320 option would certainly give you shorter flights but as for more time at home that will depend how the 320 flying is set up.

As for the bidding short 330 flights, I would be suprised if that option is available as guys seem to be working pretty hard....

good Luck

Recruitment Info

Hi guys,

I'm new to this. I'm thinking of applying and wandering if i could get some tips from here. Presently holding a frozen ATPL and rated on the A320 as well, with sufficient hours on type to meet the entry requirement.
Would appreciate if i could gather some info on the recruitment process and also a liltle info on the company.

Thx

What's the story

Hi
What's the story with recruitment at Ethiad.
I applied over a year ago and never heard a word from them. 17000 hrs and thousands in command of the A320.
There can't be that many applicants out there would like to hear from anyone who is actually there.

Main question is is it a good place to work and how are the Pilots treated????

Presently flying here in the US for the past 25 years as Capt.
Ian

Many of the initial training positions were filled by a lot of guys who really should not be training.....a case of your in the company, you are now a training Capt!
Levels of competancy and English language took a back seat!
There are lots of guys across the fleets who are qualified but are not invited to train..

Knowsup is correct in what he says...start planning ahead or you will fall flat on your face...this is a flying club compared to EK!

Just outta curiousity, what was EK like after 4 years?

Did you have all the letters crossed and dotted?
Did you have the infrastructure and intrastructure?

I'm the first to agree about the efficiencies in EK and I long for the day it rolls 100km down the coast to this outfit but lets compare apples with apples or maybe camels with camels or even bad drivers with bad drivers!

Yes, heaps untold work to do here with recruiting and HR etc.

show us the plan!!! apples to apples? skilled drivers are being snatched up by other competing airlines. We are not at a fruit vendor where the supplies keep coming in. Don't care if you are the corner coldstore or a Spinneys. When the stock arrives you have have the systems in place to stock your shelves.
Sort of like GF pefroming one of their great AUH road trips to get back the disgruntled former GF cabin crew from EY. Big hype...going to get them back no one likes EY. They sent a team of their best to do the interviews and 4 people showed up. they picked two. That is lost leadership and digging for oil by speculation. Do not see anyone trying to join them who wants to work for an airline. But EY you do/did have the interest of skilled guys. The Etops fiasco-The haircuts-HR - and a aussie rugby team does not equal success.
As for pilots-they are pounding at your door and the flying club who does not see the urgency habbibi's their buddies in the hope of one day having a coop. I am not a disgruntled pilot who did not get into EY. I have +5000 hours and had the choice of EY or EK. After seeing which circus to join-I joined the one with the better structure and the less leaky tent. They actually know your coming when you arrive. You are put in a hotel for a week and somone in HR actually gives a sh**t about you to make sure you are alright.

My choice but after my own careful deliberations I can will stand by my decision. Make your own. But how long can anyone hang on to "in 4 years what was EK like?" You do not get second chances with the competitors in this region and now India.

Good luck with Rishworth. Go with anybody but them.

At least EY looked after me and the family when we arrived. Mind you, my hair is short so that might help....

Personally the more captains that go the better!! Nothing personal you understand.

Hi. Submitted app in Aug. 5500 hrs non-typed but widebody command A300-B4 and JAR TRE/TRI. Heard nothing yet. What chances FO or DEC? Does the email reminder to HR/quote ref# method help?

Good luck then, but you could also look for Maximus and Midex in Abu Dhabi, with A300s cargo....

Talking about Rishworth, well can they be worse than our HR and/or OPS people here in EY, honestly, to find worse, maybe in PyongYang.....or New Guinea, oops.....

What happened to that EY/EK interview guide/website that was available for down load?

The website doesnt seem to exist anymore.
