So what could you expect as an FO with 6000 hrs TT, of which 3500+ on A330 and the rest (besides 350hrs training) on A320?

Direct upgrade?? I dont think so!

How is the housing situation these days? Is it still bad? does the housing allowance get you a descent place to live or will you be banned to the outskirts of the city?

even there, can you get a descent house?

What about the famous rent-to-buy sheme? Any changes there?

In your case, better know somebody in the place.....
Recruitment is an organized chaos..... as other many departments though..... rostering, ops, HR, housing, but if you happen to know someone to sell your soul to, your life will be nice, as nice as the others one will be bad.... but expats are selfish, aren't they......that's what management is counting on, and it works.....

No need to recruit more .... just roster the one we have to the limits and even more if we can....legality is just a word, if the pilot accepts and there is a problem, guess who will be fired ??? the crew controller and the pilot, not the damn useless c######l manager.... fill the blanks....

Alghazal relax mate you're giving yourself an ulser. Personally I think the guys in recruiting are doing a good job, we've hired 160 pilots in the last 7 months and by the look of things a lot more to come. Standard still remains high so whatever they're doing is working.

The housing issue has very much improved with very high standard big villas in Khalifa B but it does seem that on the apartement side there is a shortage in town. Delma is the nicest and I understand that new buildings are coming up on a monthly basis. The encouraging thing is that the company has listened to the problems and are acting to improve this situation. Lets not forget that we are 4 years old airline with a fleet of 34 aircraft and 2 more A346's arriving by year end.

Dear EY346Driver

“ we've hired 160 pilots in the last 7 months and by the look of things a lot more to come. Standard still remains high so whatever they're doing is working.”-

Most of the 160 pilots come from Africa, Middle East, Asia and the Far east. None or very few come from Western Europe or North America. Have a look at the seniority list.


“The housing issue has very much improved with very high standard big villas in Khalifa B”

Well it seems that everything is high standard to you. The whole thing is a joke.


“Delma is the nicest and I understand that new buildings are coming up on a monthly basis.”

Housing department says there is nothing on the cards. If you know something please share your information. Many People here want to know.


“Lets not forget that we are 4 years old airline with a fleet of 34 aircraft and 2 more A346's arriving by year end.”

I am afraid there are no excuses. As a premium passenger when you choose to fly EY on Diamond (first) class lets say from SYD to LHR you can expect what is promised, advertise or at least what you have paid for. You can expect “higher standard” than BA, QA, EK, SQ, MH, GF, VA.
You don’t go and tell customers it’s a 4 year old airline and don’t expect much. It is business as always.

Dear Static Noise Don't be silly. Nothing to do with flying. I am talking about money, housing, inflation, company policies e.t.c. The current package doesn't seem to be very attractive to western Europeans or North Americans any more but it looks like a good improvement for people coming from other parts of the world. However since you mention it we did have quite a few problems with some guys (incidents) but this is a different story. This is to clear any misunderstandings. You can relax now.

The housing issue has very much improved with very high standard big villas in Khalifa B but it does seem that on the apartement side there is a shortage in town.

As Quoted from EY346driver, What kind of dribble are you speaking of ? The only villas available are one level and very cramped. If you want a large villa, head to Emirates. It is very obvious that the accounting department order these useless shit boxes. People will be very dissapointed by calling these as very big and high standards. As always some effort from various deparment but never enough.

The obvious difference between Etihad and Emirates is that at Emirates evereything is ready for you to move in. NO water bills, Electricity bills, Phone, or Internet bills at Emirates At Etihad they hand you a piece a paper for the water company and the telephone company so that you can go and connect it yourself, And then best part will be the extra expense of around $ 2000 aed a months.

Well the choice is up to you

Alghazal, well said, it has to stop and if people believe nothing else then believe your statement. On top of all that there is a fear within the company (why people are reporting others) and does anyone answer emails now..... no because they don’t want to put anything in writing. My answer is look after yourself and look for a way out should the S*** hit the fan. Unfortunately some are saying something will happen and I hope it does not involve loss of life!

This thread is just going round in circles!
Anyone out there not aware that some of the EY guys are unhappy!!!!
If things really are so bad why are lots of people not voting with thier feet

Lots of talk from certain quarters but little action!
EK has lots of openings for those that think the grass is greener!

SNAM, it's just a craze you will find in all the airlines in the sandpit. The foolish ones will keep moving around in circles eg from GF to EY or QR or to EK. The problems are all the same. Or they just came with a different wrapping. You will hear of problems with accomodation, rostering, overworked pilots, haircut memos, random drug testing, traffic jams, cost of living, income protection, crappy destinations, dogdy management, mad driving blah blah blah blah and the outcome is the same, nobody will leave this place. I have no idea what they put in the air or in the water but it certainly keeps guys here and more will keep coming.......
