You will be stuck in a hotel for 3 months and no new housing planned for the near future. If you go to EK, the day you arrive they will give you the keys to a shiny new villa.

As you may already know, housing is an issue. But I am pretty sure it's been taken care of. Recruiting pilots and accomodating them are two different jobs involving two different departments. Abu Dhabi housing issue + some lack of coordination and planning between these two services = this current housing pb in EY.
Lists of people waiting for an accomodation are getting longer...But as soon as EY take delivery of some new appartments and/or villas, those lists will vanish. I have no factual insights, I feel that this situation will not last more than three months.
Some people related lies from the housing dpt; actually they don't and can't promise anything at this stage. Having 2 or more kids is a big plus (big flats avail...).

Hi,
I applied online 2 weeks ago and still don't have any news...
I would like to ask about the current contact delays to people who have been contacted following a recent application.
Many thanks.

(profile is 3100 h, mainly on light turboprops...)

I think you're right about type rated only at the moment from what's being said at the road shows. Non type rated probably later this year, but apply any way.

re: 60T jets

Are they hard over on heavy time? Does EY give any thought to hiring people with light jet time (ie military single engine fighter time)?

Pls advise, and thanks in advance.

Two A340-600s later in the year (like 4th qtr) and two A330s early next year.

Some, 2, I think A320s but these are also replacing some that are leaving so not too sure about an overall increase in that fleet.

Recent rumour is also a couple of GE engined A330s too, but unconfirmed.

Hi,

I applied in June last year and still no word, just the standard automated email "thanks for applying" response.

Currently on 763ER, 2200 on type, 3500+ Total time, hold Frozen ATPL (cannot unfreeze until become captain, yes stupid I know)

What are my chances of being hired on the T7? What routes do they operate?

Its been 8 months now and starting to give up hope.

Regards,

OW

Presently, not a chance with a frozen ATPL unless you are Emirati. Careers website states ICAO ATPL. I believe the ATPL must also be endorsed with the required type rating.

Next deliveries I think are 2 A319s, 1 in May and 1 in June.

The same reason why hundreds of cabin crew passed the interview only to be told months later that their application was unsuccessful. Why ? They don't have a F**KIN' clue !!

Sorry to ask this i've had a quick look through this thread (maybe too quick!) but was wondering how much utilities and a broadband net connection would cost when you eventually get an apartment for a single person.

Also when you are in the hotel for x months do they offer broadband and how much is that (from what i read i doubt its included). I'm guessing skype is still an issue.....

You can get internet connected to your room, depending on where they put you. Most have some form of computer access in the building.

Cost, pass, but not too much.
