pay restructure

Rumours have it that the 320 pay structure is being reviewd to raise it in line with wide-bods. Either replacing flight pay with sector pay, or paying the AUH 'layovers' as away layovers. Could be intreresting, and related to the number of senior pilots wanting xfer to 320/330 roster......

I thought the pay is the same for all fleets be it A320/A330/B777. Now the flight hour may make your your pay different if you fly more...From what I am getting the A320 guys fly more...Am I missing something here guys..sorry to ask.

The Captain/First Officer basic salary and flight pay is exactly the same no matter which aircraft type you are flying, which is fair. Having compared my take home salary to an A320 Captain, my layover allowances were understandably higher but then his flight pay was higher.

they basic salary is the same, however suppose a 320 pilot and a 340 pilot flew the same number of hours in a month, the 340 pilot would make several hundred dollars more in layover money (and most likely have more days off)

EY wants to eliminate fleet envy by not directly paying more based on the size of the aircraft, which is good, but the 320 fleet invariably flies more due to the shorter segments. The basic pay is good on any fleet, and the main reason most pilots want to transfer is the improved schedule on the widebodies.

No A320 girls or guys being called for interview. At present only rated A330/340 and a few B777 First Officers being called.

Do you get any over-time pay for say 75 hours+ a month?

How come? Either you don't fly much or he flies too much!
To be fair, A320 pay structure should be also indexed to sectors flown.
In 7 hours flight time period, A320 skippers can do up to 6 T/O and LDG where LR/ULR skippers do only one, is that fair to get the same salary?
Why is it normal to consider that some maintenance costs (ENG, L/G...) are function of cycles and not the crew?

If thats the case that is excellent news for the 320 drivers. It's a paradox that the most hard working fleet gets paid the lowest. 330/340 fo's make just about the same cash as 320 skippers. At least if nothing else, that will have something going for the good-ole tuc-tuc

Hiring

Can anyone tell me how aggressively Etihad is hiring? I am looking at the careers page and for qualifications it states;
a) A minimum of 1500 hours total flying time and a minimum of 1000 hours on multi crew,glass cockpit jet aircraft of which 500 hours should be on the A320 .....
b) Preference would be given to candidates with Airbus experience.
The two statements contradict each other.
I have 1900 total and 700 CRJ time (U.S. time). Can anyone tell me if my application would be considered?
Thank You in advance.

I would describe Etihad recruitment as ticking over at the moment, certainly not aggressive.

You are looking at a very long wait with that experience given there are so many available A320 drivers out there.

There is no shortage of applicants who have double and triple your total time just on the 320. You are a few years from a chance at an interview. Your approach of looking at all options for advancing your career will serve you well. Good luck.

flight0813,

agree with the above posts but,

The two statements contradict each other.
I fail to see the contradiction.

Good luck

Talking

Would someone in the know just confirm for me that all sim rides, including us Boeing Plebs, are done on the A330?!

Cheers

Thank you Jetlagged

Could I ask if the Jepps General book that gets referred to on here as a helpful study guide is the Jeppesen A&P Technician General Textbook in its full title! Just before I part with my hard earned money...!!!!

Thanks!

I would just down load Nat Track information, study up on the specific bird your going to be interviewing for. Also, know your black box items...
