They had a few assessments during november for A330 FO's. They are also holding interviews in Jan for current rated A330 FO's.

Chandler Bing, is the reason due to lack of crew on the Airbus 320?

Chandler bing

Boeing 777-300er:

If you read back through Chandler's posts you will realize that you can disregard about 90% of what he rants about. If he had actually gone and done some flying in Afghanistan, he would not have posted his last comment!

Regarding the A320, I am not sure, but I dont think they are that short of crew. I understand the issues are more to do with the roster patterns which involve a lot of night turn-arounds to the Asian subcontinent. Understandably the crew eventually have enough of these and when you do three of these in a row, fatigue sure starts to set in.

Unfortunately, that is the nature of the A320 job description.

Fishbath,

Etihad are recruiting First Officers. Unless you are type rated on one of our fleets your chances are very slim right now. There is a one off non-rated interview coming up but you would not qualify for that.

The type rating is probably your best bet.

Good luck

There will be A330/340 First Officer interviews next year. You may well have the minimum requirements but so do an awful lot of other qualified rated pilots so don't be too disheartened if you do not hear as soon as you expect to.

So I guess they will be looking for 330/340 types only? Absolutely no hiring for the 320?

....And what about those 777s coming. Who will be placed on those - new hires or internal fleet transfer?

If its going to be new hires, I don't imagine there are that many 777 rated guys on the market for a new job.

There will be hiring on the A320.

The B777s are not coming until the second half of 2011 so its too early to say.

Gentlemen

I have been reading all of the thread and now have a quite good understanding of what to expect, however as I am scheduled for an F/O A330 interview at the end of Jan I would like to get the latest information on what is being asked and what to expect in the Sim.

Thanks a lot for your help and all the best.

you tell me one person who works for an airline in the middle east and is happy with management. You tell me one person that works for the airlines in the west thats happy with management. Hard to find. Tell me one person who has worked in the middle east and now works back in the west who isn't happy with their current managment. also hard to find

mkfmbos, they are not hard to find. I do know many pilots who went back west and dislike their managements very much. Some of them even regret going back...

A320 Dec

Happy New Year and many more to all.

Are there any plans to recruit DEC's on the A320?

Based on a resource plan that is subject to change, 16 A320 F/O (40 on A330) and no DEC on Airbus for 2010.

Need help with Etihad

Hello All

I am thinking about joining EY as a First Officer, but before I waste mine or their time I wanted to get some feed back from guys who are already working at EY.
I fly as First Officer on A320 for operator in U.S.A. I am around 1200 out of 2100 pilots . The upgrade is 5 or 6 years from now as we have slowed our growth. I been here for 4 years now. I get about 14 days OFF a month and somtimes I overnight at home so I am home around 16 to 17 days a month. As far as pay goes. I credit around 90 to 95 hours a month and block around 80 to 84 hours. My rate for the first 78 hours of credit is at $91.00 per hour...
91x78=$7098.00 USD anything above 78 hour is paid at 150% $136.50. So for 90 hours credit a month my pay is around $8736.00USD. They also pay us $13.00 USD hour for flying redeyes and that comes to around $300.00 to $400.00 a month and another $600.00 a month in perdiem. So all in all I make about $9636.00 a month and take out about $2500.00 in tax so I bring home around 7k a month. We have 401k we put 5% than company match the 5% and they give us another 5% in form of profitsharing regardless if company profits or not...So far they have..thank god. I have over 8000 hours total time Typed on A320/EMB-190/and CRJ-200. I have about 760 hours PIC on A320 and over 2000 as FO, and been instructor/Check Airman on all 3 types. Also I am 38 years old married with 1 child. Would it be good idea to come to EY as a A320 FO....would I make the same pay....I was told EY FO make more . How long would it take to move to different fleet as I really dont want to fly A320 for rest of my life if I dont have too. Thanks a million in any feed back, and fly safe.
