When you express concerns on flight safety and/or criticize management, threads vansih on PPRuNe...... Hogan management thread had disappeared today.
It gives you a good idea of how good and relaxing it can be to be working for Etihad. Freedom of speech is non existent. You get fired or get final warning for the slightest mistake.
There is no protection for you or your beloved ones.

Should you leave a job in the civilized world, just be carefull, the grass is no greener on the other side...there is no grass here

For the money aspect of things, you will not make that much more at EY. 320FO's on average pocket about ~ USD 7800. Wide body guys around ~ USD 9000 or so, cause of layovers (but remember halve of that gets pissed away anyway at layovers, unless you slam-click). Of course it is not taxed and on top of that you get a housing allowence/accomodation, nevertheless the UAE's economic infrastructure is designed to suck the money right back into the same pocket it came from. Your savings ability depends heavily on your lifestyle level, you can save some but not all.
Right now the 320 fleet is mess. You will never have 14 days off here on the 320. The rostering is pathetic and the morons that run it are worse. No regard to fatigue, safety, human factors at all. Sometimes, I wonder which hole they dug them out of. The only way to impprove your live is to get off this aircraft, period. So basically the 320 fleet comes down to the survival of the fittest. Either you bail back home or take it up the [email protected]@ for 2+ years, before they transfer you (or whatever is left of you) over to the widebody.

Pay heed to what Chandler Bing says, he is wise beyond his years! as an example a member of crew was recently fired because they were found in possession of an etihad toothpick! I am serious.

Can anyone with a family give some sort of idea of typical monthly expenses. Based upon what they say they will pay for kids at school, i already expect to sub the education by 500 per month so that and a car are a given.

What else forms your monthly budget?

Regards Tonker

All PM's appreciated

Carefull, Ey A320 fleet is as bad as any european charter and worse than most of the low cost carriers.
Career prospect is non existent, even if they lure you with A330 or command, which will never occur before 4 years for A330 and 8 to 10 years for command, even if aircrafts are delivered.
Add fear management, cabin crew being fired for having an EY toothbrush in the bag for instance, new performance based system that will lower your salary if you don't fly on OFF days, illegal, extend duty, violate weather minimum , fuel and FDP, lick your fleet chief's ass, run minimum fuel ......
If you have a decent job at home, do your homework prior to make the decision to come here.
You have been warned, don' complain after joining.

chandler you seem to be the only one who is complaining about etihad
have you ever noted that many people is complaining about qatar,while not so many about etihad?
there must be a reason i think

did you see that etihad is having 4 command upgrade per month,is that an existent career prospect?
what would the command upgrade figures be like from the 2011/2012 with an average of two new aircraft delivered per month?
try to be positive and to see the half glass full,rather than always half empty

Well besides da jokes seriously guyz the situation with my company at the moment is that they have ordered 2 330-300 for april and da 3 rd one coming at june 1.chief pilot has scheduled me for the upgrade for 330 but the planes will be wet lease for saudii airlines through out the whole year jeddah base.15 dayz on 15 dayz of at one of the nice mediterranean shores of the turkish side when you think of another point of view.I just want to know will it be worth it to change companies leaving your home country for one of the major growing airlines in the world(I am an optimistic for etihad) evaluating i will probably getting my upgrade for a captains seat A330 at 2012 when i complete my 4500 tt at the current company.Since i have just turned 30 time is no prospect thinking etihad wise.

AFD, just do the math, 450 first officers in front of you if you join now and 4 upgrades a month ( including the failures ...alot...) gives you around 48 per year....

450 / 48 is around 9 years, isn't it ???
There has never been more than 4 upgrades a month even when we were getting 12 aircrafts a year, because of training capacity.

And watch out the resignations of instructors, A330 /A340 and A320...talking of training capacity.

if it suits you to believe in their lies, good for you....

And don't complain after you join, as you have been warned....

Chandler may be the only one posting because if your on the 320 here your to damn tired to post with the one day off after the flip flops that go on and on. You would think we work for a cargo company with the way the roaster changes. I am at 90 hours for the month and have two days together, finally. If your going to be on the 320 don't come. It's depressing.

Was in HR today and A320 TRIs start resigning.......
If pilots start to leave while there is an economic downturn, what will it be when it starts hiring everywhere.....?
JM will be busy trying to lie again to recruit and make vain promises of quick command and widebody.....
Let's wait and see, the near future shall be interesting......
Experience is vanishing from A320 skippers , the remaining being either exhausted, demotivated or poorly trained by either low hours or brown noser yesmen trainers, and cadets come on the right hand seat....good recipe.....
Rostering will be a disaster very soon.... and the guys taking care of it are useless......

Good luck to all
