Don't worry For all those on the 320, a certain training provider for EY is providing completed cadets like a sausage factory. Who have an extremely good work ethic and with such high theoretical knowledge it will just blow everyone away. Also the way they can fly the sim, that they do it so well that the company likes them to come back and back and back to do some more just to see if they can get it right.
If guys are complaining now, all I can say is wait and see..........

I am new on here, but I am also flying like FrankBama. Goeasy are you an F/O or Capt. As I understand it, the Captions are the ones being slammed do to a shortage. If it isn't the reason and it's just some of us are being made to fly 85 to 97 hours a month while others fly sixty is BS. I also have not had three days off in a row since end of July last year.

Ey Is No Longer Recruiting A-320 Captains. The Website Only Allows You To Apply As An A-320, A-330 Or B-777 First Officer. Are There More Internal Upgrades At The Moment? Did Ey Ever Hire Direct Entry Captains On The B-777? I Have Heard Upgrades Are Faster At Ey Than Ek, Any Truth?

The only thing EY can push-back properly, it's aircrafts orders, not real planes................

I wish I would.
I envy these 3 guys who have resigned the last 2 weeks.
I have to carry on my shoulders the wrong decision I took by coming here.
Every day I regret this move, but can't leave now ....loans and kids in school.....

How do you A320 drivers feel about flying with the cadets? Are they any good or are they all inexperienced, obnoxious tw*ts?

Why do you think they are called cadets?

They are inexperienced like you and colony when you both first started flying or were you the son of the virgin Pilot?

Maybe he was enquiring as to whether they're obnoxious or not... the inexperienced bit might have been tongue-in-cheek

Guys and Girls,

Good afternoon. I have done a search but so far unable to pin point the information I'm after. I am contemplating, at the moment, an application to your good selves for 777 F/O position (currently 737-800 instructor with monster Irish Low Co in UK). What I was after was an idea of the route structure on the 777, the average number of trips per month/layovers etc. General lifestyle stuff - you know the thing.
If someone was able to compare that to the Airbus fleet (330/340) that would be tremendous.
I appreciate all info, but really I'm not after the pros and cons of living in the ME, I'm pretty well travelled around the area and like it!!
Thanks for your help, much appreaciated.

CB

On a different note!

Has any one had problems updating their CV on Etihad? I applied about a year ago but was a bit short on hours, I now meet the requirements but cant seem to update my details. I keep getting thrown out at the log in page. ggggggrrrr it annoying.

Does any one have an email address for the recruitment section I ask ask about this problem?

Thanks

not being on the 777, I can t really give you lots of details but some of my friends are on the fleet and I was just asking one of them how many days they average a month and he said about 9. i believe the main destinations are toronto, bangkok, jeddah, manilla. until somebody more knowledgeable about the topic steps in that should help a little.
good luck

Thanks for the efforts guys so far, keep em coming I'm really keen to understand a bit more.
Astronaute -
Stay at FR
- are you kidding?!! Come over, give it a go. The company and the Country (UK) make it just about impossible to live and have any kind of lifestyle here. I'm not going to go on some never-ending rant, it's just enough to say that it sucks big time and having spent a fair bit time already out in Dubai/Abu Dhabi, with all it's faults, it's a bloody paradise in comparison. The pay and benefits alone as an F/O on the 777 (off the website) is more than I get as a skipper in FR and then I'm robbed of nearly all of it in tax. Just enough left to cover the mortgage and feed us. Great!!!

Anyways, like I said keep the info coming it's much appreciated and I'm always open to a PM or two.

Cheers guys and girls.

Hello Cloud B,

Being on the 777, it has been pretty good so far.
It is a very different lifestyle as compared to the 320.
Of course, as the fleet grows, it is going to change.
But so far, you ll have a hard time finding an unhappy 777 pilot.
In a nutshell, great crews, great Chief pilot. It s small enough that you have that flying club atmosphere. We all know each other.
For FOs,
We can plan on 3-5 nights away per month. Unless you get a YYZ trip. It s a 2 or 3 day layover. So at the most 8 nights away per month.
Our regular layover are MNL, CGK, BKK, YYZ. MAN is coming up this summer.
MNL and CGK are operated as a 3 pilot operation. YYZ is a 4 pilot operation.
BKK is the only layover trip with only 2 pilots.
We do have turn around flights. RUH and JED are the the normal ones.
Sometimes we do get DMM, KHI, LHE, BAH. but rarely.
Days off average between 8-13 per month.
Block hours vary as well. The average is 60-90 hours per month.


Thats it for now.

Later,

Thanks a lot NTM, much appreciated and very helpful. Sounds pretty good!! The more I look into it the more convinced I am that, for me (I understand that for others it's a different story), it sounds like the best possible move. The other half is equally keen and has already made progress with job offers!
If anyone else can enlighten me further, as usual, it'll be much appreciated.
Cheers
