@ Cloud Bunny

I have a good mate, whom, did come from FR (based in MRS), and, as a FO, he was making more than an EY 330 CPT !

So mate ,stay at FR, in a civilized country !

Maybe that was the case, now not possible. Ts and Cs have been savaged here to point where guys are turning down Commands as they would end up on LESS money on the new skippers contracts. Believe me i know my own pay cheque. Etihad is more than i get now in every regard. Keep the info coming guys, thanks!

Let him apply !!!
It's like the guys who bought properties at the peak of the bubble in Dubai and were told that it was a mistake. They didn't want to listen, they were warned.
Let Cloud bunny join, it will ease our pain , but he won't be able to complain then

Yes thank you Chandler. I know your being facetious, but let me apply!! I'm not thinking about this lightly, hence why I'm doing a hell of a lot of research (not just centred around PPRuNe) before I even contemplate filling in the appplication form. My decision, will be based around what I feel is best for me and my other half. Our circumstances are a lot more flexible than others, due to the fact we are young (both 27), have no kids, would both be working and would have an escape plan drawn up as well just in case it goes tits up. You don't risk everything moving halfway around the world - those are the people you are referring to. Not me. You have no idea who I am. I've seen your previous posts, you are clearly a very bitter and twisted individual, regretful of the choices you have made. Well that buster is your fault - noone elses.
If I think there is a sniff that things wont work out, or there is too much risk involved then we wont do it. I'm not desperate to come over, it's just that in the current state of things both here (UK) and elsewhere make this a very attractive proposition for us. Not for everyone, but for us, yes. I take on board everything I am told, I have spent enough time in the region to not be blinded by the glitter and fanfare so you can rest easy that I'm not some juvenile running around going "ooooo isn't it wonderful" and being blinded to everything that isn't.
So to get back to what I originally asked for, if anyone has anything constructive (thank you NTM) to say to aid a fellow professional in his thought process it would be much appreciated.

Cheers
CB

CloudBunny:

I have met the CP of the 777 (KT) and to my mind you WILL NOT find a more decent guy at any other airline. Fair, honest and professional. Try saying those 3 words at a vast majority of airlines.

If the rest of the worlds major airlines (wannabe and actual) had more guys like him at the helm then professionalism in airlines would no longer be a word laughed at.

I cannot speak of the ME lifestyle (other than layovers) myself, or EY management. But what I do know about EY is all positive. Bear in mind the decision you may make, ie living in the ME: debtors prison, human rights, work rights.... Hell! You can be arrested for being raped! (See recent media).

I respect your tenacity to be as best informed as possible. Just be aware that most pilots will complain that the sky is too blue....... And be aware of the job and location you may be ASKING to be a part of.

Hotdolley,

Did you get fired ?

I thought, after RH mail, nobody will be fired , even with the decrease CC on the planes.

"I have met the CP of the 777 (KT)" ....

I must have missed this, when did KT become the B777 CP? I do agree though that KT is a top guy and if it is true, Mabrouk!!

KA.
The Pollution levels in HK are now not safe for a family.
I'm willing to take a pay cut, but have many questions about EY.
@ FYI my March take home pay was over 30,000 USD and I still am thinking of leaving.

If someone could PM who works there on the A330...

I just saw about 10 320 candidates being interviewed. only 320 FO hiring for now. so you should ask to see some 320 rosters...you really should

By calculations on the website a new 330 fo would be on about 30,000 dhr a month for 70 hours flying and a few layovers. How much do the 320 drivers take home given it is fleet pay??? How is there a difference?
