Hi everyone,

Can someone tell me how much an A320 TRI makes in EY?
And what is a typical A320 Roster?

Airbus 320 DEC's

It is not my intention to stir up emotions. Is EY planning on recruiting DEC's in the near future given next year's expansion?

cayenne you talk out your ass, on the tuk tuk we get overtime thats because we are short of pilots, and surely it would be the same on other fleets, so how you expect crew sched to get things right when numbers are low... now do your maths..... if your not happy go and join the happy gang over in QR and then you will have a lot to moan about...

same old people on here complaining..... whats the saying here we have 2 buckets one for cash and one for s..t so wich ever one is full first then we leave..... i guess none of your are yet or maybe you just like the s..t

get facts right before we slag of EY... yes i am new but that does not stop me from saying what i think..

this site i thought was for rumours not slagging of companies and not having facts at hand.

anyway bak to my tuk tuk have flight now... whoppie night flights love them NOT

You certainly are NEW on the 320. Ive been on the 320 for just under 2 yrs and NEVER had overtime. Always if there is a heavy roster the next one is light to keep you under the 150hrs in 2 months. Moreover you are the first I have heard of that has made overtime on the 320 in that time.
(f/o's) that is. The same applies on the 330. Generally, the only guys to make overtime are those on 330/340 roster that get called out on a ulr std by duty. Give it 2 yrs in the company on the 320 MR NEW on the 320 and we'll see what u post and whose 'talkin out there ass' as you put it then.

What?? Source?? When??? There are some very experienced FO's on the 320 (7,000 hours+, 4+years on the 320). Why not upgrade these guys?

And most of the A320 FOs are very experienced not only some of them...

The 320 holding should have been emptied as far as i know in the early 2010
there should be an holding pool of 330 rated guys at the moment

@flyer
sorry i didn't specify that i was talking about first officer holding pool
i can confirm that there're dec's in the holding pool,but as far as i know they actually have a policy to not hire dec's until their own resources(f/o) would be enough to cover their needs

Don't be too sure about no DEC's. I can guarantee you within the net couple of months DEC's will arrive on the 320. Especially with the 320 captains that are leaving, 4 confirmed so far with others playing there cards close to there chests, I believe it makes it easier to leave this place if no one knows your going.

I hear that at least 2 F/O's are off the Qatar as 777 f/o's, not a great place to live but don't work as hard as the 320 and more chance to commute.

Interesting times ahead for EY management, wonder if they fall asleep with the echos of " I told you so " bouncing around the room. If people are leaving now what's gonna happen when the economies around the world pick up and airlines in the states and europe need crews again.

..........." I told you so "...........

Question the "SINGLE" issue

Hey boys and Girls,

looking to shift to Etihad for a better salary, better weather and better etc. However I'm puzzled by an issue I've heard about a few times and I get loads of different info from various people.
What is the situation like for an unmarried couple who would like to co-habit? does the company frown down upon this? is it even allowed?

would appreciate some answers.

@balticflier: What have you done!! With that question all UAE and GCC haters will jump here!

If one of the following three posters after me wrote you with a positive answer I will gladly delete my PPRuNe account. Many posters here are hypocrites. Do not believe everything said here!

Here a similar question and the aftermath http://www.pprune.org/middle-east/41...me-couple.html

Thanks for the link SkyDive.

so basically how hard should one work to hide the fact that he/she is living with their partner? I mean is the stress involved something ridiculous, such as not leaving the house at the same time and keeping the curtains closed 24/7? or is it more obvious such as her not paying for, say, the telephone bills of the house where I'm living?

For example, we currently live in Latvia. I pay rent, she pays bills. we both work and are registered here under the same address. is that risky in Abu Dhabi? should she go through the hassle of registering herself in a different apartment?

Its actually hard to imagine how true certain things are... I doubt there'd be that many westerners working in the UAE if the rules were REALLY that strict!

And one more question... daft though it may seem... to what extent does my girl have to "cover up" in Abu Dhabi? would she have to wear a veil? Sorry for the questions folks but I really have NO idea!!!
