Is there anyone at Etihad that has children in school?

If so, could I ask that you share some information about:

cost/child ( I understand the elementary is less the High School) vs. reimbursement?
Choices of schools?
Any prejudices towards western kids?
Do they have a bus to pick up and deliver the kids?

Housing: what is available with the amount of money that they give you for housing...any one have any pictures they can share?

Company transportation to and from work.

Visa sponsorship for family members.

What would a furnished villa be vs. a non-furnished one?



Thank you.

DEC'S????

Thought no DEC's were being employed, except a few TRI's on Tuk-TUK??

I see the careers website has openings for DEC's for ALL fleets??

Why are they doing this?? More than enough suitable candidates for upgrade and not many a/c coming this year. Is this so we can provide crews to operate for other airlines in the region, (MEA???)

Guess when the R/H seat drivers on the Tuk-Tuk see this happening, EK will be looking even better. And WHO can blame them??

So all our f/o's will be going from Abu Dhabi to the world, and not returning.

Sir O

Calm down - RH and JM have answered this on the EY forum - something to do with the new recruiting system. Only looking for some DEC instructors on A320 to train cadets.

If you believe anything those guys say, I have an island I'd like to sell you Get your head out of the sand
Just like they didn't post the fleet training manager 340 position internally because they are bringing in another cronie from GF to do the job.

Actually I do believe them - well more accurately I believe that is their intention today . We all know things change and they have made no secret of that.

If 10 more A330 instructors were happy to be CCQ'd 320 and MFF on that fleet instead of 330/340, I am guessing we probably wouldn't need these DEC's. That is not to criticise those guys - I wouldn't do it either. But if the company can't get people from within, they have no choice but to get DEC's do they?

If you have a better solution, please share

I applied last week and received a computer generated email a day later stating that my application is on hold and thanking me for my patience.

I am an Airbus 320 TRI. Just have to wait and see I guess.

Sandpit, why would any 330/340 instructor want to take a pay cut and fly with these cadets everyday...

In one instuctor meeting they asked us(), we said show us the $$$$. No extra money!!!

As soon as the expansion starts again, the DEC will be coming also. It's all about saving $$$ over here.

Sorry!

Canada Rocks - that was my point! Why would any current EY 330 instructor do it. No doubt why the company is hiring DEC TRI/TRE's for the 320.

Things are getting sad here bro.I don't think is a good move.

The A320 TRI are explored to the limit over here and fly once 2 months a A330 Layover just to stay current.

But their lives are much better than the current line pilots on the A320. Tuk Tuk life here means red eyes bro!


AS a TRI ,Why not Vietnam? Much more fun!

Hi guys,

I am seriously considering making a change and looking at the Middle East as an option. I have read the entire post (took all day and all night) and have done alot of research into living in the Middle East. However there seems to be alot of conflicting information and alot of it is out of date.

I am looking for current up-to date answers to the following questions directed at current Etihad A320 F/Os..which I'm sure will be of benefit not only to me, but also to a hundred others in my situation:
  1. how many hours do you fly per year assuming you take all of your annual leave entitlements?
  2. how many overnights do you do per month? (and how much in AED do you make in allowances)
  3. how long approx. to command on the A320 or how long to wide-body and subsequent command on widebody?
  4. is it possible to commute from Dubai? (i.e. pocket the housing allowance and rent relatively cheap in Dubai)
  5. if you have no need for the education allowance, do they still give it to you
  6. is it a nightmare to get leave during the Ramadan? (i.e. does everyone request annual leave during this time)
  7. is staff travel available on EK? (i.e. to get home to a destination that EK serves direct and EY doesn't)
Many thanks in advance to those of you who will take the time to answer my questions. Cheers
