You don't join the 330/340 fleet - you join the 330 or 340 fleet (or possibly 320 in your case). Then at some point in the future (possibly 12 months, possibly longer) you will CCQ to one of the others and eventually MFF either 320/330 or 330/340.

Although you have some input into this, at the end of the day they put you where they need you and at the moment that is likely to be on the 320 if you have that rating.

are you 320, 330 or 777 rated?

there are 2 companies within Etihad. 320 and the rest. if you will join on the 320 fleet.... well, i don t even know where to start. just stay away. try EK?

Saviboy:
I've heard that the story of this agreement between EY and EK IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE!!!!

EY tried to get a deal but the reply was: "what do you offer if we don't take your pilots?"


Did anybody from Ey apply recently?

Dear friends

there is one thing i can't understand.I read 50% of this thread and the main topic is that life in EY sucks on the 320 but why are you still suggesting people to stay away from it?If the company won't be able to recruit enough pilots your life will be always miserable on the small bus...so i have 2 scenarios 1-you are doing this intentionally to get more power against managment since they are giving you hard times 2)You don't want to make other's life as miserable as yours since you joined EY on the 320

cheers

CD, in my opinion, most guys post here simply because it s a way for them to vent. nothing more.

1)Is it possible that Ey management read these discussions? yes. people on the 320 have been complaining for what? at least 1 year? what has changed? nothing. so exactly what power against management would be/ has been gained?

2) I m convinced that a lot of potential candidates read PPRuNe and that what they read here might discourage them to apply. having said that, the company is not in shortage of applications. they would have no problem recruiting enough pilots if they wanted to. The T and C's have deteriorated. this doesn' t usually happens when a company has a hard time recruiting.

your second scenario suggests that some of us would be doing this out of compassion and I guess that s a possibility

Dubaiforever, please tell us about the source of your info that makes you say that "IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE!!!!"

Several EY guys applied recently and not so recently and didn' t hear anything.

There's absolutely no shortage of applicants. I heard "first hand" that they're interviewing around 60 candidates now, and have another 200 "on hold" whom they might take in case some of the 60 don't qualify or change their mind.

And who knows how many more pilots are keen on joining, being in an even worse (or thinking they are in an even worse) airline right now. Or being out of a job altogether.

Etihad will NEVER run out of newjoiners. Guess why the conditions on the 320 (and on other fleets) never improved since years - there's plenty more supply than demand.

And there IS NO ANTI-POACHING AGREEMENT between EY and EK.

I guess that EY guys didn't hear anything just because it was already too late when they applied. With the new requirements Emirates has much more applicants and probably they put on "low priority" the EY pilots. (but an EY captain told me "absolutely no agreement"). May be they don't want to disappoint Abu Dhabi but I wouldn't be surprise if somebody else from EY get a call!
You will never be invited for an interview if you don't apply!!!!

If this new policy at EY will be announced shortly as many attest to, I would be more concerned with looking at A320 tech quiz and simulator boys and girls not 330 and 777.
Good Luck!

Safe Flying

Guys, could anybody help me out with some information regarding the tech-quiz and the interview?
I'm not too worried about the sim (A320), but would really appreciate a PM with some info about the writtens.
Thanks a lot!
