Thumbs up Calculations.... mmmmh...

Well Guys,

after reading through all this I did the calculation myself and was damn surprised! In 2006 I did earn ( including housing allowance ) 358.989 AED, and under the new scheme ( including layover allowance ) I would have gotten 452.695 AED. That's an increase of 26%, if my calculation is right! 2007 will not look like this, I know. Under the old scheme sitting at home and waiting for a license didn't earn you much credit. But, as pointed out from Management as well, the new pay system is supposed to do just that, detach our pay from factors like leave, sick days and waiting for a license. By the way, I flew 538 Hours in the past 12 month... in EK they dream of that!!!

I would rather see some improvement in rostering. One request per month is pretty slim adding that swapping flights is almost impossible and an average 5 days AVBL are 5 days not having a roster!

Overall I'm happy with the company, though I don't know how long I can cope living in the UAE...

Happy Landings everyone....

Since when is layover allowance included in your pay? It is to re-imburse you for money you have spent to eat while away. It is something every other airline in the world pays and something we should have received from day one. DO NOT INCLUDE LAY OVER ALOWANCE IN YOUR PAY CALCULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!
And you can't include your housing allowance either. The guys in company provided don't get that. And again, that is not pay, that is to provide you with a place to live.

All allowances are money, therefore it depands on each person's lifestyle if he's able to utilize part of the allowance to contribute into his savings.

Judging by the new pay package, loyalty means sh*t at EY. From the most senior captains all the way to the captains who have recently joined, all captains have been stiffed by the new management. Only those pilots who work in the office got a noticeable raise in pay

Just curious.... how longs the bond at EY and does it reduce over time?

Also does the company practise Mixed Fleet Flying?

Cheers

Clarification.

From The Etihad Website.


"Starting salary of AED 24500 or US$ 6655 per month for First officers and an annual salary increment of AED 500 per month."

Does that mean you get an extra AED 500 per month? I'm guessing it's a typo.

Updated EY package

Heard there were a few amendments to the vacation allotment. Any truth to the rumor?
