Hi swimmers,

anyone who passed the assessment last year got a contract lately? Not a DOJ just the contract.... it seems that all the guys getting a DOJ in 2013 got already a contact last may.... what about the ones who did not get the contract and got straight the pool in july?

Pre Employment Medical Questionnaire

Hi ,

Does anyone know that if we have to fill out this form with a doctor or only by myself?
also If I mention that I smoke ,would it disqualify me from the employment?

Interesting question Jmodel,

I did my interview in September and straight to the pool and no one with me have had any news since then, but at least now we can see they are moving and soon the B787s will be in the air again, so I think they are going to expedite a bit, but i dont expect anything for this year, maybe before march 2014.

@ mmorel....
The medical questionnaire does not need to be filled out by a doctor.
Cabin crew are not allowed to smoke, however that does not apply to flight deck crew and actually quite a few of the pilots here smoke.

@ speedhold
There is western union.
Both of the mentioned banks offer at least 1 free transfer per month. There is also a fee to some middle man though, I believe it goes through Barclays in London.

QR update holding pool

I just received an update from QR.
Is it me... or do I have an impression it's almost a copy-paste of the previous one.
The difference now... it clearly says there is NO need of SO this year.
The next update is in September.

Pretty much the same. Until the NDIA is open and fully operational, the 787's problems are solved and the delivery rate is at the expected speed, we will recieve the same message.

2 guys from my group (did selection in FEB 2012) received a joining date in NOV 2013, as a FO 320. But they did sign a contract already in MAY 2012.
Me, as a FTSO... still no guarantee that they will send me a contract at all, as they only need a limited amount of FTSO.

It has been said before that about 400 people are in the pool. And about half of them are FTSO and the other half are FO.
I don't know how many exactly are in the pool. But it looks like the number is getting smaller.

Yes they are mmorel.
Child above 24 years fall into the category: eligible family members like father, mother,son in law....
In other word they can share a total of 12 tickets/ year.(ID90/50).
Up to 24 years old, unlimited id90/50 tickets.( for the child)

According what I have in my staff travel, yes they can use ZED ticket.
You don't have to list your mother in law and father in law now,you can do it any time later on.HR will only approve it after you submit a copy of the passport( of the family member) and wife's birth certificate( for you parent in law).

Question regarding the "Eligible Family Members". How long does HR take to process the documents you submit before they allow you to issue tickets for them?

@leeroy
the basic salary for DEC is 31000 riyal. If you are not type rated, then you wil be bonded and 5000 Riyal per month deducted for 18 months. transportation allowance is 1500 Riyal. Most new hires have company housing vs the allowance right now. So basic pay is 32,500 or 27,500 depending on bond.
