Angel Aircraft

It's quite funny to read the speculation on an aircraft order just a week prior to the announcement. ATR 42 considering the business class, though....come on guys! 737 max when they can't deliver for over 18 months unless FD are sending crews to self build? Old EK 330's......oh dear! 787s at 3.5 times the price of our 737-800s...... The hint is in the CARGO!

Yeah, the 73 is really difficult to fly But it is quite funny to see experienced Fo's and Capt's twitch in their seats when they always have to program the FMS first no matter the situation. Because the aircraft will of course stop flying otherwise

New website??

Very strange... Do you know if CTC is still doing the selection for Flydubai? No mention to them in the new flydubai website, no link to flydubai-ctcaviation application as before, and no recognition of my entry email/password when entering in the new website "search vacancies" neither...¿? Any update about that?

Same here!
And when you go to the new website and apply for a pilot position the application process doesn't seem to be the same: they ask you for a résumé,and to upload a photo ID,etc...I had none of that in the previous application. I wonder if we have to start a new application?
But I still can access my application through the ctc address in my browser,it still says that I passed the screening,but there's still no available date for an interview...

Every "Apply to be a FlyDubai pilot" button on the FD website sends me to CTC, so not sure why you can't find it.
Back to navclass guys!

Holy crappers, some serious reductions during the runway closure next year. 16 destinations temporarily cancelled and a 47% seat capacity reduction. I really thought all would be shifted over to DWC but not at this stage...

High Energy: Holy crappers indeed... and, if it is correct, one would imagine that such a significant reduction in the flying program could particularly impact those (flight & cabin crew) for whom flight-duty-pay forms a significant percentage of their overall take-home pay?!

Runway closure

Profit share will be April (subject to distortion!) so it will be before runway closure....

The media is reporting 75 max as the order, so much for range improvement and cargo increase?

And why cancel many destinations with only one flight a day or less? You would think they'd keep some traffic flowing as some are still quite 'fragile' destinations.
Look at Yekaterinaburg, Air Arabia serves SVX too and will now get all those pax as there is no other choise to get to UAE/DXB/SHJ. Furthermore Transaero will be starting a big 'Russia to DXB' expansion including from some of our destinations.

On the other hand looking at the pattern of destinations it looks like they still have an option of moving flights to DWC as they are 'onwards' connecting pax like Kazan to Male/Colombo.

And there goes the Airbus dream...

Tangmo: Wrt "Why not ops out of DWC?"

It's not that the airports are especially distant from one another, but the logistics are immense!

You'd have passengers whom are ticketed for flights out of 'Dubai' (and when they think 'Dubai', they're thinking 'DXB' and not 'DWC'... in fact bugger-all people are even aware that DWC exists, never mind where it is?!!), and you can be sure that they'd accordingly turn up at DXB and they'd then need transporting down to DWC... and then there are those passengers whom are connecting between FZ & EK (& other airlines) and vice versa (how would we deal with them?). And that there are bugger-all connecting flights out of DWC. And that there is still, as yet, a very limited transport infrastructure to / from DWC, and that simply getting to DWC is expensive in itself (e.g. in terms of a taxi fare from down-town Dubai or from DXB), and that the metro doesn't reach there (yet).

And if FZ were to start transporting pax to / from DWC, there's increase in road transport, e.g. 1x full B737-800 would probably require 3x coaches just for the passengers and also a good sized delivery van (and / or lorry) for all their baggage... just do the math on how many vehicles that would require and the direct cost of procuring & running that transport (and the indirect costs associated with road congestion and / or traffic jams, and all the effects thereof) ?!

And what of managing crews, and / or the engineering support, etc, etc, and / or the inevitable chaos that would occur (to all of the above) during the transition period between the transferring of flights / ops from DXB to DWC, and then back again some weeks later, and the list goes on and on, and all of that for a supposed period of maybe +11 weeks ?!

That all said, it's just occurred to me (hence the edit) that, wrt the dates announced for the runway's maintenance (1st May - 20th July):
  • The workers mid-day-break period starts on 15th June (lasting thru until 15th September), and during which employers must not make staff to work outside between 12.30pm and 3pm.
  • The last 3 weeks & 2 days of the planned maintenance work will be during Ramadan;
... uhm, wanna take bets when it's actually gonna be finished ?!

To add to OKC's post, no foreseeable move to DWC.

CTC x New Website

Does anybody know anything more about the new Website, that does not show the old application process by CTC, and our application data via application number?
I've passed in all CTC process (interview, Simulator, etc), and recieved an email with the approval confirmation. I should to wait to the Flydubai contact "in the near future", but one month has passed, and nothing until now.
As I'm NTR, I know that I should expect to start only in the next semester, but the lack of information, and this new website without CTC and our data, make me a little worried.
The TR guys that did the interview in the same day are already at Dubai for start their training. They went to there in the last week.

Worried about new website too

The new flydubai website doesn't show evidence of been linked to CTC as some weeks ago. Should I register as new on the new one? Answering the advice of another guy in this forum that stated..."all the pilot application in the new FD website takes me to CTC link...":i am afraid this is not correct, I still cant find relation between the new FD web and CTC...
