Oh! This (^^^^) is annoying! So they have stopped the recruitment drive for pilots? They must be pretty confident, with all the Ryanair, easyJet, TUI, JET2, WestJet etc etc Recruitment Roadshows coming up in Dubai?! WOW.....they must have REALLY nailed their growing pains and pilot retention then. HAPPY DAYS!! Hoping to get assessment NEXT yer then. I have asked the HR lot for news, as they offered me several dates in Nov and Dec this year?!

I ask this as to know whether a commute back to Europe is possible by doing that. Is that possible or they have a system so that you to get your leaves less splitted over the year ?

Thanks.
Basing your decision on being able to commute is like playing Russian Roulette. Yes as an FO you can spread your leave and even get summer leave and all but there are no guarantees you'll get days off around it. I've seen very junior guys with really good rosters and senior ones with crap ones. There is no logic at times, especially when it comes to your days around leave. And what happens to the rosters when reqruitment stops like it has now? How long will the company give us the 3 or 4 additional days off like they have the past 4 months? How long before you upgrade and then it's a definite no-no not possible.

Save yourself a lot of stress and heache and forget about commuting with us. Have you looked at the EK 777 freighter package? That is kinda setup of commuting.

Any News on this guys? Has anyone noticed any changes for immediate family travel benefits?

Cheers

Nothing still. And with the posted loss I wouldn't count on much progress for the forseeable future.

It varies during leave etc but expect between 10500 and 11500 usd p/mnth nett. Any FO here that can verify this for me? If you scroll back a few pages you'll find a breakdown as well. Only the flightpay has gone up inbetween.

Question - for Captain rostering purposes, do newly upgraded (within FD) Captains slot in above DECs in the seniority list, or are the FOs and Captains list kept separate for rostering (ie new upgrades join the captains list at the bottom)?

Upgrading fo's get to keep their seniority, so they go above DEC'S seniority wise. Same for second officers/cadets.

Talent Pool

Hey Guys, I made through the assessment but I was put on the Talent Pool in July this year. I heard the ground training is predicted only after March 2019. I am a NTR F.O. This week they have started a group of S.O.s.
I also heard that they are short on TRI and one of the Runways in DXB will go under maintenance in April 2019.

Any information to share?
