Can anyone advise which destinations the flight crew overnight? Or is it still predominantly out and back?

Anyone know if the pool still exists or has anyone had offers withdrawn etc. Due to Covid19?
Any update would be helpful

A total of 23 destinations are now a layover. That includes 1 seasonal one (Zagreb) and 4 flightdeck only layovers. The night deadheads got replaced by layovers. (flt deck only) Day time deadheads still as before. (before COVID-19 data)

So basically 1 out of every 4 destinations is a layover.

There are a heap of type rated pilots dumped on the market who are looking for a new home. When flydubai eventually get their Maxs they may not have to look too hard to crew them.

Hi guys. Reading through this thread I'm aware there may be quite a few of you that have done the video interview recently. Any help on what may come up would be greatly appreciated. I know everything is on pause at the moment, but still trying to be prepared!

No news for me,
I was supposed to be on interview on April.
Be patient they will call us back.

Guys how are Flydubai weathering the storm? Any talk of redundancies like everywhere else? It seems Flydubai and Emirates have managed to keep their sh#t together better than other places. But I could be wrong....

Emirates has just started the layoffs. Pilots under training and probation so far. Letter sent today.

There are rumours floating around the sandpit that more layoffs are to come, but all unsubstantiated for now... letís hope what we saw are the last ones..

That's pretty bad because these guys will have resigned from previous jobs to take Emirates. Now Emirates put them on the street. A better solution could have been found.

I guess everyone who changes airline to improve lifestyle and career path is aware of risks, especially while on probation. The best solution is to dismiss training/probation and keep pilots who showed loyalty and were part of team for years...

The new hires may still qualify for unemployment benefits in their home country, which may well not be the case for longer term expats. It may not be a lot but health insurance and a basic income may be very welcome until things look up. The least bad solution is probably job-sharing, that way the airline gets to keep qualified and experienced crew and the individual pilots get some time away from the sandpit.
