Thanks, I did look at that already, so that is accurate? No mention of housing allowance of company accommodation then..I'd be bringing my family so was hoping they'd offer a similar deal to EK.

What's the difference between the A and B scale I've read on here about?

Thanks

Dubaigong,

Very happy for you!

No need for us to worry anymore........

Surely this is actually more the case of something foolish that has not been introduced, rather than a good thing that has happened?

With this type of positive spin you should consider a job in management, your talents are wasted on here.

Comment to Dubaigoing

I see you chose not to answer the comment from another poster on you not calling the newly upgraded not professional. You are quick to point out other peoples errors, but not so quick to admit your own. Weak quality in a commander! Also, there is NOTHING in our manuals guiding us in the use of the AVBL days, so if this is "up to crewing" it will in effect turn into a 24 hour stby. Even if you dont call it such. My available was changed much less that 48 hours before by the way.

Dear StuckinFZ and Tolerant Dubai ,

I flew today with a captain who told me that he decided to join Flydubai because all the pilots he knew in the company told him that it was a good company to join despite the fact that is was not perfect...
So I am sure that you will find something to say against that like " you should join the management" etc...
But I had a great day flying with a happy captain who will try to convince some of his friend to join...
I am sure you will like to hear that...

Cheers mate

Great news!

Between you two, you may just have sorted out the company's recruitment problems!

Great job.

"Every night at home at Flydubai will not be true anymore ... , from October we are starting lay over at Dhaka and Chittagong
Who knows what will be next..."


This is what you wrote on another thread.....Now if I had wrote that, you would have burst into tears

You will never make me burst in tears , you always make me laugh...

And about what I wrote in another thread , this just a fact that I have pointed out to somebody thinking about joining EK or FZ saying that in Flydubai he will not be home anymore every night because another poster said that he will be...
So , as you can see ( despite the fact that you see me as a management fan ) I try to always give the correct information to avoid having people joining the company without knowing how it really is.

At the end of the day what is important is that you enjoy your life...and that I enjoy mine...

Bomb and Mosquito repellent.......

To all of those that think of joining FZ...... Get a Bomb- (Kandahar, Duck and Dive......) and Mosquito Repellent (Dhaka and Chittagong)- spray before joining......

What glorious layovers.... Can't wait......

Again you will not answer direct challenge dubaigoing.....

As for you SCREAM of NO bonding for command upgrades, according to CP letter as of yesterday nothing is decided, so stop throwing lies around, you can not know if there will be a bond or not. Unless you are already management, or in cohorts with someone upstairs leaking you information in return from you ratting out colleagues of course...............

SELECTION FOR FLYDUBAI

Hello Gentlemen,
I have applied in FlyDubai as non-type-rated non-jet F/O and so far I have just received an automatic reply. Does someone has any idea about how much chance my application can lead to be called for assessment in regards to the requirements and the current needs. Also could someone give info regarding the CTC assessment in UK and final stage in Dubai?

I would highly appreciate any answer-you can PM me too.
Thanks for your lights!

another day in the corp boys

It gets better... look forward to more DFS afghan routes, esp when the troups pull out. Fending off malaria during the bangladesh layovers may be the safer option.

GA,

Don't forget AIMS is your friend because if you don't want your nightstops then there will be plenty of pilots who will.

A few queries on FlyDubai if anyone can assist.
Remuneration :
Is there any kind of annual increment?
Do you lose out on all the Flying allowance when on annual leave or is there a minimum paid?
Accommodation:
Is the housing allowance paid in full no matter what your actual rent is? Or paid against an invoice from the landlord?
Is living in Sharjah convenient? And how is the standard and rents compared to DXB?
Technical:
Is FZ a CAT II or CAT III airline? Are the aircrafts HUD equipped ?
Are the Engines 24, 26 or 27K?
Thanks for your help.

Answer.

No annual increment, small pay-rise last year, but this will not benefit new hires. Airline have commented that a new pay-rise will only come once airline is profitable.

Flight pay is BLOCK hours, and only paid when you fly, no flight no flightpay.
Housing is paid in full no matter where and how you live. Sharjah is cheaper but nicer areas in Dubai cost just a little more. Look in Downtown, Business Bay and Mirdif. Dubizzle.com is a good place to look to get an idea.

Airline is trying to get CAT II, HUD, still pending approval, training have started.
Aircraft is mixed 26 and 27K.

It has been ages since I have been on here. Anyways, for Sinbad

A few queries on FlyDubai if anyone can assist.
Remuneration :
Is there any kind of annual increment? NO, Not at this time
Do you lose out on all the Flying allowance when on annual leave or is there a minimum paid? You will loose out on all your Flying allowance while on Leave. Gone the whole month 0 Flight pay.
Accommodation:
Is the housing allowance paid in full no matter what your actual rent is? Or paid against an invoice from the landlord? You get your full allowance, so live as good as you want or as frugal.
Is living in Sharjah convenient? And how is the standard and rents compared to DXB? From what I know the rent is cheaper but the standard of living is below Dubai. Most that live in Sharjah come to Dubai for entertainment.
Technical:
Is FZ a CAT II or CAT III airline? Are the aircrafts HUD equipped ?
Are the Engines 24, 26 or 27K? 26k & 27K engines, HUD Equipped, but not Cat II or III yet but it is coming.
Thanks for your help.

Gents, fly2AK, torallin

Would you mind to confirm on the following:
How much is the fix income, without any extras, just net cash?

I just come across the "projected monthly total". Need to know the individual numbers. On what kind of productivity is "approximately AED51800 per month" based on?
What is the relation bw. fixed and duty pay? How much housing allowance will be given?

Thanks for lightning me up on this!

PS: What kind of deals are offered to trainers, if any?

No offence Saint-Exupery, but 95% of the stuff you've just asked is stated on the FlyDubai wesbite and has also been stated in a post above.

You get your basic money. You get the car allowance. You get the housing allowance. EVERY MONTH. RAIN OR SHINE. Only the flight pay is the variable.

It's ALL on the FD website.

screening

Is there a chance the screening process be done in DXB instead of in CTC UK?.. They gave me dates to choose but it's in UK, a little bit too far and time / consuming...

Heard rumours FZ will fly to KUL via CMB...any truth?

BritishGuy,

thank you for answering. I just visited FD website again, but I can't find the answers to my q's.

I just wonder how much the basic pay would be, assuming that the 51800 is the overall total incl. basically everything.

Could you eventually break it up into basic salary, flight pay, housing etc.?

Alternatively, pls post the link to those info.

(Can't find all of this on Pilots - work with us - flydubai)

PS: Seen the article about the latest gunfight in KBL on CNN.... not the most welcoming destination!

Afghan flights

British Guy,

Theres a trend developing over there. It appears KBL is more out of control than KDH.

Do you know if all the flights operated ?
