No Macca, this maybe hard to believe, but it is an even bigger bullsh!tter than Rumsfeld!

Has FlyDubai changed their hours requirements for FO applications? I am sure it was 1500 hours total but now I've just been on the website and it says 2500 hours.
Strange....the NearMiss with Air Arabia last week the F/O had 470 total time.
Is it true FlyDubai is getting B777?

B737 type rated first officers
  • B737-300 to 900 (NG/EFIS) endorsed within the last 24 months.
  • At least 1,500 hours total flying time.
  • At least 500 hours on B737-300 to 900 (NG/EFIS) type aircraft.
Non-B737 type rated first officers

First Officers – must have 2,500 hours total flying time, of which 1,000 hours must have been gained on modern (EFIS) multi-crew, multi-engine aircraft over 10 tonnes operating weight (preference will be given to those with PIC time).

Bit of thread drift but we were all a bit surprised to be clearing you guys in 123 to Alepo today, there can't be many riskier place to fly into at the moment. Do you get extra danger money for flying into active war zones?

Tower Ranger, technically Syria is not a war zone and neither is Afghanistan. That is of course, according to our safety dept.

Just lots of naughty boys pointing guns at one another and not meaning actually hit anything. Duck and dive ladies!

On the bright side!

Flydubai is a wonderful establishment, this is of course if you have a highly evolved sense of humour, a penchant for cynicism and a liking for horse****.

Fortunately, I have all three. However, the dung from my well bred steeds I think smells a little sweeter.

Finally!

Almost done with my 3 years in FZ and I was hoping on staying but noooo way. Things are really bad here and I would never recommend anyone to join unless you have no other option. Still operating into Syria and claiming its safe!!! A civilian airline that sends out a Rocket Alert Response guide!!!
Just really disapointed on this lot and see no future here anymore

Good luck

It's astonishing isn't it?

I read the latest 'safety' brief regarding Syria and fell off my chair laughing. The news was on at the time and reporting a very different situation.

However, it does make me wonder why our Chief Commercial Officer was sent in to review Aleppo and not the 'safety' team. No wonder he found that the biggest concern was baggage congestion due to lack of staff......

Maybe they are staying at home and taking shelter

Wonder if we will ever get a 'security' update on Kabul or Khandahar

Why so long.....

Why does it take so long for a simple response from flydubai......applied months ago and now I have an offer next door and since no response from them I just can't weight the two options....

Oh well

Best of luck guys!

Wrt: Early payment of salary

mave292, forsooth, do you not read the emails emanating from HR? ... such as this one sent on 9th August 2012 @ 10:09:

Eid Al-Fitr (End of Ramadan) is expected to be on 18th or 19th August 2012.

It is generally expected that the flydubai office in Dubai will be closed for 2 days on Sunday 19th & Monday 20th August .
Please plan your work and personal schedules accordingly. Employees working on shifts/rosters will continue with their regular schedules.

In additionally, as a one off gesture, we will be processing this month’s payroll before the Eid holiday to ensure you receive your salary in time to enjoy the festivities.

When I saw the text message from the bank I just assumed it was my end of service benefit and they must have forgotten to inform me that my services were no longer needed. Hahahahaha!

Happy EID!
