Flight deck positions at FlyDubai Master Thread - Merged

Just heard about aircrafts orders from Fludubai: about 54 Boeing planes.
Any idea about the type (B737NG?!) and pilots requirements?
Thks.

FLUDUBAI , the new low cost carrier in exciting Dubai is seeking healthy Flight Deck Crew and Cabin Crew , with strong immune systems to tackle the daily stresses that this exciting new position offers. Crew Members with current Vaccination certificates will be given preference. We are also seeking Qualified Doctors and Nurses to help passengers and staff in this infectious enviroment.

It is quite surprising that flydubai choosed to purchase 737 planes while others low cost concurrents have choosen the 320 ( air arabia , jazeera...)

FlyDubai colours

I'm loving the livery! Clean, fresh, & simple - doesn't seem to be any Arabic on the body. I'm not a fan of mix 'n matching languages.



alpha-b, are you able to change the spelling of 'FluDubai' on the thread title? otherwise it'll make it hard for people doing searches.

Think you'll find that 73NG has much lower maintenance costs compared to the A-320 series. The latter has better fuel burns of course, but maybe the price of fuel is not relevant to the Dubai government.

Paint scheme does look good. Is the base going to be the current DXB or the new airport?

heard as a fact that the current DXB airport will become a Shopping Mall or something similar when the new airport will start running...

Heard a rumour that recent interview candidates for EK were told that the successful ones would be joining either EK or FlyDubai. Also something about upgrades being on FlyDubai only. Can anyone confirm that?

The official line here is still that Fly Dubai will be a completely seperate entity. But who knows how it will work out in the end? I expect the crews will be the last people to find out.

He didn't say he didn't like Arabic. He said he wasn't a fan of mix 'n' matching languages.

Your profile says you're six years old. I believe you. So, back to the trees for you, chimp!

MONKEYFACE,

If you're not a complete idiot, then you probably fooled most readers into believing that's the case I'd think following your world-class record-beating effort at simulating one with your post of the following bit of xenophobic racist nonsense:
