Hi guys, according to one of my friends working there on B777 , this is now the real situation in THY for expat:

Gearlever, nothing strange, all B737, A320, A330 expats pilots are on unpaid leave until end of may 2021. Only the B777 riders have got the right to keep on flying during winter and spring time... so far...
But conditions drastically changed in terms of salaries and contract: just focus on that one: salaries are still paid in TL ( local currency which has been devaluated by 500% in 6 years now 1USD is nearly 10 TL) and the average salary for a B777 captain is
40000tl when he flies... the previous contract was giving free hotel to expat or at least some housing allowance : all gone.

It means that long haul captain is finishing his month roughly with 3500 euros in THY after having paid his apart fees. I dont even mention here the case of first officers...

These are simply facts in THY about expat life.

Iím not sure how you came up with those numbers.

5-6 year ago, 1 USD ~ 3.8 Lira

the current rate I 1 US - 8.4 Lira

yes, it has depreciated about 120%, not 500 as you claimed.

....economically the country is in bad shape , but letís not exaggerate

Not quite.

In 2010 the lira was around 2.2 to the £
currently its around 11.5 . Thats a depreciation
of , well 500% .

depends on your starting point of reference.
Anyone whos been there for coming on 10 years knows the score. The lira sucks, has little value and the salaries are hopelessly inadequate.

I do hear rumours they are going to open up B777 recruitment though. Apparently they are very busy on this fleet, and hope to take on a few ex ME B777 trainers.

How is that even possible if all the foreigners are currently on unpaid leave?

Approximately 16000 TL for narrow body F/O. Add max 3000-4000 TL for wide body. After January, there will be another 25% cut for pilots from THY Academy.

Regarding B777 rec.; if happens, 99.9% will be from internal sources. Tons of narrow body captain/fo fly around max 10 duty days per a month.

Dear Zymian,

On January 01, 2015 the Official USD to TRY Exchange Rate:Close: 1 USD = 2.3331 TRY

Best: 1 USD = 2.3331 TRY

Worst: 1 USD = 2.3331 TRY

Yet you are rignt it is now 1 euro = 10 tl and not 1 usd.

I was partially right.
