I really hope that EK gets rid of this 30ton rule (unofficial as it doesnt state this requirement on their website). I have more way more than the minimum time (4000total/2500jet) but because i dont have enough time on a 30ton aircraft i wont be invited for an interview.. I have receieved an email from EK stating as much..

What really irritates me though is some people complaining that they not getting interviews when they have less than half the total hours i do..

Did anyone of you contacted EK and offered them a possible date when you know you can get OFF or leave? Because i'll have the possibility to take some leave in APR.

UN614 is right...

UN614, I guess you're right. If they state that you can apply with 500 hours less than the minimum requirements that should fit you!
I'm also with 2100 jet and I was thinking to apply, but regarding your situation I guess I'll just wait a bit more...
Can you please keep in touch with me so I can learn more about your progress?

Thanks!

Hello

Wondering if I can re-apply to EK having failed the sim at the selection last July. I heard that there is a chance to re-apply after 6 months...

Does anybody have a phone number or email at EK I can contact to confirm this...

Kind Regards,

Hi Roy,

I believe the wait is 24 mouths before the will look at you again.
Even with the demand for pilots. Their not budging on that.

Try and email [email protected]

Cheers

On standby for EK PSP

Hello everyone. I had been confirmed for Madrid's PSP a couple of months ago but one week ago I received an email apologizing for having to leave me on standby due to the amount of CVs received lately from pilots flying "common cockpits" with EK. Does anyone have any idea on what happened?, I mean why would they confirm a date two months ago and now ten days before the tests put me in standby?. Has this happened to anybody else? I'm looking forward to fly for EK, I hope they give me a chance in following PSP.
I've read a few posts from people who seem to know what's cooking in EK, I hope someone can help!!

Hi bluesadditct,

What type are you flying? I ask you that because I wonder if they consider the A320 an "EK common cockpit".

bluesaddict, I have heard that happen to a few acquaintances of mine. Got invited and then put on standby...allegedly due to the high amount of CVs coming in from Spanair and Malev guys...

I'm gonna write this message as a new thread so maybe someone from Emirates can give some valuable info on the matter.

30 ton rule?

I did not see any requirement about that. I have more than 5500 total, all but about 2000 of that is jet. I have over 1500 Jet PIC (CRJ 200) and over 1700 hours of RJ 85 Avro FO time. Will I be competitive to get an interview?

okay so 5500 hours, 1500 pic jet (CRJ), 1700 (FO) over 90,000 pounds, former military officer, one black mark on my record of a minor misdemeanor. Got the rejection letter a week after applying. I was not expecting this. Should I reapply? They would not say why. ??????/

Recently passed all the exams in dubai including the medical successfully for EK. Got an email two weeks later said that they turned my application down finally. Anyone else had a same situation?
Wondering if the new DEC and Spanair and Malev crashes has made them rethink their intake of F/Os?

IF you passed your medical, then blame probably lies with one of your references

G'day to all!

This morning I have reviewed my application on the EK website. The status is now "shortlisted". As far as I know they will contact me now via telephone - is that right?

From your expierience: how long do you estimate the period to be until I might receive a call/email?

Thx and have a great weekend!

Got an email saying that I'm shortlisted two days after submitting my application. That was three months ago and still no call/email. The email said being shortlisted does not guarantee an interview. Guess it depends on many factors.
