Smile Hello to all of you!!

I am new here!! I am very happy I became a member of this forum! I read forums a lot and I have to admit in some cases the more you read , so more confused you feel. I sent my online application form to emirates last week. They sent me an email that said the details of the open day here in Greece. However, i read in some forums that the purpose of online application is to go immediately in the assesment day and not to the open day. Is it true? I have to wait for another email for emirates or to simply go to open day?
P.S: my online application status says Under review
Please help me!!!!!!!

First of all stella this is a forum for pilots, here is the link for cabin crew. Cabin Crew Wannabes - PPRuNe Forums

As for your question, sometimes your online application invite is for assessment in which case you do not have to attend an open day. But since you say you applied for open day you will need to be called back in order to go to assessment day.

you also do not need an invite. In my opinion it is best not to apply, that way if you do not make it to the final interview you can attend another open day within 6 months as they will have no proof that you ever attended one and were in a waiting period. Good luck,I hear Greece always has hundreds of applicants.

Sounds realistic, but the guys who've been here any less than 2 years, will be waiting until > 2020 ... 7 years is a very optimistic number.

Again they said 7-10 years at the roadshow for the Boeing.

But for the A380 around 5 due to fleet expansion. Just what they said.

Many of us have been here 7 years plus, now on the 380, with no apparent upgrade in sight......

With regards to upgrade times... They seem to be promising fast track for some of the qualified applicants.... But what is a promise worth?

Fast track command is a thing of the past. New upgrades on the 777 are now circa 4yrs in the company. So there are plenty of eligible FOs.

... because once the upgrade is under the belt you are actually supposed to keep working down there for the unforseeable future. Knowing the odd person working- and having worked there, I believe it would be better to spend that time up here!

Application page

Hi everybody.

I'm trying to update my application in the EK website, but the page is not working.
The same with Etihad page.
Is there anybody with the same problem?

Don't think there is much chance of the Boeing interviews starting any time soon. The current people in the hold pool are likely to go up to if not over the one year limit. Word is first Boeing course in May '14.

If there are interviews and you get through, i'm told a 9-10 month wait in the pool has become the norm. So just prepare yourself to that.

Chin up.

This was brought up a long time ago but what is the procedure for having your FAA logbooks verified? The FAA will not stamp them anymore, and going back to a long list of former employers, some defunct, is not an option.

Hi Dayseemal,

Interview has resumed for Boeing because I got one last week. Slated for early 2014. Looks like things are back in track from my inside source.....
