Zero chance. Airbus experienced a prerequisite.

Well just found this on Emirates group careers webpage, among the faq's

Whilst past experience and candidate’s preference is taken into account, this will not always determine the fleet type as allocation is based solely on Emirates’ operational requirements.

Anyone heard if anyone's been getting into EK, EY or QR with less than the minimums?
I'm hearing rumours of people getting in absurdly below...

Nisbus. No one will send you a roster in case you publish or share it and then they will be sacked. But the rosters are EXACTLY as described. The last two posters sum it up beautifully. Happy New Year

Not forgetting that you can't have any extra days off before or after leave. Expect to get back from a trip the day before your leave starts (possibly late at night) and expect only one day off after leave.

Over a year since my escape, but the rosters are as previously discussed. If your lucky you'll get 9 days off on the 777, and maybe even see daylight at some point.

Hi there,
Im being flown over to Dubai for the 4 days of testing in February.
I was excited before I started reading these posts. Now I'm a bit concerned at having no life and being uphappy for 5 years.
I heard that Emirates pilots work hard, but I heard from someone, and so I want to confirm it on here, that they are trying to change that.
I was told that they are hiring like crazy at the moment because they intend to alliviate these awful rosters. Is there any truth to that?
