Avia here is a tip.

On the EK Pilot recruitment page there is a picture of a girl, an FO. She became a Captain, took part in an advertising campaign explaining how she was a "girly girl"

Then she left..and went back home.

Ask them a couple of questions like....

If I am the augumenting crew and the operating crew makes a mistake..will I be sacked?

Will the "Contract" you send me, will the conditions contained within, remain the same during my entire time of employment?

In case I am involved in a incident, can I expect a fair hearing...


Just a few tips for you...

@SOPS sounds like you are have a bond with them and you can't leave.
Hope you have done a bit more research for the interview.

Jake, my friend, let me put you out of your misery,

I have 22500 hours, almost 6700 of them in Command of a EK 777.

I left almost 3 years ago..went home and never looked back

You need to get a grip....

Don't loose your time SOPS ,

We know what kind of guy Jake is ( if is a real pilot looking to join EK ) , they don't want to listen to what people at EK or ex EK have to say...
He knows better , let him do his own experience and let's see what will come out of it ( not after 2 months but a few years )
He reminds me when I was was a teenager and knew better than my parents , I know for sure now that they were right...

Good luck Jake and enjoy...

Jake, you are right. There is a lot of negativity here. Have you stopped to wonder why that might be?

Thumbs up EK - Direct Entry Command

Hi Guys and Gals,
Could anyone enlighten on current DEC requirements, factual with EK for the year ahead. How hard is it to, currently get in?
Is there any relaxation on the wide body requirement ie someone with 15 years left seat A320 series and past Boeing 737 time?

1000 hours wide body within the last 12 months Habibi, otherwise every FZ captain would be going there after a couple years in the left over the road.

I have no idea what the policy is right now but up until quite recently we were recruiting DEC's from RyanAir who had flown nothing bigger than 737.

Jedi, have a good look around the threads on this forum. I'm not EK myself but it scared me off ever even thinking of applying.

That is, actually, very good advice.

In response to Jake24 and EK expansion, if EK are expanding why did they halt all Cabin Crew recruitment 12 months ago and and now don't plan to recruit CC until Jan 2019? 2 years without a single new FA. That ain't expansion.
