Productivity pay

Sorry if this was already covered in previous posts.. can anyone elaborate on "productivity pay scenarios"? I am looking at EK's website which states MONTHLY BASIC SALARY + AVERAGE FLYING PAY (PLUS PRODUCTIVITY PAY SCENARIOS) for FOs and CNs (sorry can't paste a link since i am new to forum duh), and wonder what amount of hours is FO's 30,125 AED salary is based on? Also, what number of guaranteed hours included in basic salary?

[QUOTE]Iím just wondering whether the new joining experienced FOs ( on enhanced package ) are put in regular seniority or not ?/QUOTE]

To be honest with you the seniority list is a bit of a myth. It was withdrawn from publication a year or two ago ostensibly because it contained "Commercially Sensitive Information" By that you can read EK speak for the attrition rate being way in excess of what we say it is and we don't want you telling anyone. Unless you have a significant amount of spare time and are a bit of a whizz with HTML and spreadsheets you will never know precisely where you are on the seniority list. For staff travel on-load priority date of joining is all that counts.

The productivity pay is that which is paid per hour anything over your monthly threshold.

The threshold is 88hr per month reducing by 3 hours per day for any month less than 31.

Unofficially it seems Most Bus pilots 95hrs, Boeing 90-92.

Bus more days off due ULRs and no TAs

The rate per hour effective 1/1/16 is 635 Capt, 450 Fo.

Flying pay is paid for every hour flown and is 75/55 cap/fo

The Co has become crafty in recent pay reviews by increasing the flying pay percentages and by default claiming package increases - however none of the above gets added to the calculation of percentage of salary money to Prov fund. as it is not salary

The fact that the Co does not publish this info to interested parties - gives you an idea of the type of transparency, integrity and professionalism of the HR machine.

Be very careful before making the jump into the pit

I haven't been able to find it but can someone provide a list of the various apartment bock names that one could expect to be housed in if joining the company as a single FO? It would be nice to see where they are all located on Google Maps.

Why bother? You can't choose where you live in company housing. My advice is take the allowance and live wherever you want. Business bay and marina are good places to start.

The allowance is paid as part of your salary and is not connected to any rent or mortgage amount. You can choose to have it paid monthly or as an advance in 6 month lump sums.

Currently, as a new joiner you can take the allowance to rent or pay a mortgage. If already an employee in company accommodation, you have to purchase a property to get the allowance.

All of the above is subject to change with no notice. As is the case with just about everything around here.

I was recently there in dubai for the assessment. I didnt pass the panel interview. Everything else was ok. Only 1 of the 8 passed and from the previous group aswell. A lot of people fail at the 568 psychology questionairy aswell because the system can not generate a profile on the answers they submitted.

It is not true what some people say here that they accept everything and everyone. Their standards remain high!

Is it just me or has EK revised their recruitment requirements for DEC? Narrow-body captains can now apply with a TT of 7K hours with 3K PIC

Can anyone elaborate what is covered by basic salary and what extra payments one can expect/ is entitled to? Does EK still pay for deadheading and standby but does not pay for sim (that's what i gathered from old forum discussions..)?

1 month for a failed sim. Auto thrust and FDs now available to allow for those that can't do it by themselves. A video of the Sim event will be emailed, along with a list of common errors.
As someone said, the standard is almost still high.

Hourly pay and productivity pay is calculated based on scheduled block hours. Deadheading counts towards this but standby and your own simulator sessions do not. If however you are rostered to 'fill' a seat on a sim support duty, then that will accrue hourly pay.

The vast majority of deadheading is linked to freighter trips on the 777. If you are not freighter qualified or on the 380, then expect to deadhead once in a blue moon.

your own simulator sessions do not
Your simulator sessions do attract flight pay now, but don't count to productivity. Have done for 2 years now
