[QUOTE=Pilot12345678;10298431]
. Really feel depressed after reading the whole discussion . Since 2016 and now end of 2018 only bad things about EK. I just made my mind and applied in EK a couple of days back .

You really feel depressed about Emirates but you applied anyway? Wait until you get hired and see how depressed you become. 6000 miles from home, 3rd world culture, busting your ass at 100 hours a month and your money struggling to keep up.
Why donít you get on with a US Major? They are far better in terms of.....EVERYTHING! Pay, days off, contract, insurance and even upgrades. You might have to wait 4-5 yrs there as opposed to here at 7-9 yrs.
When you get hired here and you will get hired you will Long to be at a Major.

Emirates issues

I applied because emirates looks amazing as a company . I used to hear that people got the upgrade in 3-4yrs , which professionally is supposed to be a big jump But I exactly couldnít make out the problem with it till now ...I mean itís the 100 hrs that bothers everyone ? In us major you know , one has to start from the lowest levels (regional ) which is a very difficult life and then slowly move up , no doubt after years you will be in a better shape but itís the best for a guy who just starts his career rather than someone like me who already done so many hours and is almost 40yrs

Yes by all means come to Emirates and come quickly. We need you and you’re just the person the airline is looking for.
To be blunt you don’t sound like an American but you could have received the numerous Green Cards the government is handing out.
If you have plenty of hours already like you claim you don’t have to start at the Regionals. You can go straight to Delta or AA and upgrade in 3-5 yrs but Emirates is an amazing company. Come and experience it for yourself.

Itís not for lack of trying.
Whatís more embarrassing is pilots staying here telling themselves and others that everything is great when any clear headed person knows how bad it is.

Well now I am just confused . You keep telling everyone that they need to just get a green card and they will be picked up by Delta etc, but you have been trying for ages and can't get a job? So your advice seems to be a bit off doesn't it? Misleading even. Good news is those traits should see you right for a management job with EK . See all is not lost.

Funny how some "assume" it a given to get on at the US majors. Know many that tried and failed , good guys as well . Maybe you need to be more nerdy

Iím confused Don. I see the bad and knowing I canít fix the rot I try to leave for a better life. You know Emirates is bad for you and yet you stay and disparage pilots trying to leave.
I will get hired by a Major. When? I donít know but itís a simple numbers game. The US Majors need around 20,000 pilots in the next 10 yrs and only 12,000 or so pilots have applied. Hopefully Iíll get hired sooner than later. We all know what Emirates does to us.

Even knowing Fliion probably doesn't have an app in with one of your majors, I will still buy in on this bet.

Yes you will be assigned a villa, but you can request an apartment if you want.

They are usually Millennium Towers (on SZR) or somewhere in TECOM I believe.

Is there an airline anywhere that grounds divorced pilots? EK would have half the fleet grounded.

Numbers getting divorced would probably skyrocket if we could get some downtime out of it!

'Sorry darling, I hate to do this but this is the only way to get that leave that I bid for and never got'

oh all of you guys are really funny but i dont have a funny situation for me going on.
My airline has shut down i am without a job for 6 months and my emirates assessment is coming up.
My math is really weak anyways i am separated with my spouse she is demanding divorce and walked
out on me the day i lost my job , a true narcissist .

Anyways i dont think many of you understand my situation but my question is should i just say i am happily married to avoid the details or
tell them i am separated ? I know in the panel interview they ask about family. I have zero kids.

They have very polite and relax attitude at panel interview. ı recommend you to be honest and just tell them you had a divorce. It is all in life. It may happen to any of us any day. ı dont see anything wrong in that. When they ask you the reason, you can say that it just did not work out and you decided it was best for two of you to seperate your paths.

And about the maths, do not worry at all. Questions are very simple such as 499994 - 388883 = ? There are more samples available on internet if you search. You only use pencil and paper for math. You will have enough time.
