Tecom in Barsha Heights, Manazel Al Barsha or Millenium. These are assuming you’re single.

So just to confirm; all courses are full up until June 2019 for new joiners? Seems the single runway and lack of expansion will further slow things down

Wait til they start with new hires single FO's sharing apartments. Cost cutting is going deeper!

Your questions should be.. Can I actually sustain flying back of the clock, long haul for a 100 hours a month, on minimum days off, and will I ever see my family, regardless of where they live?

1) You don’t seriously want to be flying that in EK. The back of the clock flying and time away from the family will either wreck your marriage, kill you or both. Dubai is VERY expensive, think London, New York levels, nothing like Panama, so your salary maybe higher but you will spend it especially with a family.

2) 9-12

3) Company accommodation, not nessessarly Median but company (all the same ultimately) unless you decide to buy. That is risky in the short term for sure, long term who knows.

With no disrespect intended, (especially since you are obviously using English as a second language), you will need to improve it to get into EK if you do choose to come this way.

Anyone else in the short list pool or have been? And if so, how long until you were invited for an assessment?
