Hello friends,
I am from a flag carrier in Middle East and decided to join EK.
Currently holding 1000hrs A320, 600 hrs A330 of flight time. (plus a little TP)
I have read all the downsides (and trust me I know there's a lot) of coming to dubai and joining EK. However, I made my mind to come there and join, if possible, as it fits my goals in the bigger picture


​​​​Any advice on how to do this? What to study before coming? What aspects I should consider about the company or the country? What could give me an edge for hiring?

I want to make this happen, need advice.
Thanks

Hey all,
Does anyone know what "administrative" checks are conducted after you have passed the interview process?

I got through the interview and at the end got a 'congratulations, we just need to go through our checks and you should get the official letter withing 4 weeks' only to get an call 2 weeks later that I was unsuccessful with no additional information given. I don't have any negative records or history anywhere that I know of so I have no idea what it could be and it didn't get as far as contacting my referees.

Interestingly there were only 2 of us who got this far and the other guy got the same call on the same day.

Cheers

Hi guys,

Could someone who has been through the selection process recently please send me a PM, I would like to ask a fairly specific question regarding selection.

Thanks in advance!

Provided you meet the requirements and make it through the recruitment process you can. I would say minimum 3 months for the selection and then 3 months notice period but it all depends whether you are the flavor they are looking for this month.

Heard that some assessments have been cancelled, seems they may have found enough crew.

Thanks, yes after all it's what they are looking for on the day, not just prior flying experience.

Fawaz,

If you spend some time reading through all of the posts on the LPJ forum starting at the beginning then you should be able to collate around 80 questions based on feedback from recent assessments. The "Day 1 tech questions" pdf provided by LPJ is also an accurate reflection of the exam but you will need to check and confirm the accuracy of the answers for yourself as part of your preparation.

The exam is easy and I would suggest devoting a greater proportion of your study time to preparing for the simulator assessment, behavioural interview and maths test.

Cheers.

Recruitment Stop ?

Hey guys,

heard rumours about a recruitment stop. Does anyone know something about it ? I’ve had my assessment some weeks ago and I’m still waiting for a reply. (Boeing)

It looks like recruitment will predominately be for the A380 until crew start getting trained for the 77X but it would not surprise me if they pause 777 recruitment for a brief period. We were notified a few days ago that there will be no command courses on the 777 from March till July but they could extend this time period. Apologies if it has been explained beforehand but until the 77X arrives, the current 777 fleet will shrink slightly, as some older aircraft are removed from the fleet. This slight shrinkage in fleet size along with a lower level of attrition, means we have in every practical sense, a crew surplus on the 777. Further delays to the 77X entry into service, will only result in this surplus getting larger, providing there is not a marked increase in attrition and/or those aircraft that are due to leave the fleet soon, are retained for longer.

Anyone with a bit of spare time and willing to lend a helping hand inside EK shoot me a personal message. I am considering applying as an FO and any help is much appreciated.

You guys who've recently joined. What accommodation did you get? Rumours are going that the Meydan Villas (Heights and South) now are full and people are being given apartments again and even that the accommodation allowance is due to be put back on the table again. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Recently been given Le Meridien Villas, although being shown Meydan South at the assessment and that ‘certainly’ we’d be staying there. Go figure

Meydan Heights/South are definitely NOT full. South alone would have 2-300 villas empty, they just opened the last section a week ago. From friends in Heights they have said there’s empty ones over there as well.

I don’t think the accommodation allowance for renting is ever coming back.
The only way you can get it is to buy or be forced to move from company accommodation (eg an apartment) and then have it offered.

May I ask if you opted for the furnished or unfurnished option?

Latest rumor is no pilot has actually been given apartment in the last 3-4 months as they don't have any available and even single FO's who should only be entitled to a 2 bed apartment are being forced into a villa. How allocation is done is anybody's guess though and even people requesting MH/MS are being given a Jumeirah villa and told to apply via the normal process for internal moves. Also they have apparently stopped "agreed" take over of villas of someone leaving. Plus don't forget that what they show you during the tour is just an example of the accommodation and any "guarantee" you might get is only that they will put the request in but don't expect them to consider it if it doesn't suit them on the day.

In the long run any villa in jumeria is better than MS/MH , avoid the EK social experiment!
