Could you be a bit more specific? Where do you have this information from?

If anybody of you guys reading here has an upcoming course start (within the next two weeks) and feels curious about what is going on right now, I thought it might be a good idea to start a whatsapp group to exchange some info about it. PM if you're interested to join in.

Yep, today they are offering voluntary unpaid leave. It doesn't take a genius (or a pilot) to see what the next FCN will say.

Emirates and medication

I'm not sure if this is the right place to type this but I'm hoping that someone might be able to help answer my question. What I'd like to know is if Emirates would hire candidates that take medication. I would go into more detail of I could PM someone, I don't want to share a lot of information. What I can say is that in everyday life I am a very healthy, 'normal' person and the medication I take isn't for anything related to mental health - I've heard they're really against that. The condition I take medication for was diagnosed many years ago and I haven't had any problems (hospitalisation)with it since 2013 so I think the main problem for Emirates is that I still take medication.

Your timing sucks USERNAME - I hate to the be the bearer of bad news, maybe you have missed it, but there is a Pandemic going around, and I think your meds may be the least of the issues preventing you being hired by EK.

​​​​​​I'm not applying yet but Emirates are still taking cabin crew applications with recruiters doing online screening interviews until it's safe to hold Assessment Days again. They're still planning on hiring a lot of crew before Expo 2020 as they won't have enough crew for the expected amount of passenger numbers in 2021 (Expo will be postponed).

There seems to be some very naive people around that think things are going to bunch back 100% across the board. It's not going to happen . The world has changed . Good luck

They will be hiring thousands though, I don't know if you work for Emirates but I've heard this information from people within the company not spreading gossip but confirmed news about future recruitment. They need to balance out the number of resignations as well as expected increased passenger numbers for Expo 2020/2021. The reason I brought it up was that people are talking as if Emirates won't be hiring for years while they are still recruiting right now.

Sorry USERNAME - Would have helped in your initial post you said you were Cabin Crew, I mean this is a PILOTS forum. Either way though, I doubt they will be hiring ANYONE for some years to come. Good luck.

That's fine, you can think that but there are reliable sources saying they will be hiring cabin crew. Sorry for posting in a Pilots forum though haha, I saw cabin crew posts here before so I thought maybe it was okay.
