Someone came to work on the 22 April and hit the wrong button (EGIT) . EK pilots still worried about further cuts . Problem with layoffs ie re patriating . Huge cost and some what permanent. Same would apply to other ME carriers. Think it was @2008 TC said 50 pilots surplus but no layoffs , this could be different. To all the wannabes, it's a perfect storm! Good luck !

Be sensible, the world and aviation is in a calamitous situation.

Do you really think in all seriousness that EK is recruiting. They have no real clear picture as to how they will protect their existing pilots or crew. To really believe that there are opportunities is deluded. Any advertisements will have already been pre-booked and paid for. Therefore cannot be cancelled. Believe me when I say that my friends in recruitment have not been near the office in weeks and there are no opportunities.

This is all about protecting the people that they have.

The problem with forums like this is, is that many that post have no real idea and can post incendiary rumours without recourse and give others hope. EK are trying to protect what they have, but they have limited visibility as to how this scenario will play out, therefore recruiting is at a COMPLETE standstill. This is a company in full protection mode. Whilst I am sure there are many candidates who would now love to join us, it is simply not going to happen in the near term.

The world is a very different place now.

Those that were given course dates in June /July have been advised no hiring for this year or 12 months , can't remember, and to " re apply " . The goal posts have changed WRT available experience. Next year we will be back to 10000 FO's , similar to post 911

Gíday Airbubba, upon reflection, this morning, I decided that nowadays is not the time to have a poke at fellow aviators. Sorry.

oh and yes I am an ozmate, and a skipper. Stay safe out there.

Quick question not to steer the thread off in the wrong direction, but during operations with 3 pilots at EK, say 1x CA and 2x FO, do the FOís log the entire duration of the flight as SIC? Thanks!

10000 FOís ? Is that correct, you meant ten thousand. How many aircraft and types do you have over there and what are your pilot numbers ?
