Can any 320 FO give me an idea as to what kind of schedule one can expect? PM would be great. I don't need an actual schedule, just an idea of days off, kind of flights, etc. Can you put say 3-5 days off at a time, etc.

Thank you.

See the A320 capt roster thread and you'll get an idea of what it's like on that fleet for both FO and Capt. It is possible to get a string of days off but purely down to how you bid and luck with rostering.....nothing is guaranteed. You may only see it once every 3-4 months otherwise it's standard 2 days off and back to work.

Days off

Odguy there is very little chance of getting more then 3 days off in a row. I have a friend who is a F/O on the 320, he bids for days off and the best he has had in 3 years has been 3 days in a row one time. If you are on the 320 you will be working or sleeping.

I am on the 777 and my roster is a joke, it is one of the worst things with QR. It seems the company will do their best to keep your days off to a minimum in a row. They know that's what you want so you can get out of lovely Doha so they always try to give you 2 days max.

But they guys on the 320 have it a lot worse then me.

If you're in your 20s, single, and this is your first jet job I'm sure you will enjoy it. But if you have a family and enjoy spending time with them you might not.

What is the bond repayment schedule for a type rated guy?

I am typed on the B777, so what are the chances of getting the 777 as a new hire FO?

What is the SFO position and how does one reach it?

Thanks.

Senior First Officer:

One will be eligible 3 years after line check with ATPL and pass the review board. Don't ask me what they review at the board, cuz I just don't know. The only benefit is that your basic salary increase to QAR 24,200 a little bit higher than the fifth step as F/O (Fifth years in the same position)

Why do you not apply to Etihad or Emirates ?

Thanks for the response...not really a factor for a new hire I guess. Not sure why the pay scale i saw had an SFO scale starting at year one.

BlackPudding: I did apply to Emirates and have been short listed, just checking out all the options. With Etihad I am short on time in type requirement of 500 B777 time.

I suggest you pick the telephone up and call Etihad and explain and ask to speak to someone.

Aerodmb,

Not sure if you are interested in it, but if you are not called for a few months and you are not picked up by EK or EY, perhaps you could get an early 787 FO slot with your 777 experience... It is a possibility with the first few 787s arriving in the summer.

That said, EK is probably the better deal in the ME and they have plenty of 777s for you. I am sure it would be difficult to leave the 777 after flying it, even for something like this:

Good luck!

Ummmmmm, I think you might be surprised to find that they aren't paying the most, unless of course they are earning US$15-20,000 per month, cash! Not including allowances.

777 Skipper,

Take home 15000
Housing & schooling extra.....

Not too bad..
Indeed, not bad. However, not a guaranteed monthly sum; take some leave and you will soon see a dent in take home pay.

By way of contrast, Saudia advertised recently in Flight for 777 Capts. Now, THAT is what a pay package should look like
