I get spammed with contract jobs on LinkedIn all the time, idly picking through the latest KAL offering it seemed they've reduced the package from 10 days to 9 - is that correct?

Benefits
  • 11 consecutive days off at home each month (9 days off + 2 annual leave days) + an additional 2-3 travel days
I always thought it was 10 days (+2 annual leave days, + 2 travel days).

If that's the case I would think reducing your T & C by 10% isn't a great strategy to stoke interest lol.

Much better options in Vietnam these days in pay and roster, not to mention culture - if commuting's your thing.

Age requirements

Hi,

I was trying to apply to Korean and noticed that there is a minimum age requirement for captains.
CCL said captains must be over 40 years old while Rishworth said over 38.
Anyone has more information regarding this requirement? Is it company or aviation authority requirement? anyone knows if there is anyone below that age working for Korean as a captain?

as of today there is no recruitment on the 737. you can verify this with CCL

latest is the 787 and 777 will be common crewed if the chairman gets his wishes. (up to government approval)

it probably keeps out the midlife, career change FO’s that think they’re extremely clever and carry a chip on their shoulder. I imagine this is based on a long history of contract pilots, both good and bad. My previous airline had an unofficial policy similar to this as well as a reference for certain nationalities and an allergy to others. Before you shout or stereotype, my previous airline was african. The blacklisted nationalities were western in origin.
