Have just read an MOU with EY has been signed. Hoping this is somehow good for both pilot groups .

at the moment it's for training facilities , i think they will be sending 78 lads to do their sim in AUH,
it's normal, most unorganized unplanned airline i have ever seen in my life !

@allatp It's normal mate, they think you will be available as soon as they get back to you, like there is no other jobs than GF!

I thought UAE and Bahrain were not pals anymore (?). Indeed, I was told that in Bahrain, it was an offence to imply anything nice about Bahrain's neighbours (?). Cripes, and Donnie having huge troubles building his wall. Live & let live, although, sometimes in secret eh ?

With 6 78s on roster and the huge pilots shortage they have , there is no clear picture about the 330s future !!
They need to top up their packages to attract pilots, new seasonal destinations SLL and AGP, not sure how they will cope with that!

Well, I personally know two pilots who applied to Gulf Air more than 1 year ago as DEC A320. One received an email saying he was shortlisted. Than silence. It was 4 months ago. The other one, that is also TRI/TRE on the A320, never heard a word from them. Strange way to attract qualified pilots...

yah light load in the flight deck....GF's problem is they don't seem to have a properly professionally manned recruiting dept, more like a bunch of local secretaries who spend the day in the office on their phones...if they even bother to show up, they don't market the airlines to prospects...GF may not have the biggest planes or the most routes, but there are other attributes that make GF very attractive, Bahrain lifestyle vs the other two places is a BIG one..they that need to be marketed to prospects...the office just doesn't have a clue, sad really
