Just A few facts
The A380 on average does 40 turns a month
The 777 on average does roughly 3600-4000 turns a month

The math speaks for itself. Unless they create a ‘short haul’ roster for those who would want to bid for it, you’ll get anywhere from 2-6 TAs a month regardless of bid priority

But thatís because the 777 is a much more flexible and capable aircraft. You should take the 40 Bus turns too. By the way I think that might be a slight underestimate but you can still have them all as without doubt the trip is better at them.

If you count a rest day as a day off, you are EXACTLY the kind of pilot they want.

It's not a day off. Period.

A couple of years ago the 777 roster was a lot better than the bus roster. At the moment the bus rosters are better. Don't count on it staying that way.

I wonder how a B777 or A380 roster at Korean compares to EK.....

Maybe someone from EK who jumped ship to KAL or vice versa can elaborate ??

A friend shows me his Korean roster regularly. 11 days off is very nice. The rest is just appalling, really horrible stuff.

When somebody says a month comprising 94hrs plus a sim 'works for me' then you know there is no hope of improvement.

works

mmmbop dubaigong

my friends, thread starter asked:
"any Ideas if the system is functioning or not .?!"

so, yes, I should have stated "functions for me".

for me, what'd really work would be quitting flying altogether, but we already discussed this in another thread not long ago....

have a nice day

Does May Rosterís Looks OK?!

So apart from the unintelligible English grammar and punctuation ( no wonder the management donít take us seriously )
Mid bid group this month and I only got trips that I bid for. Last 2 bottom bids had only one turm each month( 777). Working OK so far!
