Yep, why would any professional Pilot want to apply for a position in the Middle East with any of these UAE airlines ever again, after seeing how they have treated expats in recent months, you would have to be crazy. Greedy, secretive, racists who make up the rules as they go along. Then chuck you & your family out like old garbage.

Donít even think about it.

At the push of a key they will send emails that will destroy lives. They will do so without as much as an explanation, management will throw you away like a piece of trash. You then have a specified period of time to get out of the country or you are illegal. They donít care if you were a good employee, how good you are at your job, or how long you were there or your seniority, they just simply donít care. When you have served your purpose or you have extended sickness or injury, you are thrown away. You have NO protection.

They happily will destroy your life and your families, without a word of remorse or explanation. Donít ....just donít

Sadly, the desperation levels amongst many now-unemployed pilots is such that they will take any job, even in the Middle East, as long as they can break even. The only way to live and work out there is to spend almost nothing and repatriate your earnings. Just like the poor men who slave away in construction jobs in those states. That is what it has now come to. And expect T & C's to be much lower than those previously offered. Perhaps as low as 50%. Very tough times.

sorry mate. I stand corrected. Confirmed by internal rumours. Rumours btw all proved to be correct recently, sadly.
