But that only equates to an average of around five and a half block hours for each of those fifteen days. Seniority at FlyDubai does seem to enable one to generally avoid night flying, if one wishes and I would happily do 81 hours of day flying spread over 15 days than doing slightly less hours, with the classic EK mix of day and night flying.

Each to their own I guess.

Both fleets have traditionally had lower time rosters for the RHS versus LHS. That has changed on the 380 now and RHS pilots are now seeing rosters squarely in the 90-95 hour territory, some even more. Rumor is that they will crank up the hours RHS 777 as well in a bid to make all pilots as cost effective as possible...don't shoot the messenger, just what I was told on a visit to the 3rd floor one day.

I just hope that your post is sarcasm and not a positive.
Why would that be sarcasm? So yes it was meant as a positive, a big one actually. Especially for a peak summer roster without annual leave. When you look at it it's only about 5.4hrs per day. Or 3hrs one way, 2.5 back to DXB and I'm done. It's actually closer to 4hrs each way cause of a daytime double sector GCC turn thrown in there but who's counting.

Only 2 short-ish night turns in a block of 8 days, 2 long nights but back well before sunrise so it's ok, 2 blocks of 3 OFF and a block of nearly 6 OFF. Rest is all daytime and nice hours. What's there to complain about?

I'm senior but not even that senior. I've seen junior Captains roster who don't bid at all that are actually surprisingly good.

Each to their own indeed.

@Citation, my sincere apologies for arrogantly assuming the middle eastern forum is synonymous to EK.

It's just that the majority of the posters and topics tend to be EK based. Threads can easily be muddled.

All the same I/we wouldn't mind knowing how hard our colleagues from across are working as well. or Not.

2 x Far East
1 x ULR
1 x day turn
1 x Cargo trip

2 x rest days (midnight 30 finishes)

Almost civilised, now if only those 13 in a row off were consecutive.

Am I allowed to suggest that this sounds pretty reasonable or are only negative comments welcome here?

Working 18 days a month for Long Haul is civilized? Good God man there is no hope for us. We deserve everything we get.
Have you seen how many days Long Haul pilots work at LH, AF, or DL? Maybe 10-11 days a month and your happy with 18 days a month.
Pilots like you are a contributing factor for why so many of EK pilots are leaving. The ones that have left know it s never going to get better and probably much worse when the company knows it has pilots like Beef who are so willing to bend over and when they do bend over love the dry penetration.

Well.... My roster is from the 25th till the 22nd and contains 15 working days totalling 66 blockhours. This however includes 2 days given because they had to compensate me for earlier things regarding rostering rules and two flights which include 1 and 2 days extra layover due to no daily flights.
So without those days, 17-18 working days are not really that abnormal in the area you describe (western europe, where I work (legacy carrier)).
The difference is that such a roster would be considered busy here, as at EK it's probably an easy month....

That roster would be practically part time at EK, never mind an easy month.

Left ek this year - happy and no regrets that I left. The ONLY one thing I miss is the 777... The fact that every second or third flight is not a night flight anymore changed my life. Arrogance has ruined many big companies and even countries.
