That is simply not normal for any airline. Let alone a long haul one that markets itself as a prestige airline/ employer.

For August over at FZ and I have 65 hours with 20 days off including 5 leave days. One night flight there, if you count off duty at 0130 as a night duty that is.

Yeah the 737 won’t snap any knicker elastic at 20 paces but the lifestyle sure is sweet as a nut.

We are hiring, just saying....��

777 LHS
98hrs with 9 days off in blocks of 1 or 2 as usual.
July roster similar.
It's completely unsustainable.

Tractor, LHS.

Just the 90 hours, a day in groundschool and a couple of sims.

Totally unsustainable and unhealthy. If I feel unfit now I just press 2 and go SF. To be fair, I haven't been invited for a 'productivity chat' or referred to the docs yet. Just as well really as that would mean Emirates having to manage the roster without me 365 days a year, every year.

Because this is rather exceptional. Most guys don't touch anywhere near 20off, 11/12 seems to be the norm however.
I'm all for a little positivity, but let's stay a little realistic.

Overlapping Leave, 14 days ALV in August, RTGS and two sim days plus 42 hours of flying.

I guess this is merciful compared to July!!

Just been staying with my brother-in-law LHS 777.
July 102 hours, 3 turns and 1 ULR.
August 100 hours, 1 turn and no ULR's.
Both months every second flight with the exception of one is between the hours of 10pm and 6am. He was in top two bid months and got one request for each month.
Soul destroying and unsustainable and for his family having a real negative effect on them all. This is a consistently badly managed company and consistently getting worse year on year. It's also not hard to understand the large turnover of middle management, the article about being hit by the pilot shortage could also be apt for a middle management shortage as well.
