Maybe they will provide a pink bike for each crew , to be refunded obviously .

Good thing if at least there's place in the crew room to lock up said bike without paying. In the not-so-distant past, I've seen crew members of a now-defunct European airline actually cycling to work on a wet and chilly autumn day and then ditching the bikes in their company's briefing room. This place was probably not an isolated example. Things like that mostly tend to happen when there are few alternatives available in case you don't like how it is - and, for some time from now, there won't be any.

On a serious note and further to the AUH package discussion, what's the deal with medical insurance there? Any health care provided, at least in case of an emergency?

Don't know about that , but they are bucking the current trend and opening bases at Gatwick and Doncaster Sheffield . Maybe they know something the rest of the loco's don't , in which case maybe time to buy some shares .

Any update, did WAZ start flying yet?
Apparently pilots being assessed by Wizz Air are now being asked if they would accept AUH base – they didn't really ask that question in October.
Allegedly the amount of internal applications for AUH is a small number.

Looking at Wizz flight schedule out of Abu Dhabi, pilots will only work 10 days a month... (i.e. 20 days off / month).... as they will block 8.30 to 11.00 hours a day (2 sector day).
Unless they night-stop... which is definitly not Wizzair type of operations....

Out of desperation, I applied back in June 2020.
I was working with another airline in the area until covid pandemic made me redundant.
Just for information, my salary was almost double (inclusive allowances), in a cheaper place than Abu Dhabi and no kids at school.
For the money Wizzair is offering, you can have a decent life in Eastern Europe. Cost of living in UAE is at least double than other european countries. I can assure all of you, their salary won't be not enough. Rent in Abu Dhabi alone is the highest in UAE, not to mention school fees.
If you're single, you should be alright. But if you are a family of 3-4 or even more, you won't make without paying extra money.

Is Wizzair AUH flying yet? Any "insiders" care to comment?
(Is it still 7000€/month + 1500€ housing ? - pre-covid package - )

And if they started ops, what is the roster like? How many sectors would one fly per month on average?
It’s long sectors which supposedly means a greater distance pay.

Is the 2000 euro bonus paid monthly on top of the salaries?
