Another 12 months means , for some,@3years no work . A tad long . Being asked back may be the easiest and cheapest way to gain currency. Ignore the BS that comes with Dubai /EK and position oneself for better opportunities. "Back in the game" ,you might say.

I agree with you......it's just seems some here get quite upset when you are not out to live their agenda. I am here because it suits me and it is too bad if it doesn't suit other people.

Anyone else is in the same situation as me who attended the emirates assessment just before the pandemic but have not heard back from them?

You might have big chances of having a call when training capacity allows for it, as you have no "file" whatsoever in the company. But that still stays my guess...

Sorry to say, but don’t hope for a quick call. It pretty much looks like they are going throu the list of redundant (less training to do) before they are ready to go for newbies. Even thou you got a positive interview, which easily can be turned into a „you have to do it again“, there is still about 200 guys who where under probation when they got the news, and they where under training or just finished with it. I am sure they are on a list for later as well.
As the transparent communication says, the have no exact plan on the demand coming and therefore even the redundant ones pretty on hold and waiting, supplied with weekly/monthly updates. They know people are waiting for answers but, you know how it goes.

IMO, they will stop call backs around about March next year and start hiring anew. The excuse will be that 2 years have lapsed since we last flew and that they will have to give full conversions anyway and that there is no advantage to hiring those they made redundant.

the fired600 have very little chance of being recalled. As somebody said earlier, there’s a reason we were the first to go.

Happy to be proven wrong but not holding my breath.

that’s might be the excuse but it’s incorrect, upto 5 years you only need a revaluation of your type Rating in theUAE, so it would only need a Short course until than. But it’s EK perfide way of looking into things to be again very pro employee. To all newbies who want so desperately join EK - you have no clue what you are getting into.

I could give you a real answer, but after seeing your previous messages in PPRuNe I just realised you're messing around . I'd rather get the popcorn and watch the show...

Team flyer, considering what a lot of guys are going through I would call your post disrespectful. Grow up .

Hi gents. Glass half full here.
Me and most friends are starting to get jobs, and callbacks from applications submitted months ago.
Vaccines are improving.
Medications are improving.
PCRs are way faster.
A system which works is going to come by soon, to travel regardless of Covid in origin and destination.
Perception, which is everything in the end, is improving.
There is a lot of savings waiting to be spent. More than in decades.
Saudi Arabia is investing a gazillion dollars in it's new airline.
FlyDubai is hiring.
Wizz is hiring.
Regionals in the US are giving thousands of dollars in retention bonds and cargo companies don't know where to find pilots anymore.
I say in less than 18 months, we all have jobs, or improved jobs, and going back to the sandpit will be just a choice, just like it used to be. Even more sandpit choices than before.
I believe EK is going to get a serious 380 captain bottleneck at some point, if they keep playing the holding pool game.
Good luck to all!

Interesting article claiming EK want 600 new pilots over the next 6 months. How they recalled who they wanted back? Now onto new faces?

Shameful of EK. That's putting it mildly.
