Hi panther, is it your Registration for Future Opportunities submission status that change to SHORTLISTED or the one that say First Officer Opportunities submission status?
Because My submission status on First Officer Opportunities is APPLICATION RECEIVED after I upload all my document. And my submission status on Registration for Future Opportunities is change to SHORTLISTED.

Well I think EK will be recruiting externally in 6 months time personally.
why?
A certain well known private jet company is recruiting at present. Interviewing 8 pilots a day for the last 2 weeks. On one day I know 3 of the pilots were ex EK 2 A380 captains, 16 years, 10 years and an FO 8 years not sure what fleet. All said they wouldnít go back after the way they were treated.

Thats just one airline. How many more have thrown the towel in?

A lot. Plus the ones that will never be called back because of their being "bad apples".
Move on.

Yes I'm serious. Look at loads and networks on most other Flag Carriers, most of them are barely touching the international markets yet.
EK and Qatar are trying to take the lead on reconnecting cities and countries.
I'm speaking purely on a network/connection/available flights standpoint.
The rush and need for pilots will follow very closely behind...

Hey chobo, I have similar submission status just as yours. I got a little impatient and emailed pilot recruitment but still waiting for a reply.

Well let us know if you got any reply from them. I guess everybody is still at the same stage, nobody get any further than this and they probably have thousand of application in their hand.

How can you be impatient when there are hundreds of redundant EK pilots waiting to be recalled? Somewhat presumptuous aren't you? As for emailing pilot recruitment and getting a reply, I think there is more chance of it snowing in Dubai!
Let's keep to the thread at hand and that is the recall of redundant pilots!

As someone who is going through the rejoining process I can tell you that HR is utterly swamped and unable to cope with the rejoiners. I rate the chances of external candidates being processed in the near future is very low. By my estimation it will be at least a year or so before the backlog of returning former employees gets dealt with.

That’s EK… Textbook example of „how not to do it” 🤷🏼‍♂️ Is anybody surprised, knowing EK?

Apart from the fact, that I am more than surprised, one would even consider rejoining the company, being made redundant and the way people have been treated in the first place…. Different topic though….

Remember… You will start from the bottom of the seniority list! Just brace for the next crisis! Last in first out…. and it’ll start all over again!

Except it wasnít last in, first out.

Being new (beyond probation) actually helped escape the chop.

Being held back from command actually helped escape the chop.

Seniority had nothing to do with who was let go, in fact quite the opposite.

At least recalled pilots going back to their original pay scale . This could have an impact as to who and when .

Oh I’m fully aware of the situation thank you, however the choice between stocking shelves in Tesco or LHS of a 380 isn’t much of a choice, especially if you leave emotion to one side. I will just ensure that my backup plan is more polished than last time.

I think we all need to still be very cautious with our optimism. Commercial aviation is not going to recover to what it was pre covid for some time, and the smart airlines know this. You only have to speak to the man in the street or your neighbour to realise that there is not as much money around anymore for those quick trips across the world to visit family in Auz or wherever. Businesses have also been hit hard and have realised they can do zoom meetings etc without having to fly across the world at the drop of a hat which was the way before. Yes, there is and will be a short lived spurt of travel in months to come as people feel the need to break the Covid spell, but once things settle down again there could be a very different travel industry.

don’t forget CO2 taxation and the call from green activists to stop 1 hr flight all across Europe
on the other hand cargo flying is in the uprise once production shortage is handled
