Emirates recalling redundant

So apparently no discussion happening about people who have been recalled. Just curious to know how many have been recalled and anyone who was called back but didnít accept the offer?
I came to know some capts were offered FO position as well with the promise of command happening after first recurrent.

So far it seems to be very junior (still on probation) FOs and the odd captain here and there. Current plans to start in Nov-Dec depending on business need.

Majority of FO were from last batch of redundancy so not the most juniors. There was the odd juniors from other batches but with high total time.

Only 380! No pilots have been recalled as of yet. At the moment it's an online short interview to see where every one is at. Everyone will go into a holding pool and called when the requirement dictates. Calls have been made across the board and not targeted at certain individuals regardless of experience and time in the company.

people have already been given expected joining that is Nov-Dec-Jan slots. Recall only on 380 only. No interviews on 777.

umm doesn’t look like the case as I was early 2020 joiner and no one that I know of has been called. Only experienced and up on the seniority is what it looks like.

Not senior FOs. Guys I know have about 18 mths to 2 years in the company but high experience levels. So it looks like EK still want to get their investment back.

Junior CA, yes as FO for minimum one PPC.

CA’s with a least a few years EK LHS experience, have been told to expect LHS positions.

I’ve heard of at least three FOs who have been interviewed who were still on probation from joining. One an October 2019 starter. A good (FO) friend with two years in company still hasn’t, but your mileage may vary. Some low hour skippers going RHS, upgrade next spring/summer depending on how the business situation improves.

All in all its a positive step, but sadly expect much recrimination on EK flight decks going forward…

Told by who ? Good friend 19 years /16 as captain got the RHS email .
Has any of the first 600 been asked back ? Wondering if they are categorized differently.

it appears first out last in as of their typrating is long gone and the gcaa medical is out of date by now too. Looks pretty much: how much it will cost to bring them back ( of course it’s short minded, because by the time they will be actually back all redundant in the same boot - it now who cares about tomorrow)

Wow, a guy 16 years CP got the RHS email!?!? That really makes no sense! I would love to see the “logic” behind that one…As for the first 600 none that I have heard of. Some great guys and girls in that group too

correct, got to know yesterday a friend of mine released December 2019 also got the call. Still wondering how are they sorting out the recall as one of my friend SFO joining Jan 2019 didn’t get call.

Unfortunately it looks like they are being selective! A matrix of some sort was used for the redundancy and a different matrix will be used for recall. I remember many years ago STC saying the airline ( read him!)was data driven . AAR is notorious for constantly changing the goal posts . Being frank, until one of the first 600 gets a call I would assume last to be called or not called at all.

I filled out the “expression of interest” email. A week later, the T&C email came, which I promptly put in the trash.
EK claimed 90% of the emails were responded to by redundant pilots.

That's your prerogative but I know several who really want to get back to flying again and feeding their families in the best way they know how; all waiting for a call from EK.

Well, we know how EK does propaganda. Nevertheless for sure a lot have replied to see what’s up. But replying isn’t a yes on either side and therefore does not mean much. And stating there is a Pool of 90% let’s most people shut up spreading new bad rumors around here, proof it had become very quite on here.
and yes people need jobs urgently for feeding the families as there is literally only a hand full of people having found alternative jobs in- or outside aviation. Most are somehow in the need for an aviation job and the job situation in Europe isn’t funny at all, because if there are some jobs the pay is just a joke and if you have a easy ticket into EK that might sound like an option (at least better) than what’s on in Europe.
