The vast majority of pilot’s wives are really happy and they have in most cases furthered their careers in business, law and finance.

Meydan can be quite miserable, but generally everybody gets along really well and there’s a real community feel there.

I wouldn’t worry about a car as taxis are dirt cheap in Dubai and they are usually teslas. If you do buy, have a look at Dubizzle, lots of really good guys on there looking to give you a great deal and the cars usually have a 720-point-inspection.
Thanks for all the info.
In case, I would even consider to ship my own car here, after I would check if it makes any sense.
Anyway, still I need to pass last part of selection and medical

And Torilla,

Further to NimrodJoes advice,

Meydan South is an amazing residence, Emirates spared no expense to build best world quality accommodation, The fittings and furnishings are top quality. Also the security personal there are the friendliest blokes, will bend over backwards to help you out. They are great guys to have over for a few beers and a bbq.

Here's a setting one can use if you'd like to converse with adults.

Can you talk about your process?
Which type and how many hours do you have?
When have you applied? From their first contact how long is the waiting for the next steps?

Sure, I hope it will help.
I’m FO on a320, a bit more then 4000h
I applied in winter 2022, they contacted me after few weeks and now my trip to Dubai is planned for late August.

First was very short phone call, maybe 3-5 min. After that I got choice of the dates for Hire Vue. As I remember 5 questions, recorded, short time to prepare. You can see how it looks like on YT. After passing that stage I got a link to psychometric and abstract thinking test. I used LPJ to prepare for it.
Next was panel interview: 1 pilot, 1 HR - very nice atmosphere. Mostly questions about your motivation, most difficult flight, general experience etc. No technical questions. Was around 45 - 50 min. After 3-4 days I got information with invitation for last stage in DXB.
How fast will be next stage depends on you as well cause they send you choice of dates. Was from 1 week to 4 weeks between each stage, now bit longer waiting for Dubai, but they will ask you to send 3 periods for travel

Explains the “enhanced contracts” being offered to “experienced first officers” (without command experience) yet we all get 4 percent!!!!!

Have the job requirements changed at EK for FO's, I see now that 2000 >19T Jet time is required. Could have sworn its was 1500 not too long ago?

it was 5000 hours as well previously. I suggest you check emirates careers for up to date prerequisites instead of asking on here .

He's asking if anyone remembers them being 1500. He's not asking for the current requisites as he clearly knows they're 2000h..

Flydubai has been more successful in having high quality candidates actually apply, interview and JOIN since the pandemic. EK has become a drunken dream but not a realistic option for serious pilots

Does EK factor the flight time? How many hours do you really spend on the airplane per year including DH for cargo flights and so on? The only way I would ever work in the middle east again was if 900 hours a year mean 900 hours of real blocktime per year max, not counting 8 hours for a 16 hour flight to the US.

The hours are factored so they don't count towards your annual limit and you aren't paid for them neither. I have averaged close to 1100 hours a year (not including the pandemic). When you are coming close to the 900 hour limit prediction, they will roster you for ULRs to maximise your productivity.

Although your question is clearly rhetorical..
The chief of the regulator is the owner of the airlines. You know it will not change so don't come.
Max 2 (u)lr flight (4 legs) a month and lets say 1 month away on holiday if you are lucky. So 11 x 4 x 6 = 264 extra hours. Total max 1164 hrs under 'normal' circumstances.

Not taking into account any corona (longhaul) turnarounds..

Why do the EU and the US even allow EK to operate into their airspace. 1100 hours annually is insane.
