Is anyone able to tell me a bit more about finances. Specifically, the Provident scheme isn't enough to fund a retirement, so it will need to be topped up monthly through salary. Are people simply investing, is there a local pension scheme available and ultimately, netting c.31,000AED, after life in Dubai, a mortgage in home country and trying to save, it doesn't leave much left for a pension? Am I way off on my numbers or is the FO job not lucrative enough?

There is no local state pension scheme available to expats. Your Provident fund is all you get, and is relatively "generous" compared to what the average is in the UAE.

You will need to fund life after Dubai through savings/ investing from your monthly pay. So yes depending on your circumstances it can be very difficult to save anything. Also keep in mind you may or may not be eligible for state pension back in your home country depending on how long you contributed to that system.

What are the predictions for 787? Do You think it will be doing ultra long hauls as 777, or more likely shorter flights, for example 5-7h flights without 3rd or 4th pilot in flight deck?

Absolutely no firm plans for the 787. A350 is being managed into the fleet as of now. We may not even see the 787 so trying to predict what it may or may not do is pointless.

How is the 350 being crewed? Direction or bidding from 380?

Colleagues who have passed were 3000-4000, I have 5000 plus and I would guess I was the lowest of the 7 candidates in my group

Yes, the experience levels the week I went were very high. All candidates were already Captains in their respective airlines and not everyone got through, Airbus guys were applying for the Accelerated entry and Boeing just DEFO.

I'm told Emirates will pay for a 20' container from your origin country to Dubai. If you need more space, you must chip in the difference to upgrade to a 40' container. Be aware that you will pay the full amount either way, but will then claim it back from them. I think they use DNATA logistics, who will liase with packers in your home country. All my friends told me the experience was relatively painless, and the packers did a very good job wrapping everything up in general - this was all from my home country though, so experiences may differ. If you are accepted at Emirates, they will assign you an 'onboarding co-ordinator' who will be available to you regarding all the joining requirements, this included. They reported that the co-ordinators were very helpful in general.

At the moment, this is the only company offering the opportunity to jump from a narrow-body to a wide-body aircraft. Qatar also offers, but there is a lottery. So it makes sense

VThokie2, why don't you try and make sensible, helpful comments and reply to the question.

All you are doing is succeeding in being a jerk.

That WAS a very sensible and helpful comment, in fact it most likely will increase your lifespan if followed! However it was given in a harsh manner and was not nuanced enough and have since deleted it! EK was a good experience to have had however I am so thankful to have escaped and wish I had done so significantly sooner!

Size of the plane shouldn’t matter, only the fine balance of QOL, Money and Job Satisfaction…. If EK would provide that compared to where you are now then go for it, but if you are doing it for the size of the plane that’s about the worst reason!

Hello, could anyone let me know if at first you get invited to just Hirevue and after you passed it, you do the Online Psychometrics – Abstract Reasoning and MS Interview, or is it HIirevue + Online Psychometrics – Abstract Reasoning, and after you passed them you do the MS Interview?.

Cheers.
