seems the Canucks showing up round these parts are for the most part Jetsgo folks, who easily slot into things here, not too sure abot the screening process...different group of folks handle that job...but whatever they are doing it seems to be working, people been through the "box" with me have all been great, and havent heard any complaints from other fleets either...all I can say is keep trying

An interseting bit of news today in the paper says that GF is receiving a 100mill BD infusion from the Gov'T. That has to be good news for GF. If only some would get to you guys. I think the egos of the ruling families in this region are reason to feel that the Gulf is a long term stable place to work. Good Luck, and thanks again for all of the feedback above.
The offer for JJs still stands. I would even treat to dinner at the Warbler on any Monday night!

Hello all,

I want to thank you for the host of info.......I have a quick question that you might be able to answer. If you come to Bahrain what is the policy regarding pets brought over from other countries? Are you able to bring them over? Thanks in advance....

The post.

Although it says no vacancies at the moment I do know that is v short term. Will get back with more info.

As for pets Dogs & Cats normally OK but depends on which country it is coming from, more exotic then not too sure, my sons snake could not be brought into the country.

Hi there McFly16,

Why don't you try a search? I'm sure there are a lot of previous posts about this subject.

There isn't vacancy for "Direct Entry Pilots" or "Pilot Training Programmes" but I think there is for the normal entry process.

well.....you either come in as a "direct entry" pilot, or as a "cadet" what's the other way?

ladies and gents

its a bit late in the thread, but at EK we only got a 7% increase in basic salary this year.

manglement added in a further 3% to give the overall appearance of a 10% increase, but that was just an annual increment really, which it something we would all actually expect to get provided we hadn't screwed the pooch.

We got an insignificant increase in the living out allowance, and a minor increase in productivity pay and callout pay.

So, an 8% increase at Gulf traveller looks like it's on the mark. (Dependiing on how it's components are identified) To be sure the cost of living in BAH is lower than in Dubai.

We have 24 hrs per day rush hour here now - it never stops. The rostering practices here are appalling and it is a pretty unpleasant life.

Traffic wise. Bahrain is headed that way as well...decade ago used to be the occasional jam-up at specific places namely sitra causeway/Nabih Saleh areas, and the good old pearl roundabout...the flyover system solved the pearl/seef areas, but it has now shifted to the area next to the Regency hotel, and of course the Sitra situations hasnt changed...the left turn southbound into Juffair is a mess, the left turn signal follows the straight signal, if they were to reverse this it might solve a few problems....increments at GF on schedule...personally for me it is a waste of time to jump from one carrier to another here, but for some it seems to be worthwhile..a few headed to EK as 777DEC...guess they have their reasons...whatever...it's beer o"clock on the boat today...

As a matter of interest, what is your experience level and when did you first apply. Have been waiting a while now with not even a little bite. Anyway good luck with the interview process.
