Thanks APU_inop, much appreciated. Without trying to sound too stupid, when you say shape the roster, could you elaborate? I understand preferential bidding etc, having used it in a previous airline, but it was heavily manipulated.

Goes in cycles, right now for the 787 FOs the rosters are great.
For the 777 FOs it is very hard work at the moment if you have the IRP and Cargo training done, they're working on it but it's taking time. Good money though if you don't do much deadheading on paxflights.
It was the other way around not long ago so it's hard to tell what to expect however it's still a good gig for many.

great infos thanks!

Anyone knows average waiting time in pool for Airbus fleet? And is it going to improve by incoming 320neo,350 fleet? Thank you!

By shaping I mean if you prefer a block of days off (typically up to 6) or if you want one block of 4 and scatter the remaining off days. Preferences for far east, africa, europe etc.
At times when there are plenty of pilots in your fleet satisfaction rate is high on the bids conversely lower when there are less pilots.

How do the 777 and 787 rosters compare? It looks like the 787 does a bunch of short flights as well.

My stats for this fiscal year are approximately 1050 block hours on 777, factored (FO). Duty Time over 1600.
Great lifestyle, I can only recommend it to everyone because the city is also so nice and your family will love it. If you are single you will love our fantastic cabin crew as well. They might not say hello to you because you are most likely someone who earns too much for doing nothing, while at the same time just trying to sleep with them on layovers and they know from the company that it's better not to hang out with you (I told you already that the company is smart).
Before I forget, the culture and the positive developments in every aspect of how they run the airline really inspired me.

I really think that I will miss the DOH LAX flight without day off or the cargo runs with min rest every second flight because we have an effective fatigue management system which is entirely embedded in the usual just culture.
Please come and take my place when im gone after my notice is done, the seat will still be warm and I haven't farted a lot recently.

He speaks the truth. For the less adept at sarcasm spotting. including the farting declaration.

Plenty of operators begging for your talent. Feel free to vote with your feet. That'll teach them.

The y have closed the A320/330 First officer applications now? Enough people swimming I suppose?

ECHUQ 27th Mar 2019 18:57

For the people going to the LGW and/or STN BOEING assessment day, any information about how many days will it be? the SIM is going to be there or we will have to fly to Doha for it?

I believe more of a presentation and meeting....think they are now doing some of the basic interview processes at the roadshow to help and narrow down the list.......but those selected will still come to Doha for the remaining parts of the assessment

do you think emirates can find out if I go to the day in stn? If they find it out, u think they would rule me out because of that?

Hi,

Thanks.

I would suggest you as an individual can go to as many roadshows/ interviews as you like. If you are worried about EK finding out you went to a Qatar intrerview, I would politely suggest you think about that.

How should they find out? Do you think there is an international Roadshow Attendance Register? I think most of the airlines know nowdays that their candidates visit more screenings...
