they will not help you open an account in Japan, once training is done you have no residency in Japan.

Give me some advices.

Hi
iIam currently flying B737 and now have an opportunity to take a conversion to B777 in the company I am currently working for.
If I take the opportunity, there will be an addition of $30000 to my current bond.
My ultimate goal in airline life is to enter ajx. In this situation if you were me how would you do?

Thanks for your reply in advance

Yes, there are a couple of Brazilians here. Although I think one of them has recently relocated to the US since the commute is so long.

There is no prorating of your commute allowance. You either take the business class ticket to your place of residence or the 2000.

Hi Guys,

anyone knows how long is the wait time for
command upgrade? Are they moving pilots to the 787? And what about the commuting to Spain or Canada? Looking for some flights to go back to Japan there is the time zone problem. The company give an extra day of commuting due to this or I will have to use one of my days off to go back to work?
And the tickets should be in ANA network or I will send for them where I live and they will make the arrengements?

thanks

Seriously, just read the thread. Everything you just asked about has already been discussed several times.

Hi guys,

many thanks for such an informative thread here on the forum which is usually much more rotten. Professional and informative for guys looking for the greener grass on the other side of the world.

I have been trying to go through the forum to not post any question that haven't yet been answered. However I don't think this one has been discussed in the near future:

How do you guys sort out the self provided accommodation when you're on duty in Tokyo? Do you guys usually share an apartment or stay in hotels etc? Also, does this amount to a very big lump of money or is this easily overseen? I know that Tokyo's a big place and accommodation can be expensive so I just wonder how you guys usually do it.

I really hope to be joining in the company in the near future and that I might be deemed worthy to come fly with you guys!

Once again thanks for the informative forum posts and dedication to helping us out who are still in the dark!

Cheers

Edited to add: We don't sort out accommodation when we're on duty. AJX provides accommodation when downroute and when we're in Japan for duty e.g. simulator.

When we're off duty:

You receive $550 per month accommodation allowance. If you are on standby and do not get called then you will receive an 'extra' $55 to cover the additional accommodation.

If you choose to stay in MyStays Hotel you will pay JPY7000 per night. There is an amazingly complicated formula where they calculate if the exchange rate etc covers your accommodation and if you get additional money but no-one actually understands it. Sometimes extra money appears on the pay slip to cover the above

Some people choose to stay in Narita apartments, which are cheaper than Tokyo and closer to commute to the airport (assuming you're not rostered to fly from HND). Apartments are usually around the JPY80000-90000 per month mark, including utilities. Some people have their own, single, apartments and some share slightly larger ones. If you think of around JPY80000 for a single and JPY50000 for sharing then I reckon you'll be able to calculate if you'd like to do that or not.

I don't know how much the guys in Tokyo pay but they will be more expensive. They get to enjoy the proximity of the sights and sounds of Tokyo itself, instead of Narita, but will have to endure the extra time on the train/bus most of the time commuting to NRT for duty. Sometimes they will fly from HND and there commute will be greatly reduced but that will be in the minority and the schedulers don't care where you live.

Fratemate, big thanks for that! I am amazed by the treatment they seem to give you guys and also the conditions that follows. Usually it seems like itís one or the other.

If anybody has any experience working for AJX while living in Malaysia, or have any information about it, please can I send a DM for a few questions?

Again, thanks everybody!

Smile Hello guys!

Hello, I have gone through many posts here and have not found anything to cover my query. How does AJX manage the ATP requirement for FO? I mean, I took a look at the requirements for this position on their brokers and they ask for ATPL. Most airlines on the world just ask for frozen-ATPL when you are FO (which means to pass the written exam once a year, and once you get your upgrade they sign your ATPL), is this the case of AJX? In my case I have +8000 TT and 6500 as AIB FO with frozen-ATPL.

Thanks for your help.

Benttis,

Japanese airlines are NOT most airlines in the world!

You need an ATPL to get hired here as a foreigner. Even hired as an FO all your sim time as PF will be in the left seat. There are 2 sim checks, the first one a type rating (unless you are already 767 rated), the second one is a check to issue you a Japanese ATPL with a command rating on the 767.
