What is the aircraft situation this year?
How many aircraft are coming and are some aircraft going away? In any fleet - A320 A330 or B777? Any changes in ATR fleet as well?

Cost of Living

What is the accommodation costs like in HoChiMinh at the moment?
Are 3-4bedroom apartments more common than houses?
Are the new ATR's ordered replacements of the older ones or expansion?

Cheers

Heard from a chap today who was laid off from ATR operator when they went bankrupt. He says Vietnam Air is not taking any more ATR pilots. Any truth to this?

Don't know about the ATR, but I have been told they do not want any A330 skippers at this stage.

most needed is 777 F/O but hardly available on the free market at the moment.
A-330 will be delayed for the next coming month, 4 to come this year but if possible they will take only 2.
F-70 is pretty full, operated by vietnamese only except one hungarian captain.

Wierd Decision Making at VAC ?

Hi, I was invited to screening back in November,then advised screening was cancelled until further notice, (just as I had budgeted the airfare to CDG, visa and miscellaneous expenses )thinking I would be re-called but now that I´ll be laid off in April and really need the job I have been advised by Parc that VAC no longer wants to screen me.....mysterious mysterious.

Commuting

Hi all,

If I were to live in BKK and work for Vietnam, would I permitted to commute back to BKK on solid days off?
During your 6 weeks ON , how often are there nightstops?
The roster during the 6 weeks ON, is it set in stone ie. 5 days on 2 off?

Cheers

It helps to know what airframe, B777, A330, A320, ATR 72, F-70?

There is no non-reving if that's what you want to do.

Thanks v much

What he means is that you will have to pay full fare to fly back and forth from Thailand to Vietnam.

There are no reciprocal jump seat privileges with Vietnam Airlines.
