AIs positioning on the B787/B777s... is inevitably going to lead-in expats... for B787/B777 command.

Should not be a big deal. Although their training would be more extensive compared to the 777 pilots.
what he meant was the "TRAINING" in ic is "considered" to be better than the "TRAINING" in AI.

was speaking to a friend of mine who has been on the 777 for the last 3 years and was supposed to be heading for training this week (now postponed), and he was saying from what he could understand from reading the fcom, the 777 is a much simpler a/c comapared to the 787, multiple steps to achieve the same result for the 787.....though he would be biased towards the 777 cause he loves it there and is not very keen for the shift to 787...

but interesting first thoughts.....

What is the latest on the pilot tug-of-war for the 787 slots? With the delivery presumably beginning shortly (April or May), there must be pilots in training right now.

If the most senior pilots at AI are on the 777 (according to the article), does that mean that 747-400 pilots are mid-level seniority? Will 744 pilots have the ability to bid the 787 even though it is not similar to the 777 systems (i.e., easier to convert to the 787 from the 777)?

I am guessing that more 777 pilot leaving to the 787 means more coveted 777 slots for everyone else.

Any updates? PMs also welcome.

Echo Echo Echo....

Any updates? With the 787 delivery imminent, there has to be some new information - no?

No Cancellations Mate


AI has not cancelled their order for Dream liners. Infact Boeing has asssured a compensation of 32 million Dollars for the delay in delivery of the orders. You can get a copy of details from MOCA if you ask the details by RTI act...... it was in all news papers.......Infact AI has claimed a cpmpensation of 10 Billion...... !!!!
