(most of the horrible comments are from 2007 / 2008). Has anything changed since 2007? I have my assessment in May but to be perfectly honest, I feel quite skeptical now with regards to KAL. Also, any info regarding CCL? Any fresh info is highly appreciated. Regards
No it has not changed since 2008 , young guys came into the system but its still the same problem ,, Its cultural .. Culture of fear and punishment . Many guys joined now from a respectable airline with tons of B777 hrs and the training in some cases took 6 months and they guys did not fail anything.. In that 6 months you loose 12 days of leave for the year and sick days and lots of money .. Plus not allowed to go home , stuck in this horrible hotel for days at end.. and they dont care ..
Be careful of the days off they advertise , now again short of pilots ... the contract says 6 hard days and 3 soft days , so now they are super short and only give 6 days off.
The time that you are here you fly everyday .. it can be more then 90 hrs as its factored hrs and you can then still add the travelling time to and from home .
Most expat guys here have applications in somewhere else .. not worth the effort .. This airline do not deserve your experience .. they cannot understand that they get good guys and then they leave
1996 the pay was 600 usd less then now for a Captain ... as i said the pay is not worth the effort.

A380 DEC

What happened to the A380 DEC job? Don't see it on Rish or CCL lately.

Yes you should check it out. However I would recommend when you interview ask about the "license verification check" you are required to do after your second week of joining.

it's a pc verification that you really are who you say you are. No warm-up, you are likely paired with your partner, checked by a Korean TRE.

I haven't heard of anyone who has failed, but what if you do? Interesting to see what KAL response is.
