This is all sounding a bit dodgy to me. Maybe best to avoid the bamboo!

I can validate this statement. It works both ways too. Additionally, there is no such thing as a type rating, predicated on a contract, unless in a third world police state, ie The PRC or Nam. Even then, your license can be held in bureaucratic limbo, but you still have the certificate. Unless you’re in Rwanda, then they physically take your license if you’re PNG’d or terminated. The respective CAA can then refuse to validate your certificate to a requesting body. IE a perspective employer. In which case your new employer or CAA will see this as a confirmation of your job history and HR will receive confirmation as to why you are seeking employment at airline XYZ in said nation. Or, rarely, the job in question is in another police state and managed by morons. In which case, their heads will explode that their request for your validation was denied. Then they’ll call you up and say something like “my, you weren’t kidding where you”?, or “we are unfortunately unable to validate your experience at this time”, followed by stamps, official forms in triplicate, a head bobble or suspicious glances.

No Vietnamese airline provides accommodation. VNA are the only ones that give free, business class, tickets home on rostered weeks off.

They seem to play with pilot's lifes. Encouraging them to resign, leave proper jobs and now they are jobless and without any further sign of responsibility from Bamboo..

As well the have change conditions reducing salary 25% of what they advertised. But agencies still announced GS courses and full salary which is a scam.

​​​​​
people actual resign from a 787 paying job to join an airline with no 787 planes?

Apparently a pilot from the unmentionable airline in the Middle East is joining (has joined?) as B787 fleet manager, initials SS. This pilot was a 737 only pilot who joined the Boeing CCL contract to be an instructor on the 737. He was type rated on the 787 and flew a total of 2-3 flights from an operating seat before joining the unmentionable airline with a magical 400-500 hours of PIC time in type. Liars like that have no place in aviation. If this is true, Bamboo should get rid of him quick before his lack of integrity and honesty adversely affect the airline.

Last week's Skype interviews were cancelled, seems if you want to join this company the best thing is your already unemployed, don't leave a airline to join there.

When CEO of Bamboo Airways EDDY DOYLE was presented with recruiting contract breaches and misrepresentations, he immediately blocked my Linkedln profile from Bamboo.
