Is this the carrier that is hiring B744 Capt's and FO's in the Middle East? The company is "Confidential".

I'd be wondering about the accomodations. The Kingdom is not Dubai.

I flew with guys who worked for them years ago. They liked working for Saudia, but hated living in the Kingdom. But, if you like living in the home of fundamental, extremeist (Wahabbi) Islam, then you may be interested.

I've been very drunk on the Saudia compound before :) So it ain't that bad. The only downside is the very hot French Moroccan FAs have a midnight curfew.

Also went diving with guys who dove every weekend for 8 years :eek: Needless to say they had every PADI rating one could imagine. Great shore diving right off the coast of Jeddah and pretty good reefs a short boat ride away. If you've ever flown over the Red Sea in the day you'd know what I'm talking about. Some excellent diving all up and down the coast.

My gang moved into a waterfront compound north of the airport. Had a 9 hole grass golf course. I played golf 3 days a week and flew the other 4. Not bad, but I knew it was a short term gig so that made it much more tolerable.

I wouldn't really recommend it for a long term deal with family.

Any idea what kind of schedules (days off) this gig would have?

TP,

How would you compare it to your current gig at EK?

Yeah, TP, I was looking at it from a family perspective. Like I said, the guys I flew with liked the airline, it was the restrictions that wore on them. If you just did in country flying it would be tough unless you had a few weeks off out of the Kingdom to recharge your..ah..batteries.

You just can't keep the homebrew guys down...!

EK is better in just about every facet. Family life is better; flying is better; career prospects are better; money is better; nightlife is better; golf is better. The Scuba diving in Saudi is better.
