A couple of buddies have recently gone there; one has started and the other has just been accepted. Both are SO's. One other is a DEFO on the A330 out of Oz. I'll ask him when I speak with him next if he knows of any difference between the interviews.

I have sent them emails so hopefully they get back to me in shortish order.

not to hijack here, but what is the deal with this SO thing? What do you really do? On what equipment? How long is upgrade to FO? Also when you do upgrade, do you upgrade on the same equipment you were SO on? Or do they put you on a smaller type? I thought about it before, but was never really sure of the details, or even looked into it too much... just kinda had the regional job here so.. any answers would be cool.

Also, if you guys cant find too much info here, pprune is great for foreign stuff.

Koru, if you get the info, could you also PM me the info as well. That's where I'd like to end up, some one else in my flight school wants to go there as well. I'd be nice to have some goals to work towards.

hey koru I would definently appreciate a Pm with the info too! Flyboy the only information I have found is from pprune or aviationinterviews.com. It has a lot of information but you can never have enough in my book. How many hours you have flyboy? Feel free to pm me with that stuff Im just curious how I will match up by the begining of the year.

The interview is basically the same except for one item in the sim. No flying except the sim for SO and maybe in cruise. Good job with lots of time off....Good luck.

My buddy tells me that he has about 30MB of stuff . . . offered to send a disk. Not sure that would help anybody. He did say that not all of the information he got his hands on was factual, but that it was a good base to study from. Basically, he studied everything he could get. I'll see what the best way to get it out there is.

To answer an SO question from above, another good friend of mine just went to the B777 after about three and a half years on the B744 as an SO. He was bypassed in that time, but was put on bypass pay. Apparently the fleet change was a real breath of fresh air as well.

Sorry for the lack of help at this time; I'll get on it and perhaps someone from CX could chime in.
