Emirates Pilot Jobs Situation

Current Situation:  
Busy recalling redundant A380 pilots. Pilots will be starting at the same salary scale they left on, albeit with loss of seniority.
Approx 1200 A380 pilots were made redundant and it is estimated that 600 of these will be recalled in the next 8/9 months. Loads are still developing but there is a vast increase in routes/destinations that are opening up. It will be a while before they recruit pilots outside of the redundant group.
