Basically, your salary consists of three parts which is your basic, flying per hour pay and overseas nightstop/layover allowance. Most airlines (eg. Singapore and Malaysian Airlines) pay the overseas allowance in your local currency and bank it into your account.You have to change to the foreign currency to whichever nightstop that you have.EK (Emirates) will pay you cash instead in the local currency of that particular country. So your monthly salary defers and it depends on how many hours you are flying in that month and which nightstops you have.Certain countries have a better allowance and some lesser. For example, if I can recall correctly, station such as Paris you are being paid about 90Euros per night. Anyway, your basic and flying pay per hour (tax free) are : -
USD1 = 3.67Dhs Basic Flying Pay
Grade CC.06 : ( Pursur ) - 5,515Dhs 90.5Dhs
Grade CC.05: ( Senior steward/stewardess ) - 4,825Dhs 84.5Dhs
Grade CC.04: ( first class ) - 4,225Dhs 68Dhs
Grade CC.03: ( business ) - 4,225Dhs 62Dhs
Grade CC.02 : ( economy ) - 4,020 Dhs 55.5Dhs
When you join, you start off as a Grade2 operating in the economy class section. As you fly and gain more experience, you will be promoted to the list of grades above. Promotion is generally fast as Ek is getting plenty of new aircraft each month for the next few years. The fastest I know to promote from a Grade2 to Pursur is 5 years. I think to be a pursur or IFS in SIA,you need to fly 15 years or more. If you want to bring your career to a higher level, you can actually apply as a Senior Flight Pursur, Cabin Crew Instructor or a Cabin Crew manager.
You will be provided with free accommodation, utility bills and transport. For SFS and above, you have a studio apartment for yourself while generally for the normal crew it's two to three sharing per apartment. If you opt to stay outside company provided accommodation, you will be given an accommodation allowance.The last 2008 accommodation allowance are 72000Dhs PA for Pursur, 68000 Dhs for SFS and 42700Dhs for normal crew.
Benefit wise, you will enjoy the usual perks as an airline crew such as staff and family concessional travel, 30 days of annual leave , medical coverage and comprehensive Insurance Scheme.
