The worm is right. Travel is only in their system. Doesn't get you to the states. They pay the expat ATR standard, around 8K a month after local taxes and out of that you pay for your housing and living costs. I hear that COL is cheap and also very expensive. I think you have to be there awhile to find the deals and not look like you're fresh off the boat. But remember you get what you pay for, even over seas. Also, the interview is 2-3 days and sim only. Dont ask me why. They tell you that if you are selected that you must start class immediately, don't know how people swing that one either. Me and a couple of Indian expats were going to jump ship and go there but the Indian airlines at least get you home. If you are a hard core SOB who can just about handle anything and have nothing holding you back in the states, then doing the expat thing is a good way to save some coin. But, like I said, it's not free or easy.
Also, before you sign on the dotted line, remember that the growth that brought on the big expat movement is stalled and even shrinking. Here in India there is a big meeting for our company coming up. Rumor is that its not good news. The natives want the expats gone in the worse way and since the companies are cutting only their pay and not the expats, due to our contracts, its like curry in the wound.
Try Aeroprofessional, the European outfit, not the French Canadian one. They can answer specific questions, not that Thunderworm cant, but look at his avatar. You really want to trust your future to a man who digs a half nude Hoff? Wheres my Wendys?
