Absolutely right. But it was resign or be fired.
Shows how ruthless JI can be. I knew and respected this director while I was still at VK before pulling out when the 340s' went back to VS, and if JI can treat someone as accommodating and patient as Capt. Fola like this, then all hope is lost.
Vk's situation is actually worse than Arik's or any other airline in that part of the world right now cos while others realise the impending crew shortage and are planning a better renumeration package to keep current crews and even attract more from outside, the last thing on VK manager's mind is to approach JI to ask for any increase to current salaries/allowances, even though, to the best of my knowledge. no review has taken place in 4 years.
Everyone seems to be scared stiff and ib dread of the man, so I predict planes will be parked on the ramp in the near future due to lack of flight crew to fly them, especially captains.
