Affirm 747fanatic. PH-MCN was delivered to MidEx at AAN from CGK by a Martinair crew on April 14th. She underwent an FC check over in Jakarta. CN landed at around 4:15 pm.
This brings an end to Classic operations within Martinair Holland (aah good old times ) but hopefully we'll see her going strong for years to come!

Midex Chaos

The COO Abdul Saboor has quit. The only A300 TRE/TRI has quit. I do not know how long the rest can take the abuse they are handing out. Last I heard no drinking alcohol in your "own" apartment. Oh and the contract has been changed to exclude the 30 day vacation.

Not much to recommend here guys.

here vs there

Respectfully. What difference does it make where I am? What is...is and everyone knows it shares it. If you want to know something ask.

Oh yes and the amount of spy vs employee at Midex management and UAE in general is repugnant.

Mr. Saboor was to have been the COO. Dave McLane (ex-Focus) will be heading up the flight engineer side of things.

Supposedly the owner of the company has reneged on benefits and reduced others. This is why Abdul left. Anyone going there get it in writing and watch your six!!!!!!

Capt.Saboor

What a pity that Abdul Saboor seems to have bad luck with start up's.
I met him few years ago in Bangkok where he was the DO from Thai Pacific Airlines (unfortunately they never left the ground).
He is one of the nicest and most competent people I ever met in my career.
I wish him good luck and all the best

Good Question!

Probably nobody at the moment...I hear the GCAA are about to put the brakes on because everybody in management that knew anything about flying airplanes has left. They are advertising for an A300B4 TRE/TRI at the moment. Not to many available on short notice.

Any change here??

Just wondering if anything has changed at Midex. I know they have had a hard time finding/keeping people already. I believe a month or so back, pay was increased a small amount, but it appears, other items may have gone away. I would be interested if anyone has any current news. Thanks.

I believe Midex are still recruiting crew for both types and also looking for Loadmasters/schedulers/destpatchers. Does'nt sound like downward motion !!
