RC, yes there is no argument that pilot rosters are more complex than IFS, however most other airlines manage this just fine.
FYI G2's still to be published.
Well that's something to be really proud of! While I understand you don't make the policies that continually under-resource us, you become part of the problem when you regard it as acceptable or even normal.
The point I was trying to make was that: There are a lot of things going on in EK and all around us that effect the way the airline operates. You can't realistically work for an airline that is expanding at this pace, goes where we go, is staffed by the staff we have, and is managed by the managers we have and expect it to run smoothly. It is not acceptable to have late rosters but it is understandable, given all of the above. We are not cabin crew and are rostered in a completely different manner to them so I fail to see the comparison. I also don't think there is an evil master plan of persecution against AB pilots (but I could be wrong). I think I have a good "GRIP" especially since the wife has gone away for summer.
Just to rub salt into your wounds, over in Fragrant Harbor we get our rosters on the 15th, without fail and we have Basings. Do we complain that they should be out earlier, yup!...oh yes our Cabin Crew get theirs after us. Funny that!
Things are so bad that even this thread is late! I was expecting it yesterday. Come on guys, just because THEY are always late doesn't mean we have to be. I expect to see this thread next month right on time as soon as THEY are late, which of course THEY will be. Thank you!
1815 on the 24th, no October roster on the portal, no October roster on Evita. Disgraceful. If we pilots were as incompetent as some of those above us, then there would be a lot of bent aluminium and dead people scattered around the globe.
I guess it's just an indication of the low regard that we are held in by the powers that be.
