We manipulate your holidays, roster, legality, terms and conditions at out pleasure. We lie to you are irresponsible, negligent and treat you like iditots. But we pay you on time, yeah, guess you are right makes me feel all warm and fuzzy

So,whats going on.

Rosters out on time, got the bids that I wanted and not in top group either, less than 90 hours (just) for the first time in months, nothing in open time.

Dump the DECs and a get a pay rise that's more than a Band Aid gesture and this job could be heading back to where it was.

you serious!!

Another 4 weeks of manually manipulated rostering, Sim supports are getting rediculous, guys in the box one FO supporting a Captain and next door one Capt supporting an FO...now that's utilising the resources.

And what's with the rosters that have 5 days off then 1 turnaround before going on leave the next day....what a load of S#%&!

Long Range Ed's newsletter on the portal just out. it states that the "Printed" version is at the moment the first copy to be published at the moment, so if you want it early, get down to CBC However, it will be changed by Mercator to be the online version being the first published in the near future, whatever that means.

NO EK Rosters Yet!!!!

Well here we are the 25th of March and none of the EK line pilots know what they're doing next month. It's an absolute disgrace.

It's all very well Mr Ed sending us emails with shallow apologies but that's not good enough, get off your back side, kick some butt and get it sorted out.

You know dam well Mr Ed this would not happen in any other airline where the pilots have some sort of representation, just like the one you flew for!!
So why let it happen here?

From one very p!$$@d off EK pilot who wants a life!!!!

Devil

It just disqualifies each and everyone from ED, AS, AAR, TC up to the owner wearing a dishdash. Just wait until they'll blame the non-achievement of the target on us ......
Lack of personnel has never been the fault of employees, but a result of cloak-management. Anyone missed the 35xx numbers on the flightplans? That's what payed the butter on the bread before and it's only due to a monster cock-up in recruitement that EK can't even think of planning additional profit generating flights.
Notwithstanding professional planning of the few guys left on the payroll.
Well, dear managers, the whole world knows it and by poorly covering up your mess you only lose what little respect the aviation world might had left for you.
Please dismantle the fence on Jumeira Beach, so that we can get back the only nice thing around Dubai and raise it around the airport, so it will cover the embarrassement.

They must really have their backs to the wall if the rosters are this late. Busy trying to squeeze every last minute out of EK pilots.

You must have just missed them mutts. They ended up on the portal a bit after 8pm. Third month in a row my roster has no changes on it. Hope that continues.
