Sorry SyB, couldn't resist.

On a serious note, most of these unconventional brilliant ideas are spawned from current management, how either emiratis or CM going to force the direction change.

With regards to SyB comment about A380/B777 being wrong fit, need A350/B787... STC cancelled A350s, placed large B777X order, confirmed additional A380s and claimed B787-10 is not a good fit.

Now if EK want to switch A380s to A350s and B777x to B787-10s, both A & B will say WTF.

A friend in HQ sent me this. It gets better the longer you watch.

It's obvious from the video Muller won't trust any numbers he gets from Finance.
Close the door. Enjoy the flight...
Thanks for the post, a very interesting video. Time will tell!!!

Illuminating. If even half of what he says is put into practice, I can't wait to see him get hold of this circus.

Something you are either forgetting or simply unaware of, CM gave most people at MH nearly a 50% reduction in wages, a loss in many benefits and worse set of T&C'S.


Good luck guys.

The video is a great self marketing tool and he talks the good talk. He is essentially a fireman so it is hard to draw hard and fast conclusions, even if some of the buildings burned down (Sabena) or might not be in such great shape afterwards (TUI) as he most probably did not start the fires himself.

You can divide the world into people who like building train sets and people who like playing with them for a long time. Mueller has definitely been in the former category and whilst he looks a good candidate to do some necessary shaking up at Emirates, it will be interesting to see how long he stays.

Guess who's opinion will reign supreme!

Chuss Herr Mueller!

Plasticmerc, MH weren't having trouble attracting enough pilots to keep the operation going at the time.

We don't know how many routes current mgmt. is operating just to show off.

There is no need of new recruits if routes are rationalized and attrition is curtailed (by improving employee morale).

Trick is to bite the bullet and cancel excessive aircraft orders. Sooner the better. For that to happen, KBE retirement party is a prerequisite.

Downside of cancelling orders, FAA and EASA will stop looking the other way and USOAP audit results may change, downgrades and bans may follow.

Hamster wheel at full speed, not easy to jump out.

Another thing to remember is flight ops is a minority department in the group.

Attention from the new fella may be scant.

Don't get your hopes up.

Any truth in the rumor that 30 copilots (majority Italiens) have resigned a few days ago?

Ask our TREs about our new joiners. Turboprop copi now on B777. Hopelessly lost on his first sector. Overstressed and absolutely overwhelmed. (this is not about turboprop guys.. It is about training for these fellas). The only thing they got was Zero flight time... No touch and goes on the real airplane like the cadets.

So we are loosing highly experienced people and are filling the gap with 1500h pilots... IF we even manage to find pilots.
Recruitment had 16 candidates for interview... 13 failed the sim (very basic nowadays) and 3 failed during the rest... So out of 16 EK couldn't get a single pilot.
Do they change anything? Yes they do... IT GETS WORSE....

And so many more are aligning to resign....

Mr Mueller might come too late for EK...

I have said it before. I'm just astounded the amount of experience that is being allowed to walk out the door....and no one seems to stop and think ' is this a good idea'. ( Aside from the cost to replace them.)

New Captain, brand ex turbo prop FO, dark stormy night into India somewhere.....it is a receipe for the holes lining up.

Well I'll hazard a guess it's to do with those small rectangular pieces of paper that normally reside in your wallet!!!!

You need more trainers, who will train them, it's chickens and eggs.

Apart from the cadets, no one is being recruited into EK with only 1500hrs.
Requirements are:
>2000hrs on MTOW >20T
>3000hrs on MTOW between 10T & 20T

They do get extra sectors, they even advertise that to the TP pilots during recruitment.

Seems most of you guys where born flying a jet.
