Mueller joining EK

There are rumors MH CEO Mueller joining EK as Chief Transformation Officer. I couldn't find any official announcement.

CEO at Malaysian. Leaves MH in September.

Can't see EK ever publicly hiring someone with such a title or mandate. It would amount to an admission that all is not well on the shop floor.

TA is TC's replacement, and Mueller will replace TA. TC has utterly failed to be MF's successor and has turned the whole company against him. Is there any other more despised senior executive besides AAR?

What on earth is a "Chief Transformation Officer"? Sounds like they will need another table in Costa.

Don't really remember CM doing much good for the pilots in either Sabena or Aer Lingus...

I guess the 380 will have all the turns once he gets rid of the 777s. That's his thing isn't it? Bet our union reps are worried...oh wait.

Hmm, this news together with the alleged complete recruitment ban (except for pilots) might indeed indicate that EK is going to slim down it's back office staff. If that is the case, I will be all for it: no more Costa management, but a proper reduced back office structure where people actually do have responsibilities, and where you would know who to address for which problems or suggestions.
Emiratisation is a UAE thing, and for sure there's nothing CM can do about that (and I can't see why he should), as long as he can make sure that the right person is at the right place and actually DOING his/her job to their best abilities.
Don't know what his attitude is towards pilots, but worse then now is impossible. I am actually hoping he would observe and report the cancer that AAR is, and have it cut away, but that's probably some naive positive thinking...

How many times have people had the thought, "ahhhh a breath of fresh air this new person will be, they'll sort it out" and yet, as time ticks inexorably by, the same intractable mindset of reduced accountability, cultural adjustment and finally punitive measures ensures the more things change, the more they stay the same.
This guy will be do his best to make his mark until he crosses the wrong Habibi at which point he will fall into line, or leave, it's all so depressingly predictable.

Well said MM, in fact his reason for leaving MH (personal reasons) is believed to be because he was not able to put a dent into the corruption that existed. Case in point is that a B747 was purchased behind his back, under a shady deal, so they say. He finally threw his hands up in disgust and has cut short his 3 year contract by many months.

A similar fate could await him in EK. "Crud runs thicker than water."

But just ask our South African colleagues - same kind of thing happening at SAA so the idea certainly isn't unique!

Perhaps the queues at Costa will thin out when he joins...

True ?

Don t know how bad it is but EK has just put all new ground employments on hold, only jobs for "locals" are advertised.
