History shows that no matter what the contract, if SAA want their pilots back prior to their EK contract finish then they will be gone. Just ask SQ. Similar deal there in the mid nineties and when SAA said 'time to come home' they left with less than 7 days notice.
Remember EK works on the principal...' once we have them in Dubai..they are trapped..and we can do to them what we feel like" and " if you dont like it, leave"......hang on, some who did not like it left...and now the need SAA to save the day Buyer Beware. SAA guys....your EK journey will not be pleasant.....enjoy your 95 plus hours a month.
