The only solution to EK manning woes is to have sufficient crews to sustain rosters around 75hrs. Problem is, nobody wants to come and work 92hrs every month with no leave and no credit for ground duties or leave.

It would appear as though our current leadership 'team' is well out of his depth with ill-conceived initiatives and screaming rant sessions the daily norm. Highly experienced senior managers valuable input is constantly ignored, completely inappropriate management appointments made on the basis of wasta... and so the list goes on...

There has been a significant increase in the number of pilots actively considering other options in recent months and the surprising thing is it's not just Captain's who have been here for 'long enough' - FO's approaching command are looking to go elsewhere.

It feels like this is the decision point for EK - fundamental leadership attitude change, or gradual descent into disaster...
