Generally we all believe that EK recruitment do a great job considering every aspect of your experience and personality before joining.
The problem is that once you arrive in the Middle East you know ‘nothing’!

Traditionally experience within the airline has only been measured in terms of kilograms.
Consideration of the number of sectors flown, T/Offs and LDGs completed, ETOPS twins vs quads, stick time vs bunk time, merit vs seniority, and age vs maturity, have never really played a part in any upgrade deliberations.

I have no objection with considering the 35 year age limit, but believe a more holistic approach to respecting experience should be conducted, and a more robust policy created that doesn't change every five minutes.
