UKIA

Tonights aircraft will be leaving at 7pm, I beleive its the first flight that is full !. I beleive that an agreement to some oustanding issues has been agreed, and things should return to normal !.

When I finished after GRO-BGY, I asked one of the dispatchers, because the a/c was being taken to the main apron. He told me that UKIA came up with the money to tie it over. And stop it being take back.

I got told its because of a crewing issue, but to be honest if I worked for them with an 1800 bond, with the last few days problems, I wouldn't even turn up to work and say " ya job".

But of a sad few days for EMA but I think UKIA is dead in the water. Real shame, about not having any long haul flights but a few charters.

Hi

I think it must have departed, but i have just looked at EMA arrivals and Dept board, as i have a friend to collect this afternoon of a flight, and the islamabad flight is coming in this evening and then on the Departure boards there is a flight to Sharjah this afternoon ???? so have they now got 2 planes or have they leased Concorde ???? lol

I know there were talk of 2 x aircraft earlier this year, so can anyone explain this or have they sub- chartered ?

Jeez, talk about people looking for conspiracies or complications!!! The a/c went tech last night and is therefore going to SHJ/ISB this afternoon - apparently 189 punters on the flight (with only 190 seats I guess that's close to a 99.5% load factor). No way will it get back by tonight - presumably they haven't filed a delay for the return yet so the airport system is still showing the normal arrival tonight as if last night's flight went on time.

The second a/c isn't going to be here until the new year - if, indeed, it comes at all after this week's shenanigans!

Should have stuck to selling furniture
At least they're having a good go at it now, and whilst I appreciate load factors aren't everything, if recent loads are anything to go by are starting to make it move in the right direction. Better to have tried and failed than be an arm-chair airline CEO IMHO

Perhaps they proved to the CAA they have got 4000 2 and 3 seater sofa's that are worth the cash they need to demonstrate. LOL

hmmm that seems very strange "50% of the cabin crew leaving" as the crew i know are all very happy esp. the 8 day trips in the UAE & decent flight pay!
At the end of the day they are a new airline, no one gets it right from day one !
