With so many Pilots leaving and a recruitment ban, how are they going to crew it?
The usual way they do these things close a base and force the unfortunate crew to take the new base and then declare it a voluntary move.

You never know, Milan Embraer guys and gals might get the now-standard Eastern Airways Voluntary Change Opportunity. One can only imagine their excitement at the prospect of being retrained onto the J41.....

I don't think that it is particularly fair to say that Eastern is OK, because other people are (potentially) losing their jobs and that everyone should be treated in the same manner as Eastern staff, in order to keep their job.

There really ought to be a situation where a company can be run profitably, without treating the staff like scum. If treating them like scum is the only way to make money, you haven't got much of a company, have you?

I think it is an adaption of the coat of arms of Burgundy (the region where Dijon is situated).

Was that picture taken by a very short person. Or was it a collapsed flight crew when seeing their wage slip whilst on a walk round.

The crew had just stood up, having said their evening prayers towards Humberside.

Hmm, apparently HOP! is axing its thrice daily flights on the route, otherwise it would not make sense.

It's a subsidised route, with the subsidy paid by the local authorities on the Lorient side. Eastern is putting a considerably smaller (and cheaper) aircraft on the route than HOP! had.

The route previously fed into the Air France/HOP! hub in Lyon and offered connections to quite a lot of other destinations. I don't know whether Eastern has any kind of interline agreement with Air France or whether it will effectively only be local traffic from now on.

Taken by a certain ex-management pilot probably.

Well the latest shenanigans are that ABZ based cabin crew are getting a 2500PA allowance for living in ABZ apparently to retain crew, This isn't the issue, the issue is roster stability and being spoken to badly and treated with the utmost disrespect by that oxygen thief excuse in NCL & HUY. This does not address the issue and is alienating non ABZ crew. Yet another example of mismanagement at EA. Well done!
