Apparently nearlly all Etihad Airways pilots are from Emirates. They are being paid double what they get and their cabin crew are all Gulf Air staff.

Cabin Crew and cc management from a variety of backgrounds, including one senior manager who is ex- Qatar Airways Amiri Flight. Lots of renowned flight managers and staff ex Air Lanka too.

One senior CSD from QR is just about to join them too. I would say they are a quality outfit.

Pilots - not sure where from, but I heard LTU and Volare.

I agree that they have a quality team in place. They hired a number of very experienced ex C3000 cabin staff, I myself was hired for a cabin services management/trainer position (I had held a similar role at bmi some years back) but another opportunity arose in N America that better suited my lifestyle. I would have taken the job in a flash had it been out here, but my personal preference was to be over here rather than the Mid East.

They've had some troubles of late, and I know some people have become disenfranchised and quit, but from what I hear they are working hard to get things off the ground (excuse the pun) and
I believe they have a great team of people in place to acheive that.

Hope they get it sorted soon.
