Then you should know it's a nasty place to be if needing "counselling" not only at any other time. There is none. I would say "counselling" is the last thing he needs at the moment.

It's best to leave it alone on Prune. This guy is in a world of hurt and the media has got pictures off Facebook and blasting it worldwide. I do hope AIPA are in contact and attempting to assist. He's going to need it.

EK care about one thing. And that's it's image. Putting Pilots in jail will create a media frenzy right across the globe. Exposes the UAE's harsh tactics as they are working quite hard on promoting Dubai as a destination.

The only difference at play here compared to the Melbourne accident is we gave a local captain involved.

As the other said we just need to respect his privacy - something the media has not done. Let's hope for his sake there is an open investigation (someone said that ATSB may be able to be involved considering he is still a licenced Australian pilot). I am sure those final seconds are playing over and over in his head as he to tries to work out why it happened.

Nasty place to be when a life is lost.last I heard was the Foreign Minister(Bishop) was asking him to get in touch. So The Govt are obviously concerned for his welfare. All our best wishes go out to him and his family. And well done CC. In the face of idiots who were more concerned about their laptops, then being incinerated, or the PAX they were blocking, need to be named, shamed, and fined.

Actually Dunda, I'd be pulling your app now my friend.
Some serious issues with the place and massive resignations weekly. It has all gone pear-shaped over the last 5-6 years.
The goaters are in serious trouble as more are leaving than been recruited. A lot are getting out even with NO job to go to. Very experienced guys and gals.
Two of my friends are in their last few days and taking a turboprop job back in Oz. One a 777 Capt and the other an A380 Capt. Now that is desperate stuff.

I'd rather fly a C150 doing circuits at Bankstown than live in that hole known as Dubai. Everything is wrong about the joint, close to Middle East Hotspots, Draconian laws, hell there isn't even any green grass there, it's just flying big jets into a fiery inferno hell hole. Each to their own, but I have never and will never consider it, even if there was no choice I would career change rather than working anywhere near Dubai.

Back to the FO. Very important he's taken care of.
In Dubai, an Emirati can run a red light and crash into a foreigner and be cleared of all wrongdoing.
The same can and potentially will happen in this instance. Emirati Captain and foreign FO. I can just see them sprouting something like 'The FO failed to ..... thus the Captain tried valiantly but was unable to save the aircraft'. I sincerely hope that this isn't the case but if you look at situations such as the Sunland executives detained what was indefinitely, I have grave concerns about the independence and fairness of what may eventuate in this instance.

Of course perhaps the Captain did try valiantly, I wont hypothesise about the cause of the crash but I am concerned that justice will not be fair.

Agreed 100% xhamster. As soon as his name was known he would have been on a 'Stop' list UAE wide. Attempting to leave would have been taken as a tacit admission of culpability. I suspect he will quietly go back to QANTAS.

Best thing for the FO to do is stay there.
It is highly unlikely that they will "jail" him at all, considering the worldwide attention the incident got.

So it would fan the flames (pardon the pun) for EK for them to display unjust treatment to staff! They have enough trouble hiring people let alone for that to be an issue!

He is probably fortunate in that he is a QF staff-member and any unfair targeting of him would/should put the QF/EK alliance under stress (if QF has any cojones).

So if they try to blame it on the FO they are thus effectively saying QF pilots are no good and QF should counter this.

Will be interesting to watch the blame-appropriation but again I hope the FO is looked-after by people outside of the EK system where his well-being is, I suspect not paramount.

I don't attribute blame, knowledge, nor wish to be involved in discussion, nor speculate re the incident.....But (to paraphrase a previous poster) "it would seem a terrible indication of how far we have let this profession and industry fall if we think it OK that a person that has been part of a terrible sequence of events that led to the unfortunate death of a human to simply be able to pack up and leave when due process such as a coronial enquiry must take place."

As a general comment, "Responsibly" is part of the job description....to cut and run is not.

It is a very relevant (and on occasions terrifying) fact that working in countries other than ones own is fraught with issues such as this!!

And that problem is not confined to just the Sandpit.

I wish all the crew a just and expeditious outcome.

Square Bear. The fact that no one died is irrelevant, they came within seconds of killing everyone on board, and had pure luck on their side that it was 16 departure and not a 34. They barely cleared the boundary fence sloping downhill..

Still, Emirates had both pilots out of the country within 24 hours so they wouldn't have to speak to investigators..

Add two more to that. High level Govt corruption and kick backs from the money spinning corporate world of particular aviation operators.
Exactly what went on with the A340 incident. Crew specifically and consistently stated they were all chronically fatigued. Apparently a specific "safety bureau" ignored such statements and no mention of it whatsoever as being the contributing factor.

3 Holer - with all due respect, given the politics of many of those countries and airlines, it is absolutely not paranoia.

However the good news is, after discussion with a bunch of colleagues at (or once at) EK, they believe the airline is sufficiently global and enough managerial and admin posts filled by capable westerners that it would be pretty unlikely that too much covering-up occurs.

Certainly they don't assign such benevolence to two very proximate neighbouring carriers but they believe Emirates to be reputable and given the constitution of it's workforce, unlikely to go too astray in this case. Perhaps wishful thinking but hopefully it eventuates this way.

What a nice fella you are Maligno grassing out an ex colleague.

The point is that it needs to be assured that fairness and due process is undertaken in any investigation of the 777 crash, particularly for the FO. The Sunland executives would choke at your dismissive 'paranoia' comment.

Hopefully it eventuates that Emirates will ensure fairness and there is every reason to assume that as a reputable carrier this will happen. I know some great guys there so hopefully all will be fine. How on earth though, in light of the above articles, could that thought classed as paranoia?

For the FO's wellbeing, could it be suggested that the sooner a big campaign is mounted on his behalf, the better; just on the off chance that things may go awry at some stage?

Just conjecture on my part, but he may have been employed in some other capacity before becoming g a cadet. The Cadet scheme is then about four years and they graduate as line FOs with around 800 hrs.

AFAIR they were never terminated as such, but it was made clear to them that it was in their best interest to leave.

"Pretty detailed for a preliminary report - and it took how long to publish."

Startling, we would still be waiting in a year or two's time if the event had have been in Australia.

The thing that stands out to me is how well the cabin crew performed in very trying circumstances. Multiple failures of equipment, non compliant passengers, smoke and fire, all the things there's no way you could possibly train for.
Yet they did their job in a cool professional manner.
I hope they all get the recognition they deserve.
The only blight on the whole event was the unfortunate death of the fire fighter, heart breaking.

That's the time it should take.

In Australia it probably takes the same time to find the causes of most incidents. Then it takes another two years of political paper shuffling to ensure all arses are covered and nobody in the "establishment" can possibly have any blame attributed, deserved or not, before anything is released.

That's why it takes two years to release a report into two aeroplanes bumping into one another in a tarmac. There are so many "stakeholders" that have to sign off on the truth first.

Dear Al E. Vator,

Thank you for the links about the reality of life in the Medieval dictatorship of Dubai for a wide cross section of humans denied their Universal Human Rights. Let us pray that the Universal Human Rights of the F/O are being defended.

In fact, have a chat to any current pilots about fatigue and what happens if they complain. Talk to the training captains who objected to their conditions and how that was handled.

There's too much adverse commentary about life and working in certain ME countries and the manner in which employees are treated and respected.

Dubai,

The only place in the world I have personally observed an airport security guard beat a downtrodden man in an airport queue with a baton - obviously a poor peasant labourer going home.

I was lucky enough to be in uniform and went straight for the officer in charge and with a bit of yelling tried to cause a bit of local shame as there was some international event happening in the place at the time.

There was no shame or compassion.

Very grateful for my circumstances and not this poor chaps.

Advice from a friend to a young "edgy" relative transiting through Dubai: "Buy and take brand new luggage because if your old crappy bags have even the smell of marijuana let alone a tiny unusable fragment in them you will be in the slammer".

BBC NEWS | UK | Tourists warned of UAE drug laws (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7234786.stm)

British tourist Keith Brown was sentenced to four years in prison after Dubai customs officers found a 0.003g trace of cannabis stuck to his shoe"


Then of course there are the women jailed for reporting rape.

Dubai - the best reason not to fly through the middle east.

Sharia law - coming to a city near you.

Our advice to the agents of our family company years ago operating in various third world countries was to always carry your passport and an open dated air ticket to some place like Singapore. In the event of a traffic accident or any other unpleasantness LEAVE IMMEDIATELY, do not even return home to feed the dog.

The problem we are referring to is the Racism of the UAE - which exists according to voluminous evidence, and is therefore a fit subject of discussion. THE FO involved, in my opinion, is going to need the good graces of the Australian Government if he is to see the light of day again, let alone pilot an aircraft. By definition, if a Dubai local was the pilot flying, then it can't have been his fault.

The inside word is "The F/O was partly to blame for the accident as he did not provide sufficient support to the Captain".

Inside word from where?

The only official word is the preliminary report. Have you read it?

I am pretty sure the 777 is not a single pilot aircraft. There is a big difference between partly to blame, and as Sunfish puts it " by definition it can't be the locals fault".

I have read the 21 page Preliminary Report dated 5 SEP 2016. I presume you would be aware the report is not designed to apportion blame or liability. There is also reference to the Final Report having further information regarding the go-around procedure and an in-depth analysis of human factors.

The internal EK report will have some differences similar to the A340-500 A6-ERG accident report by the ATSB.

The ERG crew were out of the company by now. Not so with this crew. Until you have some facts, how about not spreading rumours.

They were both expats. If this crew had both been expats would the situation be the same?

Under the radar,

And how could anyone answer that without it happening? If you think someone will get special treatment after an accident here due to nationality, you are mistaken. I say that having observed the treatment after lesser events. Are things different now from when the 340 scrubbed its bottom, yes they are. Luckily, things have calmed significantly since then. By no means are they perfect, but they have moved in the right direction.

This crew is no doubt reliving those last 30secs over and over. Posting shite here is not helping them or their families.

I would suggest, from my personal experience in the ME, that you are being a bit naive, which is surprising given that it appears you are there too! I don't think many would agree with your assertion that special treatment, in the event of an accident, is not accorded on the grounds of nationality. That's not to pre-suppose what will happen in this case, but the history is there!

It looks very much like you are pre-supposing. Have you any recent cases that support this? I have seen many recent ones that don't.

Well, certainly in this case, I hope you're right!
