Bert and Ernie

Metrojet was a great place for pilots. Things have changed since Bert and Ernie started running the show. The CEO is under the impression that these 2 muppets are doing a great job. In reality they have isolated 99% of the pilots into a ever growing disgruntled pilot group.

Ofcourse there are some who for their own good will bend over to take anything from B&E. Metrojet 'wanna-be model' somehow thinks that B&E are the second coming of Christ (no offence to my religious buddies). He is seen in the office almost every day trying to scratch a scrotum or two to get his command.

More to the point, B&E have recently been exposed in doing a few things that CAD will not be happy about.

Ernie (the Deputy CP) with less than 500 jet time has somehow got his hands on 4 bars. He has also been caught flying a G5 from the left when he doesnt qualify for a command position nor has he done any command training. All this while Bert (CP) sits on the right dreaming of becoming a training captain.

These 2 have not treated the pilots of Metrojet with any respect. They are corrupt and incompetent (anyone care to contribute on why Bert was kicked off the BBJ). Lets hope that the new DFO kicks these 2 fools out. Bring back JC I say!

Would anyone like to pass on today's email that exposed the antics of B&E to CAD?

CaptainProp,

Yes, Bert & Ernie are involved in recruiting along with their sidekick who does sim support.

The DFO should take over recruiting. This way the will not be any nepotism with recruiting.

I am surprised that there havent been many comments on here about the latest antics of the CP and DCP. I know for a fact that 99% of the pilots are rallying support to get rid of B & E.

These two are a classic example of "management" pilots abuse of power.

Hopefully Sir MK will do something about this.

Jet Aviation, Tag, Sinojet and HK Jet would all be relishing this instability in Metrojet.

Watch this space.... more pilots leaving for the above mentioned companies due to their treatment by B & E.

Months? More like years!

I'm told another long time pilot and a senior engineer resigned last week.

Last one out switch the lights off!

So these pilots and engineers leaving Metrojet, where do they all go? do we have any facts on this? Obviously not all of them will find an available spot with Jet Aviation or Tag Asia?

Its time for some unity within the pilot group if Deputy Ernie and then Bert are to be kicked out.

Suggestions (please feel free to add) to remove Deputy Ernie:

1) Do not answer any calls from him.
2) Do not respond to any of his emails.
3) No communications with him at all.
4) Let DW know your concerns about him and Bert.

ALL queries should be directed to DW thus by-passing the muppet show.


This way Berts workload will gradually increase. DW will realize that Ernie is truly a muppet and hopefully replace him/them.

Metrojet revisited

I paid a visit to metrojet last week. Lots of new faces in the hangar.

It seems the new upper management is now driving out the old middle management level by offering them contracts with lower positions or making their jobs impossible.

Almost all the experienced licensed engineers have gone and are being replaced by HAECO technicians who dont know a Gulfstream from a bar or soap!

The plan is to bring in several very experienced and qualified expats to oversee and sign for all the work. But potential candidates beware! You cannot be everywhere all the time and you will be pressured into signing off work you have not seen.

I wonder if Sir Michael Kadoorie knows what Mr Naf is really up to? Or is he still being fed BS by his trusted board?

MetroJet

Oh dear it all sounds a little upsetting with the current regime. EXPATS being recruited is 100% in the middle management and senior levels.
Spreadsheets and pie charts will be the new focus.

Very sad indeed. It used to be a great place to work.

Metrojet in more trouble

More problems for Metrojet.

Yesterdays South China Morning Post listed them as the subject of a legal proceeding initiated by Head Win Group, the owners of a Manx registered Global XRS.

I wonder what went wrong this time?

Also hearing that the Swiss consultant/directors son has been employed in the accounts department.

No nepotism there then!

Vice-Chairman Metrojet

Dear Sir

Could you please explain the recent placement of a certain "apple-polisher" who has recently got the nod for the 550?

This decision proves that spending time under the MFO's table pays dividends. Having less than 10 hours jet command does not justify his placement on the 550. There are guys more deserving that have much more jet command that should have been given the opportunity.

Sir MK believes that the company should be run with honesty and integrity. Please run this company as Sir MK wants it to be run.

"Muscles" really has proved what kind of person he is. Way to go buddy!

Are there any updates about MetroJet? I see they have an ad up for a Legacy FO.. is it still going downhill? Do they upgrade from within, or is this pretty much only going to be an FO opportunity?

Not much info out there about them.

yes they upgrade from with this typically takes 2-3 years, and you need 4000TT aswell for command, living in HK is not everyones cup of tea, so you got to makes sure HK lifestyle is what you want.

Thanks. I was tossing around the idea of visiting HK this December, and maybe swinging by the MetroJet office.

If anyone who currently works there could PM me, that would be much appreciated!

School Bully

It would appear the deputy maintenance manager is a bit of a bully. One of the long time stores guys didn't bow to his pressure and the poor old Eurotwat lost it! Grabbing the local employee by the collar and threatening him.

I'm told this was not the first time he has had a hissy fit.

It seems that a few of the EuroTrash in the management have a "dark" history.

Join at your own risk!
