hi all~!
just wondering if there's any EK aussie crews from sydney or other australian cities thinking or already have jumped ship to one of the Australian airlines due to family is based at home? I know a EK crew who joined at the same time as me now already jumped ship to Qantas... I hope the best for her. Any EK Australian crew interested in going back home, msg me and maybe we can exchange some info about the Australian airlines thanks~!

The portal says that our move to EKHQ has been postponed until the end of July...I should have seen that one coming a mile away. Then again, its better to be safe than end up a fiasco like the T5 move. I am not sure if that means that the move from CBC has been moved too.

As far as I know T5 is an airport terminal, don't really see how you compare it with EGHQ .

Any way, I also think that it's better to wait and no rush things, nothing worst than have the crew "lost in the system"

CBC at New EGHQ is linked to the opening of T3 which "may" be operational sometime this OCT !

That is correct, but somehow I believe that they could have launched the "new" CBC before and just drive the bus to the aircrafts instead of going to the terminal.

Starting the CBC and the Terminal 3 all together could add up more problems, maybe it would be easier if they do one step at the time, just my opinion .

If anyone hasn't done the tour I recomend it, the place it's massive and there will be many crew lost or "missing in action".

Yeah, been hearing that flights to LAX and SFO have been delayed by a month each. This is due to delays Boeing is facing with their galley component suppliers for the 777-200LR. Hear QR has been affected as well. The grapevine also suggests that flights to DUR have been delayed as well.

I thought Durban would be served on a 777w !
Or is it again a Galley supplier problem?

No idea what aircraft type is being planned for DUR - thought it would be the A330-200 initially then onto the 777-300ER. However, the delay about the commencement of flights to DUR is a rumour at the moment.

Durban flights have been cancelled due to rise in fuel prices.
