Hey guys! Heard that an extra flight will be introduced on the following sectors in September: LOS and DME. Nice to see the EK A380 at the Heathrow roundabout!

A380

A380

I really like the aircraft, especially the electrical doors! Oh, that's sooo easy! SEP is a piece of cake!

Oh, and thanks God: most of the gossips are NOT true!!!

2 years ago the maximum loan you can get as a crew was 250,000 dirhams . Not sure if its still the same

Seen a few lucky people's roster for the month and they have 55HRS in NYC!!!!! Is this the same flight which will be converted to a 380 operation later?

Simple Question For Ek Crew Re Doj

I fly out tomorrow for Dubai DOJ is the 8th. I was wondering since its a night flight and I arrive late is casual dress OK for the DOJ flight. I mean like neat casual, dress shirt good jeans etc. I don't believe we are met by any EK staff on arrival?

Secondly, are new crew allowed use of the EK lounge...just wondering how I can spend my few hours after being dropped off?

Many thanks

Don't think you are allowed to travel in jeans! Far too casual!

Rumoured schedule changes 2009

Hey all,
The interesting chatter on the line speculates the following changes for 2009:

ATH - double daily flights (Turnaround) (Rumour)
IST - 11 X weekly (Rumour)
CGK - Daily direct flights from Oct 2008 (Confirmed) (Hopefully this means that the horrible DXB/CMB/SIN/CGK/SIN/CMB/DXB pattern is going to be dropped).
DME/LOS - additional flights to be added (Rumour)

bkkfly,

Jeans are fine. You are right, you don't actually meet anyone you really need to impress with a good suit. Just come in comfortable attire, good jeans and dress shirt are fine.

EK lounge, no chance I'm afraid.

Cool

Hi all, I must say I was really happy with choosing Emirates to fly from Dusseldorf to Christchurch (on the return with a stopover in Dubai).

Most of them were really friendly, I must admit some passengers were really anoying and I can image that's it is hard to put a smile upon your face.

The Boeing 777-300ER from AKL to DXB (which looked brand new, even the pilot was taking pictures of it) was really cool. Very nice entertainment system! Only news was not available and after the stop in SIN on the way to DXB there was no flightinfo on the screen (only the rockwell collins airshow screen).

What about the consumption of alcohol? Is there any restriction of how many botles wine or cans of beer you can get?


EDIT: It was a 777-300ER instead of -200LR

Network xpansion

Hello All,

Spoke to a Senior training captain a few days ago and he said the we want to go to LAGOS ATLEAST 2 times a day...
here are some other interesting destinations that will open up next year as per Mr. Tim Clark:

Tim Clark i.e. President of Emirates has officially revealed that if oil prices hover around the USD 105 a barrel mark, it would allow EK to restart pursuing its aggressive international expansion in 2009.

Cities that would be launched are Amsterdam, Kiev, Durban, Buenos Aires, Algiers and Barcelona.

i hope TC's words come true... interesting destinations

now how about an upgrade to the GRU ops? it's been done on 77W only a few times (probably due to lack of equipment), although it might me a bit restricted during the summer months

for AMS to materialize the agreement between UAE and Netherlands needs to change i believe, AFAIK there are 7 weekly rights for each country, KL using them for its daily pax flight and EK for the SkyCargo service

for some reason i would have thought that Algiers was gonna happen this year

and I'm sure BCN would do great, QR has been operating on the DOH-MAD route for a couple of years, with excellent results and high occupancy year-round

Hey All-
I've just joined EK and have some questions about language qualifications. I'm fluent in German, Spanish, Italian, French and Dutch. (Lived abroad a lot...)
Will telling Emirates about my languages have an effect on where I fly? Is registering that with Emirates an advantage or a disadvantage? I'm really looking forward to all the destinations EK flies to, and am not sure if registering my languages will play in my favor or not. Will I get stuck mostly flying to Europe?
Thanks in advance-
Nick

the languages you speak wont matter on the destinations you'l be getting. unless the rostered language speaker on the flight called in sick and you happen to have a flight on the same time, then you might get pulled out.

there is only one required language speaker on the flight exept on japan flights.

i guess it all comes down to having some good friends among the cabin crew members.i heard that the atmosphere is not too friendly ,but i hope that i'll meet nice people and i am actually quite excited about that .it's a whole new world for i hope it will be a good life experience
Well buddy thats pretty much hitting the right spot....Like ANY other job in the world you have the good one's and the bad one's...although if i could give you one piece of advice..."make up your own mind about ppl and flights"dont let anybody guide ur mindset about anything and you should be fine....anyways welcome onboard...have a blast!
