Feb Roster

Well it arrived on time and I actually managed to access it via the intranet without it crashing. That is as good as it got as I have never in 6 years seen such an appalling roster. 10 G days 4 PX sectors and a grand total of 78 hours. Maybe it was just me I thought , no checked the master roster of Hong Kong based 400 crew and on average those without leave are between 10-13 G days!!!

Apologies for rant but needed to let off steam as the mrs is currently out and the cat is hiding behind the sofa!!! I better enjoy the two WHOLE weeks of leave I have had approved.

Until they cancel your leave. A few guys have had theirs withdrawn already. And the leave year hasn't started yet. I wonder when enough will be enough?

Everyone going sick on one random trip would sort them.
Sadly, that cohesiveness is lacking in Hong Kong crew

Blogs,

Judging by your username ( yobbo's can never finish a proper name / city name / meal name / car name etc etc, without ending it in "sey" / "sy")
and completely ignoring your location, Im gonna bite and take a stab at the fact that you just might be based, or a commuter, and not just temporarily in "Aus"

Either way, I'm thrilled to know that we, as HK based crew, can give you our completely unnecessary g days so that you can enjoy your 3-time / mo "up and back", 81 credit hrs, and 21 g days.

Enjoy that double taxation!!!

Divide and conquer

Nice one, yi gung chek gei yuk

keep facilitating that divide/conquer, us/them mentality. You play so well into management hands...why don't you get your sweaty hands away from the keyboard, grab an nice cold one and chill?
Jeez, some of you guys are holding on too tight. So the guy got a great roster - be happy for him!
Ooops, beer calling.....

Dirty Lungs is spot on.

A bad roster is definetely not the result of somebody else having a better one.

I find it quite irritating, to see more and more guys accusing fellow pilots of beeing responsible for what is in reality the result of CX management.

RA65, A/B/C scale, basings, DFO/SFO entry, etc etc.

We need to concentrate and bundle our energy. However frustrating it might be at times, our ONLY chance is to stay united, and the best way is still a membership in the AOL. Amen.

Filmed at Rio de Janeiro's Galeao, several of the city's beaches, including Copacabana and Ipanema, as well as Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar) and the huge Jesus on the hill (Christo Redentor) are all visible.

Negative. More like TAM in SBRJ, Rio's Santos Dumont. There are also some shots of Conghonas as well.

Then again, it could be Avianca Brazil. They also operate some buses and they look just like Avianca's but with a brazilian flag on the tail.

Anyways, a bit of thread drift here.

Nothing's going to change until freighters start sitting on the ramp in outports for 24+ hours due to lack of crew.

Santos Dumont and Sao Paulo Conhonguas. But what's he doing with that stick? I was told you should treat the side stick like your mate's dick - touch it as little as possible. He handling it like it was his own!
