GT, I'm trying really quite hard to not sound nasty about this but..... I think you maybe need to open your eyes a little.
The next time you get a thick brown envelope to either take down-route (usually LOS) or back to Vatry have a look in it. Southbound are usually pictures of Benjamin Franklin & North-Bound such goodies as a pair of Nigerian passports (the gentlemen whose pictures were in the passports were not on the aircraft) with a note to Fat P. asking him to have them stamped with entry & exit stamps.

I think it's probably more a case of the French not yet being aware of anything untowards happening on their pitch. After all, the article in the 'paper was about the dealings in the Congo, not from France.

Erm, if it's so good then why, as recently as 09 August were you looking for another job? (With SIA cargo after you hadn't got one with Saudia)

In general yes. Shall we gloss-over the F/O who was, erm, 'let-go'?

It's interesting that you should say that given that you're flying a Zim registered aircraft with a Zim licence. I bet the CAA in Harare would love to see your comments.

Erm, so, can you please explain your reasoning over stating that Avient in the Congo is not the same as Avient from the UK (as of course they're not 'from' Vatry which is just a convenient spot for the aircraft). IMO it's bizarre that you say that and then in the same sentence confirm the same owner.
So, (supposedly) two companies, both called Avient, both owned by Andrew Smith but they're not the same company. Hmmmmmmmmm. To quote a rather poor joke, if it looks like dogsh*t, smells like dogsh*t & tastes like dogsh*t it's probably..... dogsh*t!

AMG are the sales agents for Avient in the UK , all they do is sell the detaintions Avient fly in Africa , they also represent other airlines , Avient from what I can see operate these days to the law since they have their own DC10 , but it was only a few years ago they were also involved with the Tristar freighter with no cargo door... how that was legal I will never know , still flying in BCAL colurs ,had a mishap in Mwanza I remember.. also still has biz calls at the front and no 9G net
