Hi , first time there....
Joined recently EY, read a lot on these forums.

I thought these guys are spoiled and they can't stop moaning and whining....

But They are right !!!!!!!!!!

I'm in an hotel for the last 4 months with no hope of getting anything decent.
I've been treated like st or worse ignored by accomodation dept and bloody kiwi SR.
I've been sent to see Mussafah dumping site full of Pakistani workers , with a view on labour camps.... Disgusting
Very safe for my wife and daughters who are supposed to come....

When SR and his mates will be living there with their families, I may consider !!!!!

Roster wise, A320 F/O's rosters are OK, Captains ones are a nightmare

A few lay overs but hotels suck.

Pay wise, well could be better, and exchange rate doesn't help much . AED is linked to USD......

Life in AUH is quite alright, but hey they have to sort out the accomodation issue, and quick.....

Angry Arrogance

To: Chandler Bing

Worshiping places either mosques, churches or temples are not disgusting. For you to say that shows how arrogant and inconsiderate you are. Please go back home.

It has nothing to do with CRM.
And...Chandler clearly implied in his post that a view on a huge Mosque could be somewhat a very negativ view. There is no hatred or fuel dumping, this is only a forum where people react to other's posts.
From what I know, if I don't mean exactly what I write and/or that could lead to misinterpretation, I edit my post

Hi there

Post corrected, as it seems to be a sensitive subject.

My reference to a mosque was mostly related to the prayers' calls, which are not always synchronized with post flight rests...

I guess angelus bells from a christian church in other countries shall as well be disturbing the same way.

When to choose between a quiet environment and a worshiping place calling for prayer 5 times a day; my guess would be that Non-muslim families would choose the first one, but I may be wrong.

As from the reactions, though I understand frustration, unfortunately, EY needs us more than ever, and will have to sort out accomodation problems, as more and more employees will have to be dealt with, so no need to express that much anger .

Ironic that US Airways and Spirit guys on here are getting furloughed in our home country due to staggering fuel prices, and meanwhile those same fuel prices are bolstering the coffers of the UAE and other gulf states, leading to the only jobs being over there...full circle globalization. It's like reverse colonialism.

It seems that EY got a green ligth from GCAA for its MFF A320/A330.
Some would have started to be CCQued. It will be a slow process of about 4 CCQ/month given the workload of the 330 training dept.

Some people wrote it would not/never happen, in the past. Fortunately, they were wrong, spreading false rumours.

Sometimes, a bit of patience is required.

Shortfuel that's great news. It would have been really dissapointing for all our guys doing the upgrade if management did not fight for the CCQ with the GCAA.

Does the EY website say that they are looking for Triple F/O's?
Might be worth a look...

Dear Shortfuel, Could you please verify your information regarding MMF 320/330. Do you have any details? No one seems to know anything about it. Are you sure there are guys ccqued at the moment? As you said lets try not to spread false rumors.

I will verify my info.
Am not 100% sure and I have edited my post in that way.
But who is/are "no one"?
MFF 320/330 will be a reality by Fall 08, that's solid info.
