CB, you just have been exposed to what a BSer you are!!
I would recommend that you shut the F... Up, from now on !!! You would only prove what an idiot you are.

Stop the B.S postings. Resign from EY, if you even work there, and GET A LIFE !!!
You obviously hate it there. Dont let the door kick you on the way out !!


PS: Congrats Saviboy on the job and on exposing CB.
but again, it wouldnt be PPRuNe without people like him.

Congrats on the A320 job! What may I ask is your experience level/ type? Are you a DEC or FO? Cheers,

Let's see then since you are so clever......
As far as BS is concerned , it's what EY is all about..... thus good luck....

Get a life ???? in UAE, who do you think you are kidding ? You haven't been here long enough

Get back in the office NTM and don't get a life, people would have to deal with you.

As far as training classes is concerned, November classes have been approached with A330. Why would the A320 pilots be that pisd ?
new joiners and a few A320 pilots know eachother, so BS it's not.....

You can hide behind your office desk ...no matter what...

Being a new joiner in EY is like playing the lottery, you may be lucky and get A330 or really unlucky and have the A320. there are no rules there and Saviboy, if you get the chance to get A330, well good for you, really, it's a huge difference in lifestyle. fly like a bird or like an owl.....

Good luck

Chandler, EY employed you to fly the A320

Does your contract have a clause saying that EY cannot employ other pilots on other fleets (A330, A340 or B777) before they offer you a slot on those fleets?

Didnt think so, I therefor suggest you stop acting like a spoilt little brat and get on with it. At the end of the day if you dont like it please feel free to pack your bags and kindly [email protected]@er off.

Wow, you really fly the 346? You should know contracts in the ME have less value than toilet paper, specially at EY with the present management

EY346Driver, kindly cut down on the aggressive attitude please. Most Gulf Airlines dangle the proverbial carrot of join on the small plane and get on the bigger shinier ones as well. Of course rules get changed, people get upset Same same at all ME airlines.

Keep it calm please.

Hey Chandler, I am starting to wonder if you are working at EY at all. You are staring to dig a hole for yourself.
4 A320 FO slots were planned for Nov. (every A320 EY pilot knew that and their grandmother). The latest seniority list shows just that - 4 A320 FO newhires.
Now, if you were employed here you would simply know that. But anyway keep on trolling, it fun to read your BS anyway.... good beer material.

I am not an office guy. And as far as being in the UAE, I have been here a while. And let me tell you that, it has been by choice. (Not because I had no job or a shitty one, like you probably had)

I chose the UAE and EY and you know what, I do like it here !!!
I know, you must be really disturbed by that comment..Not everybody has what it takes to be here. My secrets are an open mind, patience and being an adult is kinda of a strict requirement..

You made it very clear that YOU dont have what it takes to be here... So you just can pack up your bags and head on out of here!! That's freedom for you...You keep claiming, there is none here. Go ahead, you can go !!
Dont forget your croonies on the way out..
I dont say it's perfect, but show me ONE place that is..

Life is too short for you to be miserable!!
Unless posting your useless rants on prune is YOUR LIFE !! Then Enjoy yourself !!!
One other thing, when you refer to EY pilots, Do not use the word inmates.

Dubia Airshow announcement

article 1 of 1 DUBAI 09: Etihad makes broad $750 million investment
Jon Ostrower, Dubai (16Nov09, 12:17 GMT, 290 words)
Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways announced a major $750 million investment package as the carrier celebrates its sixth anniversary.
The major investment covers the areas of workforce, fleet, in-flight service, as well as its planning and resourcing systems.
While the specifics of the investments were not detailed, Etihad chief executive James Hogan announced a seven-point improvement plan across the whole of the airline as the show progresses.
First, Etihad has signed a contract with Panasonic to feature the eX2 in-flight entertainment system on the airline's new Airbus A330-300 and Boeing 777 widebodies scheduled for delivery from December 2009 and 2011, respectively.
Second, the airline signed a $200 million contract with International Aero Engines to provide overhaul and repair service for 14 Airbus narrowbodies now in Etihad's fleet.
Third, Lufthansa Technik was selected to install new first-class suites on nine of Etihad's A340s. The airline is expected to announce today that its first-class cabins will feature B/E Aerospace first-class suites.
Fourth, Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies will upgrade the airline's 777 and Airbus A320 fleets, which will involve replacing and reconfiguring economy-class seating. Etihad's 777s will feature 10-abreast seating, up previously from nine abreast. Etihad is expected to announce today that it has selected the Thales' i5000 IFE system on its existing 777 and A320 fleets.
Fifth, Etihad will invest $250 million with SR Technics to provide easy access to more than 300 aircraft components at the airline's Abu Dhabi hub and key outstations.
Sixth, Lufthansa Systems will introduce a new flight-planning system, enabling the airline to reduce its fuel costs by up to 5%, cutting emissions and benefiting from a more efficient flight planning process.
Finally, Kronos will automate and optimise planning and management processes for Etihad's 4,000 cabin and flight crew.

Thanks for your info....Would they hire in A330 if your time is only on baby Bus. I have over 2500 in A320 and 0 on A330 would they give a option to new hires. Thanks again for your time.

If you are on the 320 you will work till you are exhausted. 70-90+ hours, mostly night turnarounds
Is the fleet understaffed?
