I love your highly imaginative forum handle, Capt Al Fakhem. Must have taken you months (four, to be exact) to work out .....

Well slap my ar$e and call me Susan, where did you come from? Is it true, another of the great Al Fakhem's here on PPRuNe????

You would'nt be aunt Josephine's wee Willy Al Fakhem by any chance would you? I did know that my great grand dad Major Cecil Al Fakhem did have a fling there in Asia for a while during the war but who would have guessed.

Good to hear from you me ol son. Stay in touch, us Al Fakhem's have have got to stick together

LMAO @ spirit and the rest of you.
Well, it seems the package may be announced tomorrow. May be too late though as a lot have jumped ship and bonds.
AD was around HQ today with some camera men in tow. A lot of people at the lobby today, too. Ideas anyone?

Hello Susan!

Oh well just another slapping good day in the pink palace I say!

May I suggest we change the menu in the canteen to reflect the flavour of the day?

Urine du jour
Fay Jinah pudding a la Mike hunt sauce
Charcoal fired Bahraini Kebabs in swiss cheese sauce
and to round it all off
Costa coffee entree with spotted dicks

Guys, MHunt has managed to sabotage all the threads on GF. It may well be a tactic by someone who doesn't want these forums to continue (as a result of his stupid, immature, idiotic, and unrelated comments). Well I say we continue unhindered by his useless views as this is one of only a few places where our collective thoughts may assist us in formulating our own views of our industry in the region.

Lots of very good information ( again I am being ironic here) recently in our beautiful GDN about these gulf air employees who are offered to have an early retirement ( on a voluntary basis ) and go with a 'golden parachute' ( =lump sum of money ). Of course you guess the business: on one side too much money given on the other not enough and of course lots of buIIshit.

Put some protesting and striking in front of the pink palace and you get our current situation in Gulf Air... From what I understood these guys were asking for: 20.000 BD plus 2 month salary per year of service plus their GOSI thing and some other perks... Of course this request has been rejected! André wants to save money not spend of course! But nobody push them to leave their jobs! but of course so much $$$ and then stay home is quite tempting...

Again I am sorry we don't have a good union to sort out things. I know we are in the Middle East... Of course no news about our package. I guess I will be called during my standby this month as so many of my collegues are heading East for better job opportunities. I can't blame them.

If the new management has not been able to root out the causes of this company's losses, then I guess they have joined the mafia or are unaware of the going ons; and in both cases, guilty as charged.

In golf, you drive for show but put for dough! and these guys are doing just that.

It's very easy to demonise the M hunts of this world but the reality of the matter is that most of you on this thread happen to be collateral evidence of no value.

Devil

You gotta be kidding Gonzola. It seems to me that you are not very aware of the situation here. Anyway, if you wish, we can lease you the whole fleet (which is falling into pieces by the way) and as you seem a very nice guy, you can also take in the same package our entire management staff starting with Mr. D, Mr. N and the entire administrative personnel. Good luck
