Direct GF New Package...Sierra Alpha Lima...
Captain Al, why are you freaking out re implementation date? Hasn't it been obvious for November and backdated for June?
On another note, apparently this summer has been the most profitable by GF to date. So a little win by the optimists.
I am glad GF is under so much scrutiny, more so right now than anyone else in the ME. The bad apples tend to cower away in some dark corner when every one is watching.

Sal-e me "freaking" ????? I'm too old and too well versed in the GF ways to be "freaking" or even remotely pulling a sweat my dear chap.

Ahhh ignorance is bliss

They will surely know about it if they do not implement their word....in the form of an irreversible mass exodus the likes of which the world has never seen. Even with the new scale, only a handfull had withdrawn resignations.

Ahhh, Sal,

staunch stayer = bond period not up = financially-challenged = compliant workforce. (My #204 refers). Good luck with the Golden Falcon.

Do I want to mix it with you guys at GF? No thanks - sufficient challenges where I am.

Wimp? Moi? Non.

You GF boys are like hungry little birds that just had their feed, judging by the lack of squealing complaints hounding this entire forum over the last half year. Wonder if the noise will come back in November when promises are broken.

As an otsider, I cant understand why they are trying to hang on to the scum that are leaving. Disloyalty etc.
World -class airlines like Singapore do not take back people who leave for other airlines due to disloyalty, slides etc.
GF is obviously not ready to be a world class airline!!

I believe that its being disloyal while working for your present airline and not giving 100%. It would then be preferable to leave the airline.

If then one finds that the "grass is not green " in the other ailrine, then it is a testament to the old airline that it is indeed a place to work for and that if people are returning to work with them again , the others who are cribbing should perhaps weigh their decsions a bit more dispassionately..

Not again this loyalty crap ! What about loyalty when the company does not need you ? Not even 3 months notice will be respected; you'll get your money and out you go !!! So, who's not being loyal then ?
I used to work for SIA, left, and have been again offered a job with them, recently, after just a couple of years.
Check your facts gimmesomevalium and get real !!!

Can clearly see that you´ve never been related to the aviation industry or if you are, you are lacking a lot of experience my friend. Keep up with your loyalty for the company until they decide your services are not longer required here and then, just wait and see how they'll kick your butt out of here without any hesitation nor loyalty for you, despite you might have worked for them for several years. Believe me, you don't want to know how it feels but don't judge pilots for leaving the company for greener pastures since after all, money talks, doesn't it?

LOYALTY

Just take a look people how they rewarded Rad's 31 odd years of loyalty to this damn airline. Dont talk crap, they dont give a rat's arse about their staff. The Brit Club placed a condolence add in the GDN for Rad and what did GF do.................. absolutely F*CK ALL, the guy dedicated his whole adult life to the service of this company.

Gulf Air has "Previous"
A GF L1011 British Captain was terminated minutes before his UK Brain tumour operation... and the surgeon advised by GF that he nolonger worked for Gulf Air... not now covered by insurance... the surgeon was to pick up his fee direct..Gf was out of there..for the record this Captains widow does not like Gf much either.
I do not suppose for a minute GF have upgraded their insurance cover or learned anything from Rads death...probably unaware he has died if you ask their spokesman.
