Etihad follows major carriers best practice again

Hot off the press :

Now as a pilot of theeee national airline of the UAE you are allowed to request 1 day OFF, up to 3 in a row per month (all requests deemed as requests and not guaranteed).

Etihad again follows general best practice of the major carriers of the world !?!?

Sorry CX, SQ, BA etc. - can`t beat that.

Good old 4 in a row R.I.P.

Best system in the world; Lufthansa, bristish airways and KLM have contacted EY to get this new advanced technology called "Scw Pilots life cheap system"

As a major (And National) airline, Ey cares about its crew and you are now able to bid for (hold your breath!!) only 3 days off AND/OR 3 days leave OR 1 requested flight; Dont forget to say thanks at the pumpet road show!!

Like every month you will get a fair roster sending people to europe when they want to go to Africa or you will get 3 FRA, or CDG, MAN, MUC in a row when some guys are asking for only one of them and never get it!! Also make sense to fly back to back to the same destination with minimum rest at base...

Many airlines are using AIMS and pilots are able to built 95% of their roster per month without crying to get one flight ; Why everything is always so complicated and mean in EY

IF you don t know are to run a national airline at least you can try to copy other airlines (have a look few miles away, it s a good start )

Hey jet-lag, must have come back from the 10 hr FRA or from the 11hr JNB - still jet lagged ? Sorry couldn`t resist the word game.

YES it is true - check NTC !

It`s being sold as roster request enhancement.

(Definition of enhancement = increase, add to in quality or value)

Rumor has it, they have to find a way to get rid of all the accumulated leave. Genius AH with the help of Flt Ops said to themselves, if the is want to have more than 3 days OFF in a row, let them use up their leave!!!

Enhancement? What a crock of s--t!!!
1 flight request a month.
3 days off maximum request a month, so those will always be between 2 ULRS. Thats why they changed it from 4 to 3.
Where is the swapping system that was promised for May 1st?
Kinda makes you miss old NB.
Mmm....Seniority doesn't mean anything, the pay is crap, I get to look forward to Minsk, a whole 1 week bonus, Hi ho, hi ho its off to Emirates I go.......

PS. 18 miles "Gear down"

Expect nothing from these clowns!....the Ops Mgmnt is a joke, it is chaotic crisis management and is being run by people who are out of their depth!

Sounds like the Doc might suddenly get a whole lot busier!

Another change.

The latest revision number 40 000, allows 4 days off as a single request. It seems like the flap1 at 20, and gear down at 18 helped somehwhat!

Just think what we could get if we flew 6620 nm to Syd with the gear down!

Back to 4 days off

You don't possibly think it is because none of the heros wanted to face the question at the Captains Arms? (Sorry, I meant Roadshow!)

Accomodation again and again

You have been allocated a villa for your family in Al Raha

Don't celebrate, it's only for 1 year then you have to pay for it

So convenient to say it after all moved in

Maybe the clowns don't have the balls to say it face to face before......

Best practices again

Remembers Al capone's practices , or Neanderthal's ones

Where these so called managers and HR did get any degree from ??

Time to check the diploma's .....????? Fake ???????

I just heard this about Al Raha Gardens's Villa, lease valid for only one year and then they, the pilots, must pay the difference! 250000-160000 (f/o/case)= 90000 to be decducted from second years salary

Mussafa Sunshine Towers, has never ever looked so good before.

ITS a time we rock the boat .

Like the colleagues said , close doors late , LONG final F1 w/G/D .
UPGRADE or just simply FORGET to request the 20 wheel chairs you normally get to make the turnaround longer.

MACH 80 Turbulence all the way
