Hey Gordo see what you missed?
A national pilots only B737 service importing the good looking babes from CPH with many hours of horizontal leg-over rest and recuperation in-between!
And your roster...Turn around Night flights to Kabul and Addis...plus a whole 4 tons of freight.
You could have put Cathay Cargo out of business all by yourself!
Enjoy your retirement

40&80

Thanks very much. I am and I will continue to do so. Those who shamefully mishandled my unexpected exit, unwittingly served me the lifesaver I now enjoy. My heart goes out to those fantastic people who I enjoyed flying with and are now stuck in the dreadful events of recent months. I have made the same error of judgement, twice, in my 40 year career. Once with Air Europe and the second with Gulfair. I really thought that the people I worked for were my friends.The people I worked with, by and large, remain dear friends........................Oh heavens sake, blubbing up !! Time for a Jack & Coke at the Retards Bar where, tonight, I am getting a go on the drums. Look out Ginger Baker !!

The A320 Capt was demoted for something unrelated.
+20 cabin crew already sacked, the pilots involved still waiting for their marching orders.

Couldn't agree more. Someone might miss him ! But, he was very well connected (only reason he got where he did in the first place) and I would be surprised if he didn't use these connections again. I think they call it 'Karma' ; what goes around, comes around. Subsequent posts talk about suffering. Few of us would wish it on anyone. NS will not suffer for long. With his grubby little connections, he and types like hime surface somewhere else. What is good is that GF will now benefit greatly from his demise. Lets hope the Management Team replace him withsomeone more worthy & a lot more capable. (Shouldn't be too difficult !).

As far as I know no flight deck crews have been sacked yet but our Acting HR manager(M.T.) along with the Head IT(J.Q.) are or were supposed to be investigating the employees involved. Having said that Mr JQ has already resigned!

Any info/contacts greatly appreciated.

Many thanks. Safe flights.

So now the acting HR manager (M.T.) has resigned also. Good riddance to her-she was 1 of Al Banna's gang.
