320 nEO's to replace current aircraft...crew planning...well to plan crewing, first one has to have enough crew...that particular department has time and time again, been handed a shovel and told to widen the Panama canal...its all reactive to day-to-day changes...I dare anybody who can't understand this to just pop in and watch for a day or two, and show them how to do it properly..

In the B767 glory days, NS came back from Emirates and took over a dwindling fleet. Guys above him could not assist him with straight answers. He exclaimed over tea & biscuits (I was in trouble, again, for something trivial), "Tell me how many aircraft I have and I'll tell you how many pilots I need". Dead simple but it never, really, was THAT simple in GF. One factor in a very complex case but with the predictable and sad results of today's fallen falcon.

Have been doing a search on the T&C on offer from GF but all I found regarding basic conditions, especially in PPJN, is information from 2007. There have been any pay increase since then? With all this shortage of qualified and experienced pilots it is hard to believe that they didnít improve or at least updated the package to be in line with other players in ME. I understand that GF is not QR or EK but something must have be done to try to stop pilots from leaving.

Once again, GF left without someone at the helm. Has this airline got the worst record for CEO turnover ? Everyone in that seat not given the proper authority (stand-alone authority) to run the ship. Time to put all the twerps in Parliament in charge (they like to think they are anyway) and call them joint CEOs' ! No hope for the fallen bird unless someone wises up & is given the wherewithal to embark on decisive leadership & control.

LF, the "fallen bird" is in a spin. I always found spin recovery easy :
Opposite rudder....................stops the spin. (get it ? All you Management degree chaps we sponsored . See the correlation ?
Ease out of the dive............... That's the good bit.
Power up.............................. That's the restoration of stability.

Ok, when do I start ? Need an Office with all comms and a pretty Secretary (preferably Female).

Read in one publication that Maher Salman was CEO. Ok, not THAT one then. GF would have recovered under his style.

The Maher Man was put into place to just talk to the parliament and was the acting CEO for years. I do not think that he had a role to play in anything rather than to sign on the dotted line and receive commission. Him departing indicates that someone has stepped up to be the CEO of the ailing airline. The 787-9 will be with GF by late 2018 (will be delivered till 2023 :S ) and there is no turning back for the 2018 delivery at this point. So that is some good news.

Always a pleasure slowjet . The only complaint I have with gulf air now is that changes like this one should have been made years ago. A lot of people are excited to see some new wide body jet join gf now. We haven't seen anything WOW worthy since when the 777-300 arrived for a short time. Shame to see such low morals.

Well, until recently as a Captain you could expect BD 4,500 per month on average (second hand information). Donīt know if there was any increase on salary though.
