Etihad Late Rosters, again.

Why can't they EVER produce a roster a day or so early or very rarely on time? It's a scheduled airline with apparently enough crews, GET ON IT!!!

4 hours 52 minutes and counting until it's officially late, lets see.....................

Lets see if the rosters are out first thing tomorrow. That means they were ready on Thurs but just weren't published. Why? Wouldn't dare do anything early would we. Typical.

Of course not. That might be seen as sympathetic to staff and their families!

Still nothing at 0820/25th. Guess that proves it wasnt ready Thursday.

I can understand that there might be reasons it is delayed, but no apology or explanation is what makes you feel used/abused.

Good late rosters are much better than an on-time roster that's been screwed with like we get right up the road from you. Trust me.

SG and AH have no clue about crew planning, DP used to be one level headed person in crew planning, but now DP is doing B777 rosters, that leaves the A330-A340 fleet left with some inexperienced clown that has never done crew planning,..thats the sorry state of affairs in crew resources..all inexperienced people in crew planning..wat do u expect...morons

Rosters were almost ready on Thur night...late night, yes the new lady tried to get them out early and then guess what? The usual happened, they changed things so she had to back track today to get things re done.....it happens in many companies, rosters are late not because of the person that does them but because of the aircraft planners, commercial, training department or someone else. Don't be too quick to always blame the planner, she may or may not be the guilty one.

I dont know about the reasons of the late schedule display on our systems.

Yet I know one thing : the ccq planning for 16 sectors from 330 TO 340 LAST AROUND 3months.... Yes 3months to go from 330 TO 340.

I think the emirates guys wont believe that info concerning Etihad but its simply the truth!!!!

I would say that if you don't want to live in Abu Dhabi then perhaps Etihad might not be for you?

If you think itís absolutely normal to arrive in the office at 9.30 instead of 8,
If you have a voodoo doll on your desk named pilots,
If anything with more than one variable is having your unicell brain to go in catastrophic failure,
If you think that if you donít have 35 coffee breaks per day you will die,
If you have absolutely no interests in managing others people life in a decent way,
If you think everything in aviation is about last minute,
Then you have what is happening every 26th or soÖ

I hate to say it but Etihad sounds like glorified contract work, although you do get to fly top notch equipment. The hassles you okes get from your company is unreal.

Good luck mates, and maybe I'll join you one day.
