Yes it is true, but there is a bit more to the story.

An A380 FO decides its ok to head home, from the ME to another part of the planet no less!!!!!, when he is supoosed to be on STBY. WTF!!!???

Any window seat on an A380 in any airline has to be one of the most coveted jobs in the industry at the moment, and this guys has tossed it aside as meaningless.

Sorry fellas, with acts of madness like this, WE are our own worst enemy, not CMB ground staff or any management.....

Take a chill-pill please Sonny - as the previous poster says - there's probably more to the story than a rash decision from a coveted window-seater on the 380. No reason to rise in self-flagellation against the entire pilot body. Or to start drawing parallels with a completely unrelated issue in CMB.

Thanks anyway 4holer, but I'm comfortable with my viewpoint on this.

Even if there is more to it, and you are right, there probably is, the fact is he really blew it big time. In the eyes up top we look like complete fools and as such we get treated that way.
Guys like this don't help us in our effort to be viewed and treated as a group of respected professionals.
I not suggesting the whole pilot group acts like this, not at all, but his action effect us all and are difficult to defend.

As far as drawing II's to CMB, I cant see how I did that.
Some posters on here have alluded that the CMB ground staff are the enemy and need punishment.

Sao Paolo

Why stop GRU? That flight is max zero fuel almost every day. If the cabin isn't full, the belly is.

India's second-largest private airline Jet Airways has cancelled nearly 120 flights, following a protest by hundreds of pilots who reported sick.

So nice, wish it was EK....

Why, what airline really gives a flying **** about it's employees over their own profitablility? None, nada, zilch!!

What a sad thread this is and is just indicative of the way life has become. Disciplined for being photographed and for not wearing a hat. Who would want to work for a bunch of shysters like this?

Heard a strong rumour that some boeing driver either got the sack or was demoted after being dobbed in(by who?) for listening to his ipod(using mini speakers)on the flightdeck.

Anyone care to confirm or deny this?.

Dunno, but thre was a guy a couple of years ago who narrowly avoided same (wouldn't avoid the bullet now, for sure) for watching DVD on the flight deck...on his own.

How professionaly stupid do you need to be?

Gordo,

Last year an F/O failed his final line check having just joined the company from 'over the Pond' for listening to his iPod whilst over Europe on the way to the UK.

Maybe this is what you might have heard about.

Heard that a T7 injured a ramp agent while manoevering on 1 eng.
The rumor goes on about the skipper being sacked. Is there any truth to that?
Nothing in the weekly safety rep, but then again they wouldn't dare publish such a event. No one would shut down a donkey no more .....

Someone knows the true story?

Let them continue the sacking.
No matter what their aircrafts will stay on the ground sooner or later, and they will push the crew to the unbearable limit and beyond safety down to GF sad ending......
Leave the boat before it's too late guys.
