EK: Give up leave...don't think so...

EK is getting so desperately short that AB pilots who have leave these days are being called by FMA with a proposal: If they are willing to drop their week of leave, they can pick whatever week of leave, confirmed, next year.
I hope everybody in that situation will tell them to off.
Wish I had a week of leave to decline their proposal.

That's their best offer? To graciously move the leave you already have.

Given EK's "honourable" management and the fact that they have always "honoured" their commitments re payrises and utilities, does ANYONE really believe that they will "honour" any commitment to give a chosen week of leave next year?

Give me back my productivity pay, a decent roster and I might think about it. Please DO NOT help them. Think about the fatigue issues and the huge half year profit they made.

You reap what you sow EK. Hope no one helps. I certainly won't be helping!

There will be a big line up of your so called colleagues willing to take the offer and jump their turn to get peak July leave. Nobody cares around here. All for me! Don't hold your breath. Your best friend neighbor will not hesitate to steal your summer annual peak leave with a smile.Then he will come up to you with a million excuses to justify why he did it. Pilots=idiots

EK knows how to play the idiot pilots around here, come on!

Keep Discovering

So in essence what this means is that when you do bid for peak leave next year, half those slots will already have been filled by anyone who does take them up on this offer - nice!
