No- it does lospilotos!

Things are subject to change and are getting worse. But think about the time when you joined EK. The times that you required info. If you joined EK in the last 5 years you were warned also!!

Marsellus, what more info do you want??? Everybody keeps on telling you that this used to be a great airline that is destroying itself by greed, arrogance and hatred for its employees! You still don't get it?? EK is on a downward spiral regarding working conditions! It seems that you only want to hear good things, hence you keep on asking like a child that can't understand/doesn't want to accept the truth. Obviously you've made up your mind already, so welcome to the pit. Don't complain later that nobody told you before. Confirmation bias comes to mind...

Perhaps you are confused?

When pilots who joined 6 years ago or more the company track record was, honoring the contract, good pay raises, and good working conditions. Now I do remember even then there were whiners. I remember a few in particular who complained about a 14 week bonus not being enough. There are the complaints about the uniform quality, and the loss of sandwiches. However, everyone here appears to be able differentiate between whining and the legitimate complaints. These are not small things the EK pilots are griping about they are the big important ones. If the complaints were simply about sandwiches and wheely bags then most everyone would take them for what they were. Bored pilots who need to complain. These complainers are legit and serious, and should be taken as such.

What makes you think that I am not a Pilot?
Because you attempt to construct sentences but come up with things like this
Better opportunities is subjected to individual(s) their own needs.
and also because your interests, your knowledge, your persistence your closed mindedness align with EK management. I think you are here to try and bolster a particular point of view.

I am not EK management and not trying to change the view on EK. I am reading this forum for a while now. Unfortunate there is no positive answers for those who seek info. There is only negativity on this forum. I know by personal experience in having friends in EK. Iit's not all that bad. Yes, the company has changed its course- which is not in the benefit of yourselves.

I am not shortsighted as mentioned by you. Otherwise we would be in the same uniform...

if you have mates in EK why don't you just ring them up and ask what you need to know? Instead you go on and on and on saying that everyone that has (valid) complaints is just being overly negative.

If its for you be my guest and join. Don't whine 1-2 years down the line. You have been warned.

Now stop [email protected] off long term employees and ring your mates.

The truth is ******* off long term employees is it. I have earned my seniority and experience in this industry. I am in my right to address my concerns of bullying possible new joiners.

If a newbie asks for certain info- either provide the info or shut up. There is enough warnings on this forum. Pilots should not select go- or no go based on comments of people hiding behind aliases. Although this gives some certain info on what's going on behind the scenes. Everyone is a fool to believe HR selling stories. This comes with a level of intelligence which is expected from a professional pilot.

Where do you think I have my info from. I don't need to ring them up again. Because I am not shortsighted- I gather more info and are not interested in the negative propaganda! But the choosen few here- have sufficient time- which is in the contrary of what they let newbies believe- spent so much docking time in commenting on this board... That in the end of the day the intention of this board is gone...

But don't you worry my fellow aviators. I have far better things to do than hanging around in a very negative board.. Maybe you guys should do the same and respect my posts and move on. Use your so called precious time and enjoy the day, visit friends and spent time with your family( if you have any) PPRuNe will not assist in your quest.

If so- EK would already done the appropiate and necessary to shut people up.

Good luck WITH your quest and future!

You want your posts to be respected?

Then don't blame people of hiding behind aliases while staying behind yours as well.

Then don't pretend having better things to do and keep on littering these pages.

Consistency of argumentation and common sense is lacking blatantly in EK's management, that might be the very reason everyone suspects you being a bounty castle muppet.

I'm not hiding and sure can motivate my opinion in all cases. I'm not sure what
can happen to those

Anyway- I understand your point of view. I am aware of the bounty castle phenomena. But also sure that I'm not in.

I understand your point of view.
Is the only part of that post that made any sense. Was the rest of it even in English?

Why don't you leave the advice regarding Emirates to those of us here who are in a position to credibly give it. You know, those who actually work for Emirates and live in Dubai.

There is a reason why you see so many negative posts about Emirates here. It isn't a coincidence. Choosing to only seek the positives is a strange approach and one that makes your motives appear a bit dodgy to me.

You are right! Maybe I should use a different device.. But maybe you should just fly away.. But on the other side your victim role suits you great!

Why are you here Marsellus?

To change how we see reality, or trying to teach us a new way to look at a pile of [email protected]?

Please man, change forum and enjoy life.

Still here because of the poor reactions and emotional bullying comments from certain people. Real trolling against people that do need some more info. Little respect for people that might consider EK. People are asking questions and more info and are not requesting the same sh*t reactions all the time.

Hey guys, I'm current on the A330/340 fleet in my company as a First Officer, and my total hours to date is 4200. (3000 approx on Airbus) narrow body before that.

I heard EK is seeking Airbus pilots at the time being? I've submitted my application for the A380 fleet and have been updating it since Feb 2nd 2015. Still no news except the computer generated emails from them.

Anyone in the same situation? Is there an unwritten age requirement anyone is aware of? I'm below 30, age shouldn't be the problem right

Thanks for the reply. I'm turning 26 in 2015, should i send them an email asking? Or just patiently wait. I've checked through my application about 5 times. Pretty sure i filled everything in correctly and as accurately as possible.
