Tell Me..

Which idiot told you 2 years (or 18 months) to command???? Been here 3,5 years and no command in sight. I was told accelerated command at my interview but guess what, that changed!! There are guys here with over 15 000hrs and they are waiting and waiting and......The company does not even have the decency to say sorry guys, we know we are screwing you but this is your career plan. Careful what you believe, come here with your eyes open and your butt cheeks clenched.

goatherd are you on the bus or boeing? actually thought accel command PIC minimums was 2000hrs, have a few friends flying on the 777 as FO's ex-767-757 capts, but less than 2000hrs pic ...all have been there for more than 21/2 years with no upgrade in sight, but do know one friend, high time captain but not good enough for old DEC mins who did get an upgrade after only a year or so.....what's even more strange is that a friend was just hired as a DEC for 330, cheers..

Accelerated command is just another DEC scheme. Everyone should start from the begining. I havnt been overly impressed with the superior skills of either. It may be 4 yrs on the bus these days, but....when the A380 arrives the airbus will loose 160 captains over 2 years plus the ones leaving the company. It will come down again...

Loss of Licence insurance is 36 moths
I never noticed that one. Very clever. You think you're covered for three years salary but in reality all they give you is a bag of insects.

Now that made me laugh, good one Muttley!

A little off the topic, but .....

KAL are now no longer needing a type rating for the B744, B777, and those B737 things. All that is required now is 2000hrs PIC airline transport (widebody preferred) for the 777, 3000hrs PIC airline transport (widebody preferred) for the B744, and 2000hrs pic airline transport (have you ever seen EFIS?) for the B737.

Also press releases about EK are now stating 200 aeroplane fleet in 5 years, where it was only 156 by 2012 a few months ago.

Interesting times.

I say again....We are talking about Emirates here.


If you really want something to do, I proprose that you do some research with the clinic and find out how many pilots have called in with issues of fatigue and check the ASR reports as well. Then you may give us a "brief" brief. Lets go back as far as when they first started cataloging those safety reports. Then you may enlighten us with your findings and entertain us mere mortals with your divine intellect.

When you're done and you confirm EK pilots work harder than Cathay pilots for less money.....then please tell us what to do about it. In fact may I nominate you to contact the company with these issues and put forward your 5 point plan. Please keep it brief. Anything longer and you'll lose us laymen with yer high falluting tone and jargon.

This is a rumour network dude....what anyone says here whether it be fact or fiction should be checked against the facts. Dubai is a middle-eastern success story. These guys have done really well and so has Emirates. Their success of Dubai is linked with the success of the airline and vice-versa.

Off for a cold one....

Well Hallejulah, a post from Crinklstein that doesn't sound as though he's selling Moms Apple Pie.

Trouble is as a 'Johnny Come Lately' you have not witnessed the unnecessary and opportunistic erosion in lifestyle and standards occurring at EK in the last six years, an erosion that I suspect that you are part of (see my post 978).

Doubtless you are acquainted with your two fellow countrymen, both F/Os with EK for around three years, who have both decided that EK is no longer for them, both bypassed for command by countless B777 F/Os, accelerators and DECs such as yourself.

And I doubt that they and the other five on the 'out of here' list for July share your 'joy of life'.

Correct Don.

Heard about the 777 guys how hand-flew to 15000'. Cautioned by EGT for not following the automation policy.

Heard about the guy who asked JH if he can move back into company accom, after selling his "show-villa". The answer he got was: "over my dead body".

Standard disciplinary hearing now is:"no increment for 2 years" Now that could equate to $130000, if you have 20 years left.

Suddenly the KAL fine system doesn't seem so bad.

As Don says; Interesting times.

Sooooo check out. [email protected] !

Hmmm, why would you leave now? Would you not get the command first?

Calm down ladies!!

On a different subject .. the Porsche... about 350,000 AED but two things:

1) No use in DXB, too small!
2) It's gonna get dented, that I can promise!!

Better idea... Nissan Armada.... it's the closest thing to a battle hardened mini-truck, your Mrs will love it on the school run!!

With that user name, it shows exactly the type of the person you are, and I don't think I want someone like you here....so you won't be getting it from me.
