Angry so True!!!!!!!!

Hi Guys,

Well is very simple, if you want to pay for something you have done before very bad, well this is the opportunity because been in ESJ is like jail.

Poor cabin crew and pilots are send to Iran for a period of 15 to more days out of their base "DXB" and left their to fight for their own with another circus company called Taban Air jajajaja what a joke.

About the pay, not at time at all, the salary comes in different dates maybe the position of the moon would let you know when your money will come; basic salary 6000 for captains and 4500 for FO, when in the market a 737 driver is over 10.000 and more.

Medical is a crap, they give you one only for you with a restricted network only covering a crap hospital and that's all.

Accommodation, you decide if you want a studio in a beautiful place called international city or if they give you the money captains 1000us and 700us FO
can you inmagine in Dubai living with this kind of money.

The management is from Pakistan so if you really now how this people are well so theirs nothing to say, they love money for them but when it comes to share with the staff that's a different boooogie. hooooo I forgot with a UK passport.

So my advice stay away from them as much as you can, you cant be lower in this market.

Hey Cricketer 201, Happy Guy. And those who support these "gentlemen".

I suspect you all are either involved personally with these "gentlemen" or have turned your head away from the deceipt and deplorable manner that these folks conduct business and treat their employee's.

The truth is that anyone who comes remotely close to these characters realizes that they can only do business in the areas they do because of the manner they chose to conduct themselves and their business, and frankly no self respecting business would want to be associated with ESJ. And its not for want of trying on their part!

They have had many Talented folks come thru their office's at W3 DFZA, but sadly have left not as happy as when they arrived there, and being owed alot of money!

And those employee's that are left there are either trapped their for one reason or another, or cant go anywhere else, or dont want to! But they are good people and deserve to be treated better!!

The rest is there for all to seen!!
Happy Landings.

Talking Human Cargo

Hi Human,

I dont have anything more to say, except that I completely agree with you.

As i have said it subtly in my posts before, ESJ did have some outstanding pilots and individuals who were shafted and pushed around when the Pakistani DFO and his sidekick 'Tonto' showed up on the scene, that along with a few 'spineless' indians and some cheap imports from Egypt, Syria, especially that Iraqi sales guy.

I've heard that business in on the decline in ESJ, loads are down along with increased pressure to sell charters on 'over-the-hill' 737-300's.

That place is bad news.

The Flying Circus


If only certain Authorities would have a look at this outfit ( could never be described as an operator) then surely they would feel compelled to do something about this sham of an outfit. Shamefully aviation is reactive and it will take an very serious incident for this outfit to be brought to rights.

Makes you wonder who is or isn't looking over their affairs?

Do Something at ESJ?.

Well, i'd partially agree with you.

I'm not sure how long have you been in the middle east, but from the looks of your comment, you seem to be new here, and obviously are!....

Whilst the GCAA talk of safety, from the stats, it clearly appears that Safety is not sometihng that's monitored or even reported.

In Dubai, everyone's is an expat and like several here, refrain and turn away from reporting anything they see wrong or out of place, unless if its a smudged EFIS screen, if someone dropped cofee on the seat or its loud enough to catch everyone's attention, like a tire burst(!).

Every expat irrespective of nationalities pretty much are spineless in the middle east and understandably so, they fear loosing their jobs and being packed and sent home. Some fear the penality of making that mistake, trusting laws are the kind where we come from.

All that the U.A.E care about is making money, and charging you under some pretext or the other. Each Charter flight requires you to pay a "royality". Has anyone understand what this royalty fee's means?.

Sounds like the italian mafia walking the steets in Chicago in the 1920's taking protection money and a fee to ensure they 'look-the-other-way" when you commit your crime

Whilst Eastern SkyJets would be the worst airline to work with, or treat its employees or respect contracts for that matter,they still are a bunch of lads who i'd believe slug it out in 60 degrees heat in Dubai and RAK t keep their planes flying, and that get their salary after 3 months.

As much as M-Rats would deny it, its public knowledge when it comes to the names of the pilots who choose to "NOT" report incidents or, if something goes wrong, even it its an irate passenger, or a wrong taxi procedure, or the high level of unstable approaches in a month for that matter.

It shocks me to say that i seriously wonder if there is anyone who reports incidents that arent 'loud-enough' to be heard by anyone?.

When i said ESJ still has some outstanding pilots, i purely meant only a "few" of the EX-PAK Airforce guys who fly into afghansitan. well, they know the region, they know what to expect and know how to deal with it.

I cant say that for rest of the PIA lot there.

ESJ's safety violations would come more from stupidity and immaturity. Like their Syrian or IRaqi sales guy they have who was an ex-flight attendant. Apprantly this 'felafel' overrides the flight ops and the pilots to fly ultra long flights deleting en-route way-points and FIR boundaries to save money on tech stops and fuel, all thanks to the Masters Blessings.

If you work the region, hear them on the radio, you'd know what i'm talking about.

Nuff Siad
