Kias and heards of wilderbeast

Well after crying into my firkin beer those two comments about the deposit on the Kia and Helen D's CC stampede to HR post have now cheered me up.

Good job some people still have a sense of humour even in this dark hour

The pay review is not released yet. But no matter how bad it appears I am sure it will be cost neutral just like the other pay cuts, oops, adjustments have been.

EK will just continue to lower the bar to fill the seats. Now Qatar and EY pay more than EK. Why come to EK and get shafted? Only those that can't, will come. God help us all!

I just invested my profit share. That notebook (aka profit share) that was in my pigeon hole got the BBQ burning really well!

Ha ha oh my god what complete and utter Wars.... I guess sponsoring F1, Real Madrid, Arsenal, tennis probably even the friggin world tiddlywinks championships is more important than morale of the real workers on the pit face.

But hey on a brighter my new uniform came yesterday! Along with name tag. But they misspelt my name, I requested "Gullible Twt", but apparently we seem to have almost 3000 colleagues of said same name! So I took my second choice of "ALReem Meharder"

The truth ladies and gents is we can bitch and moan till we are blue in the face, the dividend will always be paid to the "shareholder" first. And with the runway closure next year it will be another disappointment next year. The only option is to find alternative employment! Easier said than done.

I'm off now to write a very strong letter to my Unn..sorry seven days

As long as there are desperate souls willing to come to an airline that is now a shadow of its former self, then nothing will change. Each time they have taken something away, people keep sending in CVs. Why? Because they are coming even bigger POS outfits.

Pay for your uniform? Sure, just give me a job.
Pay for your meals? Sure, just give me a job.
Pay for your PPC? Sure, just give me a job.
Pay for your training? Sure, just give me a job.

This generation of pilots hasn't had to earn anything so they have no idea what they are worth.

250 hours? Come fly a 737, but you'll pay for everything.
Could I please, boss?
Sure, that will be a hundred bucks for the privilege of interviewing with our new concept airline where the customers AND the pilots pay the management salaries.
Oh thank you kind sirs, I love airplanes.

I really don't understand how any self respecting professional pilot could apply here now. Wait, there aren't any of those left. That explains how we got here.

I am getting sick and tired of hearing about their rising fuel costs, is anyone surprised oil is expensive, budget accordingly !!! It will be a major cost next year too, no doubt the excuse will be wheeled out for its annual airing again, same time ,same place.

The real truth is the days of the profit share are over, this company never came out of "milk jigger" saving mode. Excess profit will be paid to the government and reinvested by the company.

There's a silver lining to everything I guess. Just got off the phone from a mate who just arrived in from a flight.

Gloom all around except one our finest from Newcastle, big smile on her face so he tells me this is how the convo went sitting beside her on the bus.

Capt: What are you so happy about?
GR1: I had a final warning two years ago! Yippee! So now it's cleared. Yippee
Capt: So
GR1: so I got two weeks off work bonus more than you lot! Yippee
Capt: huh
GR1: yea I dialed2 for a total of 13 days off and got an final warning letter - no pay raise, no bonus for two years. You guys got the same punishment for pitching up for work ..ha!

You can't make this Shiite up.

Never in the field of commercial aviation..

Never in the field of commercial aviation was so much owed by so few to so many.

Yet these few choose greed over appreciation, opportunism over loyalty.

Everyone who works for this organization needs to remember: No matter what you do for this company, no matter how much of your personal life you sacrifice for these few, your last interaction will be one of rejection.

Our fuel bill increased by 15%
More aircraft flying more routes, surely an increase in the fuel bill is to be expected

Every employee worked smart and doubly hard
Thanks, don't expect that in the future...

We must invest to ensure our business is future proof
How about investing in the morale of your workforce

I'm aware of your herculean efforts last year
We are truly screwed for next year and thereafter, even Hercules wasn't good enough..

I hope you feel proud
More like cheated

The profit share target for the new financial year has been set at Dhs 4.255 BILLION. Is this realistic?
Good luck with that

Together, we will continue to shape and share our world of success
Please note, "our" does not include staff working at the coal face or in the salt mines...
