An ex EK Captain resigned via an ASR numerous years ago. It was his concerns that led him to follow this unusual but effective procedure.

It doesn't matter particularly who you address it to, so long as it is dated and then gets distributed to you C Pilot eventually.

Send it to your Chief Pilot if you want to keep it as streamlined as possible, as you will receive a formal acknowledgement from him anyway.

Send your resignation letter to your Chief Pilot. cc your Fleet Manager or is it Manager Fleet? Anyways your resignation will be acknowledged from the date it was sent, giving you 90 days to escape... The EOSB dept is by far the most efficient and helpful dept within the company.

It is fine to back up the date to 3 months if you give more than three months initially. At least, they were flexible with me. Told them a date, then said wanted to leave earlier, no problem. Nice people in the EOS team. Do not be shy to give more than 3 months notice, not that critical.

Has anyone recently had their ek logbook stamped?

Questions:

Has anyone recently had their EK flight time stamped?
If so who did it?
Will they stamp the print out from the FOIP showing flights?

Any relevant information would be appreciated.

Does anyone know if you are in your three month resignation period, and are due ALT and SRC tickets during that time, will they still be issued to you? Thanks in advance for any info.

I've never heard of there being a problem with that - should be issued as normal.

Double check that you can still do deductions; iirc you can still get your tickets but they may be pending until they're paid for at the counter.

Your SRC's will be credited - though you will probably have to ask for them. ALT's will NOT - I argued that I was still employed but to no avail. Same for things like the refurbishment allowance etc. Once you have resigned your entitlements disappear.

Is there anything stopping you booking your ALT before you submit your notice, with the aim of using your ALT during your notice period?

Emma Royds, if you are already into the next year then your ALT will have been credited and available on TRIPS. It is only and issue if you are IN your 3 month notice period and your anniversary (day they credit the ALT) is during that 3 months.

the important bit is to do all bookings before you send your notice, whether that's tickets, cargo concessions, etc. The second they have your notice none of that is available so easily.

I booked an SRC and used it within my notice period. And bear in mind they do not honor your ALT after the 30 days after LDS (which I think is complete BS)

Provident

When you give your notice do they and you stop paying contributions into the Provident Scheme immediately?

Can it be "frozen" or given a guaranteed value at some date before your LDS??

I've got a lot in there and I don't want to lose 0000s if there's a financial crash or a war in my notice period.

I can ask Mr Nick but just curious to know real experience.

I don’t know the details for leaving but you can always switch the funds into a cash fund of your choice in advance
