clarification of repatriation ticket and container timings

Lets say my last date of service is Oct 1, and I want to do some travelling in Asia, then return to Dubai and then repatriate to North America 50 days after LDS.. 1. Can I use my repatriation ticket on day 50 - from Dubai to North America- or does it have to be used exactly within 30 days of my LDS? 2. How soon after LDS does that container have to ship - i.e. could you finish up, travel for 50 days, then have the packers pack up and ship out the contents on day 50? (in rented accommodation and lease expires end Nov). 3. If my DOJ is Aug 15th and my LDS is Oct 1, then I do not get my ALT allotment on Aug 15th as I am in my resignation period. Correct?

Pretty sure they wonít even issue it if it is beyond the 30 days since LDS.
No, no ALT issued during your notice period. SRC tickets should be issued, if owed, but you may have to remind/fight them for it.

You can use your repatriation ticket up to 28 days after your visa has been cancelled.
We left about a week after my LDS.

Does anyone know anything about resignation date versus being eligible to receive the profit share?

IE: What is the earliest date you can submit your resignation and still be eligible for the profit share (IF ANY). And would that mean that you must make your last day Jun 27 so as to be be in the employ of the company on payday in June.

Thanks

I believe end of March is the earliest, or start of April to be safe. After the financial year has ended.

Bullsh1t! Itís in the employee manual. If you are employed by the company the day itís paid out youíre eligible.

You receive ONE 'move', meaning, you can use freightworks (any size container up to the dirham amount you are entitled to based on years of service etc) OR you can choose to use Sky Cargo up to a certain weight (can't remember that weight since it was not much).
You can use any company to do the shipping

Is it customary for accommodation to withhold a few thousand dirhams even if you've had the final mandatory maintenance inspection done and they say all is well?

Yes. Returned with final payout about two months after your last day

When turning in the family's passports to get the UAE residence visa cancelled at EKHQ, do you also have to turn in the UAE ID card at the same time? Or can you keep the UAE ID card while the UAE visas are being cancelled. Trying to avail of some of the UAE resident offers, but one or the other is required for the hotels...thanks in advance for any info.

Was told the uae ID cards were no longer required for visa cancellation when I left at the end of last summer. Donít be hesitant to email or call your contact at the end of service team with any questions. I found them to be prompt, polite and very knowledgeable. By far the best departement I dealt with during my time at EK. Good luck...

Our container arrived today in Aus and was unpacked. Freightworks were great.
Qantas are looking for over 200 pilots this year and they value the EK pilots experience.
Cheers

Shipping pets

Does anyone have any recent experience of shipping pets with sky cargo back home.

Iíve been quoted 27k dhs for 2 dogs back to the UK however most of this is for the airway bill preparation as the crates are too big to be classed as excess baggage. Iíve heard of people shipping to Paris as a way around the AWB issue and collecting by car.

Does anyone know the current discount to Ek staff for sky cargo shipping? Thanks

Pudding,

You can get a cargo quote via Trips, in the menu click Cargo concessions. It's not super duper exact, but pretty close. Otherwise the guy at the desk in HQ B side can help you work it out (not sure if that includes pets, but he can definitely tell you and was pretty helpful for me when I was sending personal boxes outside of my repat allowances. Be aware that animals can only go to certain airports in the Uk though

If you’re using a confirmed ticket you can take a pet with you as extra baggage. You’ll have to handle the paperwork yourself. All in it cost us 2800dhs including vet fees. Call sky cargo, it’ll take some effort but well worth it in the end. Good luck...
