On the other hand I burned up my outstanding sick leave. Oh, and leaving was the best command decision I ever made.
Why it was the best decision ? What were the issues you faced ?

Seems like things are looking good for me and I be making a move. Now question. I know we got a 30 days notice period. Does this apply to any calender day. So lets say you resign on the 15th of YY and say last working days be the 15th of ZZ. Or should one wait till the end of the month and resign. For full pay cheque.

No need, look at your employee handbook. 90 days notice for FD grades.

If you leave EK mid year, will they recover the cost of your ALT?

No idea. But now we got an SRC I am staying. Jokes. Will definitely want to use it though.

Only problem with SRCs post service is its for travel FROM and to Dubai which makes them pretty useless unless youíve booked sub load cat A prior to your LDS into DXB. You can book unlimited cat A sub load tickets prior to midnight of LDS for travel anytime in your 12 months post service.

I got completely the opposite information!
Once you've left you can use SRC originating from outside Dubai. My friend did Europe-Dubai-Far East.
And CAT A are only valid for LDS plus 28 days.

I hope we're both half-correct.

SRC Confirmed is great from US. We used our 3 firm tickets USA-DXB-OZ return. Business all the way. Missed out on using our last two SRC standbys due to our own fault in missing the deadline to book.
