Jeppesen bidding sytem at EK

Any word on when this new system is to be active?

Any info on what changes to the bidding process will be incorporated? Heard of max 3 days off in a row to be limit. Anyone else hear the same? Purely a rumour (friend of a friend of a friend type thing) but anything is possible

From wash up,

Exact date not known, possibly sometime in 2015. We were told its been running on test mode for a while. Dunno what that exactly means.
Fleet said no idea re the restrictions/rules that will be incorporated in it.

Yeah, funny that. Not knowing about the restrictions. Complete BS from the lying mis-management.

brace for more restrictions coming our way....

productivity is not good enough... they did not get the 1000h from GCAA and now they will try to push on factoring.

seems they are planing on stick time... So one can do an additional ULR plus some turns more...

Can you clarify that, Flaphandle? I thought we were already doing stick time towards our 900 ' target'.

So I probably shouldn't mention that some colleagues at Flydubai have routinely been able to get more than seven off in a row through our bidding system…...

Don't get excited about it, they'll put in so many restrictions and screw up a perfectly good bidding system the same as they have the current one.

It won't work!

Plus, heard that trainers and others will lose some ability to do pre bid trips, ie, restrictions and the loss of the 5 days off ability. Just passing on info.

73 days to go. Walking on the beach with the dogs. Waking up every morning next to my darling wife. No more jet lag. No more feeling under threat at every turn.

Can't wait.

The real nasty part of this was no pilot input was allowed and the meaningless Manager Fleets were allowed to alter and add to it as they saw fit! The Airbus boss oven asked if the Manager Fleets would bear in mind living standards and the men haters scoffed at it!!


Go get your shares in KY as they is gonna be lots of it in use soon!!

They would be the last to be consulted, if ever. There is no one and no position in that department with any power much beyond the authority to bully, harass and threaten the minions in their section - ie pilots. And there's no interest either.

Jeppesen - While they're at it why not show some brilliance and buy the documents package too...

Who cares? They should be getting trips to India and Africa to expose the trainees to the more challenging end of the spectrum instead of cycling around the Außenalster.

We do. Granted, it is during the day in most cases but BOM is all too familiar

Whereabouts are you heading SOPS? Are you able to tell us?

Best of luck with the move, keep us all updated with developments as it may assist those of us looking to jump ship soon.

Good man. Think you'll find it pans out even better than you anticipate! I left last year, mostly due to rostering issues, after almost 20 mostly enjoyable years. Believe me, there is life after flying and DXB. No regrets at all.

Best of luck.

We have the Jeppesen bidding system where I work. Every once in a while I actually get a flight that I bid. Then again, I do always get my allowed days off when I want them.
