Well...he is probably right. We all talk about the mass exodus that never come. I will bet you the same people are around next year also saying they will promptly leaving if such and such doesn't happen... its a new concept..The Dubai Syndrom

In the briefing stands a pilot
And a flyer by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of EK rosters dragging on
And scarred him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
But the pilot still remains

Perhaps there will be some. But this is the first time since I have been here that I know several pilots who have their apps out to other airlines. I reckon 300 gone by the end of the year. Me included. While the $ is an issue. (Promised or implied vs. received) the main issue are the rosters. I quite simply can not do what they are requiring me to do. My schedule goes from day to night 10 times this month, all with 8 days off. This is a problem I do not see going away anytime soon. So I will be going away. I really really wanted to stay, but also really want to see my kids grow up and live past 57. So even if its 20 weeks and 20% I am still gone, as the $ is not main issue it's the rosters.

One for Dropp following on from 70's ditty:

There was a young pilot who'd whine
he was working harder each year on the line
The money was less, the job had more stress
and the profit share smaller each time!

Seems about right I reckon

Counting myself, Payscale, I personally 8 pilots, who have either left since the end of March, of are currently working through their resignation period. People are leaving.

SOPS, have you quit EK? I've just checked all your posts for the last few months and you only mention the fact about 5000 times. Just wondered if you could confirm its true. I guess that's the reason the wheels are falling off.

And whenever I check the forum you are trolling and bullying people. And that is the real reason why the wheels are falling off.

Will be there, a few things to sort out with HR regarding my impending departure, seems to be something worth doing before escape and evasion

SOPS, as some of your posts may appear condescending to those stuck in the mire, with sleep deprivation and raw nerve endings, may I respectfully advise some self-editing.

However, to those criticising his posts, suggesting a hobby etc, may I suggest that we all have an intrinsic right to be here and to speak our piece, as 'professional pilots' on what was once a professional pilot's network.

As for the 7th, the only true reflection of our disdain will be the empty hall.

True, but there are enough sycophants to cheer the emperors clothes.
No message can get to the ones who chose not to listen, only to be cheered and given awards.

Those wanting 20 weeks will be disappointed. Source says it willl be highest ever but not that high. So will be more than 14 weeks but not 20.
