So no pay rise at all, and little more overtime.

Oh, and maybe an increase on the trainer rates

If the server for the Middle East forum manages to stay online this afternoon without melting down, I take my hats off to the tech guys

And our fearless leaders took a month to come up with this wonderful gem.

That's a zero increase for an FO that's been here 4yrs (right?). I know a lot of guys that are waiting on the dugong to get the time and have been fo's for 7-8yrs.

Thanks for the reduction by a whopping 4hrs. Whew.

All I can say is "CAPTAIN!!! ICEBURG AHEAD!!"

I'm actually insulted. I always take these things with a bit of a pinch of salt - but this year there is no justification for that kind of kick in the balls.
How dare he thank us and expect our continued support and hard work for the remainder of this year?! What a damn cheek - I'm going to stop writing as I'm likely to say something that will get me wound up in jail however I hope he/they get everything they deserve...and more.

Thumbs down

What an insult, they clearly don't have a clue. That pittance of an increase doesn't even cover the increase in my groceries shopping bill which seems to have increased about 25% in the last few years. Recruitment was already struggling now they will have an even bigger problem with retention.
This ship had already lost an engine with nobody on the rudder pedals now its in a deep stall. They are going to learn the Gulf Air way!
I never expected much but had held some hope, like most for an improvement.
My exit strategy just got a lot sooner. Total Arrogance

I've never been so disgusted, truly never thought our glorious leaders could stoop so low! Time to treat them with the same respect they give us.

I just got off the phone with my financial advisor. He's absolutely gobsmacked with the company largesse and says that if we take the 290 dirham raise I got last year and factor in the marvelous 0 dirham raise I receive this year (backdated) it's possible that I can afford a Costa coffee each time I go to work.

What a thrill!

An Alan's personal thanks, too! I am humbled.

Unbelievable!!!! To say I'm extremely disappointed would be putting it mildly.

This years pay review is a complete disgrace!! The cost of living is growing but upwards of 10% a year and we get a measly 3% step with no pay rise. Wow. I'm speechless!!

They are in complete denial regarding the situation here and how bad it is getting.

Guys are leaving... it's just a matter of time for me. This will only accelerate it for others on the bubble.

In the mean time... I guess I'll just press 2 if I have even an inkling of a sniffle. Going the extra mile is a thing of the past.

It's Simple.

They are happy with the staffing levels and the recruitment prospects. NOT AS MANY PILOTS ARE LEAVING as we have been led to believe on this forum.....SIMPLE!!
And we went through the SAME THING last year!
The fact that many captains have had no leave assigned for 13 months or more would suggest otherwise, very strange.
