DSVP Flight Ops is a AOC postholder position within EK and changes to any postholder position necessitates a revision to the Part A manual. Until we see a FCN informing us of his replacement, then TCAS unequivocally remains the DSVP Flight Ops.

Donny....
TCAS is from his BA days. Not made up here
Not true. It comes from TCK. They just replaced the K with AS.

However the rest of your post is spot on.

The Z...apologies.

Modesh, you are speaking from your Panal Asage, the name comes from his BA days where he was universally loathed, he even managed to upset a good portion of the CX 747 population as well when he acted in a less than honourable fashion in respect of some members of a select group of 49, I'll let others elaborate if they choose as I know several here that have first hand experience of his previous post.
I personally wouldnt cross the street to pee on him if his hair caught alight, but I would bring marshmallows.

MM you are correct: the TCAS soubriquet came from BA.

OK, I'll go with it coming from his BA days. Where did TCK come from then?

Gentlemen,

You are correct.

Strange though, that TC(K) was replaced by somebody already called TC and from a different airline. Coincidence?

Actually maybe not, as it seems CK was at BA before EK...so maybe the TC is a BA thing?

Lets hope the new guy isn't already a TC or from BA!!!

Apologies all round.

M

I see that latest FCI, issued today, was signed off by AS?? I thought yesterday was his last day in the job.

Maybe his new nickname should be "floater", he just can't be flushed away?

He was appointed principal to a non existing academy. He can obviously hold two posts when one of them holds no responsibilities besides collecting a pay check.

All hail the profits!

Note my earlier post. TCAS is still DSVP Flight Ops until we are informed otherwise by FCN.

The guy most responsible of severely pushing the envelope in flight safety (Reduced rest hours, increased flying hours, shorter ULR layovers to name a few) is now in charge of everything.

What can go wrong?

SVP Safety promoted to DSVP flight ops. VP-Flight training has been given a newly created position SVP technical or some such. Effective Jan 1st

Political appointment! AAR has appointed someone that will carry out his every wish. JA not appointed due being 'too soft' toward flight crew. Don't ask for further explanation as i cannot give but that's the bare truth.

The company missed the best opportunity to bring us onside by recruiting JA but chose not to. Make of that what you will.

Didn't see that one coming. Everyone else must have turned it down...

HD will be equally ineffective as AS.

Disappointing, but not surprising.

HD in my dealings with him was a thoroughly nice fella, in point of fact on a couple of flights he's been on to the Emerald Isle that I skippered he made the effort to say hello and have a chat on arrival.
He is in my opinion a vastly different animal to TCAS, how effective he is in terms of dealing with the issues you guys now face? Perhaps someone from Aer Fungus might be able to enlighten? Wee Willy came from a similar background, so perhaps a harbinger of things to come?

Biff,
You are correct, in that, the position was turned down by others. Probably not a more ineffectual post holder position in the company. Notice there was not a "National" promoted to the position. HD seems to be nice chap and has seemed to do what he can in safety, but don't see this as being a major change for the front line.
