Well, nothing awarded which means no Peak Leave 3 years in a row. Any suggestions as to who I email? Oh I almost forgot, 47 days owed, but I'm confident we aren't short of pilots

Got everything I requested for peak and non peak.

God bless the 180 that can't carry much cargo!

A question regarding leave

Hi all,

I'm starting with EK in a week on 777 (apparently).....and have a question about leave.

I hear everyone is flat out, but when the leave bids come in, if I apply/request for all leave that I am entitled to and I don't get it.....does the unused/unallocated leave roll over to the next year (eg: is it banked?).....or does it disappear?

Thanks for you time.

Yes, but they'll also try to allocate as much of it as they can during the current leave year and give it to you at the most useless times possible. It's manageable for a year or two, but it gets old really quickly when it happens on a regular basis.

Thanks for the heads up mate.

8 years ago 42 days full allocation to 30 days to 21 days every other year to 14 days now. Exit strategy developing... New joiners beware...

Not all of us habibi, not all of us.

I was awarded ten days off in a row this month. And next month. And the month after...

Oh wait - this is the Middle East, predominately Emirates forum. My mistake. Had a bit of PTSD for a second.

Good luck to all and sundry. It will get worse before it gets ummm..even more worse.
