Very likely very small profit share, not due to EK said profit, but rather to prevent the exodus of cc and fc leaving soon after all on one or two days.

P88,

That won't stop the exodus, just create more bad feeling

Probably not that many as officially it's paid in June, despite usually being paid in May.

Mr Tiote, I understand you might be looking to move to a Chinese carrier, could you be tempted to join me in a move to London?

I'm in a managerial role based in the capital and I remember when we were based in NCL together you were a very valued, hard working employee.

We need characters like you to make sure my airline doesn't go down.

I know there's now more money being offered in Asia, specifically China, but if you want to further your career then I feel you should come and work with me again.

Cheers, Alan

too long overdue.

It's like an overcooked sirloin: you wanted it rare and it comes well done. No chance to recover.

If (and it is a huge if) overseas bases would be on the table, just imagine:
EK would most probably offer it to newcomers (DECs) first, to attract a minimum of pilots who can tell the front from the rear of an aircraft. That would in turn anger the methusalems around here, who would ask to be the first for such a treat.
"No can do" will say EK, overwhelmed by the number asking for it (judging by the attraction Dubai has become, close to 80%) ..... and overlooked, the latter will leave even more rapidly ....

No. Dream on, they'd rather lower the standard to microsoft drone heroes, than open bases!

Disparate times call for disparate measures. I think more than one wheel has fallen off.

At the rate they have been going the last few months, EK is adding about 180 pilots a year to the seniority list.

And they are losing 40-45 pilots a month and just wait until this summer!
Quality goes out the door while TP pilots with 1500 hrs come banging down the door.
At this rate I don't even think overseas bases will help the cause.

What I mean is the total sum of the pilot body is increasing at a rate that is about 180 a year including hiring, firing, attrition, etc. Period.

Please get your facts right... 20-27 per month off the seniority list for the last the three months and that includes retirements, long time sickness and people "asked" to resign.

Looks like like the min qualification for FO will become a CPL with multi.
My friend who is in Line training, is already complaining.
