We all thought you were over this campaign... let it go, you'll be much happier.
You were wrong and I am happy.

No, Alan did that, supported by a Flamingo.
Her comment was quite relevant.

I don't get it. She is the only one with balls to take on EK and what do you do?
Attack her. Then you go back and continue your useless PPRuNe whining about EK.

Don't forget the parallels between GF and EK. Many of those failures came to EK including Timi, a former baggage handling manager....

To all the potential new joiners, perhaps you would do well to read the letter from Dnata telling employees that redundancy is on the cards. Oh but wait, isn't it illegal to make anyone redundant under UAE Labour Law? It is. But ONLY if your company is under that Law. EK although owned by the Dubai Government (via ICD) is considered a semi-government company. Hence no Labour Law.

Your contract is worthless. Just like the Brit and Indian mafia that are doing such a fabulous job of destroying the company. Lattes all round or is it Najooms?

@goatherd Future success of EK depends on the reduction % of these two groups.

IMHO they shouldn't be at any(senior,middle,team) level of management.

Agreed. It's the ultimate truth. Well observed SS. Except that Brits have their own mafia as well.

Ban healthy criticism and you've signed your own death sentence. Mueller should employ people who will tell the emperor that he is naked.

Emir is more powerful than an expat KBE. Unlike British and Indian mafias, locals want to keep this golden goose alive. Locals are here to stay. Indians can be sent home overnight. Issue is just with one mafia.

When QR got bad press about employee treatment, AAB tried (real or pretend don't know) to change. Because he is a local and has vested interest. Here both mafias have no long term vested interest in the success of the company. BR to GF to UL to EK, Timothy is no stranger to failed airlines.

If Emir didn't realize the gravity of the situation and the politics involved in restructuring, he wouldn't have bought Mueller on board.

Based on recent parroting by KBE it is evident Mueller running the show. Otherwise he would be demanding Airbus to build A380 NEO.

A comment from my blog:

Rumor has it that more HR specialists were let go this week. More cuts to come in the coming week due to long weekend. Surprisingly no cuts to grade 9 or 10 – the worst of them lot. Some grade 9 don’t even have the degree for what they do but apparently are “experienced” – hands down the worst bullocks I have ever heard. If some 9s and 10s are not shown the door then how will the influencers be changed??? So so sad – wonderful airline on its way to become BA 2. Oh wait did we forget to mention the guys BA fired are the ones that run eK now????

uba737,
I wouldn't take fatbus too seriously. He's been broadcasting his imminent departure on this site since at least 20 November……2015. Normally, because apparently his "money bucket is full". It occurred to me that maybe he just likes talking crap, but I banished such an uncharitable thought. Instead, I think maybe there's a leak in the bucket… or a problem with his feet….or the first one….I don't know….you decide.
