I know EK is currently short of pilots. What if there was a serious re- structure and there was a surplus . What happens to your resident visa? Also what happens if you own a property and no longer have a visa ? New hires that have bought could be in a tight spot.

There is no requirement to have a residence visa to own property. If you loose your residence status you would have to leave the country but you could rent out your property if you couldn't/wouldn't sell it. I think it would be the least of your problems.

But...i t would have to be one huge restructure to leave us with too many pilots. The loss of face would be too much.

Resident Visa and status available if you own a property in DXB.

I would be very much surprised as this states just the opposite to what I have heard from official sources recently. If at all delay possibly because lack of trainers...

2nd rumour - we are so short of pilots that recently recruitment HR have been cold calling people who either turned down the job / didn't make the grade at the application phase and more surprisingly calling applicants' referees who are pilots asking if they would like a job!!

Even better, they emailed a colleague to propose a career opportunity with EK. The funny bit is, he's already an EK Captain and been here 9 years!! They must be emptying desk drawers looking for any old applications.

Well I saw an email by EK HR sent to my FO (online only for a few months) few weeks ago pleading him to recommend EK to his friends and how EK still wants the best pilots. The best bit was when she stated that the more pilots he recommends the better his rosters will become in the future... ;;;;;;;;;;-))))

It's a standard email to all newish entrants, and any roster improvement alluded to is based on increased numbers taking pressure off the existing pilots, not any personal favouritism. Come on, guys, keep it reasonable.

5th rumour is 100% true, no rumour. A neighbour VP told me this and have heard from others.

Complete chaos on HR pilot recruitment, a nice HR lady was terminated by AAR recently, now working in another part of the group.

Over capacity is s serious problem, the 380/777 mix is wrong, smaller 350/787 type jets needed. Hence rumours of cancellation of 380 and a big order for 350's doing the rounds.

This whole "Transformation" thing is so badly communicated and handled, typical EK.

A former colleague of mine who is now in his 60s and who applied to EK some time ago as an SFI, was emailed out of the blue a few weeks ago by HR asking if he would be interested in joining as an F/O.

It made us laugh anyway.....

A380 fanboys would consider that statement as a violation against human rights. Please take it back.

A380 fanboys strongly demand poor countries to build Code F airports and their citizens to work hard and save enough enough money to enjoy the cabin experience of a EK A380.

There are more A380 fanboys in the world than actual pax flew on a A380.

Maybe there might be a few less VP's, VPNC and SVP's . Followed closely by a mass reductions of managers that don't manage. Supervisors that don't supervise . That's just for round one . Should go the distance .

fatty, this would include a lot of de-emiratisation, which cannot happen, but if others have to go ..... who would do the job?

Guys when I said his rosters will improve I meant all the FOs rosters improve if more pilots recommend EK to their friends.. Friends like that who needs enemies.??

Sorry SyB, couldn't resist.

On a serious note, most of these unconventional brilliant ideas are spawned from current management, how either emiratis or CM going to force the direction change.

With regards to SyB comment about A380/B777 being wrong fit, need A350/B787... STC cancelled A350s, placed large B777X order, confirmed additional A380s and claimed B787-10 is not a good fit.

Now if EK want to switch A380s to A350s and B777x to B787-10s, both A & B will say WTF.
