Capt, 2nd top bid, got two VIE layovers that I asked for.
Also the long MNL, which is now a three man crew, finally.
DAC layover, the day trip, which used to be a turnaround.
Have to give credit where credit is due, these are improvements.

They've disregarded the preferences for 777 FO. I've looked at other top bid guys that I know ask for a couple of destinations that's not particularly popular, destinations that you normally would end up with 2-3 per month in top and second top.
They got none.
A simple roster search shows that practically no destination has been given more than once to any FO.

Fark! Just finished reserve. 105 unfactored hours in 30 days! Never normally do more than 65.
Anyone else in the the same boat?

Will be controlling this months hours more closely

105 hours on reserve. Short of crew? But on a serious note...105 hours the way EK operates can simply not be safe, or good for a pilots health.

Oct bid closes on the 7th of Sept,
EK Schedule published on the 8th!!!
Go figure, instead of management extending bidding for atleast a few days longer to give us a chance to improve our life style, they just blatantly do whatever they want...
But again, weren't we recently reminded bidding is not contractual !!!!

Adel....

It's ok... that stuff happens when you're fatigued out at 105 hours month after month.

Regarding swap freeze. Does it start on the 07th or effectively earlier as I keep getting stuck on the 'Please wait validating business rules' page?

Max 2 days off in row.

It's absolutely horrendous on the 777.
