EK Roster satisfaction

I'm asking this to B777 people in the top two bid groups for the September roster:
Did you get any of your preferences, that you can confirm was due bidding? (i.e asked for a specific destination and got two)

I think the profit Jagger said it best "I cant get no satisfaction"

2nd top bid - B777 FO. Pretty senior. Got the square root of cock all on either request or preferences.

A sensible email is being constructed to highlight the inadequacies and inequalities. Will it achieve anything? Of course not but it'll help me feel just a tad better!!!

Bizarrely enough Habibis, middle bid(yeah I know not top 2 bids) and I got for me at least almost a dream roster Lots of deadheading, 20 hours.. no turnarounds, 3 preferences I got awarded, not specific flights, 5 day block off as a preference

Not gloating, but am surprised for sure.

Habibis this is to keep you away from the young new GR2's who will do as I tell them, and stay away from your wealthy married cockpit.

Top bid, senior FO in my group. Had to use up all my 5 requests to secure a string of days off, of which I got three

Didn't get any of my preferences, basically quite the opposite..

Please please email the bid guys then fleet. Every time I talk to them they don't seem to have many other complaints. I know it's because most of us have given up and know it will make no difference but it drives me mad when they say they didn't get many complaints and therefore it must be my incredibly high expectations of getting ANY generic layover preference in the US or EU that's the issue..
Bring back the old system, worked fine if you invested a bit of time to bid.

Second bottom. Every preference for five of the same days off in every combination. Got it! Sweet.

Two day turns, one ULR, two augment plus 12 days off with three days reserve at the start.

Bottom bid, bid for days off only, block of 6 days, couple of turns all day time and about 70hrs. clearly the bidding system works (sarcasm)

The profit Jagger also said "you can't always get what you want...but if you try sometime you find you get what you need"

By the way roster satisfaction is an Oxymoron !

Just curious. How can you guys keep putting up with all this crap.
Enough is enough. Or it should.

seriously, it got even worse since I left 3 months ago, just accept the fact that it will never get any better, they come up with all those rules to screw you, just move on
