Always made me chuckle seeing that Safara magazine photo of him in a tailored EK Pilot's uniform standing with all the cabin crew in front a 380.

Did they tailor uniforms for all non-flying Managers? Never saw AS or JA in such a pose:

MM and AS both had widebody commands at KT and BA respectively. Not sure whether JA was a 747 Skipper or FO at BA when he originally lost his medical. Neither MM or JA seem the pretentious type anyway. Not really had much dealings with AS only met him once, so cannot say.

Not sure , AS took 22 yrs to command , just how it was back then, especially if involved in mngmt. Tell me about JA who had a successful military career prior to BA ? The guy is basically sound imho .as is MM but they must survive as we all must . How about the others ? Mini carriers don't count , not enough background to understand our operation . Stand ready to be contradicted .

Is this EK spin?

I can't comment because I don't work for EK. Nevertheless an interesting article.

M Algiveyouawarning letter is on sick leave. Bless him. After THAT landing he needs some time for reflection. It couldn't have happened to a nicer or more humble Sky God. The article doesn't do justice to his modesty...

Thank you for posting the article. Someone doing already in this thread clearly wasn't enough.

Doubt it is spin as the article is 11 months old.

Albeit a short one, with no command.

Don't know what happened with you and this Emirati DCP but I hope he's not into depression and reading this thread,and that he has a great family/friends support around him.
These forums really demonstrate how reporting, exposing privacy,spying rosters and shooting last bullet in s/o's head is your favourite activity...
No more chivalrous spirit in this industry,eagles died replaced by unidentified parrots acting in packs,comfortably hiden behind anonymity (at least they think so...)
Moderators might have been on strike when pictures/name were exposed here...
Even when Red Baron was shot down he was buried with honors by his enemies.

QCM. Clearly you don't have the same love and appreciation of this lovely man as many current and ex EK guys do. Viscious, nasty, bereft of talent and humility are terms that come to mind. He was happy to have all the publicity. No one has named him. Merely provided an article for others to read. Take the rough with the smooth. If this incident had happened to an expat how long do you think they would have lasted? ASR not filled in? Last but not list as Don pointed out the boys do seem to be on hand quite a bit when things go wrong....

Surely you're right on many aspect 777boy and probably there is some revange in the air...my point was just: don't be at the same level as s/o you despise so much!
