EK round 2 leave

So, did I read the email wrong or were we supposed to have our latest round of leave refusals by 4pm today?

It's all the fault of Dubai Police!

The leave planners did a fantastic job, i have seen it, i know, but their USB stick was accidentally left in the non company suitcase of a management pilot checking and admiring this marvel during his hard earned LAX layover and has been confiscated by the police without realising how exempt these managers are of all regulations affecting the lazy line pilots.

It might be released after this week-end, when the hard working agents between the stairs will have time to lift their arms away from their mobiles and place the suitcase on the scanner. The next few days will be necessary to have someone from the third floor going through the stringent security barriers and to collect the abandoned suitcase to then deliver it to another hard working third floor vice president at Costas, until it can be given back to the leave planners to publish their fabulous work.

All this in a strive to make Emirates great again.

Well, it's gone 18:00 and Leave is still not published.

Short of pilots? Of course not!

It would be nice if someone grew some balls and actually admitted there was a crewing problem.

Can you guys imagine how long we would last if we had the same respect for deadlines?

I chuckled. Not because it's funny but at your petty attempt for humour

Flyingishere is just a troll. Just read his/her BS on the other threads. 6 posts, yeah right. You probably just had to change your name after you were previously outed. "I don't bit (sic) for leave. I'm here to work" WTF!!! How patronising can you get. Oops, forgot, you're a troll...

(But they have apologised again)

You ask us not to post negative info re Emirates, yet you cannot provide us with our Leave even after it is already 1 week late.

Are you joking? Really, are you joking or do you actually think this is acceptable?

I am sorry, but you are f&cking arrogant, ignorant, [email protected]

Have had enough of flying 100 plus hours a month for you.

[email protected] off and good night

What's really reprehensible is that no manager be it JA, HD or someone lower has taken the time to tap out an apology email - albeit from their cell phone - anything, just a quick blurb.

Nope it's Thursday night and as we go to work - they sit at home or in the bar, at the club - and show no concern whatsoever.

An absolute f^%#*+^g disgrace.
