When are the ek rosters supposed to come out again?

I probably missed the email explaining it all in great detail but when do the rosters get published these days? Is it not supposed to be the 16th?

Really? Is that official because if so that's pathetic! It's been released on the 16th and 18th in the past therefore it can be done. If it's been done twice it can be done always.

Really? Are you guys actually saying that you don't get to know what you're doing on the 01st of a month until 7 days before?

If so that is incredibly archaic in this century. I know you have many many other problems from browsing this site but confess that I hadn't picked up on that one. Even those other bloodsuckers at CX manage it by the 15th which I thought was more typical.

15th is excellent , most places I know of are 18-24th. Except those lucky folks who get their rosters 2 or 3 months at a time. There are places where people don't know what they are doing till the 30th!

The last two months, rosters on the 18th, were actually an improvement!! Thanks for that, it's appreciated.
Let's see if they can uphold it.

The 15th is not excellent. It's very average. I can only presume from your other posts that you've been drinking cool aid during the cruise phase.

Well my roster must be pretty much ready as I'm getting emails for offline freighters (that I didn't bid for).

One nameless carrier I worked for years ago offered their January schedule… on NYE! Three months later we were all in the unemployment line.

Baahahahaha! Think I'll have an aneurism if I have a contract adjustment letter attached to my roster!

Needless to say 13+ days off on its own merits would be fine.

They are on the portal now.
Truely amazed that the only ULR/LH trips I bid for were SFO and IAD transpires into MEL-AKL-MEL. And Top Bid month as well.
Quick bit of maths and it is basic, reckons about 16 pilots a month ( on average) left the company between Jan16 and Feb 17. With the current state of rostering I cannot see how this sorry state of affairs can be averted.
EK management seem to be content to play the fiddle like Nero, whilst the Airline burns.

380 roster sounds sweet compared to the tractor A6-EEU (nothing like mine )

That's scary that 13 days off and 87 hours is now considered good.
