..and the band played on...

So, latest rumor-fest:

STC and GC to depart sooner rather than later, for reasons various

G Al G (currently FY) to take the big Job at EK

AAR to DNATA

CM to AAR's seat

H Al H (ex-VP Trg EK) to JA's job.

The FY guys and gals are anticipating some much closer relationship with EK....I can't say they'd be wrong to think that way..

Only difference I heard was A Al S (audit) to take TOGAs job.
The vacuum of information is causing a big breeze.

All plausible except CM to ATCs job.

Way below his strategic & experience level.

And whover the next CEO is - has to be a guy who did not cheerlead the ordering of hundreds of A380's.

We all said it was madness, the Competition agreed, journos alluded to it and the market decided it.

Fresh view please.

It was CM for AAR, but even that is a little low for him. By the way, where is ThAn in that chair chase?

It's a bit like clapping your hands on the Piazza San Marco. All pigeons fly up, fly two circuits and land on the Piazza again, simply on another spot. Only setback is, that by flying up, each one leaves a nice s#it behind that no one bothers to clean up.

And whover the next CEO is - has to be a guy who did not cheerlead the ordering of hundreds of A380's.
.... and who has the guts to permanently ground some 50 of these anachronistic behemoths, additionally to cancel all incumbent orders.

There is indeed NO way CM would fill in ATCs position. Way way below his level.
Would however be a vast improvement but will never happen....

I love the one with the pigeons

Good rumours, but seriously A Al S getting anything more than his current rant cupboard is scary

glofish for the win.

A bit unfair to the pigeons, but a spot-perfect analogy of management "restructuring" at Dysfunction Central.

Al plausible except for the fixer. He's going to the airline which you're not allowed to call by its name.

Who really gives a toss, rosters, hours, contracts and management attitude to us will all remain the same. It's just bigger bonuses for the top ranks.

TICH just resigned, check your e mails...

Shame, he tried valiantly to make a difference, but my guess is he is fed up trying with no or little support from ATC.
