Panther, the difference here is, lots don't care anymore. Rightly or wrongly I could quite happily throw away flying for good and go and do something else, financially I'm already there, but there's that part of me that now knows by hook or by crook that I'm going to drain as much blood out of this stone as humanly possible. I'll do it till I either don't want to, or can't be bothered to, purely my decision and position in life, goodluck to everyone else with their circumstances and choices.
Many of us have also been through bankruptcy and operators closing their doors, right now it doesn't feel that way, yes there are elements, but, I got paid!

A brown nosing conniver of the highest order. The idea that there was any intention to fix anything is ludicrous. 7 years in and take the package, simple.

The only time I was threatened when working for the GCAA's accident investigation dept was by HD. it was the 777 Capt incapacitation inbound to DXB that was opened as a fatigue investigation. 'watch yourself', a remarkable statement at best, along with the song and dance routine that went along with it; a smoke and mirrors routine that could win strictly come dancing.

The GCAA principle inspector is so closely alinged with the EK management as to be indistinguishable in intent and purpose. As for the approval of the OM-A, it may as well be approved by EK...hang on a minute.

As for the other ex air lingus clown currently inhabiting the GCAA, that is another story altogether.

No one is naive enough to think Dubai would be anything like an established civilisation prior to joining. We all knew the risks and the cultural differences that come with it. It's extremely disappointing that Expat managers subscribe to that style of management but at the end of the day they joined to make as much money as possible in as short a time as possible.

Expecting things to change when the State is flat broke is wishful thinking, but if it gives people hope that's fine. Unfortunately it seems you either have to bite the bullet and leave for a better lifestyle and slightly lower salary, or make the most of what you have and accept the situation.

Really? TD gone? His money bucket was full years ago.

Was he pushed or did he find another place in the world to hide out?

I just clicked on that link and then clicked on the link referencing the Emirates Illuminati and it freaking redirects you to Emirates.com!!! Now that is some Emirates Illuminati Sh!t and not the kind they were going for.

I'm outside the UAE btw.

You're just getting redirected but NOT sure why to emirates. Com -- that site is banned in the UAE

Hmmm, I wonder if RT will be next to "resign"?
Surely his protecting the Nome must catch up with him!
