So pedantic and childish !

We usually let everyone do what they want and set a safe time to meet at the gate , too bad you lot are being treated like children

The whole company is a huge Kindergarden. So no wonder.

It's getting serious now. All office dwellers have to meet up near Wafi at 0600hrs. Then attach EK decals to cars and form up in a single convoy in order of grade, date of joining and then car colour (red cars at the front obviously). The convoy will then make its way at 50kph to the designated car park. Cars will then be parked in order. On the parking of the most juniors members car, that member will sound a single horn beep, signalling all employees to turn off car Engine, count two beats and then open door, count another two beats then remove themselves from the car. At this point all employees are free to make their way to Costa and resume normal duties.

With what is going on in Europe currently, the last thing I want to be in, is a big readily identifiable group in a public place.

It's actually impossible. I tried it for a laugh.

Some get stuck at security, some at passport, some in the loos and some elsewhere.

As someone already said, most of the time we are in a group large enough without effort.

Save your energy for OTP instead.

A lack of OTP harms the brand more than walking through an airport.

Now in my 40th year of aviation.
My rule is simple, I am the sheep dog, the CC are the sheep. Being at the back ensures they ( and increasingly senile me) don't get lost!!

You people have a short memory: this nonsense was first uttered by the Weasel a few years ago. His heirs at the castle are just re-issuing it.
The flying public is far more impressed with the quality of the inflight service and, as someone mention above, with the on time departure and arrival. The rest is irrelevant.

They call it "optics", I call it "economics".

I might have considered following their direction IF they had afforded us certain contractual courtesy's such as a simple pay rise, 85 hour rosters, maybe some bidding satisfaction in the top two bids.

Previous posters have said it, "read it, forget it, move on".

They'll get what they give, which in this case is a resounding "nothing".

Always walk at the back, besides sheep herding, 90% of time has the best view

Thought I might try this latest "standard" and give it a real honest what the heck. So as per usual, everyone follows the first person - unfortunately me. Most of the time, I can't remember or have the faintest where we are checking in etc. So the entire team, back tracks and we waste 5 min. I'm going back to the sheep dog option Enjoy the view and assess/action/manage. The real advertising "image" is the CC anyway, so why not let them lead the runway.

Exactly, it also says where practical. So what's the problem? Business as usual

noun, plural lackˇeys.

a servile follower; toady.
a footman or liveried manservant.

Interesting manner of how to rank FOs

Out of touch

Obviously, the person who thought up this latest gem either:


-A. The biggest plane they flew was a 320 where grouping 5 crew was practical


-B Flew in the military where they are skilled at getting a squadron through a parade.


-C Has never flown an airplane and resides at Costa from 7-3 (except Thursdays.


Getting 30 people to march in unison is neither practical nor efficient. Many of the airports that we walk through are too small for such a parade. Many have curves and bends that don't allow the passengers to view the spectacle in full.


They're struggling to fill the weekly emails with something significant, so they have to make this stuff up.

A long convoy of crew carrying mobility buggies would turn a lot of heads, especially if the beeps were on
