Welcome Back - Really?

So whilst reading through the weekly flight ops mail I saw a list of pilots who would be re-joining. Since I knew of two of them I asked them if it was true? Both said they had no idea where this came from and that they had no intention of rejoining let along ever stepping foot in Dubai again.

So the questions are:

1. Is this the standard stream of BS that this weekly will be known for? It certainly has given this reader cause for immediate deletion. I believe the Russians tried that tactic with a small paper called Pravda with similar results.

2. Is this a pathetic attempt at trying to retain pilots who are thinking about, or in the process of resigning to stay?

3. Is this another example of how desperate things have become in the "castle of bounciness" ?

4. Was this supposed to be an email that was going to be followed by another email asking to retract the first?

Either way...just another example of how bad things are.

Shocking if true, sunk to new depths even for them. One of those names is re-joining though, or has at least applied to rejoin after leaving recently.

Typical trick from the Costa dwellers, stupid as they are!
No surprise!

I left in the not too distant past. Im straight but Id take up male prostitution before Id work for those b*st*rds again. Come to think of it, I guess the end result would be similar. Each to their own, I guess!

In prostitution you are usually rewarded for the amount of effort you put in 😉

If prostitutes worked to an EK roster they'd be in the top percentile of sex industry earners!

It's more likely whomever compiles the propaganda just picked some random names to fill some space.

It can be hard to tell the lazy incompetence from the intent to deceive sometimes.

Interestingly we at Ryanair are told that you guys are all coming here to cure the shortage of crews that management tell us we don’t have��

What IS laughable is the simple fact that they feel it is worthy news to post "6" returning ex-EK Pilots as if the rest of us should be very cautious about any decision to resign.

If the company really cared about those joining then there would be the names of the new joiners each month. Sorry, this appears to be a "stunt" message to pilots who are considering leaving, its aim is clearly more than a compassionate welcome to "potential" re-joining Pilots.

Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

It reminds me of the dodgy real estate agent that picks up his phone when he's showing you a house and says someone has just put an offer in!

I like it,

It shows a warm embracing culture from the company, and allows as all to welcome back our old colleagues with a congratulatory smile.

Similarly the company should really be publishing a list of leavers each month so we can offer the same level of respect and wish our friends all the best in their future careers.

I think it's great . Takes away some of the uncertainty of leaving .

If it all goes wrong , at least Emirates will take you back .

Not sure that's their intention tho.😉

Even better is the 'Hitler finds out Ryanair is cancelling flights' but I can't get the link to paste; it shows up in the Trending Videos section of that site.

Even if the guys are joining it still shows desperation of EK. An airlines who never welcomed anyone back barring a few cases, has started publishing list in the ops update. ....really is it ops update ...or is it wash up ...
