Surely not

This must be one of the first carriers to make cabin crew share hotel rooms.

Perhaps one of the first airlines in the Let's Pretend We're Fantastic category, but I know of some small African and Asian operators where it happens. Let's not forget that cabin crew working for all of the Persian Gulf carriers are forced to share accommodation at their bases in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Bahrain, and more.

Another First Class airline in that neighborhood has gone the route of removing one cabin attendant from every flight. It doesn't sound like much, but they were already operating with the least cabin crew (of the big three airlines in the LPWF category in that region) on board. Added to that, they dropped the cabin crew entry-level basic salary to Dhs2000,00 per month.

These are simply signs of desperation and indications of things to come.

gents. The last time I flew the first class companies, I was disappointed in all means. and I fly them once a month.
there is no Service anymore, there is no friendly staff anymore, I dont know the reason why a ticket in C-Class cost 3K one way when there is no service, If I dont want Service I fly LH ;-)

About to?

Their CSA have been sharing rooms since the A380 started flying. Just what you want after a 16 hour flight, to then have to work out with your colleague who gets to do the 3 S's first... and if you have opposite sleep rhythm, forget it!

They also share ROOMS in Dubai; yes the others (CC) share apartments but they know this when they join it's not a secret. The CSAs do too, but I don't think it can be compared to sharing a flat with your own room to have two of them in one room especially after an ultra long haul flight.

Doesn't surprise me though, EK have been on the penny (dirham) pinching path lately...

Next it'll be dorms in Jebel Ali...

I suppose if enough crew complain about snoring then management would have to do something about it.

Snoring

Yes, they will ground the snoring one, send you to a sleeping apnea test while removed from roster. Your medical certificate approval will be pending the results, and fleet will send an email asking for explanation of your unacceptable behavior. Maybe you’ll dodge a warning letter, but later on you’ll receive another email asking why you’ve had so many sick days this year (even tho they were the ones sending you to the clinic). Maybe they’ll delay your upgrade one year due your low productivity.

Good luck with that one.

You mean like how they do something about it when the crew complain of fatigue/compressed rosters/fatiguing rostering patterns?

ha don't make me laugh

To be fair they did change a couple of flights but that was only after the pilots also complained. They could give two fkucs if the CC complain fatigue... at least there's a couple of dr's in the clinic who gave a rats but they probably won't last long with that attitude

Hahaha!

Don't those hard-working girls that maintain the showers on the A380 share a hotel room on layover and have since inception of the service? I don't recall anyone raising a finger to protest against that. Why is it a concern suddenly now that the company has figured out a way to squeeze a few more dirty-hams by imposing the same on the regular CC?

Pilots next. Why not? Only logical.

(Ah sorry, see now the CSA's were mentioned previously).

Good grief, if this comes to fruition what a disaster. If they dare do it to pilots I'll be on the next flight back home. Doesn't look promising for a payrise in 18 does it...

I guess the question has to be asked. Who decides who sleeps with who?

Wake up call will have to 2 hours before pickup, to avoid having to share the bathroom

Cabin Crew received a clarification from management that those are fake rumours. I won't go onto the content of the email but some ideas discussed are actually good ones that are already applied by other airlines (some will say for once!)
