Perhaps GF should bring back Gordomac out of retirement as their Ambassador to spread the word of the virtues of Bahrain and GF. He could bring his sidekick slowjet to carry his bags perhaps to make him feel useful

It seems they just wake up. Adverts everywhere for DEC A320 and B787. Strange why they just don't call the pilots who applied and never got a feedback. Interesting times ahead...

Of course they will replace the recruitment team. But they will be selected on the basis of who they know rather than what they know. The wasta system, jobs for the boys, nice little jollies , money for lining pockets, total corruption. Tackle that little lot & you might start to get somewhere. Of course, "that little lot" will never be addressed and the merrygoround wil just roll on & on.

Anyone here considered that DEC 787 might cause a bit of a riot? I think Fleet Office is having their hands full with complaints and objections. Pilots have been waiting for years maybe decades for the opportunity to go to the widebody fleet....

Gulf Air Pilot Trade Union?! Now that is good news! A first in the GCC or Middle East even?
Well done to the brave pilots that have established this, could be the start of a movement.

Started work with Gulf Air in late 2011 during a massive recruitment drive. Almost got made redundant in 2012 during a massive expat redundancy rage. Had my leave cancelled in mid 2013 due to pilot shortage.

It makes me wonder why GF continuously advertise DEC positions for the last couple of years. Is there a massive resignation of pilots or the failure rate at the assessment is high?

Gulf Air Pilot Trade Union, hopefully it will not lead to another massive expat pilot redundancy.

a bright and shining example of the lack of professionalism in the recruitment department is in print in the latest Flight International...they have to get it together, if they cant even get the advert right..
