thanks Harry, thats all anybody needed to say rather than attacking the fellow that posted a rumor on a rumor network...I fail to see any intention to rubbish anybody..

Everything is not open to discussion when it ain't the truth.

Do you even know the meaning of the word “rumor” ? Google it and rest assured that something happened for real, there’s nothing to laugh here, it’s a serious matter.

Then if it's THAT serious, perhaps better posted on the dedicated Emirates Forum. Stating there was only one pilot on the flight deck on a public forum helps nobody....especially if it's based on some flimsy evidence.

The lack of maturity and awareness shown by so called professional pilots is staggering at times.

Something definitely happened, no doubt ! probably somewhere between truth & rumour .. embarrassing but not a total surprise
A sort of “ here we go again “ moment ; and yes this is a rumour site, and the virtue signallers should calm down .

To be fair to too low.... He/she did put a disclaimer in the post and listed allegedly at least twice. Can't ask for much more than that around here.

Short answer...no

A strange trait of pilots that I have observed over the years is that many tend to find no greater pleasure than witnessing the failure of their peers... Never quite understood that myself....

Ironbut going by their names, (I don't know them) they are not from any master race.

Jack 330 have a Google and find out what professional pilot means. Thats the bit just before the rumour you were confused with.

What is staggering is how you, and so many others, have bought into UAE fearmongering and exploitation of injustice as a tool of control. The idea that everything that happens within the Company should be top secret and kept indoors stems directly from the autocratic environment and corporate dictation of opinion. In other words, they own your opinion, and anytime you use it without their permission, the punishment shall be punitive and extreme.

The question originally asked was:
Any inside regarding BKK/SYD Cpt. being locked out and FO solo landed?
I didn't see any of you jumping up in defense of the Jet Airways crew a couple of weeks ago when the media got hold of their cockpit spat. Get ahold of yourselves. Stop being the puppets of your Arab controllers and think the way you used to think when you still lived in the civilized world. In the interest of continued learning in this industry, if there is any truth to the subject implicated in the question, it is morally imperative that the information is shared.

Morally imperative....which particular moral could you possibly be referring to? I didn't comment on Jet Airways Bonny because I don't work for them. Importantly however is the difference between two people having an argument in flight and this issue which I have zero knowledge of btw. If, hypothetically a pilot in my company left the flight deck and behaved erratically to the point where his colleague locked him out I would be concerned for his mental health and wish them well. It's the moral associated with concern for my work colleagues and respect for their privacy. Guess you and I differ on that but I respect you have an opinion.

SOPS/Bonway

Considering you've both left this Company, you share an almost unhealthy obsession with your continuous little digs at those that remain. Sad that you and others still feel the need to post constant derogatory comments about your ex airline and ex colleagues. Trying too hard to justify the move perhaps? Time to move on gents and get on with your new life, especially you SOPS.

Haven't you got your big train set to play with and dogs to walk?

Harry
Harry, i have to say, i find your comments a bit harsh.. I went out today and "played with my big Train set' as you chose to call it...I then got home, after 6hour 30 shift including a 50 minute ' afternoon tea break' to yes..walk the dogs.

why do I remain interested on this forum? Because just because you leave EK, does not mean you leave your friends behind you. I am in constant contact at the moment with a friend about to upgrade...he is asking many questions....and im wondering if he is a bit too soon, too early...but we will see.

So Harry, please dont knock those of us who have chosen to leave but keep active on these forums..when we leave, we leave ( at least some of us) good friends behind and we remain concerned for their welfare....

So rather than arguing amongst yourselves, remember this is a rumour network, has anybody got any information that can either answer the initial question "Any inside regarding BKK/SYD Cpt. being locked out and FO solo landed?" or put it to bed?
Thanks

What’s a worse condition?
Someone who has left the company and has a look on PPRuNe or a pilot still at EK telling himself and everyone else that Emirates is a great airline?
The autocratic style and work environment here does severe damage to ourselves and I think this is reflected in some posts defending the indefensible.

I thought the 'individual in question' on this post was flight crew not CC? Or are you talking about the 'other' in flight incident with the purser/capt?

Regardless, EK being EK the full story will probably never come out and the Whatsapp brigade will distort it to be more entertaining/shocking

If the "news" on the CC facebook page is untrue then I feel deeply sorry for the individual. Such a vicious rumour (if untrue) will stick like mud and ruin the individuals career.

There's something missing here. It's called Professional Respect.
You could also add Integrity.
I only know the rumours I've heard and if true, this person probably needs medical assistance but as I'm a pilot, not a qualified practitioner, I'll hold my peace.

With 4,000 (overworked) pilots and 20,000 (equally overworked) cabin crew there are bound to be a number with mental health issues. If we had the kind of caring company culture where people weren't afraid to make such issues known the airline would be a better and safer place.

With regards to the other topic that has generated discussion concerning our colleague prior to him joining EK, can I suggest you carry out your own research and then you will be able to establish for yourself if these allegations have any truth to them, or not.
