What needs to happen is that when those 40+ aircraft are parked at DWC, someone should take a photo showing the scale of the situation and send it directly to the boss, bypassing his minions, to show him what his staff are not.

I don't think there will be 40+ at any given time. The count seems to be cumulative. You can see it now. Drive along the road near DWC where the entrance to Dubai Airshow is. Most of the aircrafts can be seen parked there.

Why should you take a photo of aircraft and show STC. If he was proactive, all he needs to do is take a drive there and look, all he needs to do is go to rostering and ask the clerks how short of pilots are we, go to the hangar and ask how short of engineers are we. He doesnít seem to care, no one except the employees do.

Motley is right , STC only cares about the money . The sooner pilots realize they are hired labour the better off they will be . Full bucket = move on

SOPs .the manager of cabin crew, a grade 10 position, is saying hoo roo. His job is being advertised on internal vacancies. The low cost fella who replaced Terry Daly seems to have the same management style as ATC .Looks like more managers in service delivery are looking alsewhere.

People don't leave jobs, they leave Managers, or in this case zee Stasi MK2.

As for the rest thinking STC doesn't care, correct he doesn't, which shouldn't be a surprise BTW, he was allegedly overheard recently remarking as much during a luncheon in Europe.

I donít understand. Is it because they did not recruit enough pilots or is it because pilots are really leaving. Itís hard to believe that pilots would leave Emirates. This news is kind of shocking. I donít follow Middke East news so much but what is really going on here. This has been going on for sometime ?

Err - That article is utter shite. The numbers quoted are the pre-planned parking totals in each specific month.
Some braindead imbecile / someone with an agenda has added the three months totals up to make a big story...........
Reality is between 5% and 8% of the fleet in storage at DWC (without getting into whats also lazing around at DXB on low utilisation.....)
Oooh - and look, the highest parking month is the month most affected by Ramadan - who would of thought it?

I know for a fact that 777s are standing at DWC. Just trying to find out which A380s have gone.
