EK Bus fleet warning letter writer change of guard.

Rumour has it Gay Tom is on the way out. We should run a poll on if anyone cares who will take his place?

Pedant alert - a POLL might work better. Unless you feel like a shafting

Is there anybody left who fills the desirable EK requirements for the position?

Is a warning letter not the end of a career in said airline? As I understand it an airline only sends something like that out only if they want get rid of you...nicely!!

Does send a message though. There have been a mass exodus of office types in the past 18 months...ever wonder what they know that we don't?

If we donít know whatís going on here then we have our head in the sand so deep nothing else matters.
Intuitive pilots have known for years this ship is sinking and itís not getting better.

gta, if EK got rid of everyone they sent a warning letter to they'd have a workforce 1/10th the size...

Warning letters are just a way for certain managers to look busy and like they know what they're doing.

A small fraction would actually be genuinely earnt

Most likely Al Whatshisname will take his place.

lol.

I am sure that there is no Management shortage either, especially with the amount of Al (insert last names here) in Management Cadet Training.

@gtaflyer Sadly, you understand it incorrectly. Warning letters in EK are given out with about the same frivolity as a phaedophile giving candy to small children. If a warning letter was akin to a gentle shove out the door, 3/4 of the fleet would be parked due to pilot shortage.

I have to disagree from what you say. My understanding is about right regarding the warning letter. If you get one of these and I was given a talk by chief pilot of the past that actions would warrant/ constitute sending such a letter means detriment to the said pilots career. Why because if you were honest to the next recruitment airline that you did receive one of these golden handshakes that they would not be interested in hiring you. So I think if an airline practices this then they are effectively nail in the coffin of a pilots aspirations. This is what airline is doing they holding gun to your head future command upgrade refusal etc. I’m sorry I have no patience for any airline that throws out these letters willy nilly. Yes you can lie and say you receive no such letters but upon asking chief pilots may I have reference they will indeed check your file and maybe report them. Like I said it nearly happen to me over dress code and wanting to meet a manager without invitation in past airline..some cabin crew I met have said to me they also had to leave over trivial matters resulting from warning letters.
