Oh wait, thatís two problems. Yeah thatís one problem too many so Iím staying where I know Iím abused. Where I am forced to work almost 100 hrs a month, day or night, where my internet is blocked, where my money is rapidly diminishing. EK is the place for me.

Your not forced to work 100 hours a month, you were never forced to join Emirates in the first place....you chose to. This same information about Emirates has been on PPRuNe and other sites for the last 15 years yet you chose to go anyway. You have nobody to blame but yourself yet your trying to lecture/guide others with your exaggerated facts and it's getting old. If you don't like it leave Emirates and go get a DEC job at Endeavor until you can get your prized job at Delta. Just go away...people like you are toxic in any organization good and bad.

Hopefully, the Delta interview process will pick up on your egotistical, boastful, know-it-all, and negative mindsets and fix the problem before you go there and find a bunch of new things to complain about.....Grass is always greener, right.

Well, I reckon the grass is a whole lot greener in the US, and pretty much everywhere else, than the UAE. And hell, it doesn't need watering 6 times a day with human faeces fertiliser to keep it that way either.

But you know, keep telling yourself life is good in the Middle East. Each to their own.

If you re-read my post, my beef was with his inaccuracies and condescending attitude towards other people who chose to stay or who are not ready to leave yet. Simple as that.

You have never seen me respond to any other negative posters....mostly because I agree with them.

It really is a shame that the operators in the region treat their front line workers like garbage. And then when you quit to go to a better company, they canít understand why and cry foul.
After they've stolen from you for years, lied to your face on every occasion, mistreated you, encouraged you to break the law to save a buck, etc... somehow they are the victim.

I know crews with most operators in the region. Almost all have been asked or instructed to fudge flight and duty limits.

[QUOTE=TransitCheck;10282625]If you re-read my post, my beef was with his inaccuracies

According to Transit what inaccuracies are we talking about?

Are you not flying close to 100 hrs a month?
Are you not flying day and night to 6 continents?
Is your internet not blocked?
Do you feel like youíre not getting abused?
If you donít believe you are then this is the place for you.

Just go away.........If you donít like it leave......
Yes this place is perfect for you Transit. Youíve become one of them. Forget about all the options, Emirates is your kind of airline.

Seems like i will not join to emirates after all these negative feedbacks. Plus they stopped paying for accomodation and only offering their apartments. Why dont we gather all together and start a new airline company with 100 percent crew happines ?

One can only tell themselves that life is good in the Middle East and at EK for so long. It's like a volcano. After some time the pressure builds and you eventually blow and not in a good way.
Where is Harry? Rumour has it he interviewed at EJ a few weeks back. Wonder if he is going to accept the job and leave Emirates. Tell us Harry.

I think that for a lot of people, working in the Middle East was their indoctrination to the majors. People quickly get the sense that itís the standard, or they get hooked on the Kool Aid and honesty believe itís the best there is.
Sure you can do a lot worse than whatís on offer in the UAE. But you can also do far, far better.
