After all, there must be a reason why they call it Guantanamo Airlines...

There was a pilot made series(I think YT, but not sure anymore) during my time with QR - must have been around 2007 or so about pilots in EK(black/white, made from clips of old movies). Any ideas about the name and how to find it again?

But even back then it was a clear warning for guys thinking to join EK. Or QR which is/WAS even worse. Or the other, unspeakable one that kills all threads because the airline is so fantastic and everyone just said so nice things about them.... Hell - it IS the ME. What do you expect?


Still, would love to see that old clips again - if someone could give me a link...

I left 3 years ago but still see the same people complaining instead of resigning, oh I forgot, the school, the car loan, the hours, the weather, the mortgage, so many reasons to stay.

so happy

So, so happy to have left. Thank God. Thank God.

Did not even realize how unhealthy it was, was so out of my mind there.

Thank God, life is so much better now.
