Hopefully as soon as possible in order that some more of our colleagues and their families can have their lives back?

Heard 50 have been recalled today which is great news.

I added that clown nimrodjoe to the ignore list some time ago. A mate has just shown me some of his/her/it recent screaming for attention posts, and I am really glad I did.

I recommend it.

You mean some of our colleagues who have been striving to feed their families over the last few months? No salary and no access to A+B Provident Funds... It's forced several to resign so wind your neck in!

Sound like a person who couldn't pass an A380 course

As White Knight says wind your neck in! Nimrodjoe you are an utter disgrace to your profession. Some highly experienced pilots have had there lives destroyed and you're bitching about losing "good flights" to the 380. More flights equals more jobs for your colleagues on the 380 which is fantastic news. You are a total see u next Tuesday...

Guys - cut nimrodjoe some slack. He was kept on by Ek because he is an elite, highly skilled, highly experienced FO. A team player and well, an all round pleasure to fly with………….

The Urban dictionary describes a Nimrod as being a stupid and incredibly annoying person.

Sounds about right.

So it seems 51 fellas called back. Fantastic news. Still hundreds waiting. Fingers crossed the recalls continue at an increasing pace.

it’s the internet, it attracts knob jockeys like him from time to time. No doubt plenty of time on his hands as the crew told him a differant time and place for their meet up on the slip.
we all know the type.

AAR stated "70-100 per month "

A lot more will be recruited by the end of July. Certainly worth waiting for.

Where you getting that from ? 70-100 brings back LWOP pilots in anticipation of Oz fights switching from 777 to 380 by years end ( another article) . Recruiting? Really ?

i think you are just trolling to get a response! Got your responses, feels good doesn’t it? Now move along or go on holiday (if your live-leave gets approved that is).

Glad to hear 380 guys being brought back. I think another pressing problem is to get some more engineers! It takes A LOT of work to get the A380 back into service and they’re short of mechanics and engineers!

It was just a little joke guys, he obviously meant no ill will and is harkening back (and almost taking a dig at) the whining of the 777 drivers of about 10 yrs ago.

Sounds more like the number of warning letters he wants to be sent out? Seriously though, the above figure came from the following article, which appears to be rather flexible with the truth!

The National - Emirates brings back 100 furloughed pilots per month as planes now 70 per cent full

BTW - great news on the further recall of 380 pilots!

Ditto about the comment regarding engineers made by Pif Paf. The chaps working in DWC to get the 380s ready again are working outdoors 24/7 in the horrendous dust and heat, since there is no hangar space available. Their workload has increased exponentially with around 30% less engineers available.

“Almost all of our Boeing 777 pilots are back at work “ is a quote from AAR according to the article…..really? I haven’t heard of a single one of the Fired600 777 pilots being recalled. It’s easy to say they are all back at work if you ignore the ones you binned !!! We obviously don’t exist….

It was so hot the other day, that the other pilot said “I am sweating like Nimrodjoe reading a book without pictures”

Dont bank on flying to OZ in any capacity anytime soon. We can’t even keep our major cities open. Melbourne and Sydney currently locked up like hens for a few weeks.

I would estimate OZ international at a trickle from 2023 at the earliest.
