Interesting. I heard in excess of 50 people. Who knows what's going on, I wish they would just communicate better.

I know about 10 777 and 787 FOs, me included going to Tower 2 tomorrow. I've also heard of some 777 Captains and A350 Instructor. Again, some of these things I know only by ear but the FOs are surely true.
I think it will happen over the course of the next few days. Apparently it is mainly the FOs now. I cross my fingers that it wont be too many! Good luck to everyone, I'll find myself in the complaining-about-no-jobs-section again now

Saddened to hear that man. Could I ask how many years have you been here?

All the FOs that I mentioned including me are here not long enough to receive EOSB. That'll tell you.
But the Captains I heard of were quite senior. Maybe above 60y, I don't know. So far, none of the fresh captains from my batch or the other batches I know have been called. Hoping it will stay like this but I believe that they've just started with the FOs.
Best of luck to you!

Any update?

Does anyone know how many people will be fired?

Will they be having meetings during the weekend too?

Uncertainity

There could have been better communication for sure. Sadly that doesn't exist here.

Lets be realistic” ME3 airlines are famous for No communication” The level of stress families are going through is unimaginable to the Lads sitting in Tower 1,2,3.

7 of my friends have been let go in a single day, the fear and shock we all have around us is unimaginable. Especially mpls with 500 hours 100,000 gbp in loan and a worthless license.

I still got 2 A330 and 4 A320 SOs in my batch that havent been fired yet, your information is wrong.
Also, as of yesterday a friend had a 787 SO in his batch who was still not laid off yet, just training suspended.
