Not today, they just sent a "random" text message, as they always do every Thursday after 5 pm, saying to acknowledge their roster change. This is a meeting (MTG) scheduled for Sunday and mostly on Monday for the chosen ones

But to answer your question I think whatever was left minus the examiners, give and take another 150 pilots? Plus the flight attendants...

As far as I can tell is around 75 pilots with the MTG assignment for sunday and monday. Only TRE and TRI are left, around another 25 expats.

Imagine a 7 hours flight time to LHR on a fancy first class being attended only by male crew 🤣🤣...I would definitely ask for a reimbursement if I’m a pax. 🤦🏼‍♂️

Strange. I got an email from WY that said they would restart a lot of flights on Oct 1. BTW, the "best" review on WY business class I have read, was a passenger who entered the galley to find one of the male cabin crew sitting there cutting his toenails.
Who is going to do all the night flights to India if the expats go home?

A frightening prospect.

Xulu is right.

The most worrying (sic.) jet flying I ever came across was alongside Libyan line captains, freshly trained on the A320. Their over-confidence and inflated egos led us towards some very uncomfortable situations. (To be fair, the Cubans were no better,)

Our rules did not permit full local crews to operate as pairs. Only one in either the left or the right seat.

So, I too would not choose to travel in the future with any ME carrier which is densely-populated by local crews.

These days, I just have one word to describe Oman Air and is “disappointment”...WY is a completely disappointment. They are the example of how to do things wrong, being disrespectful and totally ungrateful to the people who had been supporting the company for many years since the beginning. They are driving a car against a wall at 200km/h and the hit is gonna be so damn hard. For those young pilots and captains just upgraded, get ready guys, because for the first time in your whole life, things won’t be easy as you were used to. Now you will understand what “hard work” means.

I wish you all the best in this new beginning without foreigners by your side...and remember that many of you are in that current position because either at your left or your right, there was an expat instructor sharing his knowledge with you.

Mr Argentina (MC24) your qoutes 'They are driving a car against a wall at 200km/h and the hit is gonna be so damn hard For those young pilots and captains just upgraded" if that is/was your opinion you should have raised your concern then or you could have just left long time ago and you could have tried to reapply to Copa if they will have accepted you!

"remember that many of you are in that current position because either at your left or your right, there was an expat instructor sharing his knowledge with you" I agree with you but that goes for everybody expat or local!!, you learn everyday in aviation until the day you retire.

Wish you good luck in your new career .

Dreamer 787 is right, if Mc24 would have raised a concern, he would definitely be listened and no one wouldve been fired.

i guess the nickname dreamer suits you. Are you serious?

Hahahaha keep “dreaming” man. If you know me so good, text me on WhatsApp or come to see me, we can talk face to face, or
maybe you call sick...

Why would I go back to Copa if I’m the one who left?

Raised a concern? Really? They call you guys to the office to drink coffee and eat dates, nothing else.

I’m not wasting my time anymore here with you guys. We talk in a few months.

Good luck in your career.

Don't bother with the trolls.
When they can't argue the facts or the topic they'll take potshots at the person.
Best to ignore the dimwits.

What happened guys? Not even a week and crew planning is already scheduling expats for the flights? 🤣 damn that was fast! There’s not 10 aircrafts flying and they cannot get locals to do the flights...unbelievable 🤦🏼‍♂️

You need to get out of that small box you are in ,that was for the guys who were in the office asking for flights and simulators so they can be current on type despite being terminated! so its easier to get a job elsewhere!, I guess its a human nature...all the best mate.

Well done mate. You've managed to poke the beast and inadvertently made sure that no pilot on their 3 month's notice is allowed on layover flights. Congrats are in order for your stupidity..
