Good news for some of the guys coming back who will now
get the accommodation allowance$! That will certainly entice more to rejoin.

Good news for them indeed but what a slap in the face for people who have been here years. They have been forced to go through the hassle and cost of a move to a place they don't want to be only to be told the rules are now different to new joiners - but they still can't opt-out.

I'm not talking about the redundant guys who have been recalled. I am talking about people applying now who have never worked for the company before and are now able to join on a better deal than the people who have been here for years.
Maybe that wasn't clear in my original post.

is this confirmed? I didn’t think external recruitment had begun - anecdotally only applications..

I think at the moment it is just applications as the company builds up a pool of victims potential employees. The point is that these future employees will not be forced into the Maydan labour camps that the long term workers are now stuck in.

sorry - my post wasn’t clear. The confirmation I was after was about the allowance being offered to new joiners. Certainly is a more appealing proposition, if that’s on the table.

It is confirmed. And you get the first 6 months in advance, then monthly. Just to stick it to the present employees a bit more.

The company has always been abysmal when it comes to proactive planning with anything linked to HR. The perpetual arrogance of management gave them the impression that once the doors were opened, the floodgates of former employees would return, but it would seem that is not the case. TC remarked on CNBC during the air show that it was proving to be ‘difficult’ to get the number of 380 pilots that are needed and he described the pilot community as being a ‘precious commodity’. Overtones seldom heard from the man himself.

The initial foundations have been laid for creating a two tier system of terms and conditions for new joiners and existing employees and if not corrected in some shape or form, will only result in morale sinking further. The next six months to a year will be telling and perhaps I have been in EK for too long but even the reimbursement of the six months salary seems a step too far!

Shame they didn’t realise that before they did what they did.

How much is the live out allowance for FOs atm? Confirm they are paying 6 months in advance?

Do ek still offer the relocation allowance to being your stuff over? Used to be around 45k dhs ?

2 weeks in hotel to get you started still?

I resigned ek in 2018 due to family reasons but keen to go back if the numbers work out better than last time..

Appreciate your replys.

I don’t know how tctc can say that he is struggling to get crew. Not one of the fried 600 have been contacted as far as I know. I don’t know how many of the second batch have been contacted but none of my acquaintances in that group have received a recall. He may have an issue training crew but that’ll happen when you dump a large number of your training staff.

I find it ironic that they demote and fire for poor decision making in the sim but when you’re the CEO, in the real world, no one bats an eye when you c@ck up because of poor decision making.

What a difference, furniture allowance thirty years ago: AED48,000.00
