Thanks
Laws around living with partners have been relaxed, I think. Someone else correct me if I’m talking rubbish, but it seems that it’s acceptable now. They have to keep up with the times if they want people to move to Dubai.

Wouldn’t live in the marina mate. Heavy traffic and badly designed, very poor build quality. Not as bad as JLT but far from quality.
Energy prices going up so be careful there.

Yes and written warnings for all who were on unpaid leave because they attendance was been monitored.
Didn’t Gulf News or one of the other propaganda outlets say that emirates had furloughed their pilots.

Berry funny. Wallah my PA thought I had choked on a date with my morning coffee and was calling for help but when she walked in, she found me crying with laughter on front of my computer after reading that.

FT seems to suggest this isn’t going to be great.

id imagine many more redundancies in EK in the next couple of years. The question is how many ?

350 on the way. Expect redundancies on the 380 as they wind it down and hire direct entry on 350

Nervous has called this one right again.

Recession, quicker retirement of the A380. Redundancies on the 380 meanwhile recruiting A350 rated guys externally. saves a few dirham CCQ. That is exactly the type of thing emirates would do.

Can you imagine overcoming cancer but then in a global pandemic EK using that sickness against you to make you redundant and not let you return.

redunancies over fleet change is less likely
but what happen in the past and what imaginable is that a low time capo re-joiner will be transfered. And once he gets back to the hours promised to be required they will tell that does not count because he just joined

that happens in the past and will happen again
and the command a suddenly 3 years away at min

Yer remember those DECs on the 330 who went back in the right seat! Many hadn’t been in that seat for decades. Caused a lot of problems actually having these guys babysat by captains with far less experience in many cases.

If you wish to dig deeper in the archives you will find that when Emirates had 727s but A310s were on the way as replacements, all 727 pilots were told they would be let go. The rationale given was that any pilot accustomed to flying something as crude as a 727 would be incapable of adjusting to the complexity of the Airbus.

did not have the history back to the 727
but 310 fo short of command, than placed on 330 lost valuable hours due to fleet change.

That’s ridiculous! Imagine if they did that elsewhere ,be huge news.

Forcing people to live in Meydan south has been really bad . That has been make or break for many , I don’t see it as a reasonable long term option to spend your days off watching emirates cars buzzing by all day.

Why can some clowns in EK post on social media but others can't?

Wasn’t there some new joiner FO that was telling everyone how great he was on instagram. While everyone else was grounded and redundancies were taking place. No empathy or tact. Typical kind of moron you’d find walking around Meydan with a batty wife and daft outdoor reflective sunglasses.

They’ve increased the live out allowance but you can’t live out unless you buy.
Unless you are a brand new joiner then you have the option, while people who are here for years get stuffed into meydan, surrounded by the single biggest conglomerate of clowns the world has ever seen.

A lot of Airbus guys are incapable of adjusting to the complexity of an Airbus.

There’s a lad who’s wife’s a teacher at the local school overheard saying “the redundancies might mean my hubby gets a quicker command” Don’t know the name of the chap.

there always someone in EK who believes he/she are the ones who deserve better than others and only work for having a profit from other dilemmas. This is exactly why EK gets away with nearly everything.
