So to be factual POHMS or POME (google it) weíre sent to Australia. Therefore over time most Australian families, who have been in Australia some time, could be related to a POHM or POME.
I laugh when I hear ďwhining PomĒ as most aussies have scant knowledge of the history and nowadays with all the whinging going in Australia, itís easy to see these Aussies definitely have picked up the trait from their distant relatives!!!!

can we now get back to rumors as opposed to the usual slagging off!

So the largest profit share I remember was 14 weeks back in 2010?We made more than the profit made back them in the first 6 months. So surely 14 weeks is a starting point,!!,
We’ve raked in the profits since then. so therefore it’s got to be way in excess of 14 weeks.

remembering they still need to repay me 2 months salary they took from me during covid! So therefore I’m needing minimum 14 + 8 = 22 !

I bet they’re working overtime to work out how they can justify giving us less, which I know they will!!!

Paying $3.1 billion back to Dubai should do it.

When last did EK pilot get a salary adjustment? I'm not trying to start an anti-EK rant please. Just a simple question.

1percent was a fair pay deal and very close to inflation. Pilots should count themselves lucky to have any increase last year !

Mike - could you label your post sarcastic 😀
Many of the potential joiners to EK have no idea what sarcasm is, possibly because they don’t understand it!
I’m sure many will already be saying that inflation in Dubai is soooo low and pay is keeping up with inflation therefore EK is an even better option NOT!

Yip are all stupid. We donít have a clue. We havenít flown for other international carriers. We haven't lost our jobs due to Covid. We donít have families to feed and educate. We arenít asking questions, so we can make informed decisions. Oh yes, and we ALL have passports that let us work anywhere in the world we want.

Thank god for your sage wisdom.

So being rather cynical it looks like EK is splashing it’s money around everywhere (interior upgrades, ICE upgrades, new training colleg) in a bid to lower the profits this year so they don’t repay us the money we’re owed plus give us a well deserved bonus,

How they break the law by not repaying salary owed to staff and totally disregard the subject is staggering- plus even more amazing people try to join knowing this is going on!

typical EK, isnít it?
with record profit year just before bonus announcement STC announced to purchase of 240 RR engines for the whale
this behavior is not exactly new, but marks a new low as people have given a lot in the past 3 years and again the acknowledgement is even worse than before.
but donít worry the managers will get their share of the well handled Covid crises.
not to say that Dubai is again making a fortune over the gas price.

and a law is just as good as you Someone to execute it, where in case of EK not even a lawyer would touch EK because of the obvious reason.

Wasnít their recently a pilot being removed from roaster because he wrote about job security. I think thatís says it all

Yes, I think a Swedish FO - came too close to the truth in a social media post, removed from roster within minutes.
These are the things the ďnewbiesĒ and guys queuing chose not to take note of until itís too late!

I don't have all the facts but I also saw the screenshots of his roster + social media post. Closer examination revealed the social media post was made a couple of weeks after his removal from roster. I have no idea why he was let go and wouldn't want to dig into his personal affairs but suffice to say the truth was somewhat different to what was implied with the screenshots that were doing the rounds.
