Well, I know for a fact what didn't happen. Keep up the name calling chap - it shows your lack of maturity and people here can see you for what you really are.

I think if people are getting fired for social media posts on a regular basis it absolutely does concern anybody working for, or thinking about working for, the airline in question.

Rumor has it that fly Dubai bonus already posted! That’s really early to say what the bonus is! Is G Al G doing it to wind up EK!
Seems to be about 3 months?

So EK better give that minimum for everyone PLUS additionally give the money back to those it was taken from on top of the bonus!

Or else what exactly? Are you going to quit and grace us risky inexperienced wannabes somewhere else with your wisdom, or are you going to stay and continue to moan yet actively discourage the aspirations of the next generation.Surely a man as experienced as you could find a decent gig somewhere? Sad.

Big fat lady,
Even sadder.
Move on for god's sake, its not healthy.

Assess Action Manage. They should give back the halfpay. Unfortunately it is a "should" and not a "shall". See OM-A for clarification. What to do..

Rumor has it Flt Dubai are doing EBB layovers. So why is EK still doing the monstrously long EBB turnarounds?
Too many guys not willing or able to put in fatigue / safety reports.?

Guys who are willing to put a fatigue / safety report are no longer in the company . They eliminated any resistance

I know there are still fatigue ASRs but I donít know whether the flight safety department have been told no to publish them on the weekly safety update?
(Iíll have to trawl through to see - but have better things to do at moment!)

Timing.. FD leaves just before 6am and EK around 10am so Flt duty limitations would be different

Which hotel in EBB out of interest for FD?

Also yes it is monstrous, but better done in a triple than A320 if you know what I mean.

EBB has traditionally been a layover. Good hotel on Lake Victoria. Give it time.

We use 3 for over 8 hours block time. I was just wondering if EK had similar rules.

After 8 hours EK regards two crew as just nicely warmed up. So no, EK doesn't have similar rules.
