We is not EK - as any normal company would consider this - EK is different, they know better, they do better and give a sh…… about the individual

When I was back at EK we routinely flew brutal westbound redeyes over 8 hrs of block (MNL-DXB comes to mind), even when an established pairing would be right on the cusp of needing an augment, management would codify a carveout blessed by the regulatory authority and codified in the OM-A (FOM/GOM) in US speak!

Well one of the rumors was true, CPB leaving.
Personally he treated me well and tried to help when he could but very restricted in what he was allowed to do by those above him and the EK system!
I wish him well wherever he is going.
Trouble is, who will we get next!

Perhaps SP the East German will be available, he was always good at motivating the troops!

The announcement is still at least 2 weeks away, why would you expect a fanfare now?

So while we all hold our breaking hoping for a decent bonus but in reality expecting less hears some more rumoours:

TC and hierarchy visit airbus to discuss A380 spar cracks.

Doctors - not enough + Dentists - not enough - medical services warned months ago but seem incapable of looking long term!

crisis management in full swing as per usual!

There has been a shortage of doctors and especially dentists for years! Nothing new there.

who needs doctors or dentists in EK
you are not supposed to be sick at all - they rather get rid of you than taking care.
in fact if a previous employment had to many sick days and medical costs passed a certain level, it is reason enough to get a call to come back - so no need for doctors - EK crisis management

As far as I am concerned, the dental clinic is the best thing about the job! Excellent care and treatment. Probably explains why getting an appointment with the dentist is always a gargantuan challenge!!

An absolutely exceptional set of results, in every sense. Anybody tempted to join now because they beleive that will ever be repeated is in for a big disappointment, although I'm sure the recruitment team will be spinning the numbers like a frisbee. A large number of employees who have contributed to that profit have been in the company less than a year (in many cases less than 6 months) and so aren't eligible for the full amount - that leaves more to spread around among the rest. Next year the target is higher and there will be more eligible employees, so don't get your hopes up that this is the start of a new trend.

And at the risk of sounding like a miserable old git, 24 weeks doesn't even pay me back for the unpaid leave I was forced to take during Covid. So yes, it's nice to have, but I'm only clapping with one hand.

As VC10L1011 said, keep rowing.
