Probably ground based because whoever takes that poisoned chalice is going to be much too busy to do any flying!

Any truth to the following rumour? - "5000 cabin crew resigned in one month?" and - "They have lowered the age of cabin crew to 18"?

It's true they are still more short of crew than Captains. The manual has already been changed to show the recruitment age of new joiner crew can be 17, as long as they've turned 18 by the time they graduate training college. Not sure if they are actively recruiting this age group, but we'll see when the school term ends

I've never seen training college busier. The lifts are almost unusable, with hoards of crew waiting at each floor to squeeze into a space that never comes.

Last I heard was they’re trying to recruit 300 cabin crew per month knowing full well they are losing 150 per month- so covering loss but trying to increase numbers!
Many newbie cabin crew (within 6 months of starting) still resigning when they realize what the jobs really like, and remember these are the older ones! Heaven knows what economy full of 18 year old cabin crew will be like , pursers and CSVs told to take it easy with newbies already for fear that they might resign if told off!

This is simply underlings covering their arses, placating their bosses recruiting whoever they can without any thought of the outcome.

Does anyone really think that a average 17/ turning 18 year old is actually ready to leave home, move to the ME and work for EK. I reckon most would not last 6 months.

Gents you would be surprised maybe in your reality however check down the road at some of the LCC's

Lines longer than the office can handle for open days, people queuing outside of the building. Ready to leave home from Central Asia/North Africa/Far East and join as cabin crew.

For many of them an amazing opportunity and a good life ahead and all in DXB. Don't be surprised guys, EK would be a heaven. - Mostly make some $ and leave after a few years, but a great opportunity none the less and this is at the LCC's!

Just because they THINK they are ready and can handle it, does not mean they will. It is two very different things.

Sure seems like they can! Actually the problem is loosing them to the bigger ones even after a few months of experience! Anyway the no competes have already been drafted so that should fix it.

Well your comment is appropriately timed it seems.

Better get it stamped while you can!
