Lots of empty promises and using a lot of words without saying anything most likely

So Pif Paf despite saying in an earlier post you would ask the questions for me , you didn't.
In a much older post on this board you prattle on about back in the day the senior guys would ask the questions. Isn't that your job now?
I suppose due your advanced years your scrotum is so wrinkly it would struggle to produce any testicular fortitude so its understandable.

There is a post in the Australian forum about a rumour of Emirates pondering over overseas bases. Truth or fantasy?

Ek won’t do basings. Pilots based in other countries would come under those countries specific employment and labor laws, EK doesn’t like being told by others what to do!
Case in point, years ago a ground staff in USA asked to be given US statutory 12 weeks maternity leave, The base needed to get a temporary replacement while she was away. This had to be approved by AAR (yes he micro manages to that level), he was furious she was allowed so much time off and told USA manager to tell her she could not take so long! AAR only agreed when it was pointed out how much it would cost in law suits if they didn’t allow her time off.
Having pilots in different counties operating under different laws to UAE is seen as a lose lose situation by the control freaks at EK

If the Caprine Carrier down the road offer basings that may put pressure on other middle-east-airlines to do the same.

Heard from a friend in another airline down the road that they heard we can expect 44 weeks and a pay rise.

A350

Any idea what the 350 will do? Are they coming with or without CRC?
Rumours from training that it will only have Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy classes.
Will it mean more useless new joining FOs from substandard airlines?

You gotta prove you're Australian, don't you? Never heard anything good about Australians in a cockpit, no wonder no surprise.

What's the new package looking like?

I think itís best left to the Australians. Flying to Africa and Indian wonít be much fun. Unless you are South African and want to tell everyone how you used to fly a piston engine into all the dark holes of Africa. Pun intended.
Canít imagine being served by GR1s is any better than GR2s.
At least the GR2 are pretty and donít have that sour face that so many of our wonderful crew have.
