Cannot blame Brian. Many better opportunities back in Europe, without the stresses of living in Dubai.

Brian, no conscience, defended the indefensible, did what he was told without question, took the money, like most other SVPs he couldn’t care about anyone else but himself,.
I think easy jet pilots cheered when he left, the same will happen here!
The next SVP will be the same,they have to be to get the job.

other rumors?

High numbers of “millennial” cabin crew apparently leaving within first few months of joining when they realize it’s not as much fun as they thought plus they have to actually work! Some resigning on flights!

High resignation rate of trainers !

maybe Brian’s running away from the growing pot of poop,

Pleased to see the back of another useless waste of space SVP- criminal.

Happy with any bonus, I’d assume 3 weeks.

It looks like 'enhanced contracts' are back to attract more experienced applicants. Meanwhile we are all left 5000AED+ down, better to resign and reapply. Another British 'yes man' to replace Brian no doubt

They’ll never do worldwide basings as there are things called “unions” which means Ek will have less control of those based away!

paying us back what at we are owed would help, a bonus ON TOP of that would help, anything else is not satisfactory.

As for enhanced contracts, it shows that Ek is struggling to find satisfactory applicants!

Not everywhere has unions and even in countries where they do, it is not at every airlines. Employment labor laws is more the issue I think.

Airbus has apparently offered EK the 350 earlier than expected, but flight oops now don’t have enough pilots to cover it, the 380 and 777 so they’re back pedaling rapidly.

Flight ops now have not enough pilots, not enough cabin crew, plus fleet worried as many senior guys would probably bid to go on 350; therefore reducing experience levels overall on 777 and 380 in LHS. Paired with lots of new pilots from the academy with nil experience means the insurers are not happy either, leading to insurance premiums going up , costing more which annoys the accountants and you know they run the airline!!!

it seems to be that it would had paid off to apologize to all those and having been sent into trouble, rather than keeping the „I cannot loose my face „ mentality up.
karma is bitch and it’s bitting EK finally.

how much is it worth to keep your face, and being unable to fulfill business demand, because of the Missmanagements done in EK, arrogance and personal greed for power.
i hope that EK managers are satisfied that former Employees are struggling to survive.

No problem, Brian gets the blame for the crewing fiasco and departs with a nice big golden goodbye. Face is saved. He is replaced with more of the same and the wheels on the bus go round and round (until they eventually come off).

yeah if Brian is really leaving the successor will be an insider and I got a good guess which 3 three are in a close loop for that post. They are well known already for their empathy towards their pilots. They are liked by AAR because they never said no to him.
