EK resignations on the up again...
 
I'm hearing rumours that since the wonderful pay review that resignations have shot up. That helped along by GCAA releasing letters so that people have been able to provide then to requesting airlines.

Does the increase in pilots leaving EK surprise anyone? Who is going to stay at this dump with so many better options available? Itís not like we canít more money and work less hours in a civilized country.

Fear not! Apparently everything will be back to normal by the Autumn (1.40 onwards)

I can see we have now the exact same number of pilots we had back in sep 2016. Not sure how many airframes were added or returned in this period.

Mfan.

And what will that look like after the Summer peak? I'm anticipating record numbers parked in November.

Maybe weíll pick up some pilots from Turkish.

They get paid in Lira.......

Do you recommend ek for turkish people? Unfortunately lira is in a big big trouble nowadays.

For sure, the money is much better @EK. I'd suggest you take some time and read the forum. There is a reason why EK is short on pilots.

Out of interest, it seems like a lot of people (flight deck crew) don't like EK, and the way they look after crew. Low pay etc. Would this have ANY adverse affect on safety? I ask as an aviation enthusiast, but also, someone who will be travelling on EK in December/January.

Everyone does their best, but the experience levels have and continue to drop. Very experienced people leaving being replaced with very inexperienced. Draw from that what you wish.

Wouldnt worry, itís not just EK, itís the industryís problem. EK still try to get good folks and train them well, the FOs lack experience when they start but most will have been on the jet for a few years and passed the training. But why would a business let experience go just to save a few bucks. Welcome to globalization, you can always get someone to do it worse for less😉

For every 1 pilot that resigns, 2 join. This is a good thing obviously!

But the low pay and crazy work hours arenít a Deal Breaker? Who are we attracting?

fatbus 20th Aug 2018 22:43

For every 1 that resigns there is another that " retires" and or medical . Great spinning of stats! Just look at the totals at year end .

Hey Everyone - So, I'm seeing lots of comments suggesting there are better places than EK. Which airline would you suggest a Canadian airline pilot go to overseas in order to make good money, while living an acceptable lifestyle?

Has this particular change to the package occurred before?

In your opinion is there any chance that once company accommodation fills up again they'll reconsider offering the allowance?

Experience have shown that whatever was lost, it was lost forever...
