Air Atlanta/ACE break up

Early evening drinking pals tell me that Air Atlanta have dropped Air Crew Executive as their prime contacing agency and are now employing a new company based in the Channel Islands to provide the much needed 747 crews.All the talk is about what the Irishman had done wrong to deserve this..or is it just him with another name.They did'nt think it changed anything..but perhaps will stop the promised improvements the Irishman had made about contracts.Its still as good as Neighbours....roll the credits

Not good news Abra, because it was always some tiny Irishman that was involved. Sometimes he was external, sometimes internal. Let us all hope he's a new Irishman that hasn't just shifted his house to a stick of rock halfway between 2 mainlands

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's another ACE like company called Airborne. It's the same set up as ACE, $$ just going to different people. (according to pilots in AAI). Also, apparently no one has taken the "new and improved" contract.

Thanks Kato747

There is a job posting on http://www.flightdeckrecruitment.com/jobs.asp
for B747 Captains and F/Os. It is posted by a UK-based technical recruitment agency on 13th Nov 2003. Is this for Air Atlanta? more information would be appreciated.

Yes this is Air Atlanta and they are desperate. But the same lousy contract under a different name.

AAI had, at one time an 'ok' salary package.
Straight salary for a month, with overtime starting at 75 hours.
Then someone in the head shed decided that the $250/$175 per day scenario was a better idea..read cheaper/lower payroll burden for the company.

Now of course this simply does not cut the mustard, paywise.

So, folks say goodbye whenever possible...and suspect it will stay that way.
The additional training costs must be rather expensive.

Earl! My Old son..... If you haven't asked the question yet....
Airborne is just a replacement for ACE.

Send an email to Airborne on their zone4u.org site and see who answers your questions.

Yep, you guessed it, the "POISON LEPRECHAUN"!

Come on, Jerry...get a grip....trying to sell a 16-21% pay CUT as a good deal just beggars belief!
