Red face

I knew him years ago. He was sometimes a bit of a pain in the proverbial alright, but that was a long time ago.
I thought he'd have mellowed with age. I also thought that he'd be a supporter of the guys on the line too.
What happened??

Question

Initial query was the fate of VEI, not of any particular individual. Does anyone have an update on the status of the sale of the airline?

Your first query nothing has happened and I am not very sure anything will.
As long as dc is around nobody is going to stay.
What has he done,what hasn`t he done is the question.Let me see there is the salary issue not to mention overtime,sickness,leave.
I am sure I have forgotten something anyone care to add.

I hear that the original DFO (JR) has resigned. That means the saftey officer and now the assistant director of training have resigned. Is this the flood gates opening and still the others do not know if they will have a job after the end of March.
It seems that if the managment don't announce something soon that a full exodus will follow.

Muppet is right about a mass exodus, the CEO asks that everyone be patient but either they come out with details on a buyer pretty soon or there won't be any pilots left. GO,EZY and the Ryans are not going to wait around for commitments for too much longer.

Goodbye JR you will be sadly missed, lets hope we can give you a parting gift of the two assasins out before you go.

Aeroflot scratching its head over some EU/non-EU issues, it seems. If that does not work out, not sure what options would be left.

The day of reckoning may be nigh!!

I hear on the grapevine that the FR's were doing sim checks today!!

I wonder if any of the VEI lads and lassies were strutting their stuff in the St Thetic.

The book of EXODUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey KAT TOO, fear not Baldy is alive and kickin'. But don't remember ever being the other half of the rabbit sh*ggin' society - seem to remember the little french birdy one being your arseistant.....

Muppet - get a life. Sure there probably were the odd individual getting sim rides with the lower ranks. That don't mean FR are rewriting the book of Exodus. Seem to remember VEI started on the back of a mass exodus in the other direction. Gotta lose some very big guns before the books are balanced my friend.....

It pays to remember BMC that a flood starts with a dribble!!!!!!!!!!!

It also seems that I have read on this Forum that the bids for the airline were only opened last week. If this is the case and as we can see there has still been no announcement of a buyer maybe the lads and lassies have decided that time is up. This would mean that we have only possibly seen the start with the exit of the ex DFO.
