Unhappy

Not a good time to be made redundant by any carrier. Didn't make it past the interview day with AL a few years ago and looking at some of the posts here, I'm sort of glad I things broke as they did.

Out of curiosity, what sort of joining date puts a pilot below the cut-off point for the redundancy?

"It soons starts to feel like the pilot group is being scapegoated, or made into an example for the education of others within the company."

But thats normal procedure for anyone at Aer Lingus , is it not?

Can't comment on overcrewing, but what I can comment is on the incompetent management, got all caught up in the celtic tiger boom of the last 5 years, and made no allowances. Poor show.

No more champer din-dins at fitzers I see <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Besides little has changed in attitude at cunning in the last two decades , worst misfortune was was bernie falling of his boat along with 911

farrenfour, not sure I agree with you about Bernie. I don't think history will be that kind to him and his stewardship of AL.Particularly in the last four years.After all he did preside over an airline which ,it seems, can sustain 1600 redundancies.
