Ouch.

They really can't help themselves. I reckon this had the potential to be a really easy fix to some of the problems. A win/win, if you like.

Can't disagree with any of that. Like I said, I knew what I was getting in to. For those that didn't apply due diligence; I don't feel sorry for them, but regret the outcome.

No apology necessary. As I thought I'd clarified earlier; there was no bragging. Merely a statement. It's no secret. It's up to people to decide if that will work for them. Plenty say that it won't,...

I didn't come here expecting to better my conditions. That would have been equally out of sync with the rest of the industry. I knew exactly what I signed up for, and I've pressured nobody. While I'd...

How can you have a DTT when only one side collects tax?

Seems bizarre.

As I said before, under typical UK DTTs, it would be 'we will offset tax paid in Dubai'. Which is zero.

I can't see it...

I'll be intrigued to see what this could possibly look like, considering there is no income tax in the UAE (yet).

I don't know of any DTTs the UK has which differ from the basis that you'll pay...

Apples to pomegranates.

If a code share flight with Lion Air crashes, Lion are the ones who bear the publicity, regardless of the fact you bought the ticket on the Emirates website.

What's wrong in trying to better your conditions? You seem to be taking it all a bit personally, JT. It isn't. It's just the game.

Calm down, petal.

I wasn't defending the contract. I was telling it as I see it. My rocket science comment? That is based on my experience. I wrote in reply to an embittered colleague who was...

I'm glad you're pleased. I always heard good things from my friends there. It was saddening to see the uncertainty prevail in recent times, but hopefully that's behind you.

Who knows. Usually these things work out either very well or very poorly for the first sets of crew.

If you know you're going to leave at some point, you may be game to roll the dice.
