The COVID pandemic just further proved they couldn’t care less about their employees, didn’t even try and make repairs afterwards. Do you really think they will change?

Good luck those joining because you and your families are going to need it come the next challenge the company faces. You have been warned,….

Not all pilots are born equal. It's a controversial but immutable fact that we have a lot of dead wood within the industry who have required chopping into bits.

We will all overcome the next challenge as we did with the pandemic, open honest and regular communications, we will all stand by EVERY employee and their families and always do the right thing. We always do, you are all our biggest asset and we appreciate everything you do.

Ps I'm a sky god.

Yer rumours already beginning about slowing down recruitment, defo not the safest place to be joining right now. A380 job in the ME is probably the least secure flying job on the planet when times are tough (saw that 2020) . The guys who arrived just before the pandemic left dubai before their cases arrived!

Very worrying re the looming recession, very probably the biggest any of us will ever see.

I'm sure the last ones to return last will have a mark next to their name for leaving first. My advice to them would be get out quick!

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, or something along those lines.

covid has very well demonstrated last in is not first out
I other words every single one, except friends off the 3rd floor up or locals get a pass for survival, anyone else has a target on his back saying “kick me”

It's an unpopular and immutable fact but I am one of the greatest pilots to grace the world, so I'll be safe.

Still those who left out of seniority and rejoined towards the end despite being in the company longer than many others probably still have a mark next to their names, don't tell me EK gave them a clean start, no chance!

EK380 will always be a risky job in aviation, yet guys come! (Not always the smart ones)

If anyone would like a glimpse of how toxic the company is, have a read of what Crispy C wrote on his LinkedIn. Whilst in the midst of a global pandemic. As mass redundancies were taking place.

Funny how any thread about emirates descends into absolute anarchy.
The best part about it, most of the posts are true.
Good luck to any new joiners.

Welcome to the mad house.

Im with nervous on this one. I think he would be worried about his own position over the pandemic and that appalling linked in post was red meat to the EK gods. Scary that he nearly got deputy chief pilot airbus.

Ah yes, did a few wash up with him. Complete waste of time, everybody brought up missing step as the main issue and then we continued to miss the step for the next two years. Complete waste of time. Wished us all good luck before our sims though.

Save your energy and just apply to Qatar. More money and more hours. Means you can get out of the Middle East quicker and back to civilisation. Live style in any of these Persian Gulf states is the same.

What are the chances of being called with ATR or dash 8 turboprop hours? I know they count as they are >20T, but are people actually being called with them or are they last priority behind 737/320 rated?
