So hiring them back is obviously an option but it may not be as stra...Jump to post
They still have the fire the rest of the a380 pilots Highly unlikely as they are still taking delivery of new A380s. There is a false perception that EK has only terminated A380 pilots, fact is they are terminating across the board, all ranks, all fleets. The methodology is not known, they have for...Jump to post
The 25% is for people who can not be repatriated because of COVID etc after last day of service.
I think by Sept/Oct when all those made redundant reach their end of Service, it will be possible to arrange repatriation.

There is a lot of myths masquerading as facts on this forum, one of which is that EK's 380's have seats blocked on ULH routes.. This is not true, the 569T Aircraft can comfortabley operate over 14.5hrs with a full load, the newer 575T aircraft are capable of carrying a full load out to about 16 Hrs....Jump to post
