Re: EK recruitment

['m wondering how many off laid-off staff will stay there: life is really expensive, employment possibilities must be scarce at the moment for that kind of profiles and most of them are foreigners with probably little ties in UAE. So hiring them back is obviously an option but it may not be as stra...

Re: EK recruitment

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...

Re: Rumour: Emirates to decommission 40% of A380 fleet

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.

All pilots on 50% basic salary.

Redundant pilots go back to 100% for the three months of the their notice period.

Re: Rumour: Emirates to decommission 40% of A380 fleet

Pilots on dry fruit forum always said 40 x A380s is the maximum EK ever needed even during aviation boom, but what do they know, they just have load and trim sheet, management is the one with the big picture and vision. Wait, load and trim sheet tells the loads. Although in fairness they were 777 d...

Re: Emirates Chairman slams other airlines and Airbus for mishandling and retiring A380

The comparison of 10 777w v 7 380's is interesting, but the Fuel and or Flight Deck crew cost metric is most likely less then 50% of the cost. I think EK states that Fuel is about 40% of operating costs, the other major cost which we have very little data on is the capital cost of the aircraft. I wo...

Re: Emirates renegotiating 777X order

With regards to the "Change of Strategy" clearly this is the case, the original strategy was 777/380 and they assumed the markets would meet the capacity they added, this worked for some time until saturation and competition caught up. The "Strategy" has changed, they have made a...

Re: Tim Clark: A380's advantages over twinjets still 'enormous'

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....

Re: Emirates A380 diverted to Larnaca after birth of a baby on board #EK75

The Pregnant Lady gave birth just as the Aircraft Touched down in Larnaca. At the time of the decision Larnaca was the nearest sui...
