Cool
There's also the somewhat volatile discussion going on about FedEx and their operation with N-registered aircraft intra EU.

Delta recruiters are watching and reading these boards.

All of you cheerleading the ME Airlines and bashing Delta and the rest of the Airlines back home will have no chance for an interview with Delta.



I hope the other Airlines in the US to follow.

I have lots of friends at Delta and I am a frequent flyer.
I can't image leaving here for a first officer job there.
To each his own!

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've never had a bad experience in Dubai.
However, I was threatened with arrest in Dallas because of the actions of a friend ( Delta pilot), and I got the full Gestapo treatment from the police in Fayetteville, Georgia because I was lost.

Good ole usa has quite an active government to fear as well: TSA and ICE being the ones I deal with the most.
For me, it's actually quite relaxed here.

How about you quit baiting people? If you are an actual Delta pilot you need to show more professionalism. I am not an EK pilot, but I know plenty of very senior Delta pilots and they would show more respect to fellow pilots - regardless of their opinions. EK is a formidable competitor and their pilots have nothing to do with formulating competitive strategy, alliances, route selection, etc. Pilots are pilots with little control over what their airlines do.

To all EK pilots: Sniper does NOT represent the viewpoints of the vast majority of Delta pilots - I can say that after showing these posts to a very senior Delta pilot (relative of mine). He was not impressed. He also said you are welcome to apply to Delta and throw your hat in the ring if you so choose. That said, I doubt I would leave the left seat of a 777 either.

Express jet still?

try EK tell your friends to help you.

ALPA National is mainly ran by Delta pilots and we are all against the ME Airlines due to unfair treatment and subsidized position and advantage they have,

Tell that your Delta Senior Captain friends



Also tell your delta fiends, I was hired by Cobra Airlines not Delta .

If you are going to attempt a put down, at least try to spell the words in the correct tense! It is welcomed, not welcome! I imagine the Delta staffers reading your posts on here are wondering how the hell you ever got a job with them in the 1st place! I guess you only needed a pulse back when you got hired!

By the way, I think you meant the B747 and the B737 because that's what I flew before the B777! Reading comprehension, reading comprehension.

couple thoughts about ALPA and Emirates.

Emirates put food on the tables for 100's of American pilots that were furloughed from ALPA legacy carriers. Emirates took care of their "ALPA comrades" when no one else would.

Emirates was a good deal for a lot of Americans, they paid off their mortgages and got to see the world. Both good and bad parts. One hell of an education and great stories to tell the grandchildren.

The first Legacy to strike a deal with Emirates will win. JetBlue, Alaska, and Virgin America have the vision and see what a great deal it is, but don't have the fleet size or number of destinations Delta does. Let Emirates do what they are good at, widebody Int'l, let Delta do what they are good at, domestic.....

If Emirates could triple their JFK presence, Delta would have more passengers connecting than they would know what to do with. wouldn't that be good for Delta pilots? Or is this an Ego thing? Maybe that dream of being a widebody capt at Delta is over?

But British Airways with 25 U.S. destinations and Lufthansa with 17 are?

Korean Airlines has an equal number of U.S. destinations as Emirates. Why are you not attacking all of them?

Hi Chris,

Northwest would never hire someone like you. I hate to break it to you but Endeavor or Compass (not sure which one you actually work for) are not the same as Northwest or "Cobra Airlines". The girls at that trash bar you hang out at in DTW may believe you but nobody here does.

I'm happy that you got from a Cessna or Piper into a turboprop or jet.....everybody did, so what is your point?

very funny my friend very funny
out of the 350 or so Americans there, I was told 75 percent are Regional guys.
ALPA did not send you there. The economy did and then some if you are one of the 25 percent

But reality is that from the SJS some went to the Big SJS
(shiny jet syndrome) so i make my self clear

Also

Thanks but no thanks we want our own International route structure to connect our Domestic

Try Air India or Ariana airlines out of Islamabad

great destinations
