I flew Delta across the Atlantic and that 767 didn't have any AVOD. This was a couple years ago. Delta's airplane of choice across the Atlantic is the 767 and many of those are old with no comparison to EK aircraft when it comes to onboard entertainment and amenities.
Still pissed you got turned down at Delta?

I have no application at Delta nor have I ever interviewed so I'm not sure where you are getting that from. Fact remains the inflight service on US legacy carriers is abysmal compared to EK, QR, and EY.

Haha ..Varmint did as wel
Dream on. I would be embarrassed to be associated with the same company that you are.

If you have to boost your ego by trying to put other people down, you have a serious self esteem problem. Maybe you got your ass kicked one too many times and that is why you have to resort to the internet to make yourself feel better.

I have plenty if friends at DAL, all of whom would be embarrassed by Sniper.

The EK guys on here, conduct themselves relatively well and always have. Every time Sniper and a couple of others go into rude and irrational insult mode - it actually ends up damaging the perception people have of his pilot group.

Plenty of experts who have never been to DXB telling us how bad we have it.

You have no idea.

now tell us the truth did you send your application? interviews are starting in november. But from what I am hearing no EK pilot has a chance

or you got turned down back in 08 and took your RJ experience to the ME

We are determine to stop the three subsidized airlines from the ME and you can keep dreaming about an EK base back in the US
and yes F---- Emirates, Etihad and Qatar from a proud Cobra Airlines pilot since 1998

At first I thought you were just a troll. Now you're making challenges and implicit empty threats on a message board. You're more than just a troll. You're a sociopath. If you really do fly for a living, please turn in your medical and get help.

Mainline people don't go to Wheat'n'Rye. It's an RJ-trash hangout.

Nahh, I'm not a violent person like you because I am actually educated.

Come to Detroit? Why, it's a ******************** hole and the crime rate is much higher there than here in Dubai.

Cool
In my previous job, based in Brussels, the company sent me all over the world, and quite frequently across the pond.

The instructions I left with our travel agencies were really quite simple: No US carriers and no London Heathrow, apart from that don't really care.

I didn't, and still don't, care for the miles. When you spend upwards of 150 days on the road, about the last thing I wanted to see on my days off was another bloody airport/aircraft/hotel combo. Many of the airlines I flew did not have first class, so one couldn't even blow the miles upgrading from J to F.

On almost all my travels East I've used Emirates, and the product they deliver is miles ahead of most European based carriers. The distance US carriers is behind EK should be measured in furlongs, lots and lots of them.

And I haven't even mentioned the cabin crew on EK vs, say, DL on a long-haul flight. Suffice to say that, on EK you won't have to wonder where the lead hostie has parked her zimmer frame.

LOS-oil, ACC-gold, Tokyo-beats me, one of those big cities everyone goes to, and so does EK and still manages to load up an A380, but so do Air France and Thai Airways.
Island folk that have some cash. The Japanese people like to travel.
