I'd bust on your mom, but since the Atlanta Hawks rode her so hard last night, and your sister had to finish for her, I'll leave her alone...for now. You're still a troll, and wanna be. Enjoy flight sim doosh!You still can't add anything to a debate Scoot. Your Mom disowned you years ago because she knew you would turn out to be a real jack hole. She was right!

Due to the code share with Jet Blue and AA, many of those arriving pre-cleared pax are bringing revenue to your airline....how exactly does the pre-clear damage your future....if and when the US carriers begin service to Abu Dhabi, they will benefit from the pre-clearance facility as well...http://www.usatoday.com/story/todayinthesky/2014/01/23/jetblue-agrees-to-codeshare-pact-with-abu-dhabis-etihad/4795581/
Article says it all... this is a job and career killer. Hopefully Jetblue votes in Alpa. Alpa is very against this for obvious reasons and this will be a big fight for the (hopefully) fledgling Jetblue Alpa MEC. Good luck.
In the meantime Jetblue pilots, you all need to know just how damaging this pre-clearance facility is to YOUR future
Fv,The UAE gives free reign (back door) to terrorists?
This facility and the one that will come to Dubai will benefit travelers to the US. These travelers will dump their dollars into the US economy.
US Customs should not (and thankfully did not) base their decisions to benefit a pilot group like DAL/UAL over JB.
There IS a bigger picture here. It ain't all about you hookah.
As to US jobs. Roll on Boeing.
Thanks for your response. Interesting stuff.To respond to your last paragraph.
I have not heard of anyone being issues a warning letter for have 'certified sick' leave. Essentially certified means the Doc has told you to call sick, not you. I can't obviously say yey or nay on that - but it sounds highly suspect.
Whenever I have been sick for a period that long it has always been certified by a Dr and have never heard anything from the co. on the subject.
In relation to FAs, nothing like QR. Non Cabin Crew cannot be in their apartments after 1am. The airline is 24 hour so they stay in high rises that are always moving people to flights throughout the day..this system is seen as a mitigation on late night partying (does not work) which keeps the others awake as they are trying to sleep AND is quite possibly seen as 'virtuous' to save face....people just shag earlier.
Pilot shortage? Like you guys we have been hearing it for years...still not parking airplanes, but the Co is cagey with what they tell us...it could be a crisis but they won't divulge.
They tell us attrition is running at 2-3% per annum. We have a pilot group of 3500, so there is always a leaving party somewhere. Every time I hear it, music to my ears as it pressurized them to up the ante. Inflation in DXB quite high a we have only had our 3-3.5% increment in the last two years with no bonus which is ticking everybody off. Nice to see DAL sharing the spoils...congrats.
A U.S. border checkpoint located a day?s flight from New York in the Arabian desert promises to become an oasis for weary travelers heading for the States.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection opened an Abu Dhabi base on Jan. 24, the first in the Middle East and outside the Americas besides Ireland. Another post is planned in Dubai within a year to fast-track travelers through the routinely arduous immigration process, as the U.S. seeks to eliminate terror threats before would-be perpetrators even board a plane.
The U.S. drive to tighten immigration security with overseas posts stands to deliver an advantage to Emirates and other fast-growing Persian Gulf carriers because the overseas checks can shave hours from crossing the border at major U.S. gateways, typically the most vexing finale to a long-distance flight. Passengers in Abu Dhabi can instead make use of the dead time between flights to complete the process, lifting the allure of the luxurious Gulf airports as global travel hubs.
?The flight is long and you get exhausted, and then you wait there for hours,? said Sahar Riaz, 17, a student who travels from Dubai to the U.S. as many as three times a year to visit her sister in New York. ?It?s much more convenient to finish everything from here because you?re not as tired as you would be when you arrive in the U.S.?
International travelers can stand in line for 4 1/2 hours at John F. Kennedy International Airport, the U.S. Travel Association said Sept. 18.
