Flydubai's response to the leaked air safety reports | Business | The Guardian:

"Flydubai rigorously adheres to all regulations set out by the regulator, the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and operates to the highest standards.
As part of our transparent reporting environment we investigate each of these air safety reports (ASRs) to conclusion to understand if they have any operational irregularities and any safety implications.
Policy towards fatigue: Flydubai’s policy towards fatigue is designed openly and proactively to report fatigue prior to operating the planned roster. The framework and mechanisms in place provide a blame free structure for crew to self­ report when they do not feel fit to fly."

Airline pilots complain of dangerous fatigue in leaked documents | Business | The Guardian

Airline pilots complain of dangerous fatigue in leaked documents | Business | The Guardian:

"Airline pilots describe being pushed to the limit and warn about the impact on flight safety in a cache of leaked documents that give a unique and occasionally hair-raising insight into the aviation industry.

Crews complain about fatigue and potentially dangerous schedules at a leading budget airline, which is already under pressure following a crash on 19 March that killed 62 passengers and crew.

A bomb scare at 30,000ft, multiple bird strikes, being shone at by lasers, drunken passengers, medical emergencies – and a pilot who forgot to disengage the handbrake during take-off – are also among more than 400 air safety reports written by pilots at Flydubai during March and April of this year."
