Flydubai has long pushed the boundaries of sensible operating policy, says one of its pilots

A pilot purporting to work for the airline told that it encourages not reporting illness or fatigue, as was allegedly also the case with the airline's crashed flight’s Alejandro Alava.

After the crash of low-cost carrier Flydubai’s flight FZ981 in Rostov-on-Don last week, a former pilot blew the whistle in an interview with RT on how the company allegedly pushes its employees to work hectic and long rosters, ignoring complaints that this puts lives in danger. That report has now been corroborated by a person who claims to be a current Flydubai pilot.

This won't be the first time -- exactly this obviously unaceptable management attitude has been responsible for other crashes with "low cost" airlines elsewhere.
