Default Whats happening at EK?

Does EK have a large surplus of 777? They have 11 in storage at the moment.

All I know (or at least heard) is they have lots of 77W. They are after all one of the biggest operators of the 77W, and they still have more on order. They got rid of their 772, and some of their 773 are going to CX soon.

I've read/heard several times that it is because of a pilot shortage due to either retirement or because of the working conditions for pilots within the airline. Don't know whether it is true or not though.
