If they only need around 8 747 people, why did they bother opening up the floodgates to NTR applicants?

Worse than a 1:125 chance to get a job earning 4k a month (if that) out of London, with over a decade to command. Boy this industry is rubber-ducked!!!!!

Well who's out there with a 74 rating? Apart from BA (who would come to V/S from there?) I would imagine there aren't many 74 drivers actually out there that V/S are looking for.

I guess by spreading the net wider they get all the types of applicants they are looking for, which includes the longhual drivers from the dessert looking to come home.

What do you think of the video from the PPU. Looks like they are getting their act together

I've still not heard anything. A friend of mine (BA 74 FO) did get the nod last week from VS.

Quite surprised to see BA guys heading over to V/S. just shows how sort after the company is.

I would imagine that rules out the rest of the 1000+ people that applied.
