Bearing in mind two of those LoCo’s have a package worth in excess of £120k a year before bonuses with a fixed roster pattern and home each night - ideal for a having a life outside of work.
Unless you have a burning desire to fly long haul then there is absolutely no reason to join BA at all. Unless you like never ending conversations about pensions and JSS. Oh and of course the company has really “strong” union recognition hahaha!! Trust me if your close to LoCo command stick with it, most normal people go to work to earn money and BA is simply not the place to do that anymore all the rest is smoke and mirrors designed to convince us how lucky we are to work at T5s favourite airline.
