Steady on bex... all EMBA as it were have had the choice from day 1 to go to LH in the RHS, continue in the LHS or take up until recently out of seniority protected commands. In fact all the Commands this & last year were protected... only 2016 saw it drop to & past their seniority. Not bad considering they joined BA in 2012 having commands & RHS LH since day one, whilst others senior to them had to sit out their 5 year engagement freeze. But I like others didnít complain as it was the deal that was signed. If theyíre junior & in the bubble thatís their choice! Could have gone to LH & be nearly 50% for example on the jumbo.... & if Iím not mistaken it was the bmi list that chose to turn down the last zipper solution not the BA list.... Not a bmi bash but letís state the facts, most feel theyíve done very well. Itís the same for BA guys, was on the bus the other day & a junior BA SH skipper was complaining heíd gone down 3 or 4% & it wasnít fair.... weíll could have gone to LH.... his choice, you only have to be junior once!

Anyway back to the thread... good luck to those applying.
