I would love to try long haul, and hope if i get in to BA I can try it. From what I gather itís possible to go to LH and if itís not for you go back to SH? Obviously not straight away.

Im at a crossroad just weighing up options.

Go through the application process if youíre interested, brother. You ainít got a decision to make until you get offered a job.

You may get offered long haul or short haul, depending on what theyíre short of on the day. Apparently, at the moment, you get offered a job once and once only. Your choice.

if you accept a seat on one of our fleets you will be there for for 5 years unless the company wants to move you. That includes long haul back to short haul.

EK for 10 years? You outta your fíing mind?

Best of luck, dude!
