Short Haul (whilst Iíve already said itís not as bad as many make out on here) there are better options out there nowadays.
It is marginally better because it includes Flying Pay in the 15% calculation. The reduction in joining pension was suggested but soundly rejected by the current workforce, something which would definitely not happen in BA!
