The issue for Balpa here (with such large potential numbers involved) is that pressing on with trying to maintain pure LIFO from the bottom of the MSL will not deliver the required savings for BA (simply put you’re getting rid of the cheapest pilots at the lower rungs of PP34). That poses something of a quandary as inevitably that will in turn mean a greater number of total redundancies in order to make up the difference. So do you hold firm on the principle of LIFO and accept there will be a greater number of casualties or do you try to limit the number of those affected by CR by trying to acquiesce to an extent with the BA plan but holding them to LIFO where possible? Hopefully we can get away without any CR but I think that’s an absolute pipe dream right now considering where we are and where we’re about to go with the 14 day quarantine on incoming pax.
