If you guys are so short of crews, any rumours of recruitment soon?
Sounds like the perfect job to me, City is a great little airport, london is fun. Touring rosters, charters, good staff travel and the Embraer to fly! Perhaps not perfect for families or older people but I cant see why a young single captain would ever leave.
Grass is always greener I suppose but I know lots of people who would kill for a CF job.

Wikipedia, which is hardly an authority is saying about loads of new BA CF routes from LHR to the likes of Exeter and Leeds!

It can't be true??

A. It's indeed not a reliable source.
B. It has been deleted from the page.
C. The Unions would not have allowed it, not in a million years. (either LHR or even LGW)
D. No aircraft and crew to do it anyway.

If it had been from LGW I would have given them a 0.01% credibility rating. But even that would have had major implications. Don't even mention LHR. You hardly get any acknowledgement going through LHR as pos crew anyway. As we're not 'real' BA. Yet we do the more challenging flying...

DB - do the 'real' BA crew flying the A318 out of your back yard play nicely?

I was talking to a 'real' BA Captain (short haul) from LHR a month or so ago about BACF and he was very complimentary and a little bit jealous of your new toys! Must just be some stuck up lot.

The JFK crews dont even use the official staff search at LCY so does that answer your question?

LCY-CPH launch delayed

BACF have delayed the launch of their new CPH service to 21st September.

The route was due to start on 12th Sept.

Anybody know the reason for the delay??

News to me. I figure that it will be due to low crew levels. Lot's of (line) training going on right now, including new skippers. So they may need those cause the PMI/IBZ are still operating as well.
