Tinstaafl, If you're at the interview, and you're sure it's the right airline, and you'll get to fly the best aircraft, with an offer of 100k a year, with a captaincy after two years, yep, you may gently drop a hint that I was your mentor. Yes mate, you've just got yourself the job!!

ickle ;)

That, Ickle, is bloody good! It is so much a perfect description of my last flatmate that it's almost uncanny ...
