I think you'll find that quite a few of the posters on this thread or at least the last few, work for BMed. They are therefore already ponitificating. The reason they have mixed views is the very fact that the management are keeping quiet on this one until the official announcement. Hence all the speculation

BMED (a BA franchise operating A320/A321) is to merge with Virgin Nigeria and cease it's BA franchise. It will become a Virgin Franchise, to be rebranded "Virgin East and a bit of Africa", to be abbreviated "Virgin EAABOA".
EAABOA - meaning to come in Peace in Etheopian.

Quoting Sir Richard Branson, "I've always wanted a bit of Africa and Central Asia, next stop the moon".

The BMED CEO Dave Richardson was seen in the Managers car park, skipping and screaming "I'm over the moon, too!".

"It was a delight to see "Dave" in such an ecstatic state, day's before it was a bottle of Whisky and a Revolver! ", said an employee.

A Senior Pilot was not in such a good mood, however, he was upset that the Tashkent had been cancelled and the "Entertainment" ( )wasn't as good in Africa.

City Traders are also pleased but are bemused at the longevity of the wait, the announce was suppose to be in September 1995.

funny?

I dont know if Orvil finds funny his post or not but if he does, his SOH is pathetic. I honestly dont find funny make jokes about a serious situation concerning to so many of your colleagues. Orvil should think seriously of his actions, more proper from a silly kid than from any serious adult.

Of course it's a joke!
God sake, Dmed of course it's a joke! I can tell by your level of Engleesh that your a foreign crew member without any hint of "British" sense of humour. Hence, why it's so bad at Bmed. Do you stay in your room down route and don't mix with the Brits but only with your own kind? Let me guess? Italian or Spanish ?

It must've been funny, though I must have missed it.

Well seeing as you must be multilingual, how is your spanish or italian?

Oh and if you missed it, in the above quote there is more than just a spelling mistake but hey your linguistic abilities are impressive.

Orvil, I hate to break it to you, but with that attitude people aren't sticking to there own kind. There just not interested in spending time with YOU!

On the straight and level,

To be fair I don't really care whether BMED goes bust or merges or anything of the sort. Good luck to them whatever they decide to do.

I do however take offence to orvils attitude. That is all.

Orvil,

Folks, this thread should be about BMed - instead, it's becoming a thread about bickering and point-scoring off of each other.

Back on topic now, please...

LOL..
Oh God wait till you do Freetown it's .
But the Manager is lovely and we have a crew room ,
..But the drink will numb the pain !!..And KRT , Thats another topic and you will see and no drinking allowed so a four day trip will be boring . Just take your own food for KRT and Towels , The Towels are clean but there more like a face towel . And TV is Bad in Freetown eg , 1 channel and in KRT the TV is like BEY/AMM .

Just out of curiosity, can you bid for some specific destinations or does the rostering department decide what you get?

Getting a new A321 in 2008 is not news, BMED were supposed to be getting one in 2007/08/09/10. Not sure now but hardly ground breaking!

From what I have heard I wouldn't be too sure about the new route coming quite yet.....
