As we seem to permanently go one or more crew down on the 600, you could almost argue that the company have already removed a crew member. Are we soon to leave LHR with minimum crew? Best of luck chaps.

I think that LM and the rest of them think we all walk around with "MUG" written on our heads! Guys Vote "NO", Its time to start taking away these guys huge fat cat wage increases...which deserve to be in the front line staffs pockets!!!!!! Its all fair and well that they sit and decide that pax dont want little things like a decent amenity kit in J and decent breakfast or afternoon tea in Y......but they dont have to implement the changes....and have the backlash...yet get bigger wages for the thoughts! We need more money for pushing through their cut backs! VOTE NO!!!!

Has anyone else noticed that the closing date for this consultative ballot is the 29th? 2 days after the Industrial Action originally proposed by Brian Boyd - looks like he has shafted Union members again!

Was he only ever concerned about the headlines all of this would generate?

Concerns over Airshare

More bulls**t from Virgin managers:

Concerns over Airshare
Airshare, as you know, pays out when the company have made a profit but with Airshare comes the risk that should we not be in profit, you receive nothing.
By incorporating your airshare into your basic pay, you now have the protection against any losses in future years.
In addition to this, when we do really well, you WILL receive an airshare payment when the payout is over 5%. Please continue to ask questions of your union representatives and your Managers who will be on hand to help with concerns like this. Thank you.
Martin Phillips, Cabin Crew Manager

I wonder if management will only receive Airshare if the payout is over 5% ?

The ballot papers are out. Vote NO

take a crew member off the 600? how dare they?? we all know what the crew down situation has been like in the recent past and all the crap management used to troll out like "we know how hard it makes it for you to do your jobs when you are operating crew down and we are committed to ensuring all our flights go fully crewed blah blah blah" and NOW they're turning round and telling us we're going to have to go 1 crew down permanently! its disgusting! its not only us but the customers will suffer!!! something has to give - they cant expect us to be able to offer the same level of service as we do now. even now I think we're overstretched on a full flight (anyone tried doing premium welcome drinks and newspapers on your own to thirty-odd pax recently?!). this is becoming a joke.
