Angel Hi Jarvis

NOPE nothing yet.
Jarvis just a few questions:
  1. If I understand correctly the dates you mention have already been allocated to BA redeployed staff?
  2. Are all these dates for LHR WW or any for LHR EU?
  3. And last but not least.... Are you one of the FORTUNATE?
if you still dont have a date hang in there...
Thanks
DAWN

Hi

I have to say that getting 900 in allowances is a bit too much....more 600 to 700 for a new entrant. I've been with LGW since Nov last year and 719 pounds this month is my max so far. I don't know how you bid Simon, but I higly doubt I would get 900 with only 3-4 day trips as a new entrant. How long have you been at LGW?

Answers
  1. Yes
  2. LHR WW
  3. Dates given but no names to dates as yet, but as I understand we will be on one of the courses and they will put names to courses by the 27th July and inform us WC 30th july.
Dawn....sorry to hear you not heard anything yet..hang in there

No More Lhr Ef Courses Till Next Year

I sent an E mail to BA asking about LHR EF course dates and this is the reply I got:


Thank you for your email.
Unfortunatley I have been informed that there are no Eurofleet positions coming up until the end of the financial year. Of courses if this changes, or once we hear of any future courses we will of courses be in touch.

I am just wondering if by "the end of the finalcial year " is intended to be April 08 or Dec 07. In any case if this is the case us in the hold pool are pretty much st.......fed.
What do you think?...Is this just a typical reply (and then maybe in 2 months times they will call us...) or it's just true?

Well for the first time last month I hit 1,000 in allowances at LGW. I have been here just coming up to a year so it is possible! THo this month will be nearer the 750-800 mark.
Tax wise...the overtime rates are taxed per normal basic rate.
Hourly flight pay is a bit more complicated....out of the 2.32 18% of this is taxed at the normal rate. For example 18% of 2.32 is 0.471pence. So it is this tiny tiny tiny amount which is applied.
The overnight allowance is completely tax free. We are much better with this than the LHR deal.

We have a computer system called crewlink that will produce a statement like a bank statement with your achieved and projected allowances. Tho you can figure out your allowances quite easiy as all the figures are provided.

With reagrd to LGW LH routes (IAH/DFW) Simon - Talling Smith said openly on a Q+A session that the company don't actually know themselves what they will do with regard these routes and replacing them...be it SH or LH!!!!
When we suggested that they are leaving it quite late it was intimated that we put forward our own suggestions as to what we think is best!

Hi
I very much doubt that It is going to be any LH, as LHR need as many LH A/C as they can possibly can get their hands on. Especially now with all the free slots from BMED they need to fill. Remember by slot allocation legislation at LHR, airlines need to use at least 80% of their slots, or they lose them.
(I'm very much into airline regulations right now...hehehe, don't ask why)
Pax Agent and Simon....then I think you def. need to show me how to bid properly.... some more money would definitely help....
Cheers guys

Re-deployed staff

Hi guys,
Those re-deployed staff who have been offered LHR WW, is it a permanent contract or a 6 month contract as previously suggested.

And as far the LHR SH applicants who got through lately, the latest I heard from a BMED guy who also got the job, that it might be in Jan or Feb there will be more LHR courses. But then again it can happen anytime I suppose.

Londonphilou, what the BMED guy said seems to be consistent with the reply I got from BA and we'll probably have to wait till next year.

It would be interesting to know what type of contrancti all re-deployed staff have been offered.

Lhr Sh

My prediction is we will be offered the LHR courses soon after the LHR WW has been done. They are already short of staff plus transfer from SH to WW taking place, so training for replacements will have to done sooner or later, esp before the T5 opens in March. Just drove past the T5 this morning and I cant wait to be there. Looks amazing. One of the reasons I did not take the Gatwick offer. I know its a long wait but I have already waited for 2 years for re-applying, another few months is worth the wait I suppose.

Hi Kikko

All re-deployed BA ground staff were offered either LHR WW temporary (11month) or LHR EF permanent.
I chose LHR EF permanent and I am also still waiting for a course date.
Hang in there. I'm sure it will be our turn when they're finished with LGW SF and LHR WW.
Hopefully soon....
