July Interviews Ef Lhr

People who had an interview scheduled last July have been put on hold for about 12 months...

Has anyone in this situation heard from BA yet? Has anyone been offered an interview for WW temp contract instead?

I Don't know. If you wish to go for interview for LHR WW I would give BA a call and ask them as I belive it is possible.

Hi there, is there anybody who is going up for the WW interviews the night before and staying in a hotel by the airport? Could anyone offer me any advice regarding the way how I get to cranebank from them? Is there a bus? I know there is one from Hatton Cross, are there regular busses from all the hotels to hatton cross? Thanks! x

Transport

Your best bet is to check with the hotel you made your booking with. Some of the hotels have free shuttle to the airport terminals and may be to Hatton Cross but not to Cranebank for sure.

Try to stay at the Jury's Inn. It is half way between Hatton Cross and Cranebank - you can walk to either.

If you are in the Eurofleet hold pool then you can switch to the worldwide courses straight away without an interview, well you could before the closing date anyway. Obviously BA state a couple of times that it is only 11 month contract and that if a EF course comes up you can't switch back etc etc.

I also wanted to point out an inaccuracy posted earlier that the WW and EF contracs are different - Havign signed both of them in the past I can say that they are not different but the other aggreements in place - predominantly affecting your rostering patterns and allowances days off etc. are different. I was in LHR EF pool then was offered Temp WW without askign for it.
Also somone asked for a typical roster at LGW - if they are still after it PM me and I'll send you mine as I am sure the poor moderator would have a fit if I posted 2 pages of A4 into this forum.
Good luck to all of you applicants out there (don't like to say Wannabe's as it makes me sound a bit superior).
Opps & Choice news for LGW is due this month but considering todays announcement on Longhaul aircraft purchases I'm sure all is to play for and change is on the horizon - A380 good god I feel a bit giddy at the propsect.
See all the new LGW crew soon.
I knwo a manager has said she wouldn't support moving LHR temps to LGW in the uture but she is one of many so don't take that as gospel.
I try to post more fact (or what we as crew are given as fact) on here than opinion but at the end of the day it is PPRuNe the RUNE bit standing fro Rumour Newtwork so take everything with a pinch of salt.
I reiterate though if you really want to work for BA hold out for EF if you want to but don't decline LGW if it's lookign like all you'll geet - it's still paid better than most (not LHR BA i know but still) and you too could be sat on a beach in BGI drinking Strawberry Daquiri's for 2 a pop - Heaven. Me right now I'm in TPA on my balcony having spent my 48 hours off tryign to shake a miserable cold i feel a bit giddy after all the beechams! Usually it'd be Busch Gardens though!
Happy flying!

Angel To: LHREF - Hold Pool

Hi there....

I just spoke to BA Recruitment and they assured me that even though our application is valid for 1 year we will get a course before expiry date.

When I asked him for an approximate date he said before MAY 08 and not to worry........

GREAT NEWS !!!

Well, that's good news, Dawn.

April and May for EF courses makes sense. They need the space at Cranebank to get all 280 WW Temps trained up and online. It will take until April to do that.

Sounds about right, although 2600 might be stretching it. It would be a one off if you got it. That would be a month of NRT, SIN/SYD and 8 day B2B (which will be going with the DTW/IAH). Budget for around 1500 and anything over that would be a nice suprise.

I already PM'd an answer to this but my average NET while temping at LHR WW was 1750. (made from 890 gross basic and 1300 gross allowances). Like VS says though NRT etc trips would push this up but I wouldn' expect to do one of those a month!

happy flying!

Question, About Baa Security Pass?

Hi Guys,

Can anyone help me with this burning question I have. I just need to see several people's opinion. When I was doing training with a previous airline, my references were almost processed for an airside pass, but I was never told to collect it or that it was ready.

So I did not have to go down and get my photo taken or anything. I didn't complete my training.I know some airlines dont give you a form to ask have you previously applied for a BAA security pass or had one. I think Ba gives this form. What worries me Is I did not want to put down my previous airline as I didnt have the best of experiences and this might put my chances down. I was not even there long.
So my question is do I have to put this whole thing down that on my references,can they actually find out?they may ask me why I did not put this down on my application form. As I never had a pass, don't think it was ready, so can I just tick the (No I have no had not applied for a pass?)
