Accommodation at LGW URGENT

Hello All.

Does anyone know the name of the hotel closest to the training centre at Gatwick . On the map given it says hotel , would like to book in there as my accomodation has fallen through.

It looks really close to the training area ideal for me as I wont have a car

new courses for EFLHR

Hello guys

Congrats to the ones who have just finished their courses and good luck to the ones who are starting theirs.
Im one of the ones in the holding pool and i was trying to figure out roughly when will be offered a course. As i see from here the last course offered for temp WW is on the 17th December so that course will end towards the end of january. Does that mean we will be offered courses on February? What do you think? Any rough ideas?

Thanks and happy flying!

apparently they call you and apparently it happens 2 days later to tell you have gone through

or they dont tell you anything and you have to wait, like me

haha how lame i went out in my garden to smoke one and look at the planes (yes I live under the path of 75% if not 100% of the outbound LHR traffic)

Hi teacoffee

My suggestion is your ring up BA Recruitment and ask them if you could change to LHR WW temp. You have nothing to lose by asking them. In the worst case scenario you would still be in the hold pool for LHREF.

Give it a go and Good luck!!

Holding Pool to WW Temp

Hi ya, I called them about 3 days ago to do the same but apparently we're too late now. We should have called by the closing date for applications which was weeks ago. There are people who did it but they rung at the beginning of the campaign unfortunately. So I guess it's the waiting game again... On the flip side, if we had gone for the temp WW, that would have been it, we wouldn't be allowed to go back to the holding pool for EF at the end of it. I hope the saying "good things come to those who wait" is true!!!!

DMED, I am in the same position as you, in the hold pool for LHR EF. Its really frustrating isn't it? but no-one on here can answer your question, even those that like to think they have the answers! ba will contact us if and when they need us and until then it's a waiting game. we can second guess all we like but the truth is, no one knows (maybe not even ba at this point!) wish it weren't so but it is.

Happy, a lot people waiting in the holding pool for Euro Fleet have been told that they should get course dates for April. In the meantime, they have around 280 WW temps to get through training by then. Most of the temps are to be transfered internally (from what I've read on here) and the order in which they are transfered will depend on operational issues. My guess is that external temps will be slotted in where there are vacancies, which could be courses from January through to April. What actually happens is another thing, though.
