Flower Duet, it is no problem for you to take a suitcase to training with you. A lot of crew bring luggage when doing recurrent training, so it's not out of the ordinary.

I used to treat myself to a room at the Meridien in the north terminal (I believe it's called something else now, arora perhaps?) and i used to pay around 70. Not bad for a night. If you are after longer term accommodation during training, you can get a BnB for around 30. You will need to search the accommodation threads here and cabincrew.com

cheers

Baboi,

I had not read your reply to me on page 13. I have now.

You make alot of assumptions, some might happen some not. As you I to hope for various things too happen but no matter how hard we want it or how hard we believe or how hard we fight for that belief it is not up to you and me.

We will have to agree to disagree on a few things but thats life.

Also I never stated that LHR EF works on seniority. It does work on a rotation very much like the leave groups. It is a little more complex than that but that is what it boils down to. You do not have to believe me get in contact with RB or AB and they will merely confirm what I had said.

Simply,

I am speechless. LGW SF not in the NSP? You have a contact??? I will refrain from posting what I actually think but by your misguided attempt to educate those who clearly have the facts which you clearly do not or have escaped you one can only assume that you are not an employee of BA. If you are, well I'll leave it at that.

Well done! Bet you can't wait to start . When was your interview date? I had mine on the 5th October but no course date as of yet . Hope it all goes well for you and perhaps our paths will cross at some point!

Hello to everybody I've heard that BA Short Haul is now recruting people for the next Spring-Summer season?
have someone heard this as well?

What do you guys reccomand to a wannabe who's going to apply for his first airline job? someone told me is better to target small airlines 'coz the biggest generally prefer people who have alredy flight experience...

Suggestion Welcome and forgive me for any mistake, I'm a bit in a rush!

I myself have no previous experience but was successful with BA so I dont really think it makes a massive difference is my opinion. I know people who have had previous experience but still didnt make it so it really is all about you, your personality, willingness to learn and work as part of a team. Good luck to you !!!

2010 and beyond

It is not much help or encouragement to you lovely people but BA will need to recruit an additional 5000 + CC for the introduction of the A380 aircraft. Plans are being drawn up with a view to commencing employment this time next year as it is a requirement to have at least half of this number operational by 2009. it is hoped that the surplus of CC can be offset by offering incentive style career breaks / more part time etc. The good news is even that is not that far away. Other plans will require a dedicated CC training establishment breaking away from Flight deck totally. The centre could of course be anywhere in the UK with the provision of an EU development grant.

WW Temps - Anna Spanner

I know me too its so frustrating that some have had courses and others haven't! Heres to hoping we hear something soon, have you spoken to recruitment since your interview? I wonder how many of us there are awaiting dates? Keep in touch fingers crossed we might get the same date.

LHR EF Holding Pool Member

Hi Guys,
Congratulations to Dawn on getting your course date! I'm an external candidate waiting in the LHR EF Holding Pool (my interview took place in May 07). I have read with great interest over the last few months Dawn's, and other people's posts regarding recruitment at BA - and they're definately pretty hard to get in to aren't they!

Having not worked in the Aviation Industry before, I am amazed at how determined you people are. I'm looking forward to, hopefully, getting my chance to work with such a great airline. I'll continue to check for updates here, and post any update of my situation.

Kind regards, and good luck to you all.
