Good Luck AMS-LHR

AMS-LHR,

Good luck for your imminent training course. Having read your posts I am sure your zest and enthusiasm will get you through. It is a demanding five weeks during which time you will learn so much. It's a whole new world, but a good one to be part off.

I recently completed the course and am now on line and I love it!!

Good Luck to everyone else waiting, hope it won't be too long.

AMS

I wish you all the best for monday. you have been a real character on this thread and your enthusiasm has been so wonderful to see! I don't know about anyone else on here but I think it would be great to see a separate AMS thread to follow his progress. personally I am going to miss the AMS-LHR questions whenever I log on. So what about an AMS thread mods, would that be ok?

Wink Training Accomodation

Dear Everyone, I have my training date for Monday 8th October the welcome letter says to join at Cranebank Hangar 6 at 8am. Does anyone know if the training is for 5 or 6 weeks and is it just at Cranebank?

I am also looking for the best place to stay and cheapest options. Does anyone have any ideas this would be really appreciated. Am thinking of staying at my sis place in Barnes but anywhere closer would be great and also with other new cabin crews would be awesome.

Thanks much Jo x

Jwilli11, Hanger 6 is at LGW, so double check where you will have to be for your training.

Blueskybird,

Good luck with your interview. One of the questions I was asked, regarding business issues, was what did I think the upcoming challenges BA face in the future. My reply was about the move to terminal five in March 2008 and the preparation for this. I also mentioned the deregulation of competition and what open skies would mean for the industry. Hope this might help a bit.

Another BIG tip- when you do the group exercise, take a mental note of the others names, you may be asked at a later stage what they were!!

Be aware of the possible break up of the BAA with LGW a potential sales target and what effect that will have on UK aviation. Also Look into the 757 operation to the US from mainland EU. Make sure you know all about 'Oneworld' and its members and objectives. You can always introduce this and impress.

Advice Please

I am due to start my course at LGW as CC on 8th Oct. As yet I have had not received any cd rom or letter stating where we should meet on the 8th. Who can I contact regarding this and the BIG issue here is I am relocating countries and accepted the 8th October but feel I may not have wrapped up everything here.

Does anyone know if after accepting you can phone and opt for the next course without prjejudicing your chances.

Many thanks

Wink Tips for batriple7

Hi batriple7, i am starting on monday 8th Oct also i would advise calling this number 0870 60 80 747 and ask for the CD ROM and criminial record check and offer letter as i think you will also need this for day one. You could also drop an email to [email protected]

Hope this helps see you in 7 weeks. Jo
