CC live all over the world many as far as Aussie. The 90 minute rule is to weed out those that they may not wish to employ. The rule can be got around anyway by stating that you intent to move nearer the relevant airport.

It may have already been muted but there will be an increase in LGW CC to cover the 13 A319 that will move there from LHR towards the end of March. These will be required to be crewed by other CC other than the SF group, so must amount to at least 200+.

Im confused, do you mean that they'll hire 200 more cc into the SF to cover these aircraft or that they'll have a whole new cc fleet down there apart from SF???

Tax for people commuting outside of UK

Hi there, when I eventually begin working for BA as CC on WW from LHR I will still remain a living in France but commuting to LHR when required. Does anyone know or have any experience with the tax side of things as I am sure other are or have been in a similar situation. Technically speaking I will not be staying in th UK overnight except maybe occasionally. I am sure I will still need to pay tax in France but will I automatically be taxed by the PAYE scheme in the UK also?? Also when down route down how do those days fall in relation to tax???Thanks very much for any response!!!x

I believe you pay tax in UK as your base is UK. When your contract ends you will be able to claim all the taxyou paid back.

I didn't know where to put this one, but BA management have mentioned that they are particularly monitoring the recruitment drive for applicants from GB Airways.

So all you GB people spread the word as a manager hinted that there has been little interest from GB crew to date.

You never know....it may stand you in good stead if the management are talking about it......

Best of luck to all those who have applied, and even more so to those who are waiting for courses.

Just wanted to give you this heads up.

EF Holding...

Hi Guys,

Congratulations to Missdoo! And to anyone else who has recently been given a Training Date. You must be so happy!

I am an external LHR EF candidate waiting in hold pool - my interview was 17th May 07 so I think I might have to wait a bit yet - but hopefully not too long! I will be keeping my phone fully charged and loud just incase!

Well done to Missdoo, and good luck to everyone.
Kind regards,
G-GMGH

Aussie Pilot

Hey there Aussie Pilot,
Very sorry to hear about the outcome of your application - it is a shame as it seems like you really tried to research, prepare and get some tips. I suggest you try to find out the areas of weakness, and really work hard on that - and I'm sure you will make it next time.

Kind reagrds, and good luck to you.
