EF

WelcomeAboard, EF is only for LHR. At LGW the fleet is called SF. Yes they have been calling people who are in the EF holding pool. I guess there will be more date or dates in the coming weeks. I also had my interview on the 17th of May but in the afternoon. Were you also in the afternoon or morning? I think its just a matter of days now before the rest of us get that call we've been waiting for 6 months. Good luck to all.

Hello,

Thanks for clearing that up, i new that LGW was mixed fleet but did not know that EF was a heathrow only term. I was in the morning, i remember it well, i had a fever and a terrible blocked nose, i was on more day nurse and paracetamol than it is probably safe to take!! But the drugs obviously helped since i passed. I assume they may be a chance that we will be on the same training course (if and when of course). Keep me posted if you get a call and i'll do the same.

Phil

17 May

Hi Phil,

Thanks. As I was in the afternoon, I probably did not even see you although when I 'checked in' there were some people from the morning group leaving. Can't remember the faces though.
Anyway, I am sure we will be on the same course and it will be great as we already have some sort of contact now.
The last thing you want on yr interview day is a bad cold. But you still made it through. I tripped and fell over on the day of my interview in my actual job as I was too occupied looking at the building in front of me! A little bruised but still got through the interview.

what a stress!

Hello

I did the interview on the 17th with Londonphilou and getting very nervous! I am currently living in Spain and working over here and I have changed my details on ba.com/careers and put my spanish number as well as the english. I am taking my 2 handsets everywhere just in case I miss BAs call !! This is so stressful. When are we gonna get the expected call?

Good luck to all the swimmers!

Hi Dan!

Hi Dan,

Glad to hear from you. Its been a long time.
I think we should hear in the coming days or next week. I am pretty sure.
It has been quite stressful especially with rumours that we would not get a course or we are not entitled to be offered the job we applied for, you name it we have heard it! Happy for all of us who have resisted to all this pressure and stayed firm with our long wait.

when you say stayed firm with our choice of waiting....what choice did we have? I still think that BA could have been a bit better at keeping us informed, if it was not for forums like this we might have all gone mad and be working for Ryanair by now (no offence intended by the way, just hate the airline personnally)

Anyway Dan, even in Spain they will call don't worry.

Choice..

Did we not get an email in July informing us that there would not be anymore EF course in the coming months and that if we did not want to wait, we could take LGW?? And with all the negative rumours circulating, I know some people were under pressure and instead of waiting for their EF course, they have taken LGW or the LHR WW Temp course. I agree BA could have kept us informed more regularly but they did say in their email that they would only be in touch with us if there is any new information. I was not too bothered with that and I only rang them once since that email. I just had faith that it would happen some time before next May. Was happy to wait till then.
Dan, don't worry too much. They will ring you in Spain and if in case they cant get through to you, they will leave you a message and also send you an email so that you can ring them back. I think they allow you some days to get back before filling your place with someone else.

choice

yes indeed we did get an email, though it was never a choice for me. Shame if people took the other options out of fear of never getting in. Like you i stuck to LHR EF i thought we shall see, if it happens it happens. Though i must admit that i was starting to think that it wasn't going anywhere. Either way i'm pleased to see some movement in the hold pool even if it just shows that the list does exist!!

swimming in Spain

Hello spoon82

Where in Spain are you? I am living in Madrid. We could talk and share our waiting hell if you want. Leave me a private message if you want.

Keep swimming!
