EF...3rd March 2008

Well done Dan!! I am very relieved you got it in the end. Could not understand why they left you out in the first place!! All this thing about high scores etc..I think its non-sense especially at this stage of waiting in the holding pool. Anyway, glad to know I will see someone I already know there and a few of you I got to know on here. Im sure the rest of you will hear very very soon.

apparently, they called me last week. I saw an english number missed call in my phone last week but when i tried to call it said the number did not exist. They did not leave any message in my voicemail either so i was not able to return the call... but they did call again

See you the 3rd of march!

Medical questionnaire..

Does anyone know if one has to send the medical questionnaire as soon as possible or wait for a bit before sending off? I got all the attachments already since last Friday. Start date is 3 March 2008. Thanks.

Hi Londonphillou,

Glad to hear that we will be flying together at sone point. And congrats to the rest that got the call.

I sent off medical about 3 weeks after getting all the info. I assume that there is no great hurry but better to get the admin sorted anyway. Uniform fitting is also booked for 8th january, it is best to get that sorted straight away since they are heavily booked up.

Hope everybody has a lovely christmas...

Anna

Hey Anna - I am sooooo excited too! I have friends that I could stay with in Balham (which is not far from Clapham) But not sure if the commute may be a little far each day....can anybody advise as I am not overly familiar with that area.

Thanks xxx

pls help

Hello,

I am rather confused when it comes to education requirements for the various airlines. On the BA website it says secondary education/sixth form. When I look up 6th form it seems as its equivalent to A-levels, is this true?? An secondary education seems to be like GCSE... its confusing.. So the way I see it Virgin atlantic require less schooling tha BA and many others...

Could someone please clarify what the requirements are?
Is Secondary education the same as A-levels and higschool?

Thanks.

Hi Missydk
The only educational requirements I see that is needed for BA for cabin crew is GCSE Maths and English. These are the exams you take when you are around 16 years old. You then do A levels after this. I guess when they say they want secondary level of education it means GCSE's.
Hope this helps...
