The Ef Wait ..

Hey, well done spoon82 for getting the call!

I'm still here swimming, but there really can't be that many of us now ...

Surely we will get called soon ... I tell you what I will be well annoyed if they don't call me before the offer expires ... now that will be very unfair!!

Cheers

Azzuri.

900hrs

I see. In my case anyway it wouldn't be a problem - the more travel the better, seeing as if I do get through to being offered a place, I will only have 11 months to see all the places I can...

I'm just worried though.. applications for the 11-month position cease December 31st. I've just read on here that there is an LHR WW course planned to start on March 10th (which I'm guessing is for the position they're recruiting now). My problem is exactly about the time I can start... I can only start from around June/July, and now I'm worrying that this might mean I can't accept the offer. I just hope they have courses for that time... And I hope that they are able to say when a course is going to take place with so many months in advance (I guess 4 or 5...). Anyway I'll worry about that later... Now I'm just waiting to know whether I was invited for interview or not!

Has anyone else applied for the same position?

Spoon82, you got me wrong matey. I know we have all been waiting for so long and we all deserve to get our courses sooner or later. What I meant by luck was as you had yr interview on the 22nd that is after us (17 and 18th of May) , you have been given a course date which is before ours.You were yourself wondering how. I would still be happy if people who had their interviews after me and you, eventually get a course say on the 18th of Feb and it would be their luck if that happens and just like all of us, we well deserve it whatever the date or order courses are given out.
There is someone on here who had his interview on the 23rd of May 2007 and he got his course for August 2007. What would you call that? It was simply his luck.

Hello everyone! Hope someone can help. My friend has just been accepted by BA and is thrilled - he's starting in February. Do BA still do medicals? Or is it like Virgin where you complete a medical questionnaire and return it to them? He has heard that you have to organise a medical with your own doctor but I'm pretty sure he is mistaken on that one. In fact, unless there is anything that needs clarifying, your own doctor isn't consulted. Am I right? Also, as Gatwick is both LH and SH, do you get a good mix of both, or is it just the luck of the draw? Thanks.

As far as I know, medicals are now questionaires. Any clarification is done with your GP.

At LGW, crew bid for trips based on seniority, so the mixture you get is really what you bid for. Because of the volume of crew needed for the 777, it is reasonable to expect to do a fair bit of long haul as main crew.

Kikko, your turn will come very soon. Don't think there are that many left now in that pool. Lets hope you get the 25th or another new date.
