I'm sorely tempted to copy and paste this link and email it to a few bods on the 3rd floor.
I wonder should someone email it to our new recruiting guy? Maybe with the line "I'm recommending all my mates go to this"
What's the bet that all of a sudden the 200-300 guys/girls off in DXB on the date get an airport stby?

The most junior BA short haul command at LGW in 2 years from now.....hasn't even joined the Company yet.

Oh yes, people will leave alright. And why not.

Well A New Hope would be quite appropriate right now wouldn't it?

Maybe it will lead the Farce to awaken!

Make sure to take your APC card because the debrief will be held at rock bottom

MEMO from Fleet:

Due unforeseen circumstances, rosters will be published late this month as we will now undertake the task of manually inserting flights for all UK passport holders for the 7th of January.

Thank you for your understanding and support!

This might be a silly question (probably it is...) but are they only looking for FO's or also for DEC's?

WS they are looking for FO's for long haul.

The DEC thing seems to be a bit of an urban myth at the moment, if they do offer it in the near future it will be for short haul, prob LGW base.

Will be interesting to see what they say.

Thank you, I thought so. If they'd offer DEC, preferably long haul, EK would be dead within a month or so... Wishful thinking, I know, but I keep on dreaming

Relax......


Apparently the site and event are in exactly the same format as the previous ones they did in the UK (allegedly).

If you know names in BA recruitment you will also be able to see their posts on Linkedin publishing this too (allegedly).

As I said before, they are only looking for FO's at the present time for Long Haul. That does not mean that in the near future they will not be looking for captains, but they will def be on short haul and probably LGW base.

Good to see this is another job that the useless A380 rating excludes me from eh Nolimits....
