Not sure why you say that, haven't Bristows won the BP contract from CHC? Or do you know something else?

BP do not feed/water crews. i.e. there is no refreshments.(Except the West Sole A who do a nice Espresso/latte).

We hear Bristows always asking for sandwiches/refreshments down in the SNS ? Viking etc, but BP don't feed the crews. You might get fed from the actual offshore guys when you pick them up on an evening, but that's it.

There are now about 40 pilots looking for work wherever they can get it from 31st August 2010. Seemingly Bristows have enough pilots already.

Just hope the stress doesn't cause any incidents either on the flying side or engineering side. Thinking you're being made redundant in less than 6 months doesn't exactly keep you in the right frame of mind!

What is the law regarding current employees if a contract changes management (company). Are the present employees jobs protected - I know they are in other countries.

Hello Helimutt

Seemingly Bristows have enough pilots already.
Where did this info come from? Surprised that Bristows have 9+ N Sea IFR 3000 hr pilots to fill the Captain/training positions plus 9 IFR N Sea experienced co-pilots who can fly for more than 2 hrs without being fed.

Well you know what rumour mills are like!


As for Yonez, you're a funny guy!
I know we all like to have a bit of a laugh, but it's a bloody shame for the guys who've worked their t*ts off for the last 12-18 months off, ops, management, pilots, engineers etc trying to give the best service possible to bp, then now find themselves looking at the very real possibility of redundancy with not many opportunities available, especially if they have no other trade to fall back on. Families suffer, children suffer through school changes etc.

Rumour has it that BP are now asking for a fourth aircraft for this year. So the expectation is that the Humberside guys will work their arses off again, despite having been kicked in the nuts by BP. This will probably happen as professional people will do a professional job, which BP do not deserve.
