Talking GILL OUT OF ADMINISTRATION

Did anyone see Channel 3 local news this evening detailing the emergence from administration for Gill Airways? Apparently the MD has bought the Company for 4.5 million. Not seen it myself, heard second hand but no mention on Channel 1 BBC local. Very good news if true.

It wasn't a figment of your imagination FC!

Several other people saw it too....but just the once. Whats the betting that our esteemed journos cocked it up again, and pre-released an embargoed press release!

Lets hope it's good news soon! Tomorrow?

Don't know about any embargo, but Gill indeed did emerge from Administration as of 16:00 on 23/04/01.

The notice on the company board says that letters are being sent to all employees by snailmail.

Question

Now, who do they take back first?
The ones who bailed out when things got tough (e.g. to Brymon, etc), or the ones who stayed loyal but were made redundant?

Ah, but of course, the spokesman said there had been no redundancies! I must remember that next time I go to the Job Centre.

A bit tough old boy. I for one left for another operator, but only to secure my future in all the uncertainty that surrounds a company in administration. Incidentally I loved every minute of empolyment with Gill and was very sad to leave.

Good luck for the future Gill

Son waita tell ya,my departure was due to a base closure and Im sure that even you could work out which one it was.
The only reason for going to another job was due to my quality of life.
I respect the unsung hero's who just got on with it.
There may be a few people who left on not the most happiest of terms but I for one can say that I enjoyed my time there and that the sucess of Gill is due to the "above and beyond the call of duty" people it has.
I would like to think that this time round that the drivers get a better say,no sorry I mean get a say.

So guys & girls Respecta Selecta,Ahi

And remember son I know your name

Best regards and wishes

Keepit lit son!

And about time too......

I for one only left due to being offered more security (and more money I hasten to add) but I had some of the best years of my aviation career with a great group of troops. I too was sorry to leave but goodwill don't pay the mortgage.

When will MN wake up & smell the flowers & give CP the big heave ho so Gill get go from strength to strength.

Best wishes to those that stuck it out, you deserve a bright & prosperous future. No forgeting MN who made it all possible.

Indeed MN has indeed done an excellent job in sorting out the problems. I'm sure the troops however would like to see an end to the Company making significant announcements via the media before the employees know wghats goinbg on. This is the second time in succession that major items have been announced to the television and newspaper media before employees have been officially told.

Please, cease this practice forthwith!!!!!!

You know. I am a simple soul really. I believe in good old fashioned values and I also value high standards and good manners. They don't cost anything, but are very hard to come by sometimes.

It is then, very sad to note that the knockers, and the ungracious, are no-where to be seen in Gill's mammoth success. It would have been just plain nice to have seen those 'names' just say "hey guys congratulations, you did it". Not much to expect - is it?

InFinRetirement....Most of those you refer to were people who had left Gill and were simply trying to convince themselves that they had made the right decision.
Of course, had Gill gone under, they would all be crowing now, however, THEIR SILENCE SAYS IT ALL.

All seems pretty self congratulatory to me. Perhaps the abscence of good wishes from external sources is a true indication of the ill feelings felt towards Gill Airways not least by those to whom it still owes a great deal of money.
