This is already in place, the legal minimum, has been since the beginning of the year. A lot of the cabin crew are shattered already. Great for morale!

AIH also do 4 on a 320 if EU and 5 if Non EU destinations. .5 on a B757 is pushing it a bit though...

Yes 7 are going from NCL, but that leaves an awful lot more than 12 !!

Norbert Colon:

Canadians ? The Canada 3000 contract (NCL) ended 18 months ago - anyway they are no more. Do you mean the ryan pilots (Americans) ? If so, no they are not coming over this summer.

This is seriously bad news for UK aviation.

I can understand companies wanting to make econonmic sense etc . . but it sounds like JMC are pushing things to the far extreme.

For those who have lived/worked in the LGW/LHR area and seen so many changes through the 80's/90's , this has got to be one of the worst episodes an airline has enforced on it's staff yet.

People who fly do it for the love of the job and unique opportunities they are given (and the often hard work that comes with that.). .To find yourself 10 years down the line of a career path, with a home/family/other commitments ,then 'just laid off' to make way for some more poorly paid new temps is a situation presented to you by a compamy with no foresight/forethought.

Whatever happened to the V important qualities of LOYALTY AND EXPERIENCE ??? Are some airline management just totally crazy?/blind?

And to put 5 crew on a 235 seat 757 is tantamount to slave labour if they are still required to carry out a full service - it's bad enough with 7.

Need i even point out the security implications??. .There will never be a crew member available to keep a watchful eye on the cabin/gallies/flightdeck/toilets etc....

JMC are asking for a whole lot of trouble imposing forced redundancies on loyal crew and reducing the crew compliment to an unreasonable level .

I can only wish all the crew remaining the best of luck under this regime, and even more so to those who have been unfairly laid off, a fresh start in the coming new season.

I won't even say what I wish to their underhand management.

Rumours abound of a tie-up with A2K(aka First Choice) - is this a case of getting the numbers right before a big announcement?

In fairness, rumours also around that First Choice. .are about to get back into bed with Kuoni which. .would perhaps make more sense in this troubled. .little world of ours............

ToonTartCart - apologies, I did put a ? against NCL, and NCL crews are amongst the best in the Country.. .5 on a B757 must come with reduced service, throw in a bit of sickness downroute and that'll change
