Received my redundancy notice (again) in the mail this morning. Looks as though the're still using the old, flawed selection method when deciding whose for the chop (despite all our misgivings about it). Still first out of this pantomime means better seniority in the next and at least we stand a better chance of being paid back our 15%. Good luck fellow job seekers!

I think you may find that you're flying 'pax' out of MAN over the next few weekends, so that should generate some money!!!

If you think that flying Pax out of Manchester for a few weekends will save our jobs or bring the company back on to a sound finacial basis I strongly recomend you hand your notice in and join the ranks of the ex Heavylift employees with the rest of us- its time HLA got real insted of living on past achievments

sorry to hear the news guys, writing has been on the wall for sometime, especially since the joint venture, and new offices, rumour has it a little exercise for the fire brigade there recently, better luck next time.It is about time FA henchman stopped telling lies as 15% will not help. .sell his chair will help.

Just to give the pot a stir on this topic; heard on a recent trip that the management intends dumping one of the freighters, probably AA. Anyone know for certain or is this more disinformation from the fun factory. <img src="eek.gif" border="0">
