Grease Weasel : I would speculate that the 'kebab shop' would more than likely be looking for 'Kebab Makers' or 'Chip Fryers' to work for them in about *** months or so, when one would expect them to be getting their own 'deep fat fryers' up and running. Not sure if they would be taking delivery of the 146 litre or the 737 litre 'deep fat fryers' though ! Incidently, it may well have been the 'kebab shop' that have been asking the 'girls working the till' to work for them (making the odd 'donna kebab' - Wey hey !!) instead of the 'electricity supplier' asking them. This would seem to make more sense to me but then what do I know ?

Tilli : Thanks, lets keep up the mutual back slapping !

"Mutual back-slapping?" Cannot recall you ever slapping mine, and I certainly wasn't slapping yours. I merely praised what was a quite exceptional post by any standards. You truly excelled, especially when compared with your usual profane offerings. And now you've gone and b@@@@@ed (yep, it's still a swear word) it up by returning to form.

BTW young man, did you get that command yet, or was it something else that caused you to develop the 'jumbo sausage' from what was once unarguably a tiny chipolata?

JumbOlinO....Please do us all a favour, go down to your local library and pull out the book called " Advanced Relaxation Techniques and Karma..."
Believe me my friend, and I am sure you do (being an insider..!!) that the monies owed will transpire, it is just a matter of time.

If not well how's about this for a story....

I was on vacation on the Riviera last week and met an old lawyer friend of mine and asked him what he was doing there.

He said to me, "Remember that lousy house I bought in London? Well, it caught fire, so here I am with the fire insurance proceeds. What are you doing here?"

I replied, "Remember that sh*ty house I had in Wales? Well, the river overflowed, and here I am with the flood insurance proceeds."

He looked puzzled. "Damm," he asked, "how do you start a flood?"

Keep smiling and all the best to those of you who lost your jobs....

Tilii : For Gods sake, it was just a turn of phrase man !
Also, unfortunately you seem to have confused me with someone else.

Anyway, thanks for the personal insult, which enervates your credibility no end.

Invalid Delete: Reasonable theory but I happen to know for certain that the 'Girls Working the Till' have been approached by the 'Electricity Supplier' - maybe because the 'Kebab Shop' doesn't have much experience with 'Till Workers.' I'm not sure how many will be interested to work in the 'Kebab Shop' though...
Maybe it's a good idea to see if the 'Pizzeria' down the road needs some 'Pizza Makers', however I hear that 'Maccy D's' and 'BK' are taking some 'Chefs' - I really don't care whether it's 'Chips', 'Kebabs', 'Pizzas' or 'Burgers' that I make - as long as I have some 'Beer Tokens' to take home at the end of the day!
I tell you what though - I 'Fryed' a mean 'Chip' and I reckon I could make one damn tasty 'Kebab'!

We are currently underway with eclipse airlines to recover unpaid wages.
We plan to do the same against Panasia.

cheers

I meant no 'personal insult' to you, and apologise unreservedly if you have taken my post above to be one.

As to my confusing you with someone else, I do assure you that I have absolutely no idea who you are.

My remark with respect to sausages and chipolatas was intended as mere humour. It probably fell short of the mark. Clearly, you have sharper wit and broader humour than do I. In future I'll confine myself to the more serious approach.

I say again (without back-slapping) that your earlier post was brilliant and gave me great pleasure. I felt your later offering somehow detracted from it. That's all I meant to say. :o

Lad, no worries been away the last couple of days, getting plenty of 'Karma' of the Karma sutra type'

Invalid D, Very amusing post. He is another point of view.

The CHIP FRIERS were very skilled people. So skilled that they also knew how to produce ELECTRICITY. In fact, they knew how to produce this ELECTRICITY using the very training, and procedures as applicable to this ELECTRICITY COMPANY(BWA)based in England. Now the ELECTRICITY COMPANY decides that it wants to supply electricity to Sicily. Instead of pumping this electricity all the way from England to Sicily, it would make sense and cost less if they used locally based Electricity workers (ex CHIP FRIERS BUT CURRENT IN MAKING ELECTRICITY) and supply a couple of sub stations(airplanes) for them to work with. SIMPLE.

I know that we worked for NJI and not BWA, I know of the relationship and that Wazza owed money left right and centre, I guess what I am asking is for BWA to offer to employ some of us as full time employees working for them. It must be a tempting, because we are already rated and familiar with their operational procedures and with living and working in Italy.

Thumbs down

There is a rumour doing the rounds that Wazza is in Ireland trying to start a new airline (with our money). Has any heard anything?

Jumbolino,

It wouldn't cost less because we would have to pay for MORE pilots (i.e pay local pilots while we leave our exsiting pilots on the ground). We already have more than enough pilots to fly the aircraft.

Tilii : Perhaps I took your post the wrong way too. It is indeed very difficult (for all of us) to get humour across using the written word.
I think I must been using a different name when I was referring to the 'mutual back slapping' - Hence the fact that you didn't know what I was on about. :o
I hope all is now as clear as dirty chip fat !

Jumb0line0 : I don't doubt what you say and I am sure that you would be invaluable to the operation but Hamrah's post explains it all. Simply that there are already too many 'Chip Fryers'.

Good luck to all those looking for jobs and lets hope there are no more bouts of lay off's.

Happy Christmas Everyone!

It`s seems that British World Italia has died even before it was born and BWA isn`t coming down at all in the end.............
George, you can run but you can`t hide......

With BWA going bust, does this mean that the new British World`s Italia operation in Sicily has failed even before it started!!!

Hey, no longer anybody from BWA on this forum, giving comments to ex-NJI drivers like
"Sorry for you guys"...
"We wish you good luck for your future"..
"146 never made profits anywhere"...

?? ??

It seems the new operation is not gonna even start!
I wonder if they are going to pay the money back to those who already purchased tickets...
By the way, Pan Air has started flying between FCO and PMO with 737's (1 of which ex NJI) and this makes it the 4th or 5th airline on the route.
