Most people on here, and elsewhere, put this down as a Human Factors incident. It's nothing at all to do with procedures - regardless of how your airline operates, FO's taxying, starting engines, or not. Hey, if that's how you want to operate, knock yourself out!

And, can we put the intersection business to bed too? Either it can be done, or can't, just as reduced thrust take offs can be done, and flights taking off without their fuel tanks full.

Jeez, is anyone else bored of this bloke?

You people are picking on one of your own. I don't care where he domiciles, no American would ever write "whilst," particularly four times in the same post, any more than a Yank would say "jolly good." Nor have I ever heard an American refer to a "honey pot."

411a calling other Pilots arrogant is a little bit of a stretch.

You really are the personification of the word old chap, but more than that, your opinions on everyones faults or procedures change from day to day.

You do seem a little confused but in a pattern that seems to repeat itself.

What's the word for it again, oh yes, here it is :

'Schizophrenia ( or ) is a mental disorder characterized by abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality. It most commonly manifests as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking with significant social or occupational dysfunction. ...'

It's not too late to get help !

Quality Assurance

I believe every company worth to mention has a quality assurance programme. The programme we run requires us to audit our suppliers and if they are not up the scratch we cannot employ their services.

In this case airport being the supplier of BA how that supplier can be allowed to operate with deficient marking of taxiways ? Any input please.
