Sorry Hugh, didn't know of you, my 'handle' is a long held nickname!! The lack of news from Air 2 bob hopefully means that there is no victimisation there.

I flew with the Gent concerned a few weeks ago.....before I left the place.

He advised me that he felt he was being "looked at".......having received a warmand friendly letter from Training management.

What an outfit. Avoid it if you can is my opinion. Not that my word is worth much.

I am told that the CC chairman is currently on sick leave and that there is a chance this may be long term.

Many of us at Manchester know that he has not had an easy summer health wise and I am told that this has finally resulted in him having to take some time off.

I hope that we may all join in wishing him a speedy recovery and a return to full health in the soonest possible time.

Regards,

BB.

BB,

Hear Hear,

I enjoyed John's company and really looked forward to flying with him. He is a gent.

I hope that his health improves and that the Air2000 pilots appreciate that perhaps some of the illness issue is brought on by the extra duties he has carried out on all AMM pilot's behalf.....

It is a shame if he has "left" due to management pressure on him. I hope that is not the case as it will not help the company or pilot morale if it were to be the situation.

Good luck John.

Don't know JL, but he sounds an ok kinda guy; one of us.

Maybe Harpy's bothered that they might 'tear his heart out and feed it to the birds', if he names his sources. Does that sort of thing exist in aviation?

Yeah, I'm being stupid, course it does (silly boy, me)

Duhh!

Well said McC - Harpy, look at the history and facts before you start making accusatory remarks.

Don't try to protect confidentiality on the company forums Harpy, it leaks like a sieve.

What? I hope that BALPA are going to fight this one if not what are we paying for? Seems that they are losing out everywhere at the moment BA, Virgin, BMI and now air 2 bob.

It's Air 2000 huje! What can the union do? Who knows, but their record is pretty dismal so far.
