Remember with BA you are likely to bear the full force of JSS juniority several times over your career: joining, going long haul, even changing LH fleets, gaining a command etc. It is common for...

OK thanks. I have seen 2 different spreadsheets based on retirement at age 65, with no allowance for pilots retiring earlier, going part time, sickness etc, i.e. the worst case scenario. The average...

Rex, why do you think there are a large number of retirements due in 2020/21? VinRouge wrote something similar above "the forecast retirement bulge is huge." I hope that you are both right, but the...

To sum up many of the posts above:

BA is a very very long term bet.

If you are under about 35 years old then BA still has a lot to offer.

If you are over about 35 then think long and hard...

Dutch pilots at BA are leaving for KLM, with 6 gone so far and more resignations from BA in the pipeline. There are many reasons for making such a move, but BA's audit of pilots who spend more than...

You only have to be junior once? I guess that is true if you wish to stay in the same fleet and seat all of your career.

I believe that your comments about JSS are just as accurate for many of...

After more than 20 years in BA I am a reasonably junior LH skipper. My first JSS roster is a disaster, far far worse than under Bidline. It may be another 10 years or so before I become senior enough...

Thats a good question skaterboi. A pilot on LH reserve is allowed 2 hours to reach the car park, that would seem a reasonable start point. There may be a notice from BA soon clarifying their...

BA are continuing to focus on the commutes to work of pilots. More pilots were contacted by management last week about their journey time during an audit completed in April. BA seem to be going...

These posts make grim reading. It may be worth summarising why BA pilot T&Cs fell so far so quickly (IMHO). It would seem that the previous BACC prioritised keeping all BA pilots on the same...

In BA senior LH pilots normally fly the longer flights, the junior pilots tend to do the East Coast, Central Africa and Middle East. The junior pilots work harder, have more fatigue, but may not do...

It is likely that someone joining BA in their mid-thirties could have a good career at BA. That should allow enough time to gain a long haul command by about age 55...as ever it is impossible to...

Why not email people in the BACC and ask them what they are doing and why? A few facts may help clear the usual rumours / confusion.
