While acknowledging that JSS is FAR from perfect this isn't entirely accurate. I'm 60% ish on the 787 and I have been getting weekends off no problem. And going to the places I want to go to. I've...

I can't be too specific - someone else will be along with the exact options. What I can tell you is that it will probably be quite a long wait. As far as I'm aware, no part time has been granted...

Don't forget the chances are you may have to contribute towards some, or all, of a type rating at the end of your training too. A budget of 60k seems ambitious to me.

This hasn't been my experience. Out of 4 applications for parental leave I have only been successful once. On top of that it is never approved out of the gate, it is always waitlisted and you are...

I would say you have a fantastic future ahead of you. Someone as qualified as you shouldn't have any problem getting into BA (or similar, other options are available). BA will probably bite your hand...

Who cares who parks the aeroplane, really? Surely the terms and conditions of employment are a lot more important than SOP trivia.

I think the answer is that over 5 years, seniority will increase markedly faster on short haul. That means more weekends off, more credit efficient trips and less days at work, less reserve. Sounds...

Just to re-iterate what wiggy says above, if you want a long career at BA, AND commuting is not an issue for you (ie you live relatively close to Heathrow) then I would say take the first slot that...

Off topic alert.

You're a pilot. Just because we don't spend our days wrestling with the controls in the same way as we might have in the past doesn't mean the job hasn't evolved and developed new...

Not entirely true. The chap who owns iBid (tha BA bidding app) is making serious money. So if you can find a niche there is probably opportunity there.

Fair play to him for having the guts to...

The bigger question by far should be, what will you be paid and what will your lifestyle be as a junior captain? I suspect the answer on both counts all be extremely disappointing. Think extremely...

There is no news on the 2019 pay deal and there is unlikely to be any news anytime soon. Negotiations have barely begun (we're only just being asked about our priorities via survey). Historically...

I agree with a lot of what Rex says. Descent below MSA on a clear day, brake fans, auto brake, turbulence, and my favourite - landing distance calculations for Heathrow in a single aisle airbus. All...

The truth is, no one will really know what JSS is like until we have a few months of live bidding where everyone is regularly participating. If it turns out to be as bad as some people expect, BA...

As a BA 787 SFO I average about 5300 / month net on pay point 7 and I get 13/14 days off roughly every month.

The big advantage of Jet2 for me would be living up north, which I would vastly...

It's completely wrong to suggest you can't have a good home life at BA.

For starters I spend FAR more time with my family than most people who work normal 9-5 (read 8-6) jobs. Anyone who works in...

The reality is that it is swings and roundabouts.

When I left easyJet in 2011 it was a toxic atmosphere in which to work. An external management consultancy had completed a survey of employees...

While that may be true, most of the stories I hear sitting in the RHS are about how great life used to be back then. 7 days in the Caribbean, bus juice, one out one back to somewhere in Europe. I...

I must say your son is MOST lucky to have parents who are so supportive and are willing to sacrifice so much to make his dream come true. I hope it does eventually.

Whatever the plan for them is in the short term, I don't think you can draw any conclusions about their use beyond 2018. It may well be the plan to transfer them slowly across to long...
