I think I get what you are trying to say, but in a growing economy there is no reason why profits cannot continue to rise as we grab hold of our costs. IAG want their return on capital and will not...

Not sure what you are talking about there Wiggy. First I've heard of last year being an "outlier". Before Brexit the profit was forecast to continue to grow, in part due to the unwinding of fuel...

4468,

There are very few compulsory retirements for the next 5 years, and the masses do not hit 65 for about a decade hence the stagnation and long times to get off the SH fleets.

The number of pilots hitting CRA is low for the next 5 or so years, in the tens not hundreds, before it ramps up to around the 100 p.a. figure in a decade from now. Currently new commands and moves...

The average course size at OAA is probably around the 20 mark. The odd double-course gets up to 50 but they are rare. As a guess I would hazard that 200-250 integrated cadets going through each year...

Wasn't aware of that about CityJet. Shows that you really do have to do your research into the airline mentoring the scheme. Looks like BA and easyJet are the better of the schemes currently in...

Joe86, look out for CityJet too, they tend to run a mentored scheme down at FTE most years. TCX may run theirs again soon.
