Only EDI GLA and JSY night stops from LGW. So you might as well join EZY for a fixed roster if you're going to LGW.

LHR does do tours, but being at the bottom of the list you wont have much say in...

Whilst related, they are different settings for the "computer". The speed would be related to cost index, which the airline specifies for each flight. That speed would indicate that they were most...

BA do basically use the same model. Only there is a significant difference in reward. Less than 25% bonus over normal hourly rate. And people lap it up as soon as its available. Factor in no pension...

Just in case it helps, BA are in Abu Dhabi next week. I know its still a long way from HKG, but not as far as LHR.

I really don't want to sound like a broken record, but feel that people really need to come in with their eyes open. Reserve period requests are processed (quite rightly) according to seniority. I...

It also appears to depend on the fleet that you get assigned. So much for strict seniority. Junior 320 FO's are getting upgrades, whilst those senior that were directed to long haul appear to be...

Anything over 30 I would head to VS personally for the reasons quoted above, unless you really want short haul. In that case, head to easyJet.
