Enzo, are you sure you joined BA with 16 years of airline flying behind you? Thought you were at flightschool with me back in 2005/06. Anyway, I completely agree with you. I joined BA longhaul from...

You’re not nuts at all. Anyone who suggests you are needs to wake up to the world outside BA, as Wiggy has alluded to.

I also jumped ship from the Queen of the Skies at BA to head to low cost shorthaul. People were shocked - I even shocked myself - but in hindsight I’m a whole load happier. The reality is I should...

I also left BA as a DEP to return to my former loco outfit. Should never have left in the first place. It taught me a valuable lesson not to give up a command chasing the apparent prestige of flying...

Very interesting reading indeed. Wiggy as ever presents a very balanced and fair argument.

Chaps and chapesses - it's simple. If you don't think something is 'fair' then try and change it. If you...

Shabon - 10 to 12 nights a month out of your own bed or 10 to 12 nights a month out of any bed? I assume (and hope!) not the latter?

I was one of the aforementioned LH FOs who joined BA last year...

Jax - just to let you know I do plan to depart. Will be rejoining my old outfit in the spring. No complaints at all about BA. It was my choice to give up my command and go to BA. It was a gamble and...

I really don't want to be dragged into a debate. The uniform stores at LGW (along with a number of other things at LGW) work way better than life at LHR. I'm just passing on my experiences, that's...

4468 - what you write is spot on. BA has had to change in order to compete in the modern world. If it had stood still it would have been swallowed up. No complaints at all - it's just not the golden...

I'm more than happy to answer your question 4468.

Like the others, I do not wish to be negative and certainly don't wish to discourage anyone from applying to or accepting a position with BA. They...

Pork chop express - I couldn't agree more with you. As a joiner in 2016 coming from a Loco background I second your views entirely. BA is a great place to come to if you're in your 20s with no family...

I doubt it will make much difference to internal bidders / external recruitment but I personally know two recent joiners to the company on long haul who are returning to Ryanair in the coming few...

For me, there is a small element of left to right regret but the main issue is longhaul and its physical effect on my body and mind. I've turned into a miserable git at home! As far as BA itself is...

This makes very interesting reading indeed. I joined in the spring straight onto longhaul having previously been an Easy skipper. I completely second the somewhat disillusioned thoughts of those...

757 sim has definitely gone and its space is now occupied by a newly built 787 sim. Assessment is only on the 747 now.

Level_FL350, I flew from the left seat in my BA sim check and I'm sure they couldn't care less which seat you're in. From experience, I wouldn't bother paying for a practice sim seasion anywhere...

You no longer have to wait 12 months. Emails go out to some people within 6 months inviting them back. I had an email inviting me back to the sim after only 5 months and then passed and start shorly...
