Even if that were to happen, you can guarantee that airlines would simply find a way of pinning the blame on the pilot for reporting for work fatigued in the first place. It's all over the manuals -...

Don't suppose anyone could advise whether those eligible for SFO are being offered fixed pattern at time of joining (subject to 100% roster)?

So they advertise it as full time and then offer 75%. Nice.

Slightly off topic (sorry), but has anyone joined EZY externally and been offered anything other than 100%? I remember hearing they were struggling to get people through the door with the 75%...

Totally agree, this stuff desperately needs addressing. Even some of the more senior guys admit (not even reluctantly) that JSS is totally unfair in its current form. They get literally everything...

I think at the moment I'd struggle to recommend BA as a company to work for at all, short haul or long haul. I agree with everything above - morale at rock bottom, scumbag management who couldn't...

Seniority is important, but I'm not sure I agree with this any more. Recruitment onto LH and SH fleets is almost on a par at the moment. I would question the benefit of taking SH over LH while that...

On the 320, none (without leave). You need to be in the top two thirds before weekends start appearing with any kind of regularity.

Yep, they know they'll get double the pay they had during the lower ranks of EZY. How about leaving for future prospects? You're only ever going to do day trips at EZY, for the rest of time, on the...

There's not much I can add to this, other than to say I'm afraid this has been my experience entirely. In a vain attempt to be positive, I do enjoy the trips/night stops, and some of the hotels are...

Being only several months in, I'm afraid I've reached the same conclusion. BA's obsession with cost is far more evident than in the LCC I worked for previously. It's really sad to see.

I can't...

Rex - tragically I can relate to nearly all of those. Perhaps my CRM is lacking but I also find people take the open question concept way too far. A recent favourite, "what do you think about use of...

Absolutely spot on. I never knew how difficult a single sector could be made until I joined BA - I regularly find myself in total disbelief as the guy next to me conducts a 30 minute brief on a...

Which makes it worse - you don't even benefit from the time off down route. I suppose I'm just amazed that BA have managed to engineer an environment where they can work people to the absolute bone...

14 days on in 17... long term fatigue on LH... yet people soldier on and refuse to report fatigued. We're our own worst enemy.

No one knows that for a fact yet. A third of the airline didn't even bid in the last JSS run and the parameters they're using are apparently changing every time. A good proportion of the people I fly...

Interesting reading. Having recently jumped ship from EZY too, these thoughts aren't too far from my own.

Things to take into account. Many rosters are self inflicted - lots of guys appear to...

Fascinating discussion, albeit ultimately easyJet vs BA again. As the Count accurately summarises, there are many pros and cons to both.

For me, the idea of reaching the pinnacle of my career in...

On that basis, you'll be in a hotel before every duty I presume? Unless your crystal ball advises you in advance of every single pile up on the M25.

I know this will have been covered before but would anyone mind confirming these numbers for a BA year 1 FO are still correct?

Is it really a no brainer though? Yes the finances in the LHS at Easy are wonderful, but if cash was the only consideration then one would also be better off staying put in the LHS at RYR.

Out of interest - for these lucky few who have been offered jobs on the 747, how long is it likely to be before they begin to see any reasonable degree of control over their roster?
