I'm probably repeating a lot of whats been said already - but to reiterate:

An interesting and informative thread (I use that loosely) which had come to a valid consensus. Only for someone who had not bothered reading any of it to start repeating the same points which had...

Sorry mate but thats a load of rubbish :ugh: Have a read of the comments above. No rotation = severe damage. And if we must keep harping on about vibration, the checklist refers to airframe vibration...

Its got nothing to do with pilot input.

Essentially, hydraulic pressure is removed from them during takeoff which causes them to droop - then lift aerodynamically with increased airspeed. Then at...

RexBanner

To be fair, a lot of 787 pilots are flying almost full rosters. Can't speak for the 350.

However, the key here is training. With the new 787 deliveries, the training department...

I do recall some mention of this some time ago - I can't remember if it was rumour or from an official source.

But for clarity, BA are not using sickness, or any other absense for that matter, as...

Rex - I'm trying to unravel your comment about why LIFO is fair but I'm afraid your arguement makes no zero sense to me. I do agree with your assertion about a stay of execution though,...

I think others above have answered this well. But I'll try too -

I propose a wager. I bet you that the average age of a member of the bottom 10% of the MSL is lower than that of the top 10%.

Somethings are illegal to 'discriminate' upon - age is one of them. Its my understanding that LIFO in our industry is likely so highly correlated with age that it could be illegal.

I can't think...

Its not quite that black and white. Note the 'Unfair Selection' section. I'd imagine seniority at BA / Virgin is so highly correlated with age that it could be argued to be the same thing.
