I presume you have the right to live and work in the EU? In BA you'd be doing mixed flying, short haul and long haul. Nobody really does ultra long haul in Europe, there's nowhere far enough away to...

I don't think anyone said otherwise. Ironically the view from the other side of the Atlantic is that in the US it's the flights dispatcher who makes all the important commercial decisions and the PIC...

Incorrect.

Clearly you are not au fait with BA 747 SOPs!

Or alternatively BA don't think they should punish a pilot because he sent a comic text to a...

Nope, the manufacturer and the certifying authority have already done that and the aircraft is approved to continue on three engines.

Oh I'm quite sure cxorcist, with good info from the horses mouth to back it up. As Asteroid mentions, BA have a sale on at the moment which may be affecting the fares on the website, but as most of...

BA haven't dropped their J class now the A380 is on the route, they've been chasing yield over volume on this route for well over three years and the A380 only adds 26 more J seats.



No, but it...

Emirates fill their A380s out of LHR by adopting a charter pricing model, dropping the price of their seats in order to fill the excess capacity they've bought and don't know what to do with. Think...

You're quite right that an approach into home base is briefed differently to an approach into a tricky airfield. Are you seriously suggesting I should brief terrain issues into LHR in the same detail...

No, it isn't. Perhaps you are not quite up to speed with the latest thinking? Approach briefings need to be relevant to the circumstances of the day. Labour the same points each and every time and...

I don't think anyone said a 500 foot gate was dangerous per se. BA had a 500 foot gate for ages and everyone grumbled when it went up to 1000 feet. Properly briefed and planned a lower gate is...

Any kids in the flight deck? Wood was CRC checked to the required level for his job. It's not BA's responsibility to police his social activities.

He wasn't charged. He wasn't proven guilty. He...

There's nothing in there that says he was working on behalf of, or representing, BA in his charity work. Sure he may have roped in some crew to volunteer over Easter, but they were volunteers just...

Given the highly litigious nature of BAs lawyers I suspect they'll fight any claim of liability, no matter how tenuous. Coughing up cash to pay for the (unproven) criminal acts of an employee would...

They don't, but I doubt the matter will go unnoticed once someone tries to claim that he was in some way acting in a pseudo-official BA capacity.
