I doubt it, I remember virtually the same sentence being used to describe us in 1999. Since then, pilot demand has ebbed and flowed, during times of oversupply the same chant re-surfaces and there is...

I think the saying is up #### creek without a paddle, unless the politicians get their act together on this. Which, with the current situation in the UK, seems unlikely. An update from BALPA...
