If you think about it, SH LGW is not a bad decision as a new start, depending on where you live and what your priorities are. Mostly day trips, so pretty decent if you live nearby. Relative seniority...

I'd go on the assumption that whatever the outcome of all the Brexit stuff, they'll still only take people who have the legal right to live and work in the UK.

They've got it at CDG. Particularly useful because of the two sets of parallel runways, so there's constantly landing traffic crossing over the takeoff runways. (They tend to land on the outer...
