If you want the distance the ant travels (maintaining that the Earth is a sphere), you just need angle C. This can be calculated using the Sine rule:

OH/SinC = CO/SinH

SinH = Sin90 = 1

I always thought it was because you are hovering above a rotating planet. If you donít fly sideways to keep up with it, the ground will rotate away from you. 😉

Pensions can be drawn up to ten years prior to the individual’s state retirement age. Someone drawing their pension early makes no difference to the fund’s liabilities though, so I am unsure why...

Whilst the pension payments are not insignificant, they are a pretty small part of the company’s cash burn at the moment.

I see BALPA are still suggesting that the only C744 in the CRS are those who did not bid for short haul which is false.

They also state “Some C744 move to C32L; likewise P744 to P32L”.

Permanent is a long time so I doubt anyone can answer that, but in the current plan, all Gatwick A320 pilots are officially becoming Heathrow based A320 pilots. A small handful are entering the CRS...

It is all a moot point now anyway, as the CRS is knocking on my door, and I for one, would very much rather be flying.

Much of what you say is true Bex. What I find sad about the situation is the salary envy from low down the payscales towards those high up the payscales, yet that exact same disparity existed when we...

I am reminded of the demise of the coal industry when I hear of people demanding temporary change, and wanting to strike at the moment. It is pure insanity.

I have no problem with BA choosing to protect pilot jobs, be they ‘efficient’ or otherwise. However, if these pilots haven’t actually started their training yet, courses should really be allocated in...

Have you seen the FAN Rex? It reads ‘operational preference will be given to A320 LGW to A320 LHR (Captains and First Officers)’. Is that not doing precisely what you want?

Well my VR quote was equivalent to about a year in the CRS bidding for short haul and close to 2 years if not bidding for short haul.

I agree it is probably miles over the top, but the point is we do not yet know just what damage this virus is doing to us. Immediate death rate is just one part of the equation. It is already very...
