Thoughts are with everyone receiving the awful news today.

Makes sense to do the rights issue from a place of relative strength (existing liquidity). This is the announcement I’d been waiting for. Assuming it is successful this gets us through the winter and...

Does anyone have an opinion what BA’s strategy might be going forwards? Sure, sign the current deal with BALPA, force through the changes with unite/GMB and then what? As others have pointed out, the...

As crap as the CAA are, there has to be a question mark over the AOC if the company decide to "go nuclear". Particularly if training appointment holders are sacked too. It just doesn't seem like a...

This to me is one of the more interesting comments on this thread which seemed to be glossed over when it was posted. The retraining bill if BA simply dismiss hundreds of the most junior pilots will...

One thing to consider, and I stress I have no inside information whatsoever but I offer this as a general point of principle.

I don't subscribe to the doom laden scenarios peddled by some whereby there are no new jobs for 10 years. However, now is categorically NOT the moment to start flight training, modular or otherwise....
