Just to be clear, BA pilots went on strike over the "joint" pay claim last year, when both GMB and Unite capitulated at the first hurdle. I respect our colleagues and applaud them for what they're...

True. But it also sees the most financially precarious out of a job while those nearing the end of their careers sit happily on whopping salaries.

I sit well below the chopping line. LIFO seems...

It's an interesting situation because a) BALPA have stated they want LIFO, but also b) their primary focus is to protect jobs. Anyone with brain can see these two items are mutually exclusive. One...

20% certainly seems to be a number thrown around a lot at the moment, seemingly with no foundation. Someone in BA mentioned 80% capacity by Christmas - this does not automatically mean they're about...

Expect there'll be a good number off to Virgin when contracts start going out. I do fly with many who are 'looking' but with Brexit hanging over the industry at the moment it's a risky time to move....

Minor points I suppose but a) is it definite that since the introduction of JSS we need to have met CAP before overtime is paid? And b) pretty sure it's still 1.25 on NCP, not that it makes...

Bear in mind the rungs are about to get a 7.5% increase (along with allowances), but yes, they're still uncompetitive.

For anyone who spends any portion of their journey on the M25: double the...

To my mind it's pretty clear. If you absolutely want long haul, join BA (or Virgin). If you can cope without it, join EZY. I've worked at both companies and was considerably happier at the latter,...

To revive an old post, in part thanks to the current climate at BA, I'm wondering how many are still like minded to leave. I meet people on the jet bridge regularly who are at their wits end and I'm...

Short of increasing the freeze (entirely possible I suppose) I can't see them getting rid of bidding. BA aren't stupid - short haul would become a ghost town. And 3 day west coast in an airport...

Roster swapping does indeed help to mitigate the failings of JSS for the juniors. Successfully doing so however means being married to your iPad and obsessively checking every single open time...

Even if that were to happen, you can guarantee that airlines would simply find a way of pinning the blame on the pilot for reporting for work fatigued in the first place. It's all over the manuals -...

Don't suppose anyone could advise whether those eligible for SFO are being offered fixed pattern at time of joining (subject to 100% roster)?

So they advertise it as full time and then offer 75%. Nice.

Slightly off topic (sorry), but has anyone joined EZY externally and been offered anything other than 100%? I remember hearing they were struggling to get people through the door with the 75%...

Totally agree, this stuff desperately needs addressing. Even some of the more senior guys admit (not even reluctantly) that JSS is totally unfair in its current form. They get literally everything...

I think at the moment I'd struggle to recommend BA as a company to work for at all, short haul or long haul. I agree with everything above - morale at rock bottom, scumbag management who couldn't...

Seniority is important, but I'm not sure I agree with this any more. Recruitment onto LH and SH fleets is almost on a par at the moment. I would question the benefit of taking SH over LH while that...

On the 320, none (without leave). You need to be in the top two thirds before weekends start appearing with any kind of regularity.

Yep, they know they'll get double the pay they had during the lower ranks of EZY. How about leaving for future prospects? You're only ever going to do day trips at EZY, for the rest of time, on the...

There's not much I can add to this, other than to say I'm afraid this has been my experience entirely. In a vain attempt to be positive, I do enjoy the trips/night stops, and some of the hotels are...

Being only several months in, I'm afraid I've reached the same conclusion. BA's obsession with cost is far more evident than in the LCC I worked for previously. It's really sad to see.

Rex - tragically I can relate to nearly all of those. Perhaps my CRM is lacking but I also find people take the open question concept way too far. A recent favourite, "what do you think about use of...

Which makes it worse - you don't even benefit from the time off down route. I suppose I'm just amazed that BA have managed to engineer an environment where they can work people to the absolute bone...
