Muhammad Antar

A lot of what you write is depressingly accurate, particularly the cynical behaviour of flight training schools and airlines, the outrageous cost of training, the horribly cyclical...

Travel isn't going to be allowed by Easter in my view.

What we are going to see is an "at all costs" approach to protecting the progress made through vaccination. In effect this means seriously...

Plastic787

Bingo.

Thats why I think optimism about international travel is misplaced at this point, unfortunately. You can see a point at which specific travel corridors may open. I do think in...

It's been clear for a while that the issue is going to be mutations and variations that will naturally take place as transmission of the virus carries on around the world. You can see why...

I do think it is significant that it is, in large part, underwritten by UK Export Finance (ie the government). It would appear to be an acknowledgment of the importance of BA to the national interest...

I think more flight crew CR in the immediate future is, on balance, unlikely. It has been clear for a very long time that winter this year was going to be murder for the aviation industry. As...

I’m really not sure how much clearer JM could have been. Zero CR was never an option. Not sure what else he can say to convince people?

Thoughts are with everyone receiving the awful news today.

BA will undoubtedly require a bailout. The only question is will it be public, private or both. Personally my money is on the latter, followed by the former.

The politics are interesting. As...

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...

I didn't really ask the question from a "lets throw up our hands in desperation and despair" point of view. Maybe that didn't come across.

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...

Maybe one of the few benefits of the current crisis is that atypical models of employment will be less socially acceptable in the future. Hey, we can hope.
