Spectators Balcony (Spotters Corner) If you're not a professional pilot but want to discuss issues about the job, this is the best place to loiter. You won't be moved on by 'security' and there'll be plenty of experts to answer any questions.

Ground Ops

As ops coming into contact with CC most days much of the differing contributions are correct about the various rates of pay at BA.

The Ramp Loading Supervisor has the option of earning 40,000 without hardship as does the a/c dispatcher many of whom take home in excess of 2000 per month after stoppages.

Lots of the Managers take 40 - 70K per annum. My point at last whatever rate you are on people are still keen to join BA and not very keen to leave it as most jobs with BA give you a good grounding for retirement.

I am a firm believer of a fair rate of pay for a job.Yes flt crew earn good money and so they should they do a demanding job with a lot of responsibilities,good for them.
As for cabin crew throwing a few meals around trying to look professional $8000 per year is fair,if not generous.We all know what you earn for throwing a few meals around then sleeping in the crew rest areas is infact nearer the $50000 mark.Its no wonder none of you leave,if its that bad go elsewhere.
BA cabin crew are some of the oldest in the industry,because why leave when you can earn good rates of pay with little or no qualifications elsewhere.
This is how clever some are "will you cover door 2r please"said the csd,to the flt attendant,she picked up a blanket and put it across the door.
Now as i said a fair rate of pay for a fair job.

NigelSoFantastic is back. Hurrah. Before his Dad stops me with a censorship, I didn't say anything about Co-pilots. Hi Nigel.

A ridiculous comment with regard to B.A. Cabin Crew. It's Christmas so I won't comment any further.


Best wishes of the season to all of you.

Yes SEC, and that's 2.5 hrs between touchdown and pushback so with all the formalities , about 40 mins to yourself in 12-13 hrs.wow

Also most shorthaul pursers have been there 20 yrs-ish, where will you be then??

However , i do agree with your sentiments about shorthaul crew working hard (average 45-50 hrs a week) with 4 crew a320 & 5 crew 757 (and split cabin before anyone starts)
However they are in general happy beacuse their life keeps going.

As for sevenforseven you are an a*** .
But then again cabin crew will suss you out straight away and when you're gagging for company on your trip you will surely be ditched in favour of someone more enlightened and who has a life.
It's not a case of throwing a few meals around , same as your job isn't just monitoring a couple of systems like homer simpson

God help any crew in an emergency situation with you, i expect you'll go into complete denial as you contemplate your own magnificence and what a legend you really are .NOT.get a life

Talking

Master Sevenfourseven.

You I assume are a Cadet who thinks he is God. Aged 27 ish, going on 12. Never worked outside BA, and have had everything handed to you on a plate. Or aged 47 and ex RAF and know you are GOD.

Either way CRM is an issue that does not apply to you, and is "arty f@rty rubbish".

You clearly hate cabin crew because you cannot get any of the to "go out" with you.

When you are all alone in Barbados, do you ever wonder why?

I am not one of the "winging 'nigels'".

In your first posting you said:
As the flight crew have just agreed a pay increase that makes them the best paid pilots in Europe I don't think that you will find many of them agree with you.

Your next posting said:
The flight crew pay deal has been agreed by the reps and is now out to the members for the vote (result on 6th Jan I think)

These are very different statements and I am just suggesting that you get your facts correct before posting a message.
