Hello guys,

just a simple question. I am rated on B777 and A320, presently flying the B777 for two years (A320 four years in total) and have 4500hrs tt. If I pass the screening for BA, which fleet can I expect? Is it possible to go straight on the Triple seven or do I have to expect to start on A320 family, which is no problem at all for me, its only just to clarify.

Many thanks

Hi

Does anyone know if there is a more up to date list of BA's fleet and future deliveries than the link below on IAGs website which is dated Mar 2009.

IAG - International Airlines Group - Fleet / Product

Its difficult to prep for and interview when the companies own website is 2 1/2 years out of date.

Thanks

Ron-B,

I dont think there is a 744 sim at CVT.

Probably better doing it in a 783 - not much difference.

Dihaz,

That probably IS jumping the gun as the 783 is a long way off yet!!!


Perhaps the 738?

Hi Guys,

I think Ron-B may be talking about the 747 'experience' in some blokes spare room in his house in Coventry! (I kid you not!)

I haven't been myself but I have heard of a few guys that used it as a bit of a 'nav raw data' refresher!...........but sorry Ron, I've no idea how good or worthwhile it is!

It's not what we think is a good starting salary, it's what you think is a good starting salary.

From what I could see when I applied, it's also not a mandatory field to be filled in

Left it blank as it's irrelevent - you'll be paid what BA's salary scale says!

Any News

Hi,

I see that some people have already heard back from BA, both those with a "yes" and a "no". I applied last Wednesday (20th) and have yet to hear anything back. I'm not being impatient, I was just wondering if they were literally wading through applications in order or if they were filtering somehow. Has anyone who applied on Wednesday or after heard back yet?

If so, were you already Type rated? Hours etc?

Cheers

It's earlier in the thread if you trawl - we were told (on Day 1) 49,085 basic and to expect 10-12k in allowances etc. on top.

I applied on Saturday 16th in the evening. Still not heard.

No idea how they are processing the applications but at least I haven't had a no yet, although I might get one soon.
