Deano777, Snap, along with a good few others I believe, perhaps they are looking at Jet/TR/Command experience first.

Hi Splashndash.

Not sure to be honest, because SmilingKnifed has got through. So long as I haven't got the PFO there's hope

It would seem that very few non-rated or those who haven't previously been in the hold pool have got an invite so far. Those that have must have been exactly what BA were looking for.

I have nearly 2000hrs medium jet (not a BA type) and applied on the 16th July and haven't heard yet.

Splashndash and Deano777, hello

My hand is also up as Dash guy waiting to hear. No PFO yet and the Sun's out today, so here's hoping!

Guys, relax!!

Unlike Virgin, they will get back to each and everyone of you, whether it be a yes or a no.

Once your application is in, there's nothing you can do. As has been said before, no news is good news!

When you join BA, you'll find yourself hanging around a lot out of LHR so get the practice in!

When did you apply? Did they mind you calling?


Has anyone else that applied before the 17th July also still not had a response?

I applied 3 days ago. I called up and they were very friendly, they said they had a shortlist of guys who they are yet to respond to.

Got that email

I applied on 19th, and it's been the longest 10 days of my life waiting for an answer, ANY answer! Got the email this morning inviting me for a date in September.

1800 hours TT, 1600 jet, non-relevant type rating.

Good luck to everyone applying

When did you apply? Also can I ask if you were modular or integrated?

Thanks

You only waited 3 days to call them?? And I thought I was impatient.

Maybe I'll call next week if I haven't heard.

Just wondering what you guys wrote on the application for the question asking "salary sought" ?

Currently filling in the BA DEP scheme application and looking for a bit of help.

The question regarding decision making, sources of information and how others were influenced; I am torn between a few answers as to what to choose.

Have a few flying related experiences that I could use (each equally different) and a few from previous employment in the airport. Not sure whether to use an example that is more technical in terms of flying, an answer that is more focused to customer commitment or an answer that has not a lot to do with flying at all.

Any help would be appreciated - really dont want to mess it up!

Sugar1390, this really is a decision you should be able to make yourself. However, I would stick to flying related examples and there's no need to be too technical.
