There are Hoppa buses that cover all the terminals and hotels at LHR. A route map may be available online? Check a route running from the Bath Road (where the Renaissance is I think?) towards T4. Braincrank is on the way. Jurys Inn Heathrow Airport and Hatton Cross Underground are very close to here.

Sorry to hear that. When did you apply & what is your experience if you don't mind me asking?

Me to, RJ Captain 4500hrs. Obviously not got the "right stuff"

2nd crack at the BA application, maybe buying the type rating helps after all?

Might have changed in the last 3 years, but no medical when I joined.

Mate of mine also got a PFO today - considerably more than 2500 hrs, current skipper in another airline with > 18 years in the mil flying multis.

Good luck to all.

Have more slots become available? Haven't had an email yet to say they have, I am just waiting on a date.

Good luck to all still waiting

Clearedfortaxi, six-sixty
How can I get to the website page showing the interview slots? I logged in but the only things I can see are my application details.
Do you confirm I still have to wait their e-mail in order to book the interview?
Thanks guys

You have to select 'book interview' on the left of where it says job description 'Direct entry pilot' at the 'Rivers, Cranebank'.

When you click on that, either it will say 'no slots available' or it will come up with whatever dates are available.

I suspect they are releasing dates to those in order.

I'll patiently wait my turn, no rush!!

Can anyone please confirm the format of the first assessment day?

Is it just the interview now or is it still the interview, group exercise, verbal and numerical reasoning? I have heard a few different reports.

Sorry if this is old information but a quick note would be greatly appreciated.

Dihaz,
thanks for the hint, but Maybe I am looking in a different place.
What I am doing is logging in and the website still showing me my summary initial application page and from there... no trace of what you mentioned.
Any help?
