you lot are carrying on as though you haven't seen the thread going on parallel to this one.

Believe me if you have secure employment,don't leave it for this shambles until we have a sweep out of the office.

Farefield,

It looks like the other Virgin thread has dissappeared maybe Scroggs lost his nerve after posting about VAA Management.

Still if you need a job VAA are short today. Just had my Sunday morning text we're desperate for someone to fly the .............

The other thread has not disappeared; it's in R&N. I don't know why it's bounced between here and there.

One of my mates just had the e-mail this morning offering an assessment day in a few weeks. Thought people would be interested to know.

Good luck to the rest of you

Why the hll would you want to join Virgin. EVERY pilot is totally pi$$ed off. BA are allegedly recruiting so try them first. You'll probably meet quite a few VS guys on your interview day and if you get the job then you'll be with VS guys too!

The grass might be greener but once you get there it might not taste as nice.

Of course there are worse places.

Just don't believe the hype, keep your fingers crossed whilst in the lowest 150 places on the redundancy, sorry I mean seniority list, and you'll be fine.

Develop a strategy for combating chronic fatigue and zombie state;

Oh, and be happy to be an FO for 15 or more years.

If you can do that and keep smiling, then this is THE best job around.

Good luck for the future to everyone.

Pilots are their own worst enemies. Which is why the industry is in the mess it is. But that's another topic.
